I've always been jealous of some of you guys who have figures from when you were kids.

I had a good collection of Star wars when I was a kid and me and my brother used to have a patch of garden
where we would build tunnels and bases. Mum and Dad built a greenhouse on that patch about 20 years ago.

I then went onto to sell all my Star Wars stuff for next to no money many years ago at a CarBoot Sale

Went round to my parents house yesterday and they have demolished the old Greenhouse to replace it.

They leveled out the ground to put slabs down and they found this...

Not the most exicting of figures, but I was genuinely stoked that they had unearthed one of my original figures. This will now stand very proudly in my display cabinet. Cool

Nice one, it doesn't look too bad for a tunnel rat. And it didn't turn into the tan limb variant Razz

I had a similar experience last year Stu its an awesome feeling to find a childhood figure after so many years of not having one!

These are my childhood figures unearthed at my mums in 2009 and pictures of my starwars cake my mum made for my 6 birthday Smile

Very cool guys!
The only thing I have from my childhood SW is a SW sound track record.
Sold my SW to buy Joes. I still have no idea what happened to all my Joes.
