Two recent trilogo pick ups; one of my favourite Lukes and old Testical Head himself. Prune Face was so very nearly cheap enough to join the MOCs Under £50 club, so chuffed with that.

Lastly this came in a large auction lot and please to add it to my autograph collection.

V nice Chris! I Love the Luke Poncho, always have esp on the Tri-logo 8)

Quality autograph too. I had the pleasure of meeting Bruce Boa many years ago at a little convention in Basildon Essex. He came out on stage and simply introduced himself with;
"Hello! Bruce Boa. Empire Strikes Back, Waldorf salad."

Great stuff :D

Don't know anything about baggies, looks nice though. How do you display them?

That's a good question, I don't! They are all just kept in a box. You can put them in acrylic cases or grade them, but IMO they still do not look great. They are one of those things that look and feel nice in your hand, but that's all you can really do with them. I guess they would look quite nice laid out in a display case if I had one, but not at the moment.

I've always thought they would look good in architect drawers, would be cool to pull a draw out and it's full of baggies.

That's a good idea display them horizontally.

why chase perfection. after looking for years for a minty white x-wing.

i came across this in a joblot. it has all its original decals and cockpit cover and quite yellowed. its landing gear was broken and r2d2 dome was very worn and wing mechanism wasnt working. i thought as all its decals were present and cockpit cover why not get her going.

a quick clean with some wetwipes a a rummage through my spare parts its got now got a good clean dome guns and landing gear wing mechanism working and is play and display worthy.

before and after shots below :)
