I love the latest additions being posted here.

Bill that Meccano Tusken is a beauty. Around 7 years ago I was lucky enough to get a minty Hong Kong version at a toy fair for the princely sum of £5.00 reduced from £10.00. lol!
The seller clearly didn't know what they had. Needless to say I purchased a few other half price figures aswell. Wink

Here's another update from this purchase -

I have been slowly working my way through all the newspaper clippings that were in the lot but not shown in the auction pics . Here are a few group pics :

I believe everything so far on that page was in the lot I purchased cheers

I've only made it through a little over half of the newspaper stuff and still have a bunch of articles and even a few of the black and white comic strips that I need to document  What a Face


and then there's still a bunch of film cells that I know nothing about st00pid

just got this kickass small v power droid on the left .
here he is compared to the much more common large v one .

quite possibly one of the most boring and hardest variants to track down ive ever tried to acquire
for one thing most people don't know they have him and the second thing is that its very hard to tell from just a picture without a comparison shot .

differerences are smaller v, smaller sticker , smaller body and paint apps . also the grooves on the top of the figure are much shallower

Im very excited to finally have a variant of everyones favorite figure the mighty power droid yay

no really I am excited ... check it !!! stick whew lol! lol!
