Rob: thanks for the lesson on the cardback, neat info!

Very cool!  Is it still sealed or will this be a loose specimen?

Dale, a sweet looking Droid Factory box it looks like it has almost no flaws. Is the playset inside complete?

Yeah the box is in pretty decent shape, just 1 small tear along the edge (bottom left of pic) & minor surface edge wear.

I'm just missing the 2 metal axels but I have another loose set so I can transfer them to this set plus I also have the instructions.  8)

Ahh the droid factory.  I have some great memories of constructing various droids with that.

My best friend had the companion set which was a droid torture chamber.  To think you could play with a torture chamber when we were kids!

A few weeks ago, I picked up the first vinyl carrying case that closed since mine from childhood. To this day, these are still the best cases for carrying figures.

Yesterday I picked up the first version (loose) of the imperial troop transport. Don't know if the electronics work yet. It just occurred to me that the prisoner thingies weren't included, but that's okay. I happened to have an extra set.

I was tempted to purchase more, but had to watch myself. The dealer also had a nice Cantina play-set and a B-Wing in fairly good condition for reasonable prices that I still need yet.

Were all in trouble.   ;)   ;D

Just received this today: ROTJ 77 Back Darth Vader made in Mexico.







A few creases across the front of card, 2 small cracks in the bottom two corners of bubble. From what I understand, this is a Lili Ledy Vader that has the thicker saber tip.

Oh, me likey.  :D

I love the Lili Ledy variation's thicker saber.  Remind me though, does he also have a different head sculpt?

Very nice acquisitions everyone.  Not a big deal, but just to participate - I picked up a loose/mint/complete Hammerhead in a purchase from our friend Jeff here at JD.  Slowly but surely adding figures to complete the loose collection, and Hammerhead is one I've been looking forward to picking up.  He's been my favorite "background" alien since I was a kid :).  Anyways, nothing like the stuff you guys are getting around here, but its still nice to get a "new" vintage piece :).
