heres some pics, first up the stand itself, then a falcon resting on it, i love the flight angle,

I like the Roy Lichtenstein style artwork on the card. These proto Fett figures have been going for crazy prices on release. Apparently there are six colour variations to collect too.

Yeah i do like the artwork, I've seen the vader that is going for big money, they are also doing a stormtrooper, not sure if i'll get them, and i'll be sticking to one colour combo, not going down that expensive rabbit hole, lol

Nice figures Ian. cheers
I wish Hasbro would make more unproduced figures like Tarkin.
The multi coloured figures look great and would fit nicely into any custom figure collection.
