holy crap, great pickups Brent and John, seeing carded vintage being sold at single digit prices is really an odd sight.

Very nice! Do tell us how you aquired them.

Also, probably could post this in the Latest aquisitions thread. ;)

Indeed I do.  That's the exact same figure I recently picked up on trilogo as well.  Mine's unpunched though :P

Great pickup Henrik, I may be wrong, but is the Toptoys Yoda one of those that came with the green snake?

Very nice buys, Carl  :) I assume the Leia is German? Mine's a German GM too. A Pal-45B would be too much to hope for  ;D
Palitoy...it ain't yellow :)

While this is not a vintage figure, it is a vintage piece that I am just loving at the moment:



It's not in mint conditon - it's got some pinholes and a lot of edge wear - a lot. But IMO that just adds something to this piece, seeing as it was more than likely hanging in a movie theater some 27 years ago, and survived all this time. Plus I got it for a steal (under $10).

Was able to score a couple more loose figures this past weekend at a place called the Toy Vault in New England (I want to say North Attleboro, MA, perhaps Delaton can correct me, he was there with me).

I got an A-Wing Pilot complete w/ coin and the no-teeth variant Lando complete all for about $45. It fits a couple nice holes in my collection and brings me just 6 figures closer to a complete set from SW thru POTF.
