Just wondering if anyone else collects Pre Production modern pieces?
I’ve had the Yoda for a while now, and only this week picked up the Tusken female with child and Dexter.
These can be found all over eBay, but are harder to pick up with all the accessories as these all have.
I know that they will never be as desired or as valuable as vintage ones, but I find them interesting.
I have displayed them infront of the retail card that they were sold on to show the difference.
If anyone else has any I would love to see what you have.

I always find prototypes and pre production stuff interesting, in most cases I seem to always find the protos' more interesting or better than the approved releases. Good stuff, working looking out for them for sure in my eyes.

Here’s something a bit different!
R2 Birkenstocks with The force Awakens images over the box.
I don’t think I will be wearing these out any time soon!

Mini99 - agree with above. Love the display. I know you have seen this but think your displaý method is a great idea.

But if a repeat.
But close up of the two Dr Aphra figures. Best I can tell they are identical.

I didn't have you down as a dedicated follower of fashion, Nick. I'd better see you sporting these at the next Farthest From or there'll be hell to pay. :wink:
