I was very pleased to add this PBP Lando paint error figure to my small Lando focus, it was from the collection of our late good friend Steve Pullman who I know was very fond of this figure, it means a lot for me to look after it now  Very Happy

After thinking about this for a while, it’s gotta be my 12B Canadian R2-D2. I didn’t expect to have any Canadian 12 backs and the only reason I have this one is because someone submitted this little guy to AFA and he got a 50. rofl

I love it, look at it, and enjoy it regularly. popcorn

All, great buys guys, I haven't bought that much this year, a few boxed minirigs and this scout walker box complete with insert and instruction Manuel, in the new year i'll see about getting a walker to complete it, but this box I love, the artwork is just great

Great items guys.
I think I did my favorite 2018 purchase, when I went for a trip to Brussels and found this piece in the store-window of a comic-shop.

... close to this old General Mills Poster (168 x 119 cm) you could get for a small amount in german toy-stores in the good old days.
This one was found in an WWII bunker where it was wallpapered on the plaster and carefully removed.
Paid a fortune of € 1 on ebay on this piece.
