As a lot of you know, and laugh about, I have a de-carding phobia. I just can't bring myself to decard even the most common 40th but..



Old Lancer Bruce has been doing some bashes and the best option for Lancer spares is carded 40ths.



So..needs must...



It does get easier but if anyone has any loose Lancer spares for sale it'd save me some trauma! lol!

If you don't remove it from the packaging, how else are you going to play with it... scratch

Just stare at it and imagine? Rolling Eyes

I can't believe you are in the process of dismantling your boxed sets, Steve wake up, let's hope you wake up in time before this vandalism gets out of control.. Someone should to leave a bowl of cold water at the foot of your loft ladder Wink

Clive sure is a Toy Jailer Laughing, carded sets SHOULD BE OPENED to dress your action man in or to use as part of a kitbash.

I've just bought a couple of 40th Lancer cards to open as it's the easiest way to get all the bits I need.

That's good news Steve,

I'm glad you are still part of a unique gathering who like to keep most of their sets boxed, to remind us of how good it all looked back in the day on toy shop shelves Wink
