The book - yes

The black cover are the archives from 77-83 (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Star-Wars-Arch ... 150&sr=8-3)

The red cover are the archives from 99-05 (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Star-Wars-Arch ... 150&sr=8-1)

Despite the new films not being as good i hope they do a volume that covers them so we have a complete 'set'

The OT version is amazing. Be careful if you’ve got back problems like me. It’s weighs a bloody ton.

Well after a complete soaking courtesy of our wonderful weather on the beach, I came home to find this waiting for me.... :twisted:
Still doing some posing work and finding a way to adjust the feed pipes, it also hit me that although the fuel tank valves are orientated correctly ie one facing out and one canted inwards so you can adjust it whilst wearing the thing, the whole thing is upside down......A star wars anomaly right there. Having said that, some early forms do have them ontop but I think in this case it would of been slightly less awkward. I get the feeling this guy is going to be a bit of a pain to get hold of like the shock trooper, ill take some better pics once I have got him how I want later.

Now I don't do plugs for companies unless I have purchased from them and had good experiences, so I feel its deserved and I'm happy to support others that I feel should get a shout out, especially when they are a forum member too I think?

Ians display accessories.......
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10-x-Star-Wa ... 2749.l2648

I thought id give these a go and ordered 10, In the hopes I can finally find a easily obtainable base that fits a wide variety of the Black Series figures. Well I believe the little venture was successful. All of the troopers fit perfectly, nice and snug even Tarkin that is notorious for taking a nose dive and taking out anything in his path.

So far I have only found the ERG figures need a bit of gentle persuasion but they fit nicely once you have worked the base lugs into the holes, now not all figures are created equally, both ERGs peg hole tolerances are slightly different however they still worked just fine.

Vader though, and this is the nice new one just released so might only be relevant for that specific Vader. Both of his peg holes are so tight it just was not possible, I took a small file to shave a little bit off both base lugs and tested it. Job done, a nice snug fit too and I'm sure everyone is more than capable of making a slight modification, It would be impossible to have a perfect fit for 100s of figures released over the past ten or so years but so far so good.

They are oval in shape and are a slightly frosted plastic overall a nice clean design that works well, definitely give these a go if you are looking for something for your figures.

All of my bases have come from Ian, top bloke who produces top quality display stands. 👍

Your figures display looks awesome 👍😃

Acquisitions- both modern and vintage are the best threads. Always enjoy skim reading them.

Here is a 1996 Luke Jedi GIG POTF2.

Along with Bossk and Leia Boushh- definitely the hardest to find.

Congratulations Grant,
Lovely condition too.
I’m still short of a Bossk and Leia too if you find a stash...😔

Hondos' R5 unit arrived yesterday :P

If anyone fancies swapping Hondo with the first order emblem on the box for the rebel version let me know. Currently looking over some ROTJ Han Luke and Leia, I think this version of Han might just be the best we have had so far in my opinion. Pics in a bit :P
