As always, some amazing pieces appear when you don't check in for a few weeks. special mentions for Walkie's poster - amazing!, Nick's upgrades - lovely dc and R2, and Stu's Greedo - what a beauty.

Here's the result of a trip to Hereford to see Roundster (and scarifpacific and clarkspieamdchips) - a Canadian Slave 1. Just a snowspeeder needed now for my basic Canada carded run

It's been a bit slow on the acquisition front lately but had a very busy week last week.

First up, Betamax copies of the Dairylea promo videos.

Next up, some boxed goodness. Not the best condition, but good enough for me.

And lastly, found this little fellow alone in a junk shop. Couldn't leave him there all alone for the sake of a couple of quid.

That's how I like them, too. This one is "perfect" (except the the fact that it is graded).
A bit worn up, but with a clear and uncracked bubble. Love it!

Great MOC.
But why would you pay to have it graded?
Beyond me, break it out I say!

No idea why they graded beyond “Hope”.

I think the low grade put people off, when it’s as good a nick as my other cards, as I like them “real”.

Not brave enough to break it out - but it’s lovely and been something I’ve been speaking for a while at a reasonable price.

Why pay to have anything graded? The inconsistency between the same grades is proven beyond doubt and yet grade chasers exist. But yes, grading takes on a new level of lunacy with (great!) pieces like this.

Nothing rare for me but Matt Fox did a super deal on these two stunning condition Palitoy Jedi cards. This is about the 4th Boushh I’ve had but the first one in truly lovely condition. I’ve always wanted a nice long bubble Chewie but never found one I was certain wasn’t a TT. These are part of a bigger find that are loft fresh having been bought off the shelf BITD, so I know, categorically; this is a non-TT Chewie.

Cheers Matt :)
