Its interesting you say sad day. I remember that feeling when I got all of the main variations I wanted. Of course there are still more that I need (Vlix, minor variations), but it was sad knowing you are done.

Congrats though!  ;D

I added the 12" Luke and Leia, pretty clean and complete except for Luke missing his grappling hook.



And here's the 6 I have:

Those are nice. That Leia is expectantly nice since it came with the hair styles book and combs. I very rarely see her hair still tied up like that. I wish my sister didn't get a hold of it and straighten the hair. You should scan in that hair styles book.

Yeah, nice additions!  The boots and accessories are often missing, so that's a nice find.

Finally got a Slave 1, Fett's my favorite figure but never got his ride as a kid. The ship is all there complete with all the stickers, some in a ziplock bag but I will glue them back.The ship also came with  the Han block. Got it at a local vintage store that opened up in down town a few months ago. Payed $38.00 for it. Almost didn't get it, We left the store and went to eat ice cream and when we were getting in the car my wife said " You better go get that thing cause I don't want to hear you talk about it for a week".
He's no good to me open

I know that technically this is the wrong thread, but I bought both of these for MY Star Wars collection so I'm posting here.
Recent universally acknowledged SW rip offs:

1980 Playmobil GE5P. Pretty much R2D2 with arms.

1977 "Ideal" 12" Knight of Darkness. I have him lined up with my 15" vintage Vader and my 12" vintage Lili Ledy Vader. It looks like the "Evolution of Darth Vader".

Nice, I love the Ideal Star Team line...I have all of them MISB except for Kent and the Cosmic Cruiser. The Knight of Darkness was one of my favorite toys growing up.

Nice pick ups!  That unpunched Yoda looks great and CarboHan is tough to come by.

Talked myself into 1/23 (made that up) of a Palitoy Death Star. Picked up the half circle piece that has the Death Squad Commanders looking out the Death Star viewport while they round Yavin. Makes a cool backdrop for loose figs.

I have the scanned artwork for that if you wanted to print out your own Death Star.

You'd need a big printer.  Maybe partner with Jay?  I built mine over the weekend and it's pretty awesome.
