Strictly Vintage SW please!

I will start...

The General Madine Lili Ledy figure area and nameplate colour is PINK!


However much I tried to believe it was purple (I mean you can stare for hours trying to pretend its purple).... it's PINK! Shocked

Hi my name is Joe, been collecting for over 10 years and "I didn't know that till just now"..

Please feel free to contribute with the weird, wonderful and well known things that you perhaps just found out about (or will find out about!)

It's purple Joe Very Happy

Maybe stretching the timeline but since I've joined the online community I learned:

FX-7s middle claw rotates around it's body

Where Prune Face was in the movie (and he's a good guy LOL)

The Black Bespin Guard Cardback Photo is him escorting Han in Carbonite (not just holding his arm in an odd position)

Awesome thread Joe! Very Happy

Those are some great additions fellas but I have another one that I didn't realize until Joe started collecting Tri's. The photo on the Tri-Logo Han Solo has Han wearing PINK pants!!!! That one is tops for me! I mean the pants are pink! There is no two ways about it!

Something between purple and pink Very Happy





Since I have started collecting a bit more than a year ago, I have learned tons of things.

Just a few things which come up in my mind right now:

  • Death Star Droid is actually Sandcrawler Droid
  • The Palitoy Landspeeder has no trunk
  • There is a rare trilogo box for the MTV-7 mini rig, X-Wing as well
  • Mexico had to produce its own Star Wars toys because of trading restrictions
  • The Lili Ledy Leia Poncho waers a grey grun
  • and so on

I have discovered most of these over the years in other threads and such, but this is great for a refresher. I remember the first time I saw the pink pants. lol

I just learned this one now and of course had to try it out. Thanks John! Smile


Here's one that I learned a few years ago that I thought was interesting. The Zuckuss coin says he's a "battle scarred human"

There are ESB New Zealand MOCs Shocked : "On the back of the card there is no UPC code nor any Kenner POP. Instead there is reference to NZ Toltoys." Now is it possible there is a NZ MOC ESB VC Jawa ?
