Not bad for a moc emperor...the price was definitely right!  Nice score.

A nice little addition to my bootlegs, a Polish unused cardback. As seen is this link on A Guide to Polish Bootleg Star Wars Figures, this cardback was used for containing weapons from my understanding. Man, this cardback is in awesome condition.  8)

Just won this beauty on ebay:



It's also my first vintage MOC figure, and probably my only one for a very long time. It's a little more expensive that the going rate on these, but I wanted one without any special offer stickers on it.

that is a good 1st carded figure.   brian's toys had the vader/luke jedi combo for sale many years ago.  i thought i would just get those 2 and be happy.  i can't believe how wrong i was and how easily i got sucked in.

I now see how addictive these are. I just paid for that Luke, and now I'm browsing for a Chewbacca on the 2nd Jedi card.  ::)   :)

Pretty cool that you were able to find a couple Canadian cards.  Sometimes I dream of a carded collection in all it's bilingual glory.

Nice stuff Dale. What's my latest vintage acquisition? It would probably be a couple of Leia and jawa guns. I'm trying to give all of my vintage figures their accessories back. Does anyone have a good source for cheap vintage accessories?

Nice stuff Dale! I always like seeing those clearance price stickers on them so I can appreciate the irony of paying big bucks for something that could hardly be given away twenty years ago.  :)
