Love the stamp album for a quid. You might also like the SW Spaceships stamps from the same company Harris & Co...

Will do, Artoo. I'll take some better pictures for that section. 

These are today's pick up's. Around 40-50 comic issues for £15. Issue number 4 onwards with some gaps. Surely a good deal I thought. 

£15 for both sizes of figures with stands. Not in great condition, but surely worth a little more.

Finally!!! I managed to pick these up yesterday, ended up paying 30p each. I'll clean some up for my son to play with, the others can be swapped or used for customs.

Poor Han, it looks like someone re-enacted the scene from the film when he's released from the block of carbonite....

lol!

... seems the CCP was battered while standing next to Han when he was frozen in carbonite ... or has he just been retrained for working at a slaughterhouse? Wink

What a nice thread! Love these kinds of finds, although they're becoming more scarce these days with all of the online dealing.

Spending this weekend at my parents' place and decided to take some boxes with old toys from the attic....

It was big fun to sort out the different Playmobil and Playbig lines: knights, construction workers, fire brigade, indians, etc.





Finally ended up with my beloved sets of Playmospace. Still in good condition and almost complete.
And had some fun with them. Very Happy

Thanks for watching.

Great pics, Marco, the Playmo Space line is really cool cheers
Must be nice to find some of your old toys, and they're in nice condition too.

Thanks Alexander and Paul. Very Happy

it was big fun to go through the boxes of old toys.

Big thanks to Stef and his Playmospace Thread, which reminded me I had one of those R2 knock offs as well, when I was a child.
