OMG...that is an awesome score Dale!   Congrats.  Do you have or will you persue a Obi and Vader to complete the set?

It's gorgeous!  It's almost too good to be true!  Any chance of you sending that to me just so I can say I held it in my very own hands?

This is the first one. I am not sure if I am going to get Ben or Darth. I sure would like to complete the set but its the $$$$ that make it happen. I will tell you, its alot of money for a saber the size & thickness of a sewing pin.  
But it was worth it.  ;)

It pains me to think, at one point in the mid 80s, I probably had one of these. At a slightly later point in the mid 80s, it was probably sold for a nickle at a garage sale. Please excuse me whilst I sob myself to sleep.

Truly a fantastic find! Congratulations!

For some reason I think i had one of these puppies too, I am almost positive I had a vinyl caped Jawa as well.  I know I lost Luke in a freak lawn mowing accident.  The Jawa may have been let go in a garage sale :o

Definately remember having many a vinyl cape Jawas. My brother and I had a small army, and I specifically remember getting some with cloth capes and swapping them with vinyl capes... lol There is probably a little stack of ten vinyl capes for Jawas tucked away in a box somewhere. Ah who am I kidding, they were probably sold in the great garage sales of the 80s as well.

Buy a pair of parachute pants and get five Star Wars figures for free.

I think we all had some form of rare figure as a child & they met there fate as we never knew at the time.   The horror, the horror.
