Thanks, these are great fun to collect as they are “affordable” but can be tricky to find.
Of course I don’t know what @Gorneesh paid for his Bossk , but my Han Endor was too much, but I had to have him! :lol:
They have become very hard to find and if you do find them can be at silly prices.
There’s a Bossk and Leia Boussh on eBay Canada with a starting price over £60...
They normally are around the £35 - £40 if the seller knows his stuff, the hope is to find one that doesn’t... :wink:

Thanks, interesting that they are starting to creap up in price, or have they always been this much? Thanks again and have fun finding the others.

Nice Gig pick up @Mini99, I saw those ones on eBay Canada, actually tempted to pull the trigger on the Bossk.

You got any images of your red card run of them?

Here you go Stu.
As you know most of these are reasonably easy to pick up compared to the Green Italian cards, with the exception of Fett and the Stormtrooper.
I haven’t bothered with the long tray short sabre varients, I am happy with an example on the best condition card I could find.
Hows your run coming on now a days?

Some great new additions to your collection, everything looks fantastic and even though the 3.75 figures are not being that well severed any more at least there's still quality to be had. love the Luke X-Wing as well.

I think whilst we believe that we will see a heavily reduced amount of VC line, I do wonder if Hasbro are keeping a ton of stuff under their hat. It does need support though for sure. I collect the VC for the artwork mainly, and mostly my favourite characters and the 6inch BS range for the figures themselves. I'm slightly spoilt now with the box rework, and the rather nice carded 6inch stuff. Ill only have a few of those though as they are hard to display and protect, im waiting on some acrylic cases to come into stock for them.

Yep he landed this morning, small little thing. I like him to be honest but I know what you mean. I honestly think there was some sort of issue with getting these out right at the start, of the Mando' series going live. That or he should of been a pack in with mando' himself yet somehow missed the boat and didnt get put in for some reason or another. No number on the side of the box though, was he initially meant as an exclusive for a store?

For him to come packaged with Mando would have so much more sense than this.
I like him, but don’t love him...if you follow?

I know what you mean, I like him a lot but hes not amazing. It does lead me to believe he was meant for a release a lot earlier, I know production started for these longggg before the pre order had even gone up, was treated to a few production line images and might be able to snag a sneaky unfinished one. 8)

Think id of been a little more forgiving if he had his little floating crib, now is this Hasbros fault or Disney. They might of not even had access to images of it in the first place or known of its existence in the series.
