Anthony,

Good for you.  So are you complete on the 100?

DBK


I wish. :P I still need Ev9d9 and Luke Stormie. A good friend of mine is going to give me a Luke Stormie whenever he finds it on one of his trips home, and the Ev9d9 I might pick up at Comi-com this year. After that, I think I have to find the proper blasters for a POTF figure or two.

Holy schnikes!  Nice find Jon!  The spare parts on those ships are priceless to a lot of collectors.  I don't suppose the Falcon came with it's training remote?  ;)

In reality, the best deal I ever got was the a near complete set of figures, save for POTF and a few from the previous wave, most of the ships and playsets, save for the vintage At-At, shuttle and anything from ROTJ, all for free. In other words, my childhood collection. ;D

the best deal i would say i have gotten was palitoy rotj farmboy luke, tri vader, tri chewy and tri r2 with scope  all for $37.  they all had smashed bubbles and r2 has a big chunk of the pic torn off, but you can't beat the price for 4 major characters carded.

Update: Okay, I looked it(the falcon) over tonite what it came with was the 2 pieces that hold up the entry hatch, the secret smuggler's hatch piece, a dejarik table, an upper gun turret(both pieces), some piece shaped like t that I don't know what goes to, some kinda cargo box-looks like a scanning crew box-that I dunno where it goes, and it looks like some one took a black "disco" bead and tied it to a string to make a training remote. The cockpit includes the clear plastic insert piece. all the landing gear are there, and the antenna assembly(both pieces).
Aside from the fact that it is an off-white color it seems to be in good shape, stickers and all.

*anyone know if it's missing anything?*

I think the cargo box you refer to is actually the "power supply" to the Tri-pod Laser Cannon used by the snowtroopers.

The piece that is shaped like a "t" might go on top of the Rebel Transport, but without further description,i might be off on that.

A lot with 16 vintage figs including a ROTJ carded fett, POTF han carbonite, imperial dignitary, POTF jawa, ESB chewbacca and a bunch of others all for about $30 per figure

Also got a carded ESB fett for $80 about 7-8 years ago.

Bought a few local peoples collections and got things like some ESB carded figs, blue snaggletooth, almost all of the last 17

No, it's grey/not black, 1/3 the size of the snowtroopers tripod cannon

I do have the rebel transports' T-shaped gun/Ion cannon? So I know it's not that, no-this piece is flat and resembles 2 footpedals and is grey, not black like the rebel transport's piece. However, it doesn't seem to fit to the gun turret chair....Huh...?

Surprisingly the 'disco ball' I thought someone added actually looks like the one in DSJ's reference link so it's looks like I'm only short the support arm for luke's traing ball and it would be a complete set.

The gray box might be from the Dagobah playset…

I'll keep thinking about the T piece  ???

Got a photo?

Sounds like you have a piece of the Scout Walker, the breastplate. This piece would go under the main body of the walker. I tried to find a decent pic, I could only find the one below on short notice. The piece I'm referring to is the darker grey piece.

And you guys are really good at that game

...Jedijaybird- that IS the box from the dagobah set
...CorranHorn- it IS the breast plate from the ATST(which is kind of sad since the lady ahead of me that bought that ATST and I bet my piece went to it since all this vintage stuff was taken to the thrift store for sale by the same person :(
