I’ve received this lot in the post this week, from a recent auction win. A good mix of items, and mostly in great condition. Some rare items that are new to me, and some good upgrades to pieces I already have - really pleased with these.

Looking for Leia Hoth on any Palitoy ESB card. Damaged card, cut bubble or reseall would be OK.
Also any non-toy vintage British items esp. store displays, advertising & promotional items, and cast & crew or prop items.

That ESB Vymura folder is a great piece to have, i only managed to track one down last year, these are pretty scarce mate.
Does it have the letters and photos inside?

Wow haven’t been on here for a while, but the podcast reminded me to get back on it

Rich - awesome Yoda and 3 pack for your loose collection :lol:
Spoons - that Canadian 47 Back looks lovely
Andy - lovely to see the PYE display they were banging on about of the VR podcast. Epic.
Carl - that’s the first piece of Sigma I’ve actually seen that I wouldn’t mind owning :lol:
Nick - cracking Mecanno 12bk Jawa
Bruce - lovely Leia 12b, the SW Leia artwork is one of my favourite card backs
Jez - what a beauty of a Palitoy 20bk

Here’s a little something for my loose collection. Picked up the PBP figure with regular Hoth Rifle with PBP card back unnoticed on eBay and moved the card on, enabling me to pick up a loose SA80 rifle for a reasonable price and still be quids in. Happy days. :D

Picked up a Parker Brothers ROTJ store display. dated 1983. Unused and in pristine shape. It’s my first display of any kind. Very pleased. Now to find some sealed games to go with it.

Another new acquisition this week - a UK Empire press release issued from Elstree Studios, dated about April 1979, bound in booklet form between glossy covers featuring the early McQuarrie ‘Vader in flames’ logo. The press release has 16 pages and gives details on the production including the recent completion of filming in Finse, key information about cast and crew, a synopsis of the story, and contact details for the publicists. It’s a lovely British production item and a great addition to my collection.

That’s a lovely piece Andy, the front cover is beautiful.
Where has that been hiding the last 38 years?
