got this guy as a gift from a friend, same one I got the hoth han set from, bit beaten up, but still a decent figure, not a great likeness, what is it about Mark Hamill's likeness that company's can't get it right, I wonder, but happy to have him in the collection

And finally the child came in a massive box this was just sitting in a load of bubble wrap, palpy there for scale

this is surprisingly tiny, more in scale with the smaller scale not 6 inch, maybe its just me

Cheers mate, i only have about ten vintage figures plus loads of modern, but shipping is getting out of hand, my last order from the states cost me more in shipping than the item itself, shame as theres loads i'd like to get from overseas

Good choice! I haven't seen the second wave in Canada yet. I picked up the Luke Bespin just because I didn't have any other black series Luke figures and that one looked pretty good. Wouldn't mind having the ROTJ one but I never really saw it here, despite the fact that there were tons on clarence in the states. I'd probably get that R2 if I saw it. Then again, got the VC Slave I recently so I should slow down the modern purchases... lol

Just got this in metallic collector cards, just thought they were a nice set to get, have to laugh at the limited edition, over 40 thousand copies, so not limited at all really Laughing

Interesting pick up Ian. Are the images similar to the Topps/O-Pee-Chee vintage cards?

Looks like a fantastic set Ian.

Luke training is one of those figures that Kenner should have done back in the day.
