a taun taun for £10 with intact reigns from a collector shop in rhyl last year

from ebay.


a beat up 4lom moc for £8

a kenner emperor moc with italian import sticker for £15.

a biker scout trilogo moc for £20! ahhhhhh

this year i missed out on a beater squidhead trilogo moc for £40 but the kicker with that was it was a weapon error (biker scout blaster) was packed with it

When I first signed up to ebay in 2007 I was a proliffic buyer as it gave me access to items I thought I'd never find  in the 'wild', but I had limited finances. It stickis in my mind that I watched some loose DT Lukes (which I hesitated over) sell for around £100 and DB Rebel Soldiers go for around £85.00. Seeing what they go for now I could kick myself, but I have no regrets as I have acquired many bargains through ebay, car boot sales & toy fairs which have more than compensated. Very Happy

Not many buying regrets though I do I regret not buying a dianoga trash monster years ago at a car boot sale for 2 pound as I didn't recognise it as a star wars item, doh!

When I first got into the hobby as an adult about 4 1/2 years ago I passed up on a couple of DT Luke's and a vinyl Cape Jawa as I thought I'd pick them up at a later date, still hav'nt added them and look at the price they go for these days jaw

and I regret not grabbing tons and tons of overstock from kaybee toys when I worked there as a teenager as a kid . there were bins that we just filled to the max with these things.
I thought about it but decided I was too old to collect them anymore . probably around 86 or maybe 88 Sad lol dumbass
