AT-AT is always a great item, love.

There were some lovely Forest Rangers at the last C&T auction. Scary prices! Seen quite a few about in the last couple of months but it is most certainly on my wants list and that is a stunning example. Lovely addition :)

NFS - Possibly one of the quirkiest pick ups in a long time which I thought was worth sharing....

I was lucky enough to recently purchase a small collection of star wars related ephemera which a lady had inherited from her late uncle. Within the collection of oddball paperwork was this pencilled vintage era comic adaptation for return of the jedi. Now her uncle isn't a know comic book artist (i've managed to turn up no info yet to say otherwise) and whilst the layout & artwork is totally different from the official marvel version the written dialogue does match the movie having checked several scenes. The comic is 68 pages long, but sadly 1 page is missing and a few have come loose from the front of the A4 note pad which still has an original price tag on the rear for 74p. Also included within the collection was a hand rendered logo and 2 pages for a comic adaptation of a new hope. So possibly there was 3 full strips or this was a work in progress of what could have been...??

That's a great find. Perhaps you could find someone who could recreate the missing page in a similar style?

A few new additions picked up over the last few months - apologies for the poor pictures - beautifully enhanced by some GW Acrylic.

After months of abstaining from making expensive purchases, this came across my path and I couldn't pass it up.
Been really wanting an example of this MOC for quite a while, a Palitoy 45 C Princess Leia Organa!

The card is slightly curved, with a small pinch on one corner of the bubble, other than that she looks great. I love seeing this figure on a ROTJ card with a CLEAR BUBBLE! She looks absolutely amazing to me.
Pop her in a GW Acrylic case and she looks even better!
