Ah cheers mate, nice of you to say, i'll never be able to afford a master replicas falcon so this is the next best thing, need to redo the x wing as I donated the last one to a charity raffle, I have the unpainted one waiting to go, just need the weather to warm up a bit

cheers!
Started to collect another line, I believe there is only 13 figures in this wave, the ralph McQuarrie concept figures, should keep me busy for a while, hoping to get them all on a budget, the first three cost me around £20.00 with postage, I have an autographed trading card he signed later in life while ill so its just his initials but should look good in a starcase
got the first three figures in

This small line is one of my favorite, not to mention the 30th Anniversary is my favorite modern line! Before the pictures uploaded I was going to suggest you could also get the General McQuarrie they made in that line, but I see you thought about it too Wink

I'd love to complete that McQuarrie collection but there's just a couple of them that have gotten pretty steep.

I had the SDCC exclusive Obi-Wan & Yoda 2 pack for a while but I traded it for a loose complete Leia that was really white lol

Yeah they are a good size, haven't got many of them, hard to display them being so big, need to put up some shelves I think
