Was that a miss card @Grant_C ? :lol: I remember arguing with my sister over the fact that he was the Emperor, she wouldn't believe me! :lol:

I picked this up this week, never seen one before, but of course that doesn’t make it rare where “Modern” is concerned.
This is a MISB Sand Trooper with his ride, in Italian GIGI packaging, which those that know me is my Modern focus.

Nice score Mini! I'm biased because I was 7 or 8 when that came out and I thought the action feature on the jaw was the best thing ever. That's the first time I've seen that packaging variant.

Here's my latest modern piece:

Saw one deliberately hidden behind some pokemon product in EB Games (Canadian Game Stop) and couldn't resist. I tend to open these. I thought about cropping out the vectrex and vintage heavy metal but the pic lost a lot of character :lol:

Nice one @The89thchrisI wondered when someone would post one of these.
These are a bit too modern for me, but the Vintage range of vehicles is pretty impressive.
Apologies, I’ve not been over on Tantive for a while. :oops:

Indeed very nice pick up sounds like you beat a staff member who hid it for when he/she was off shift. I have got the troop transport on pre order, It will get here at some point in the year :lol: :x :roll:
