Won these on the bay, not sure how many were in the set, but love the cardart on them, that regal image of Carrie

also got fett and a dr aphra 3 pack coming in from a fellow collector on here :D
What have you started...these really are rather good aren’t they.
I’ve just noticed that your three have matching price stickers, so must have been together since they were bought new.

Some good finds guys well done, Grinchy I can remember hunting for that set at the Entertainer for ages before finding a random one sitting on a till. Only way to get the little bat creature I think, Hasbro should do a set of creatures at some point.

:D glad i inspired you mini, at least theres not a pile of them to buy, a small sideline, i haven't found the other one yet, plenty of them about but i only paid around twenty quid for the three shipped, so holding out for a bargain, i like the stickers, they've been together all this time, glad i got them all together
Cheers mate, its definitely meant to be kept boxed which i will, i'm glad i waited for the price to drop a bit, i now have the same figure in 3 different boxes, its a sickness :D

Sounds like you had a cracking birthday, glad you had a good one. I really should grab hold of the speeder, no idea where ill put it but still kind of feels wrong not to. Not going to pay these dumb ebay prices though that I keep seeing.

Loving the display @grinchy 8)

Here's my only modern display- UK POTF2 Wave 1, 2 & SOTE. Have really good memories of getting these when they first came out- exciting times! Wanted it to look a bit like a mid-nineties shop display :) It's so easy to move them around and keep it fresh 8)
