After a bit of a hiatus, here's my second die cast in a week. A Sears Landspeeder mailer, I've not seen many of these boxes with most seemingly J C Penney.

Very nice Mr. Spoons! Great to see a diecast 'speeder with an intact windshield and that one is a beauty!! :D

The cardigan is by far and away the coolest thing I've seen in ages. Awesome.

I can't argue with the others, the shirts are great (especially the Joe Dunton Cameras, never seen that before and a Revenge item as well!), but the cardigan is the business. Great find!

Amazing cardi!!! Love the T-Shirts too 8)

Don't tend to go for ROTJ MOCs, but the Gammo Guard was one of my favourite ROTJ figures as a kid. This one came up for sale (ex shop stock) and I couldn't resist. Thanks Matt F 8)

Good score on the moc Cazza

One of my favourite characters as a kid also, think it was because it was such a hefty figure and has a cool axe :D

I've not had much in the way of toy related acquisitions lately, but a couple of new autographs from our man Lando and Mr Fortuna.

Also, a bit of a vintage prop related result at the local car boot the other weekend, a 70s Tupperware tub and lid. You might think that a strange one but the lids from these were used for the headrests in the two rear seats of the Falcon cockpit and also as a part to the Sandtrooper backpacks.

That’s a great link TK - nice score. I’d never noticed the headrest parts of backpacks before

Nice Gammy too Andy, and what a Cardigan!
