I have a few carded figures. The cards themselves are mostly in really good shape excepting that every single one of them has had the POP artfully removed (or not so much with the Vader 12 Back):

Here are the loose ones I have so far. Most are minty, or close enough for me at the moment, R5-D4, Snaggle, Walrusman, the Jawa and Death Squad Commander are ones I've had since I was a kid that are place holders:

They've been hiding away under the bed for a good while. When I opened the case last night I was surprised to see some of them (Luke, Stormtrooper) had yellowed since I saw them last.

I still have all of my old Star Wars toys from when I was a kid too. The rest of my collection begins in 1995.

First of all GREAT collection man! Very Happy

Looks fantastic!

Secondly, take your figures out of the baggies. That's been known to do more damage than good for storing vintage figures. Since the plastic is breaking down, it needs to "breath" a bit. And the baggies trap all of those toxins in there. I'm betting that's why your Luke Stormie turned yellow.

Anyway, it's great to see your collection. Your 12 and 20 backs are AWESOME! Can't wait to see your collection grow with time!

Thanks for sharing!

Now there is some sound advice--thank you Chris! Thanks Tiger Smile

Thanks Joe, Love your avatar :cool laugh:

Some day I'd love to have a 12-Back carded R2-D2 and C-3PO. Those were the first two figures I bought waaaaaay back when. I vividly remember to this day being at Kmart and walking into the toy dept and seeing that "WOW--they've got STAR WARS TOYS!!!!". They must have just put them out that day because they were still fully stocked from what I recall. I just happened to have enough allowance money to get two figures and after a lot of wrestling with which ones to get settled on the droids and my little brother got Darth Vader (I must have talked him into it). We were on cloud nine for weeks and it only got better as more toys came out.

I also have these guys. Again, not mint but certainly acceptable (for me at least):

My Vintage "collection" such as it is... Th_BobaLarge_01My Vintage "collection" such as it is... Th_BobaLarge_02

I'd really like to find an orange replacement insert card for Boba Fett. Either a nice replica or, preferably, an original.

Cheers Guys,

Dave

Nice childhood collection you got there!

I especially like those vintage suitcases loaded with figures.

You are planning to get a complete collection of loose figures?

Great collection Dave. No matter how small or how big a collection is, it all looks great.
