    Anyone got £25,000 to spare?

    So long as you are a Star Wards fan that is: Star Wars Vintage 102 AFA UKG graded Figures Them All on eBay (end time 29-Nov-10 20:51:12 GMT)

    I'm sure that in my childhood I had many of these figures. I wonder if my parents still have them

    If I was really rich I would get that lot and then make the buyer watch [ as he says he will personally deliver them ] as my kids open them up and play with them.
    I still have a millenium falcon [ well my boys have it ] - original box and all - they still play with that - shame the noises don't work on it and the stickers are peeling off.

    I guess that truly is the definition of sad if you're prepared to spend 25k on plastic figures. If I had that sort of money spare I'd spend it on hookers, coke and booze.

    Only joking. About two of the vices above. I'll leave you to decide which two.
