I had a dream last night that I was on the Hub zoom call and I was bullied when I was pished into buying the Carbon Freezing chamber playset. "It has stairs!" I kept shouting over and over. "It has stairs!"
To be fair, it doesn't so much *have* stairs as *is* stairs. It's a very odd playset because it's so spindly. I don't think I'd try and persuade anyone to buy that. At least the Tantive set is a nice chunky corridor with a wall.
I had a Thundertank, and it was great. I do regret getting rid of it at a car boot sale. Especially after getting the 2010s Thundertank when Home Bargains had them cheap, and being very disappointed at how little it does.
The Retro Mando wave has arrived. They look SUPERB in-hand. Easily the nicest SW retro figures yet. They just look like good action figures rather than just a 'retro' line. IG-11 is the stand out figure.
I reckon these will fly off the shelves if they're a tenner a pop in Asdaland/Sainsburgeries.

Saw the Retralorian Mandalorian figures in Toryglen Asda last night (well, some of them - no Mando or Grogu left, of course). All marked as being a tenner each, although I don't know what they rang up as since I didn't buy any.
I got my small but perfectly formed modern Star Wars figure collection out the other evening;
Jabba, his palace denizens, and Skiff Guard army squared off against General Veers, Captain Needa, and their Imperial garrison, with our heroes caught in the middle, as Darth Vader looked on assessing Young Skywalker from a distance. Very pleasing.
I seem to have lost General Veers' helmet though...
I was the one who let you know, I was your sorry ever after, '84, '85. Give me new toys and I'll decide, but I'm really only after, '84, '85.
