Star Wars Toys Wanted

My lad is mad on Star Wars and wants to start collecting the figures and all that, so far he only has R2D2

Does anyone have a collection or in particular an AT-AT or Millenium Falcon...

He's 6 in a few weeks so thought I would ask you lot before doing the eBay thing.

They're a more expensive hobby than RIBs. Not the wisest collection to start!

I thought I could just buy a collection secondhand but may be I'll look for the AT-AT first and see what happens....

Our friends say to their kids you earn the wifi password which they change daily. Great idea

For controlling and helping to protect kids (along with OpenDNS) on computers, K9 free web protection works well. I've just seen that K9 is available on iOS too although I'm not convinced by its use in that environment.

Like above post, access at certain times of the day can be controlled and only unlocked when all homework etc is done.

Back to OP. Star Wars bits, especially Lego Minifigures is really something you want to avoid! Worse present we ever bought was Lego Star Wars book. It started a very expensive journey through vintage models and hard to find mini figures.

Maybe!

What's the going rate on an original -
  • At-At in the box
  • Scout Walker in the box
  • X Wing fighter
  • Snow Speeder
  • Rebel Transporter in the box
