Post up your pictures of the odd-side of SW collecting... C3PO soapdishes and tape dispensers... Ewok rollerskates...
waddaya mean you don't have Luke shampoo!



I'll start with the very freaky Star wars Book of Masks (French version). Just check out those scary pics of Leia and Yoda with no eyes!

Since I already posted it in the other section, I'll do it here also. My grail piece that I wanted for awhile.

R2-D2 cookie jar complete with inner bowl.

That Bib mask just looks funky. I can just here him saying "Hi, I'm Mr. Brains." lol!

I haven't seen one like that, but there is a similar one close to it called Super Space Commander made by Horikawa from Japan in the 60's. But I'll keep looking for you.

Heres some new ones for me.



Yhea, thats Wicket in an ESB box, but the box is marked as Wicket. The costume is in a ROTJ bag. I'm guessing overstock box. And the other is a UK Acamas C-3PO costume.

Issues 12-14 Ewoks comics


I got a few other things in, but they are in the magazine and cells sections.

Hi guys

I got this Parker Brothers Star Wars ROTJ game in an old toy shop. It is still factory warped in plastic.
I have never seen a game like this before. But i like the art work on it.




Nice art work on the side of the box to


The back of the box


I olso got this Airfix Speeder bike still in the factory warp aswell. But it is tered open on one side and there is this sticker put on it that says: Made in USA . I don't know if it is becouse of that that it is half open and have been taped back up.
Or it is just busted.
But the US compay General Mills :-) bougth the UK Arifix company. And Airfix then made the SW MPC kits
So there might have been some thing there . And the Airfix box on the page is olso open the same place in the plastic.

Read more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airfix

You can read more abourt the bike and SW model kits here on this great page:
http://www.kitpedia.com/spaceships_and_vehicles/speeder_bike.htm

And take a look at the fat poster that are in some of the boxes . There is olso some great paper work to start hunting for :-)
http://www.kitpedia.com/promo/poster-1982-rotj.htm



Nice pictures on the side :


Made in USA stikker olso on french
Very Happy

Some nice oddball stuff guys Very Happy

Chris - cool Wicket in the ESB box and great C3PO too.

AJ - I like those Pop a Point pencils on the ROTJ card.

Soren - the artwork is absolutely brilliant on the Parker game! Never seen that before. Good info on the Airfix too _
here's mine: X-Wing Fighter made in France...

Argentina Ewoks party favors. These things are small as hell. 1 3/4 x 2 3/4. I thought they were bigger from the picture.

TY Chris, the tote box is super mint - in fact I should've added the paperwork bits too like the name tag on the inside lid and the index sheet that came with it - although I suspect the index sheet was probably added later? Do you have the same index sheet in yours?

Index sheet:

Yay variant record boxes lol

Yep Chris that was a crucial album to own back in the day! That's my original vinyl copy - my study is littered with vinyl at the mo, having a right blast here with it all. Was lucky to see Slayer in Bham UK on the '88 South Heaven tour - loads great bands then, still got all my ticket stubs.

ahh those were great daze! cheers
