Got a fitty cent Taun-Taun (open belly) at a yard sale. No reigns, but hey at this age, I'm happy the saddle is there.

Only other vintage find this year was a Rebel Commando amidst some 80's JOE. He's an honorary Joe, I guess.

Here's the taun taun in a deleted scene from Rogue One...deleted for being out of focus.  :P

Hah I like that tower.  Can't quite place what it is but it works.

It is a small parts bin on top. Those plastic bins you can find at hardware and home improvement stores. I got that free at a yard sale with others that my father took to use as parts bins (how unimaginative!)

As for the legs...I've no idea.  I found a bunch of them at my local township's recycle dumpster and grabbed them because they looked like good props. Someday I'll probably get in trouble for taking stuff out of there. 

I didn't permanently connect the parts or anything, but it wouldn't be hard, just some screws or even glue.

I mean...uh...its a SPACE TOWER (tm) that I'll be selling soon for for the low price of $69.99 each.

Darth Vader carrying case...missing the upper things that hold figures and the lables...BUT...it had the original cardboard insert with picture of the figures. And it had gotten damp a bit  (tragically, from a brief early morning shower as the people had set up their sale) but seems to have dried out okay.

Inside was chewie's bowcaster. (and non vintage stuff).

Estate sale finds. ROTJ TIE Fighter missing one wing label $18. AST-5 with a C-3PO (rem limbs) inside for $8.

Some guy beat me to the Y-wing with box and loose B-Wing.  :(

Passed up a Snowspeeder for $28 and 1SP-6 for $12.  They also had a POTF2 x-wing in opened box marked $45.
