Love the figures guys and good scores, my fav however has to be the Tins, I think they held sweets at one time I could be wrong, but I like these and eventually want to add a set to my collection.

As well as finish off my pez set.

Picked up my newest figure yesterday in the mail.  Got an Endor Han in a Hong Kong baggie.  I'm now working on getting one of each Han in a baggie.  That's the newest part of my Han focus...nice because for the most part, it's a cheaper than getting carded figures.  I'm not going for bagged variations, just one of each.

Sweet stuff, keep up with the focus.  :)

I received this beauty n the mail today, a German YPS Snowtrooper.









Notice the copyright/COO on the back of the leg & that the cape has 2 holes instead of slits.

More on this can been found in the link below.

Looks a bit yellow from the lighting but this guy is pretty white, just needs a bit of cleaning plus I need to find the other gun & I'm all set.  8)

I picked up a sealed Droids ATL Interceptor. Just the A-wing left to be done with the Droids line. I'll try to get some pictures up tomorrow.

EDIT-----



The tape looks legit, so it is still sealed.

So a friend of mine gave me a box of vintage figures over the holiday and in it was a Gray Beard Obi-Wan.  I was pretty sure that I had the White Hair Version, but I'm not really sure.  Here's a picture of what I now have (I know it's a bad picture):

 

The heads are clearly different, the one I'm considering gray (left) has less detail and smoother plastic, it's shinier - the hair is definitely more gray.  The other one is definitely lighter but I'd hesitate to call it white, and it has more detail.  The eyes are very different too.  But the shades of Gray vs. White aren't as distinct as I figured they would be.

So can anyone tell me if this picture represents one of each?  Or do I have two of the same thing?

Thanks in advance.

And here are the rest of the figures he gave me.

 

 

Most of it is in very good condition, and there are a few items I can use for my own collection - the gray beard obi-wan (hopefully), the Scout Trooper and Royal Guard.  I'll also probably keep this Vader and get rid of mine.  This Threepio might be in better shape then mine too.

So anyway, it's not the biggest haul in the world - but it's another pile of figures found in an attic and back into circulation. :)

Nice stuff Rob.  I'm fairly certain you have one Grey and one White haired Obi-Wan there.

Here's shot of my 2 Ben's Rob. White on the left & grey on the right.



One thing I did find taking the pics is the COO on both figs. The White version has "Hong Kong" & the grey version has "Made In Hong Kong.



Pic from RS archive.



Nice score on the figs Rob.  8)

Thanks guys. :)

I'll check the stamps on the Bens tomorrow - but I'm thinking I have the right ones here too.

In the meantime, does anyone happen to have an extra Ackbar Staff?  I have the yellow version, this new one is the grayish/olive version, so I figure I'll complete it and add it to the shelves.  I'd also be in the market for a Biker Scout gun to go with this scout, and an Ugnaught case.

There's a pile of weapons here, but some are missing.

Thanks Dale.

The consensus with the RS members is that I have two slightly different versions of the Gray Hair version and that I should still be on the lookout for a super-white one.
