Today started off like any other day. I woke up, goofed off around the house, watched some TV.
Then, dad came home from a flea market and called me in to see something. At first I was annoyed, as I thought it would be something I had no interest in.
What he did was present this to me:(Click Here for Picture)
He had bought me a lot of vintage Star Wars figures. All of the original 12 (including an extra Stormtrooper and Jawa) along with 2 other non-Star Wars figures and a generic Star Wars case (which I will bring up in another thread).
I had stayed out of vintage for a long time due to high costs. However, here in one fell swoop, I have the original 12. He presented it to me as a (very) early Christmas present, as he wanted to be sure I wouldn't buy any of these by Christmas time.
Anyway, as for the figures themselves, they are in great shape for the most part. The Vader's cape is torn unfortunately, and one of the Jawa's, Han Solo, Princess Leia, the Death Squad Commander, and Chewbacca are missing their weapons.
I didn't think it was bad considering only 5 of 14 figures were missing weapons.
Anyway, it looks like I am now into the world of Vintage Star Wars collecting, as I can right now picture my shelf being completely filled with the entire vintage collection.
