Great find Dale.  It must be a great feeling getting that after searching for so long.

Thanks guys, I was pretty stoked when I bin'd it. The seller also had a Famiy Hut MISB but I didn't have the funds for it so that one will come in time & I already have the Fire Cart. I just love the preschool stuff.  8)

when are we going to see a picture of all the vintage stuff.

Going to be awhile yet, I just bought my parents house that I have been living in for a couple of years & still so much stuff in the place. I have been going through my stuff that I have collected over the past 40 yrs & weeding it out, it'a mostly in my old bedroom which will be the collection display room when all said & done. Jesse stayed at my place for the toy show & has seen the room packed with boxes.  ;D

That is a neat find.  I hadn't heard of vintage preschool stuff before.

Just the other day I got a Boushh, Boba Fett, and IG88, with two old joes, for 1.04 on ebay. Shipped it was like $6, SO basically a little over a buck a figure. I was happy! ;D

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)


I just added another Polish unused cardback to go with the one above. From my understanding in the link above, this was used for the figures. I think these 2 cardbacks would look nice framed together.  8)

Absolutely!  They would look fantastic on the wall together.

Nothing fantastic like many of you are now searching for, but I'm still (slowly) working on completing a loose/complete vintage collectiong (and replacing my well worn childhood figures).  Anyways, in the past month or so, I've picked up the following via ebay:

Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot)
R2-D2
Princess Leia (Hoth)
2-1B

For the most part, I think I'll try to go by each movie line to focus in on what I'm looking for a bit.  I bit on the Hoth Leia and 2-1B because the prices were low and I was already buying the Luke X-Wing figure from the same seller.  Otherwise, I'm trying to finish the original Star Wars (ANH) figures first, then moving onto the ESB ones I'm still missing.  Anyways, like I said, not outstanding purchases by any means, but I just thought I'd share.

Thanks, I'm pretty happy with them.  I used to try to get a couple of figures every other month or so, but with the increase in modern releases per year recently, I've had to put this on the backburner for awhile.  I'm trying to get back into a bit, so I'm just starting up again.  I've been watching Star Wars/ANH figures primarily, and it really seems like the Leia and R2 from that line can get a little pricier sometimes.  Also forgot to mention that I got a SW Luke Skywalker as well, but I'll eventually have to replace that one as its missing the tip from the saber.

I've been slowly doing the same thing.  I've been buying weapons for my childhood figures, adding figures I didn't have as a kid, and replacing a couple of the really beat up ones.  I've got a Hoth Rebel Soldier and Luke Hoth in the mail as we speak, after which I'll just have the POTF figures to complete my loose collection. Of course, they're much more expensive, so a little harder to commit the money to.  All in due time I guess.

Funny, I'm working on a complete carded collection now :-X  Well, sort of. 


But good stuff Brian, excellent progress.  The only request I have is that in the vintage section you not refer to Star Wars as A New Hope, it has no place here.   ;)

I've made some recent acquisitions as well, but I'm waiting for them to be in hand before unveiling them.

I agree fully, that's why I just put it in parentheses after the proper title :P.

I won a couple auctions on eBay tonight that may have opened a large can of worms - 2 carded figures.  I've always wanted a carded set, and going with a Canadian theme will make them a little more unique.  I also have an Endor Leia from when I was a kid and bought a B-Wing Fighter earlier this year, so that makes 4 down, 73 to go.   ;)

I'm looking forward to the unveiling.  Are you still working on the Trilogos?
