Just got a Die cast ESB Twin pod cloud car from a small comic con on it's second year here in San Diego. The weird thing is that it has a Deutsche General Mills sticker on it, and I cant find anything on the net about it. Any help out there will be great  :)

Cool find.  General Mills owned the Kenner banner from 1967 to 1985.  They released products in several countries including Germany (Aka Deutschland).  Your cloud car was probably a German release that has made its way to the states over the years.

Not really a vintage acquisition, but picked up an all white, no articulation reproduction Vlix figure today from local collectible store.

It's always good to have a reproduction of Vlix considering the high price of the real thing. It fills the spot until you hit the lottery.

Finally after many years of trying and looking I have added a Blue Snaggletooth w/ gun to my collection. Missing a little paint but overall quite nice.

Sort of (in my mind anyway). I don't have all the variants of figures (big heads, double telescoping sabers, short mouths, etc.).

I even went after Rancor, Dewback, Jabba, Rebo, Tauntaun (only one of the versions though), Wampa, Death Star for Dianoga, Probot playset to have all living/droid figs. But my OCD fights itself on whether I need to have a Slave I for the Han in carbonite. I can't bring myself to pay for a complete Droid factory to have three legs R2 and the bunch of fake droids. I'm probably forgetting something too.

And I really need a new pop up saber R2. It was the last figure I needed of the 96 that came carded and I got impatient and bought one that had been mugged and got it's butt kicked really bad.
