I’m delighted to finally get the UK Panini Jedi stickers store display box today, after years of searching, to complete my Panini run - box with (used) wrappers, unused sticker book, sealed packs, loose stickers, and comics run with promotional book and stickers offer.

what a collection, i read Buster and 2000AD at the time and those bags really take me back to the early 80's I remember ripping off the bags to find the stickers and book inside

So happy to share my latest vintage piece
12" Darth Vader courtesy of lejackal

I had Vader, Luke, Leia and both droids back in the day and now I'll definitely be hunting to pick them all up again.

He's a cracker but will have to rethink display options - he's too big for my "dolly" shelf 😁

I just got the box on the top left. This is a new sticker for me. If anyone knows anything about it then I'd be grateful for any information. From what I have read I have to assume this is from early 1985 when general mills restructured their toy divisions and palitoy adopted the kenner Parker name (according to Wikipedia). But presumably some toys were still produced or distributed from the palitoy site in the uk? Would this change also correspond to the trilogo change from pbp to gmj??

I’m finally able, and delighted, to share my recent Prop Store purchase, a mixed lot of crew gear from the Norway film location shoot for The Empire Strikes Back. This lot perfectly complements the jacket and balaclava that I purchased from Mr Harald Lystad, and allows me to display a full production issued and used crew outfit (except for the goggles, which aren’t production used but are the identical type). As a huge fan of the Hoth sequences in the movie, and the adversity that the cast and crew went through to get such wonderful footage, this really is a dream come true.

The hat has the name Kohler inside - location manager Philip Kohler - and the boots have the initials M G. I haven’t yet identified who this might be on the crew.

I’m still looking for an outer pair of ski trousers (with the full zipper down the outside of each leg) if anyone can help, please?

Further information on the crew gear, and on Mr Lystad’s part in the production, can be found here: https://www.ukstarwars.com/mr-harald-lystad

There’s been some fantastic items shown on here lately, congratulations to one and all.

I didn’t know where to post this so if it needs to be in the Modern section please feel free to move.😀

I’ve managed to pick up something that has been on my radar for a while but never had the opportunity to aquire.
I have been trying to complete a run of 2019 Chicago Star Tots the last few years and have now🤞(some are still on route) completed that run.
Whilst talking to a collector on the FB groups these 2016 vehicle medallions came up In conversation.
I have liked the look of these vehicle medallions, and after a bit we struck a deal for all 12 and to top it off the display Star Destroyer.

They are a lot bigger than I expected.
Now to work out a way yo display them!

Colin, Carl, Alisdair, Mike, Nick- fantastic buys! 8)

Andy, that crew gear is absolutely superb!!!

Haven't bought much at all lately, but pulled the trigger on this nice Palitoy ESB AT-AT. Have had a really nice bi-logo one since the mid-nineties, but as it's all about nostalgia for me, got the ESB one, as it's what I remember. I remember looking at them all longingly, stacked up on a plinth at the entrance of Cirencester Tesco Home and Wear. It was number 1 on my Christmas list 3 years in a row, but never got one.

I dont normally post my items that i pick up but today I came across this full size fiberglass Han solo carbonite and instantly fell in love with it. I didnt know where I would put it and I still dont but the wife was with me and said it was cool so I bought it.
Hi mate, after listening to the podcast and seeing your comments on the Han Carbonite I just wanted to let you know that it's not one of the 1997 or so Illusive concept ones. The one you have is a custom build that has been doing.the rounds on Ebay for a good few years. Still a good piece for£250 though
