The price has just dropped on them (after I bought my ones)
They do look great - very vintage.

Ill just post this one here as I cant be arsed with peoples idea of ''wrong thought'' and deranged level of idiocy exhibited on other forums. :roll: :lol: Yup I'm a Carano fan, deal with it. :lol:

When I can, ill get the VC card signed and cased. Really looking forward to adding Koska Reeves and Bo, and I do hope we get a nice hobo Boba thrown in for good measure. Oddly enough, i'm looking forward to the Q9-0 droid as it would be something completely new, I wonder if we would get some of the Republic security droids too.

Picture is fine. Where can I get similar display cases? I currently have my retro collection in a glass cabinet but the case looks like it stands upright. My only concern would be less room if I had all my figures in the cases.

Thanks

They look like “Star cases” for the VC range that “sundance Squadron” has there.
I don’t think that they make Star cases for the Retro collection.
However Deflector and GW Acrylic do make cases for your range.

Those are indeed star cases, sometimes you'll find the same design rebranded by others. They fit both Vintage collection (modern) and Vintage mocs just fine so I cant imagine you having any issues with the retro cards. They do however take up a bit more space on the shelf though, its one of those trade offs that you have to think about.

Arrived today, I gave my original Thrawn away to a friend a while ago so was happy to get another for the imperial shelf. The original was already nice, this one is an improvement though. Shame i'm going to open him though.... :lol: Luke isnt to bad at all, posing him is a little problematic though due to the old style trooper body but I am glad to have him at last. Now do I look for the old Han? Anyone got one they are willing to let go of? I'm hearing news of a archive New Hope Leia with a much improved face print improvement so I will pick her up finally. I have ignored all the other versions of her.

Got a link? Not familiar with them? Both are very nice indeed and i'm kind of surprised they have become available again, I do wonder what else would pop up to be honest.

R2, C3P0 and Jedi Luke are proving problematic, was tons of them about at one point.hmmmm

Cases arrived from Deflector at the weekend and they are excellent however although branded as Retro Collection cases the Empire Strikes Back wave of figures don't fit due to them being slightly deeper. I have7 figures now without the case but these are in my glass display cabinet and they caseless I can fit more in. I have just bought an R2D2 storage box as I have realised I cant display everything even though I have 7 in cases on my picture rail!

Decided to open Thrawn, and put him back onto his rightful place with the others. Also having a bit of a shuffle about, not happy with it just yet but a work in progress. Something completely unrelated to Star Wars has taking refuge too, a worthy addition and managed to nab her for well under retail.
