Bill, what is the Falcon? Is it new or is it the old
Kenner toy from 1979? (perhaps repainted, as mine is sort
of a tan colour)

JB: good idea, Iíll use that.

Paul: No, this is from 2008. However you can see my original 1979 Falcon in the background of the first picture I posted.

Billís display makes me SO glad my STAR WARS collecting did not go very much beyond the original movie!

I have a lot of the Star Wars stuff Bill has - I love seeing collections to see
new stuff that I donít have - of which Bill has loads!

That BMF (Big Millennium Falcon - get your minds out of the gutter!) is a
thing to behold.



I remember how I had given up in ever having one & then one day, came
home from work to find this massive box in our living room. My wife had
been to the Argos (nationwide shop in the UK) clearance store which is in
Walsall (JBís birth town) & they were selling them for £50.

So she bought me one & didnít give me any heads up before I came home.



Mine is on a guitar stand amongst all my other Star Wars collection. It also
makes a guest appearance in my Razor Crest unboxing video. Because it is
the standard by which all other Star Wars vehicle toys are measured (unless
you have a Sail Barge)

Just received a sheaf of statements from DC that indicate, in part, that I get royalties from some of the Lego toys.

So that makes up a bit for the aggravation!!!

(Incidentally, working on the Colosseum. Never seen so many missing parts!)

Lego. James Lego. Have you seen this yet, JB?  Looks like it just released this month.

Royalties from Lego! Imagine telling young JB, just
getting into the biz, that that would be a thing one day!

Still a long way to catch up to the warming of my cockles brought about by the diecast metal Dark Phoenix figure from CORGI!

No royalties on that one.

Playmobile are adding to their Enterprise with a Klingon
Bird of Prey. £270 so a bit better priced compared to the
Enterprise

Further to the post above, Zavvi, in the UK, has dropped
the Playmobile Enterprise to £270 as well
