Hello all, Im New to the Forums, I just recently dug out some of my Star Wars stuff I had when i was a kid, some of its missing parts some of my figures are missing completely, others it looks like my dog at the time chewed off the legs. Anyway I was gonna start with restoring my Millenium Falcon to close to original condition. As i was cleaning it though there are spots of Yellow that just wont go away. Im also missing the hatch that lowers down, the chess table (though I might have a good idea where that is) the stow compartment plate and some of the stickers are pretty rough. (Stow compartment plate, and Chess table found)

My At-At is missing the Battery cover inside.

My Tie Interceptor is missing its battery cover.

Im missing the handles from my speeder bike as well as the little flaps that go on the back. (Flaps and 1 handle found)

My Snow speeder from Empire is missing the window frame/ hatch. Not sure if it needs anything else.

My X-wing is missing its canopy as well as 2 of the guns. Some of the stickers are pealing off, and the front landing gear is broke off.

Boba Fets Ship is missing a wing and the cargo cover too. Stickers are also pealing pretty bad. (Cargo cover found)

Im also missing some of the weapons including lightsabers and some of the plastic cloaks from various characters. 1 Lightsaber found (Yellow flat handle lightsaber)

So I guess my work is cut out for me.

I cant post pictures though unfortunatly for 7 days.

Enjoy!

Thank you all for the warm welcome! That image rocks!

So ive been looking hard for some of the stuff im missing, for example Luke Skywalker in the black Jedi suit, Bespin Princess Liea (spelling), I believe I had another one of Jaba's Pig like gaurds, the Squid looking character that serves Jaba and wakes him up when he falls asleep, Also the 2 Legged walker from Return of the Jedi. The Force tells me when i find that walker i will most likely find the missing figures with it. Im running out of places to look though.
