Retro Collection

Post by BobbyCheese74 »

Ok, as I thought would happen I’m now collecting retro as well as vintage, eBay are evil, stormtrooper from wave 1 £30, I got solo and Vader for 9.99 each, if anyone sees them on offer or at a reasonable price, give me a shout, I’ve already spoken to Santa, he has my list :D

Happy Hunting

Just started collecting and plumped for Retro Collection. Wave 2 for £56 (6 figures) and Wave 1 (6 figures) ended up costing me £85 off eBay.
I have Wave 3 (7 figures) on pre order at £67.

There are 3 additional figures only available in board games for the Retro Collection.

1) General Tarkin which is only available when you buy the Star Wars Escape from Death Star Board Game
2) Luke Skywalker (Snowspeeder) which is only available when you buy Empire Strikes Back Hoth Ice Planet Adventure Game
3) Remnant Stormtrooper which is only available when you buy the Mandalorian Monopoly Board Game

The Mandalorian Board Game has it loose at the bottom of the game so you need to open it to retrieve the figure. I have done this and have the game on ebay for sale brand new minus the figure.
The other 2 board games have a gap so you can see the figure. Both are sealed in plastic so I have left them as is, the only problem is the game box's are quite large so in a quandary what to do with them as they don't fit in my cabinet. I could remove the figure and sell the games on ebay minus the figure but my thoughts are the whole game and figure intact leaves me with options.
