I don’t think I will be wearing these out any time soon!
:lol:


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:

What are you doing down here amongst the Modern pages?
Couldn’t resist these for my loose R2 intrest, they popped up on FB marketplace, less than 1/2 mile away, and at give away price, well they would have to be wouldn’t they! :lol:
I bet these sold really well when they were full price....what were they thinking!
Sorry to let you down, but even my dainty feet won’t be sliding into these fashion statements any time soon.
Glad you like and covet them! :roll:

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 have two of the Dexter Prototypes too, I thought about doing a similar display with them as you have done but have never managed to get around to it.

Nice couple of Dexter’s, did you buy them graded or get them done yourself?
Great to see a pipe variant one.
