Wow, you've been on a great run, it's fantastic to have all these pics to look through! Of all the great items you got, I'd have to say the Cloud City Playset is the coolest. I'm not sure I've seen one assembled before, it's certainly a fantastic display piece.
Oh, and congrats on the Dagobah Playset having the foam intact!
Thanks guys, it's been a lot of fun picking up the vintage this past summer and sharing it when I have the time.
McMetal - congrats on the nabbing your last boxed item, how's the accomplishment feeling?
Though we're halfway through Fall, there were two more summertime scores...
In Chicagoland, there's a great vintage store called Quake Collectibles. I've been going there for years, though as I move farther away from the city it gets more and more difficult. Anyways, the baggies were a CHEAP pickup - $2.50 a piece! But the biggest deal out of all of this was the moulded face Jedi Luke for only $7!
At the end of the summer, I went out to New England for a few days on vacation. In visiting my buddy Ash, we stopped at a pair of vintage shops known as Toy Vault. There I picked up a snap cape Jedi Luke for the express purpose of giving the accessories to my moulded face Luke I got earlier. Also the boxed MTV-7 was a nice snag as it was only $10!
The Summer of Vintage has ended and allowed me to practically double my collection. But the score is still rising, this past weekend was the Kane County Toy Show and I had some amazing finds there. Soon I'll have pics to share on those as well...
