On my doorstep today and something I've wanted for a very long time for my Yoda focus.

32-back ESB Yoda - Unpunched



bubble has a crease and the card has a vein in it but otherwise flawless.  8)

My other unpunched vintage:

Nice find Jayson!  Yoda is a great addition, and that display table is a very neat way to show him and the others off.

Nice finds.  Jayson, I really like how you display those vintage carded figures.  Very cool.

Thanks. I'd like to refinish the coffee table at some point with a black finish and new hardware, but for now it works and looks pretty good.

Made my first "newly listed" BIN purchase on e-bay and scored some authentic Snowtrooper capes to re-cape some of the capeless troopers I've acquired over the years.

A couple of new loose figures in the mail today.

Lili Ledy Short Mouth Biker Scout.



Squidhead w/Orange Cape.



I have been told that the Squidhead is 100 % authentic & guaranteed. I'll be showing it to the guys at the toy show at months end for some thoughts. I may send this to the AFA which I really hate but...  ;)

My little collection which I have just started to put together (I would say they range from C7.5 to C9).

Without any further ado here they are.

Thanks DSJ, I have no clue about these Vintage Figures other than I played with them when I was a kid, I loved them and I thought I would start a collection of them again, its always going to be loose figures I collect, I cant afford the MOC Figures I would love to be able to but alas I know my budget, and the Wifes Temper (She's a Red Head so I dont want to upset her, lol).

To be honest I wouldnt be able to grade them, I wouldnt know where to start, they look between C7.5 and C9, but dont ask me which is which, if anyone can help me, I would appreciate it, all of them have tight limbs (apart from the princess leia, however I have another 14 figures waiting in England for me, and one of those is a C9 Princess Leia Organa).

Nice.  Those are all clean and crisp looking figures.  When I was working on my loose set of figs, the hardest one I found to find that was nice and neat was the Death Star Droid, followed by C-3PO.  For whatever reason, the limbs on those figures got loose quickly and were easy to chip.

Great looking figures Desify!

The R2 and R5 look great...the decals on mine are a bit worn due to years of play!  :D

Thank you for the compliments gentlemen I have just won a C9 Turtleneck Bespin Princess Leia this afternoon, unfortunately the Cloak is wrecked but she does have her pistol.
