Thanks, Dale! I couldn't resist! I was up late and decided I'd check eBay to see what vintage figures were ending soon... I about crapped myself when I saw that... YESSSS!  :P

I just won this Loose & Complete Endor Luke, have to send payment out tomorrow and then I will finally have a complete figure for the first time in 21 years!

Sweet pickup, Horn! I've got my eye on a carded ROTJ Tusken Raider... I want that figure soooooo bad... Yeah, I thought $5/figure for those guys was a helluva deal... couldn't stop thinking how lucky I was after it ended and I won!

The Luke Poncho is a good deal, he has gone for a bit more loose. Comes with a green saber eh!

yeah the saber has me a bit confused too. could be nothing more than the seller not realizing this figure shouldn't come with the saber. but on the flip side, the pic isn't good enough to tell if the blaster is a repro or not, so i could wind up with a couple of repro accessories. still worth the risk just to get the poncho and belt.

I'm not sure what you're seeing Dale, looking at the bigger picture I can see thru the opening in the hand to the poncho. But no worries even if the figure is damaged, I have another figure I can swap the accessories with, then it's onto making a ROTJ Throne Room Duel Luke  ;D

It almost looks like he's holding a broken branch, dark on the outside and lighter brown at the tip. Guess it's just the way the colors of the poncho is coming through the hand.

Today while I was wasting my time downtown at the stores ::), mini-slothus(my son Tyler) went to the thrift store and nabbed a vintage jackpot for me :o! He nabbed me a vintage Rancor, also a Jabba's playset, a tauntaun, and a wampa. Got a Max rebo too but couldn't remember if that was part of Jabbas playset or not. Atta Boy! 8)

Well I finally got the Endor Luke on Saturday, took 3 weeks to get it, sheesh! I am glad to say that the figure and the poncho are just fine, however the blaster and saber were indeed repros. I knew going in that I was taking the risk, but it was worth it for the price to score the hard to find (on their own) poncho and belt. Alas, the hunt for an original blaster will continue.

In fact, the hunt took me to a nearby vintage toy shop in Chicago and while I didn't find the Endor Luke blaster, I did score an A-Wing Pilot blaster, Rancor Keeper Staff, and 2 left flaps for a Speeder Bike for a grand total of 5 bucks. I was amazed to get the blaster for so little a price as it now completes my A-Wing Pilot. Oh and if anyone has a right speeder bike flap to trade for a left one, do let me know.  ;D

Not hard to find or anything, but I finally decided to get the camo collar Hanjust so I could add that variation.  If things go well, I may add another Han this weekend.

I won this auction a few days ago and it arrived today.  All of the figures are minimum C-8.5 and all of the accessories are original, no repros...!  Not bad for $60!!!

I'm sorry to say the the Han Blaster is not original. Blue blasters did not ship until the ESB line and none shipped with the ANH Han. :P
