Possibly the most boring post one will make in here, but picked up a Ewok Village box to go with my Ewok Village yesterday.

Those vintage boxes are sweet.  You need to stop buying vintage now - I'm going to be listing a bunch of vintage for sale by the end of the month!

I did the same thing recently Nick...  I was equally excited.  Got a Death Star too, but no Death Star set yet...  Got them last year sometime.

Got one of my grail Jawa items a few months ago, a ROTJ two pack with Jawa and Rebel with gun. I don't care about the rebel but at least he has his gun.
He's no good to me open

Off ebay paid $6 for a loose vintage Jawa with repo blaster, Obi Wan's cut to size vinyl cape and a letter from AFA saying this isn't an authentic vinyl caped Jawa.

Got a Jawa 20 back card back. I know it's not the right card, but the front does the trick so I now have a home made vinyl caped Jawa.

Nice scores Jason!  The A-wing especially is a great score.  Is that front one vintage or the modern version?  Looks brand new!

Thanks Jman! The A-Wing in front is my new vintage fighter, it's a beaut.

Darby - Forever Young is still on Belmont. The owner has been trying to sell it for years, she's in financial trouble I think, but still overcharges significantly. I had to work the Tig Fromm to a reasonable price.

Nick - getting boxes is exciting, it helps us complete our sets. I've bought a lot of boxes over the years, so kudos on your pickup

Nice!  Local finds or Ebaying?  You're snagging some great stuff!

BIN a Vintage Wampa w/ not so pretty box off ebay yesterday. Even had the wife's blessing since we just named our new albino baby rat "The Wampa".
