Ian that's a very cool display mate clapping
We have an Aldi at our local shops, I'm on morning shift next week so I'll pop in on my way home on Monday afternoon and try my luck cheers Aldi do get some great stuff in but usually when it's gone it's gone and there's no more, I'm limited on my display room so something like that could work for me Very Happy

Intense clapping bowwing

I love how you've arranged everything. Nice touch having Boba with the ESB stuff, very contrarian lol

I recently got locks on my cabinets because I somehow have an 8 year old sister in law.

And I also live in an apartment lol

Only Kenner's & Kenner Canada, have the Kenner logo's on them. I think they call the Palitoy cards "hybrids", with the just the tri-logo text at the top. I'm not up on the Palitoy cards, so don't quote me on that.What a Face

My mother said, that she was never worried about letting me run around a big department store. She said that, she could always find me in the toy department looking at all the SW toys. cheeky

Heres something I picked up recently, as a kid I wanted this after seeing it in a catalogue, never got it, finally after thirty years its mine, might be a common piece and its a bit banged up, but i'm glad its mine,

That case looks good to me Ian. It's always particularly satisfying to acquire something you wanted as a kid.

Cheers mate, Its repro, didn't pay a lot for it, and it looks good on display, don't usually buy repro stuff but the case was such a good price (£10.00) I just had to have it
