    I don't know if anyone remembers me, but I used to be a regular here before I moved to America a couple of years back. Anyway, my mother recently passed away so I'm back here in England to sort out the family home so we can sell it. Needless to say, there are a lot of Star Wars and other sci-fi collectibles (toys, books, magazines, posters - you name it) that I've acquired over the years that I won't be able to take with me. Most of it isn't very valuable, but it seems a shame to just throw it away. So if anyone is interested, and is willing to come to my home in Surrey to pick stuff up, it's yours for free. I'm trying to sort through all the stuff right now so I can make a list of what I'm giving away, but in the meantime if you're interested, PM me or post here.

    I'll send you a list as soon as I've sorted through it. Should only take a couple of days, hopefully. And I promise not to have a Rancor pit waiting for you [face_mischief]

    I'm Sorry for your loss DarthHomer, and it's very generous of you to give your items away.

    I'd like to see the list too, although even I'm trying to get rid of a large chunk of my collection so I shouldn't really but I may be tempted.

    I would also be interested as I live in Surrey too, although depending on what the better half says.
    It's a shame that you can't take everything with you but you're gonna have plenty of other things to take with you that's personal to you, so prioritising what you can and can't take must be a pretty hard thing to do.

    Hi there Darth Homer

    That is really bad news, and so nice of you to think of us here at fanforce.
    i would be interested in seeing a list of what you have there.
    Most of my collection is back in australia so my bedroom here is pretty bare

    Just want to say a huge thanks for the stuff mate ^_^ and hope your doing ok.

    For the rest of you, me and Koren went down and took the lot. We've sorted out what we want out of it, Matt we've got the thing you wanted so next time we see you we'll give it to you. A lot of the stuff isnt starwars related so dont know what to do with it tbh. A few friends have said they wanted certain things but most of it will stay in my garage untill we can find a good home for it.

    Ell, Koren beat you to the cd rom.
