McMetal - sounds like a great score on an A-Wing, congrats!
I've been picking up a lot of vintage over the past couple months, I've practically doubled my collection since mid-May...
Two day haul from the Motor City Comic-Con in May. The Bespin Control Room is a sealed piece, while the Max Rebo, Dengar, and Stormtrooper are upgrades. Bespin Leia allowed me to complete the 3 major variants of the figure and I finally have a die-cast TIE Fighter for the first time since I was 5!
A nice pair of items from an RS member (Vintage_City) - the PDT-8 rig and the Dewback saddle are upgrades (never had the reins).
My buddy Ash gave a me a great hook-up with a number of vintage boxes to complete several pieces. The Rancor and CAP-2 were the only ones to come with toys, though I already have them.
Ash also helped me complete my collection of movie figures with the final piece to the puzzle - Blue Snaggletooth! The silver on the belt buckle and boots is obviously not the best, but the blue plastic on the torso and limbs is some of the best I've ever seen in hand.
Not a spectacular pick-up here, always wanted to nab the POTF2 set and got this for dirt cheap at a garage sale listed on Craigslist. More importantly it was a gateway to the next score...
The guy I bought the POTF2 set was having a garage sale at his friend's house (I think he owed his buddy $$) and mentioned he had some boxed vintage he was considering selling and wanted to know if I'd come back the next day to check it out. I did go back the next day and after some haggling I picked these 6 ESB pieces. The Slave 1 practically has no stickers on it - an unused sheet came with it. The Bespin Leia came along for the ride in the Cloud Car.
And finally, the biggest haul of them all! My Holy Grail!! I got a great deal on this Imperial Shuttle from another RS member (dspair) - I've wanted the Shuttle since I was 6 years old and have been so ecstatic over finally having it in my collection. This has become the centerpiece of my collection and I just can't stop staring at.
This is just the first part of my "Summer of Vintage", I've got more coming in from eBay later this week. Woo hoo!!
