So I'm in this uncommon position of having my collection spread over 2 continents these days, the bulk of which is not where I am.

So after getting reacquainted with it all recently I had this heart-stopping moment when looking in the display cabinet. All these figures I collected 20 years ago without any good knowledge of rare variants. So when my eyes caught sight of a Ben saber a little shorter than it should be time stood still:

One of those moments (almost) Almost10

Bear in mind this is the same collection that I recently discovered some great Toltoy cardbacks just "discarded" up the back of the cupboard along with a Toltoys death star playset. It was entirely possible this was a Ben DT saber that I just never paid any attention to before.

So I reached in, picked it up hoping ... but just another broken Ben single telescoping saber  Smile

On the plus side though, that is a black POTF endor blaster mixed up in Leia's hand. Ya win some, ya lose some!

Cheers, Jared.

Just try to remember that excitement you had for those passing seconds. Forget the crushing reality that followed
