The flex cuffs are actually from a website that specializes in 12" figures and their equipment. 

My wife rolled her eyes when I started working on this and told me to pick a hobby.  I'm ready to start another one.

I posted this in the Other Toy Lines forum, but would like to get a bit more exposure over here.

Being in the USAF Security Forces, I thought I'd make a bit of a tribute to the guys still on the far side of the world still fighting the good fight.  No politics intended here. 

Questions and comments are welcome.

I thought about getting into collecting GI Joe, but my wife says I need to pick one hobby and stay with it.  So I'm staying with Star Wars.  I may try to pick up a Flint or Dusty figure at some point.

First trade with Dale and everything went off without a hitch. Great communication and super friendly.

Over the past year or so I've been selling off bits and pieces of my modern collection for the same purpose.  I was trying to get each basic figure MOC, but I got tired of doing that, so I sold off the boring Saga collection first.  That's the only full set I've sold, but I've also debated dumping my POTJ and POTF figures as well.  Now, I collect mainly vintage and don't get much of anything modern except for clones.

Go for the vintage.  It's a bit more expensive, but like you pointed out, there is no time crunch.  Also, part of the fun is getting a good deal on something.  If you loose out or decide not to pick up a figure, there is always another one that can be picked up later.

Vintage Kenner / Re: AFA - Good or Bad?
« on: November 21, 2005, 04:20 PM »
I'm not a fan of AFA.  I agree with Morgbug that grading loose figures his stupid.  But I don't need my figures graded.  I'm not buying anything that high end anyway.

I agree with the be patient approach.  I've been patient on many an auction and decided to pass when I didn't think the deal would work.  For the stuff I'm after, there is always something else coming along and therefore, I don't need the AFA verification.  I'm not picky about my MOC Han collection, provided they are presentable.  I don't need AFA to tell me that, I can look at a picture and decide from there.

I don't remember everything that I voted for but I did vote for the following:

Star Wars
GI Joe
Big Wheel

Most of those shaped my formative years, with the exception of the PS.  I also listed Trivial Pursuit because my family plays it all the time now.

I'm still hoping to find a trilogo Bespin Han.  Other than that, I've got pretty much every basic carded figure, excluding variations and the EU.

Obviously it's been a bit longer than "tonight" posting pics.  But I've finally taken them off the camera and into the comp.  Here are four pics of my OIF USAF Security Forces soldier.

I can't seem to get the image tags working for whatever reason.

Edit:  I think I fixed an image tag for you (if this is what you meant).  I just copied/pasted the link for your first picture and highlighted the link in my edit, then I clicked the image tag in our forum toolbar:

And there ya have it. :)

I wanted to ask about this.  I didn't feel that I got a really clear response over at RS when I asked, so I'll ask here.  (BTW, referring to a conversation in Watto's, I only visit RS for the vintage and trade sections.)

Anyway, in a link here on page 3 of this thread, I've put up a picture of my most recent Han purchase.  I was a bit nervous about the purchase because the figure had a stormie gun (later determined by me to be a freak occurence).  Once it arrived, I was terrified that I had a faked figure.  So I put it under the light, searching the bubble seal, and then ran a search on TRG.  I came to find out it was a variation I hadn't been aware of, an ROTJ 48A Hoth Han.  John Hamm helped me out as best he could, but I'm still not sure about the figure/cardback variation and rarity.

The ROTJ 48 was obviously the first run on that cardback.  My question, how hard to come by are the figures on that cardback?  Also, is that particular variation HTF?

While we're kind of on the topic, and for your viewing/search free pleasure, I bump this thread.

Another update.  There may still be more as I uncover stuff.
