Question about Mimbian Trooper - Solo (VC123)

Postby Michael Sith » Wed Apr 03, 2019 10:07 pm

I collect vintage in the main, however joint collect with my son. He is collecting quite a bit of modern and I was wondering if the
Mimbian Trooper - Solo (VC123) is an item that will be released UK, it seems from my limited research skills this is a Walmart exclusive?

Any advice would be welcomed

Thanks :D

Mike, unfortunately they have been and gone from the two sites that I use to pre order the VC ones that take my fancy (Star Action Figures and Darkside Toys)
There are a few on eBay, but they aren’t cheap!
Have you tried Taff, he’s very active in the modern figures?

Mike i think i may have a spare Solo Mimban MOC but i would have to check. When it comes to troopers i tend to grab a couple for army building but theres been that many lately i've lost count on what i have stashed away! If i can find him i'd be interested in a trade if you had any old MOC VC or theres a few old 6 inch BS i havent got if you had 1 of them. Any you have to be unopened tho please bud. Dont want to sell as id rather keep for an imp army scene if needed but if it means i can snag something i havent got then im all ears.

I was lucky enough to have one sent over from the states via a friend and was able to pic up one of the normal 5poa solo cards here in the uk, not seen any since then at all. Minimum availability for sure, its a shame as id like a 6inch BS mimban as well but same story. All is not lost though, friend of mine state side has mentioned has started to see a fair few of them pop up in batches in various stores so more are about than we think. Look at the black series Darth Maul, everywhere now at well under the lizard ebayer prices.

Ill keep a look out for you though just in case I come across another.

Mike, could I be cheeky to ask if you could look out for Dr Aphra MOC for me? would be most appreciated.
