I did a similar thing with an incomplete robon hood village due to the fact it was so cheap.
I had a Sherwood playset a few months ago that was mostly complete, once in hand though I came to discover I didn't really like the foliage as much as I thought I would, so I sold it. I did profit on it, so all's well.

Good to know. I thought about picking one up for the foliage a few years back, but the prices got insane. I figured I could just replicate something similar or better.

The foliage doesn't really click into place, it just sort sits, there's pegs in the bottom of most of it and holes in the tops of the trees, making it wobbly. You could (and I actually did on a custom one about 15 years ago) just get some fake foliage from a craft store and drill a hole in the top to attach it and it would look better. Course it's a permanent modification that way. :-/

My Stan Solo- Han Solo Stormtrooper figure came today !!! I’m a Kenner vintage guy , but I love these new “unreleased” Kenner style figures. The Hasbro Tarkin and Luke Snowspeeder figures rock! I have been eyeing this Han Stormtrooper figure for awhile and finally decided to go for it. I couldn’t be happier with how awesome it is to have Luke’s partner in crime with him.

Do you have a full droid factory set? That is one I remember playing with for hours as a kid.
Not yet, I do want to get the full set, for now just R2, couldn't pass this one up. Yeah I remember playing with this set a lot as a kid, so much fun!

@coachvader where did you get Han from? I have the mail away one but never liked the way he was posed.

Nice collection and great display @coachvader !

I've been debating on getting the Stormtrooper Han for some time now. Seeing how he looks with his friends makes it hard to say no.
@VaderJay i debated it for a long time as well, no that’s here in my display , I am so glad I bought it. I advise you to do so as well.
This is one of the earliest factory customs made and I just can’t understand NOT getting one. He is awesome and fits in perfectly.
@Lobotscomb i completely agree, if you didn’t know the line , you would never know that this figure wasn’t apart of the normal line , it’s fit is so seamless

@mcautographs the mail away one you mentioned is from the 1995 POTF2 line when they were making everyone bulky. This figure I got is from a company called Stan Solo that makes Kenner style figures of never produced droids and figures. They also make reproductions of Kenner items. The have a store on Etsy called Stan Solo. They also sell on eBay.

@Lobotscomb Is that paper background or plastic 3d printed type of background?

The display looks great! I love how natural Tarkin fits in to the scene.

Paper mounted on foam core. I basically downloaded stuff from diorama workshop cut them out and mounted them the way I liked them. I could have built something more intricate or accurate but it wouldn’t fit in the allotted space.

Picked up a R5, C-3PO with removable limbs, and 8D8 at a comic book shop here in Boston. I’ll try to pick up an R5 in better condition but at the price I wouldn’t pass it up.

LOL Me too, but the market is either way overpriced, or devoid of anything worthwhile. The cold weather kind of puts my various haunts on hiatus too.

All I really want now is more 4-ups. They're overpriced AND the market is devoid of them! Fa fa fa!

I have ever only saw one once, back in the early 90's and it was $100 ish, thought it was expensive then...
at the same said place, I could have bought Luke stormtrooper MOC for $85 and thought it was too expensive. Bought Warok instead for $35
