Just picked up a AFA Y-75-85-85 R2-D2 with Pop up Lightsaber. Just a few more to complete my set.
He's no good to me open

I traded my VCJ back to get my carded Boba back. My friend used it to acquire a AFAed Droids Boba and they gave him a $1,500.00 credit for the Jawa, that's a $500.00 gain in just a few weeks of owning it.
tomorrow my four Fett's will be together once more.

Picked up a Kenner Ewok Glider unused with sealed baggy, a Palitoy sticker and it was made in Mexico. Usually don't like to get opened items but this was a gift so it's extra awesome.

I'm no expert so I wouldn't bet my life on it's authenticity, but I do trust the seller.

Cardback, bubble, skirt all repros. Blaster is vintage Kenner.

Figure is authentic vintage Uzay. Someone colored/painted the shoulders and boots which is wearing off now. But I'm thrilled to add this to my collection finally.

What makes the UZAY Snowtrooper different from the Kenner (aside from the packaging, of course)?

The most obvious difference is the "cod piece" is black and then the "groin" is white as opposed to the opposite on the Kenner version.

And when I said "thrilled to add THIS", I really just meant any bootleg figure produced by SB Products in the 80s.

Ahh.  Got it.  I took a quick peek on another site and didn't notice this difference.

Looks like they used a Kenner Snowtrooper on the Cardback.

Found a twin pod cloud car at a thrift store  :), missing one canopy and no stickers  :(
But nice condition for its age.
