Got all 8 Glasslite figures
« on: April 24, 2005, 04:17 AM »
Hello fellow collectors.

Long time since I last posted here.

Two weeks ago I won 8 auctions on the vintage Glasslite figures.

The auctions ended aprox. 2 am sunday cet. I contacted the seller and transfered the money sunday, the figures was send on monday, and next monday they arived at my place.

Brazil til Denmark in one week is pretty cool.

I have also bought some new cabinets for my Star Wars stuff. Yesterday I finished my new display. Now i just need to take some pictures and put em up here.

Until then here is a link to the auction with photos of the actual figures I won.

I sold a MINT loose set about three years ago (as I started my "Euro Variants Quest") for $1,000 US Dollars.

Thus I actually think they were quite a good buy Henrik!  ;)

Maybe i missed it, but isnt there 9 figures? I think obi-wan is missing in action.

There is no Ob-iWan figure from Glasslite, just these 8 figures and ofcause the Droids figures.

Kenobi

I knew i had seen Ben on the packaging. You can see him on the card back. Not sure if he was ever produces, that is a whole other story, but i knew i had seen him somewhere.

great score Henrik, I don't follow the foriegn vintage enough to know if individually they come up often for sale, but I got to imagine a whole set at the same time is rare.

i also noticed on the back of the card evenflow linked to that they show Bespin Luke there too. has there ever been word on how close that figure and ben kenobi got to being made?

cheers!
