Interesting idea. They look like an uncut sheet that way. cheers

Took a couple more pics of the x wing and falcon, as well as my big tie fighter, these are the favourite parts of the collection

Here's one of my favourite custom figures, Kenny Baker in R2, action figure scale, not the best likeness at this scale but still pretty cool

doing some dusting, decided to take a couple of pics of my elite series vaders, I have the 35th anniversary version and the standard release, they are quite heavy pieces, not sure how much is diecast metal, but they look good on the shelf, had a problem with the jedi version, the removable hand has come of in the package, don't want to break the seal to fix it so its just rattling round in the box

Interesting. I'm surprised they would come out with another scale.

Well there's not much difference between them and the black series, apart from the diecast parts, black series is the superior line in my eyes better detailing and paintwork, but the elites are still nice to collect

Just picked this up from ebay, I really liked Rogue one, and I saw this figure when it first came out but was skint at the time so had to leave it, just browsing through ebay and found it for 13.50 delivered, half the original price so I grabbed it, no idea where i'm going to put it but that never stopped me before  Very Happy

That 35th anniversary Vader was a tough one to find. I tried my local Disney store and the guy said they were sold out 15 min after the store opened. rofl

I think that is the only item to have that anniversary logo, except maybe a lithograph set that came out at the same time.

Another figure I've been after for a while, the gammo guard, this has been my favourite figure done so far in the vintage collection, I've had him loose for ages now got a nice carded example

just ordered this guy from star action figures, on sale for £9.99, thought that was a decent price, hell of a great likeness, love the photo real tech they are using on newer black series

So force Friday over here was a bit of a damp squib, no toys r us so no big midnight opening anywhere local, decided to do my shopping online, star action figures in the uk were the exclusive retailer for the carbonised mandalorian, so went with them, midnight last night, website was supposed to go live, but it crashed due to popular demand, it couldn't handle the traffic, so I spent the next hour and a half trying to buy something, finally snagged the mando, but couldn't get near to anything else
the mando looks nice a bit different than the standard release bit of a paint difference
