I finally have the first piece in my Canadian Vader collection!  A 77-back Darth Vader in absolutely amazing condition thanks to some lucky timing with Jim McCallum.    8)

Hey everyone!

I'm turning over a new leaf in terms of completism with the modern line-  no more repacks/repaints for me... just honest to Force new figures that haven't been made or new sculpts that are vast improvements over existing versions (like VTSC Biker Scout).   In terms of Vintage- I have every figure loose except for POTF R2-D2 Pop-Up lightsaber and I think my Vintage focus will stay with the loose philosophy.   I'm in the process of picking up vehicles and playsets that I don't yet have but once I get those and the R2, my vintage "hunting" will largely be over.

Happy Collecting!

The newest piece in my vintage Vader collection isn't a carded figure, but simply a cardback.  My plan has been to stick with Canadian cards, but this cardback was WAY to cool to pass on - a Takara one.  8)

I've had a Vader focus for 30 yrs,and I don't nearly have all the Vader Stuff,I do have some really cool items though.I collect Qui-gon as well,but there's not much to collect of him as Vader
The ablity to speak does not make you intelligent - now get out of here!

Sithtoys.com is a great site!  I'm pretty sure the owner's name is Bill McBride.

"Vader - The Ultimate Guide" only skims the surface of Vader items produced, but it's still a great read.

Nice Jesse please let me know any tips you have about a Vader focus as I'm starting to do this abit myself.

The smart thing to do would be to focus on certain sub-lines, not try not to buy everything like I do.  ;)

That's sounds like good advice but easier said then done he just looks cool in everything he is made in.

Make sure to come see me at C4. I'm cleaning out some stuff as I've been rearranging my bootleg goals since about December. I'll have a handful of cool Vader bootlegs to offer up. ;)
