Arnold, those two droids are cool... and R2 and 3PO are looking pretty cool too Smile

Cool standups and would look really good as centrepieces to a display.

I really dont have too much free space to display them.
Thats why they (r2+3po) are just standing in the childrens room. But the younglings like them! Smile

Great Collection you got there skywalkerhu, love how minty your figures are.

You know: "There is always a bigger fish!"

Yes, but I used to say: "There is always a better figure!" lol!

Thats why I still buy great lots and complete collections from other collectors. (from Germany, USA, Canada, Austria and UK)
In this way my collection is always moving/changing.
There are always a few better figures in these lots to upgrade my collection.
And this is a great opportunity to be in contact and help other (especially locally in Hungary) collectors to grow their collection. Because in this way I always have many spare figures to sell.

The best way to build a collection IMO mate plus you never know what you really have until you check them out.
I love the updates to Very Happy

the enjoyable part(s) of this hobby:

- hunt down great lots
- scan them through
- find top pieces / rare versions
- keep them / upgrade the collection
- pass them away, make great deals, chat with other collectors, to be in contact etc...

thats the way I keep my collection "alive"

That ESB Droid factory box is not the easiest to find. And obviously the Hungarian fan club comic is quite rare. I wonder how many languages Star Wars has been translated in?

Seriously, congrats finishing your loose collection.

dunno, really Smile)))
I think I sold my old Dengar or so (which was only MINT instead of minty-mint) and forgot to replace him Smile
some weeks ago I wanted to show my vintage bounty hunters to my son, and... "oh my Gosh! where is Dengar????" Smile))

my next collecting goal is going to be the "French Touch" book from Stephane Faucourt which will be a nice addition to my Miro-Meccano documentaries

and maybe some DeAgostini vessels

Already commented on the Pif Gadget goodies elsewhere but will say again Cool!

That's a well minty Taiwan Fett too! And funny how an innocent little Playmobil robot made it into Star wars collecting lore! It's almost like the GE5P droid is an honourary figure.

What do you think about it's name? GE = Geobra (Playmo license), 5 (?) P = Playmobil thinking

First time I saw him as a PIF advert (with the cosmos guy and cool spacecrafts) decades before and the first thing I thought about: "Wooww, Playmobil Star Wars figures!!!" Smile
