Surely Slave1 would TopTrump (in coolness alone) another other Star Wars vehicle?

So!
Who's everyone's favourite character?

Bib Fortuna all the way for me. Big nasty head with a tiny creepy face, easily duped, has a nice coat, got blown up on a sail barge...
And that's all I know about him! Haven't read any expanded universe stuff, silly me.

The Bomarr Monk is actually from the post-'95 Kenner range - it was available in a mail-away promotion in America.
Shinobi wrote: Where did you get the stands from for your smaller figures?
Ebay. They are readily available though not exceptionally cheap. Just make sure you search for vintage figure stands as the more recent ones had a different sized hole in their feet.
Shinobi wrote: I doubt I'd ever manage to get Yak Face or Blue Snaggletooth
I got Yak Face relatively cheaply - £40-ish if I recall. Blue Snag cost me the best part of £100 though... Madness! :o

I like the original trilogy(non cgi) but not keen on 1,2 but 3 I'd enjoyed.
Pity they can't do something between revenge & star wars + after return of the jedi.
Also it's a shame that won't be doing 7,8 & 9 to complete the series we never know.

I don't think we know where the new live action series fits in the timeline yet, that could hit that gap, covering the jedi hunts.

I've read that they've suggested the live action series will be 'darker' so i'm hoping its more adult than for kiddies. But obviously they dont want to push those fans away, but i'm really looking forward to it.

Enjoy listening to all the hype before hand and rumours, so far its been very secretive

At-Ats were cool , but too big to do much with play-wise. Great as an ornament now , but as a kid you wanted to PLAY with them.
Always thought Slave 1 was pretty naff tbh , my favourite was either (battle damaged!) Snowspeeder or the ultra-cool Tie-Fighter

Btw does anyone remember Star-Birds Avengers and Intruders? Although not officially Star Wars , they were really cool

It would indeed, especially as it was a European exclusive so the Yanks go crazy for it! I don't think the Jabba playset is worth an exceptional amount, although the accessories (Salacious Crumb and the pipe/hooka combo) have gone missing from a lot of them...

I have the Salacious Crumb figure from Jabbas set somewhere if you want it (pm me if interested). Pretty good condition from what i can remember. that aside though, fantastic collection you have there!
