It was a troubled time, I had just sold all my StarWars figures to the local model shop for at most a tenth of their original price, things had moved on.
Down but not out I decided to join them. Prices had skyrocketed in a very short space of time, there was no way I could rebuild my empire, what with hundereds of figures and tens of vehicles.
Some four years earlier I remember being bought my first StarWars figure, Han Solo in his classic black and white garb. I had scoffed at my brothers purchase of figure that not only looked unlike anything from the StarWars universe but that I had never heard of, FX7.
I knew where to look but even so, in the standard non widescreen format you see only a few failing arms for a very short amount of time.
Suspicisly, FX7 bars more than a passing resemblance to the Imperial probe droid seen earlier in this movie.
In total I have amassed thirteen FX7s and I was surprised to find that there seem to have been an number of different models produced.
The unopened FX7 has unequaled worth in this collection, which includes two store sealed figures and a MicroMachines version.
It has been some two and a half years since I purchased the last of these great icons, but I will go on.
(but only if I find them cheap <g>)
All donations happly recieved.
I have a new FX7 making the total 14 !!
For some reason Hasbro (since Episode One The Phantom Menace) have re-released SOME new figures based on characters from the past movies, including my very own FX7 (but why not one of the hundereds of other characters ??).
The saga continues ......
The gangs all here (except the new one)
