Yes those are Ewok comic books. They are attached/glued to the cardboard backer.

Well, I figured I was done with vintage outside of a few loose weapons I need, but I recently came across the yellow version of the Palitoy Droid Factory and couldn't resist.  I haven't had a chance to really check it out yet, but this one has the droid crank and rope.  I'll post pictures when I get a chance if anyone wants to see it.

That would be "Si!" :)

9 weeks of Spanish and I basically could count to 10 and ask for water with lemon.  :-[

I was watching this for months. It went on sale for 25% off. I threw all my other Christmas and birthday present plans out the window and grabbed it.

IT IS A RESEAL, but everything is original Lili Ledy and it looks really nice. Goes straight to the top five list in my collection.

Decided to take a look at some of the other foreign cardback figs. As I already knew most are out of my price range, but stumbled across this and still can't figure out why I got it for so little. It does have some creases, bubble dents, and gun has come loose, but still displays nice.

That's a really nice piece, congrats.  Sadly I'm afraid I've fallen to Rob's logic and will be selling most of my carded figs after Christmas.

After some frosting, a cracked bubble and an "unsealing" bubble I've resigned myself to $50 or less for most carded vintage (which means I hardly buy anything anymore). I figure that if something I paid $50 doesn't stay carded I'll live. That being said I'd rather keep my fingers crossed on all the stuff I currently have and will hold on to. (obviously the Lili Ledy Chewie was an exception, a part of that being it can't become "unsealed" as it already did)
