They look to be in nice condition.  I like the Luke with snap cape.

A very nice 45c Palitoy Zuckuss.  Apparently no Pal ESB-logos have been found so I had to "settle" for this one  :)


Palitoy...it ain't yellow :)

I got Prune Face and Rancor Keeper, as well as R2 and FX7... Only need about a half dozen before my pre-POTF collection is finished. Probably won't bother with the POTF figures.

Finally picked up the Han Solo in carbonite I've been needing for ages to complete my initial Han run.

Check out the thread in this section if you want to see the full run as of now.

First...huge thanks to Dale for helping me nab this beauty...vinyl cape jawa.  Thanks again Dale, left you some positive feedback bud.  As you can see, he has found a happy home  :).



Second...snap cape Luke with blue saber and molded face.

Cool stuff Matt; nice assist Dale (not that I've ever seen that before). 

How can you tell Luke's face (blue saber; snap cape) is molded?  Is that the standard for the release, or something different?  I ask because I pulled mine minty fresh off a thrashed card.

I guess this one fits in here too, or could go into the poster section.  I picked up this little beauty earlier this week:



I got some other pictures from the seller to check it out and based on that it looks legit.  It's still not in hand, so I'm still a little nervous on it.  The bidder that finished second though is a vintage poster seller and I've seen some of his stuff before that is legit, so it adds a bit of credence as well.  I like outbidding and winning when knowledgeable sellers are involved, helps convince me of authenticity like when I won my VCJ and beat out Andre from Legends.  That was legit, hope this was too. 

This completes the poster run I wanted and gives me two vintage posters from each movie:

Star Wars:
Style A One Sheet
Re-release (two weeks only version)

Empire:
Advance
1981 re-release (common as dirt)

Jedi:
Style A One Sheet
Style B One Sheet

The others can be seen in this thread

DBK, I like the stand you use. I could use something like that. What is it ?

Nice to see some posts in this vintage thread!

Brent, nice poster thanks for sharing.  Regarding your question, the Luke Jedi  was produced with either:

1. Head moulded in flesh-toned plastic with painted hair
2. Head moulded in light brown (the hair colour) with the face painted on.

I believe that #1 is a lot rarer than #2.  So I purchased #1 to have the harder to find of the two versions to pair up with the snap cape and blue saber.

Sure wish I would have jumped on these two years ago because both eluded me for a long time...

Darknight2k4,

Plain old cd cases.  Stacked with the center cd holder removed.  Cheap but efficient.
