I'm in the same boat Matt! I snagged the vader prototype from ID but forgot about the fett and red stormie pre order times and missed out. There is still hope tho buddy as SAF havent put them up for pre order yet so go on there and register interest and they will email you the moment theyre up for grabs.

So
I have gone EP1 mad and over the next week lots of lovely goodies will arrive so I will save that show and tell for one post, but this arrived today. Retro style escape from Death Star game with figure. Very nice, now need the first wave of retro figures to get here....

So the photos start now.
Still waiting haul to arrive, might be tomorrow now...
But a few of these two packs have started to filter in. Never owned any of these back in the day, love them. I assume there are fifty of them out there, would make sense, but if anyone knows shout out, I have seven here and another five or six on the way.

Seen a few I like but the price is daft (180 for a 3PO and droid two pack....)

Anyway, enjoy.

Got to love the Ep1 cards, especially the twin packs!
I had a near full run of these twin packs back in the day, the droid added in place of the Commtech chip “thingy” which some countries did not take.
There was also 15 combinations of figures with Pit droids, these seem to be more expensive to pick up.
There are only 28 to collect, this was going to be my next Modern run, once I’ve completed my POTF2 Italian Red card run, which I still have two to find (Fett and Luke X Wing if anyone can help!) and they are proving to be very hard to find.
This link is very good for Ep1. See page 39 onwards.

And if your intrested these are also good for modern

Hey
Great links, haven’t seen those before. The EP1 book looks great.

I will have to get all 28 of the 2 packs with droids I think.I have managed to buy fifteen in the last three days (so need to stop now). The pit droids look good as well but somehow the battle droids look better. I suspect that will be a hard little sub-line to collect.

Lots of goodies in the post today.
The full 50 are in pretty good nick, a few cards showing age but as a set which cost under £5 a card pretty good.

Three more EU 2 Packs as well.

Now I need to get a lot of star cases to make sure the cards are preserved.... will cost as much as the figures :)

Nice collection monkey_roo 8)

I have always liked the graphics on the episode 1 cards, very vivid colours, will look great in Star cases :D

Last weeks finds, and the only bit of vintage I have come across in the wild in the past few months. At least its one of my favourites :D
