I hadn't planned on buying any stuff until my wife and I got into our new house...hope to finish negotiations on that this week.  Someone pointed me to this and I couldn't resist.

Hopefully another Vlix will show up evenflow, that's still a good price it went for.

That's probably the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in my life.

I just managed to grab Warok, Romba and an Imperial Dignitary with no nose damage on Ebay. Once they arrive I just need A-wing Pilot and Blue Snaggletooth to complete my loose vintage collection ;D
It was only 8 months ago I decided to star the collection, I won't be collecting anything else from the vintage lines though I only really wanted the figures... I may pick up/make the occasional vintage custom too add to them but other than that my vintage collecting is finished. I did start getting in to variations but when I had 3 farm lukes 5 obi-wans etc i decided to stop and sold them on and just kepy my favoutire variation.

Just grabbed myself a sneaky a-wing pilot in a job lot at a bargin price ;D
Just need to grab a blue snaggletooth now. No way can I afford a mint condition one anything above C7 will do.

I've been meaning to do it for a few months now but have been a little hesitant due to the price of those last 17 figures on U.K Ebay compared to what they were about 6 months ago when i first started collecting.
Now I've actually got them all out and displayed in my store (I just havent got the room at home) in a glass cabinet I decided to take the plunge and get them.
I'm hoping to get snaggletooth this week theres a few on Ebay that I've got my eye on and at the minute there going for good prices so nows the time to get one.
Once I have them all in hand I'll get a few photos of the collection.

michael a nice pickup, the ISP-6 is one of my favorite mini-rigs and the box is especially pleasant to the eye.

my latest pickup, just 5 more to go...



the sticker is a bit yellowed, but what R2 really doesn't have this affliction?
