Great idea for a thread Chris  Very Happy Three mates and myself had a small betting syndicate this year (2 pound a week each and take it in turns to bet on whatever you want, football/horses/lottery ect, any winnings go in the pot to share out at end of year) I got nearly enough to get a figure I've wanted for a long time  cheers

I will have to say this photo of Carrie Fisher that I just bought the other day is by far my fav thing for 2016, even though she is not in any Star Wars outfit she is still Leia and there for counts in my book.

It was a tough decision as I finally landed a VC Jawa this year but this brings back some great memories as it was the first figure I ever owned many moons ago Very Happy

That is a beautiful Zuckuss. Man it's really hard to not call it 4-LOM lol just got a complete one myself with my favourite item of the year. Outrageous gun with him.

I got a couple moc's this year but I think my favourite thing might be this beater Luke Stormtrooper, if a Luke stormtrooper can even be called a beater Neutral complete tho lol picked him up on the 29th.

My favorite pickup of 2016, it's far from being perfect as the bubble is cracked and the gun is loose inside of it, but I love it!

Jeez those really do have a lot of extra space in the bubbles depending on the figure. Very nice though.

Yes they didn't bother making different ones, so you got to have Chewie and Ewoks fitting into the same bubbles lol!

I had a pretty quiet year on the buying front but I did manage to score this little bugger from someone who contacted me on my blog. Made it a bit special for me.

It was in her father's storage so I guess technically this was found 'in the wild.'
