I love the Mos Eisley set, Very cool mate. You have so many of these sets now. I bet your miniature collection looks impressive all together. Do you have them on display, or would they take up too much room?

Thanks Guys What a Face

The Mos Eisley set was one of my favorites to paint cheers

I think I only have 2 more of the original box sets to complete painting .

Empire Strikes Back - Still need to paint all 10 figures
Rancor - I have painted the Keeper but not the monster yet

Thanks Ian cheers

I promise to do a group shot of all the miniatures once I have them all painted Very Happy .

I forgot there is one box set I won't be painting - the Space Troopers - I think there the worst set by far tongue

There are a few small sets that came out later in the blister packs that I'll be doing too though - Dark Stryder Crew , Heir to The Empire etc...

Thanks for the info on Zardra. It was a interesting read.

I'm assuming the Rebel Merc & Rebel Scout mostly work for the Rebels? lol!

The Ig-88 is actually one of my favs - thought he turned out pretty good for having so little color choices to work with Very Happy

Added some neat 1993 WEG sets to the library that were never available in the original 1988 - 1990 box sets :

In 1996 and 1997 there were  2 different Star Wars Monopoly Games released . The molds for the Monopoly game tokens were apparently reused from the 1987 - 1990 West End Games figure box sets .

1996 Set :

1997 Set :

The WEG figures are made of lead and the Monopoly tokens are made of pewter . The Monopoly figures are slightly smaller . Here's a few side by side comparisons :
