I have that set. I love that thing! I've been wanting the Bespin one for a long time. I think I even have a spot for it. I think it would be cool if Hasbro brought this concept back not just the figures like with the unleashed line.

So, in an oddly related story I just picked up a big pile of Vintage from someone earlier this week (Bunch of open, but boxed ships and 80ish figures.  In the pile were two boxed micro sets - the Bespin Freeze Chamber and Bespin Control Room.  I haven't even opened them up to check them out yet.  Let me know if you're interested and I'll snag a few pictures in case it's what you're after.  I'll hold off on the OB Taun Taun in case you want it, and then I can save you a few bucks on shipping.

Don't worry about that Justin. The Bespin microworld thing is pretty low on my list. But thank you anyway.

I honestly have no interest in the stuff, so if you want it I will sell it cheap.  I was buying for the 4" vintage goodies and these were just extra in a big.

On the Acquisition side, I picked up an electronic stormtrooper blaster and really minty electronic Han's Blaster Pistol at a sale yesterday ($20 for both).  I'm not much into the role play weapons, but I love that Han blaster.  Would like to snag the Biker Scout pistol one of these days too...

I haven't heard from Phrub - are you interested Steve?  I will get some pictures up this weekend.

Really nice grabs here gang, nice to see vintage collections getting bigger. So much stuff to get & it never ends.

I have not picked up much in awhile, just upgraded my Canadian Regal stuffed Jawa. Complete with bandolier & vinyl pouch. Hands still squeaks.  8)



I will be selling off the other Regal Jawa "hand squeaks/no bandolier vinyl pouch" soon. If you are interested, Pm me.  :)

I've never even seen those before.  Is there a story behind them?  Nice score -Tony it looks cool.

Also I don't think I shared this amazing piece my brother gave me for Christmas - a French Palitoy AT-ST MIB. Amazing piece!

Have finally been getting around to picking up some of the missing accessories I've lost over the years. I had catalogued a list months ago and am now actively in the process of checking them off.

In the past week or so I've picked up the Snowtrooper skirt, Gammorean Guard axe, Chief Chirpa's staff, and just last night the Emperor's Royal Guard Force Pike.

There are still a number left to go (Jawa gun, Biker Scout gun, a variety of imperial and rebel basters, etc) on my list but it's nice to be making progress.  :)
