Hey guys,

Sorry I took my pics down. Had to do some reorganizing on my Photobucket. I'll try to put more detailed pics up of the items I frequently get asked about when I get some free time in the near future.

When you showed off that POTF proof just recently on RS I thought - wow

As such and because you have the PBP+ Clippers side by side to the proofs, your middle shelf (left and right) is my favourite part of your collection.

Great focus Kev, keep it up!

One last thing - Are you upset he didn't make it onto a tri? Its a potential 4-5 new variations to track down for your MOC run Sad

Cheated!

Ya it is a little disappointing that it seemingly doesn't have a trilogoed card. I have talked to fellow Canadian collectors who swear they saw 4-LOM on the shelves at retail here so there maybe some unfound variants out there. As it stands right now the closest we've got is the 1 transition stickered card in my collection. New things seem to be found everyday though so I keep my eyes open! The POTF proof was a long time coming...it took me like a year before I decided to try and work a deal out!

Here are some up to date photos:

New items are the ROTJ Palitoy/Italian stickered import, Zuckuss attacktix prototype, Zuckuss Kotobukiya and Degostini (gifts from Bear78!) and a Promo Mini Bust.

I took a few quick shots of my Euro's and added in my newest addition: the Italian stickered import.

WOW Kev what a stellar Figure focus!

4-LOM is as cool as the come he was a great fig with awesome accessories imo

Its working taking some time to go through all the 4-LOM MOC's pictured to see just how many gems are there!

The PBP Red Armour 4 LOM MOC is one serious killer piece! Love the POTF Proof as well! (of course the others aren't to shabby either Smile )

Superb run bro thanks for the share!

Jay

That's an impressive character focus Kevin. It's great to see another Italian that ended up in a focus collection.

Wow Kevin! It's been forever since I've seen pics of your collection! Thanks for posting them. It's a treat to see again!

I have to agree with Joe, the second shelf is killer man! That PBP is an absolute beauty!

Thank you for sharing.

Great focus collection Kevin!

4-LOM is one of my favourite figures anyhow, so I understand your choice for this character,

A PBP MOC version. :Drool: Unbelievable, I am still trying to find a loose one.

Curious: All the PBP 4-LOMs came with the red armour?

Cheers,

Marco

Hi Marco,

Thanks for the kind words!

Yes, every PBP 4-LOM I have seen has come with the red armour (which has a different feel to the regular Kenner version, it is less rigid). The other thing to look for is the nose is quite black and the COO had been smoothed off of his right leg.

One sold on eBay a little while ago for quite a bit. The armour was good but it was a regular Kenner figure; so look out for that.

My loose PBP I have was actually a MOC that broke through the bubble in transit Sad

:clap: Great collection Kevin. 4-LOM is a cool focus character! The ESB QC sticker is something special! I'll add your focus to the index at the top of the section later. Thanks for sharing.

The Offerless 4-LOM is actually a great collector story.
It went up for sale on eBay a couple of years ago along with a MOC vnyl cape jawa, POTF Yak and numerous other MOCs from an unknown low feedback seller. I was high bidder and willing to spend quite a bit of cash. Of course all the auctions were pulled, someone stymied me.

A couple weeks later I get an international text message from Bear78 (A 4LOMer before me) saying to get to a computer, the 4-LOM is back on eBay with a low buy it now. Turns out Craig Ginter bought the lot and put this up at a fraction of what I was going to pay. He has a bad reputation with some but I gotta say he did everything right with me. He got a deal on the 4LOM and paid it forward and was excitied it was coming to me when I showed him my focus pictures. He said he got offers afterward to pay double and triple what I paid but said he didn't even think about replying - he wanted it in my collection.

Craig (wherever you are) and Andy, Thanks!!!

I always enjoy seeing great focus collections such as yours, love the diversity of cardbacks, also is great to see vintage and modern side by side in the same focus.
Cool run.

very cool ... I must admit when I was a kid I never cared for this guy ... but now as an adult collector ... he's for sure one of the more detailed figures from the line and really cool. and also having a wide screen ESB so I can see him more in the movie helps to add to the respect I have now

but for sure that is one awesome run of figures you have and one kick butt collection focus. congrats

Hey guys, sorry about the broken links I did some restructuring to my Photobucket as it was getting quite cluttered. I'll fix that up and get them back up on HERE soon enough. In the meantime here is my Plo Koon pre-production run I've recently started:

A big shout out to Anthony (GorkoRacing), I'm not sure if he posts on here or not. Also, thanks to James G for the deal on the POTJ hardcopy body. If anyone has his limbs and/or head gimme a dingle!

Nice collection of modern pieces, Kev.

So without me searching Wookiepedia...are the two meant to be the same species? What a Face Or is Plo Koon not a Gand?

Never really took much interest in the prequels. I thought they had some great new characters...It's just pity they weren't developed enough on screen Crying or Very sad

Thanks Josh! As far ask know they are of no relation. Its kind of a coincidence that they both wear breathing masks as I never looked at it that way before.

I started collecting Plo Koon prototypes as my oldest son (4) now understands my toys are different from his. He has some Star Wars Lego and loves his Plo Koon set and wanted to have his own "special" ones. He loves opening and checking these out when the packages come in - I know that feeling!

He has started arranging and displaying all his super hero squad toys too...uh oh, my obsessive nature mixed with my wif'es over the top organizational skills....
