I'm relatively new to actively collecting vintage carded figures, so I've been trying to learn as much as I can and take my time. Being that I'm Canadian, naturally they are my focus. Most of the pieces I've picked up are on ROTJ cards because of their affordability.

I'm also a Vader addict, collecting everything I can get my hands on. So I've got a couple Canadian Vader items as well.

Thanks for the comments guys. It's been fun adding to my collection, but it's tough to pace myself. Smile

Hi Jesse,

That is a fine collection you got there, congratulations!!

The Canadian Transition Rebel Soldier is a great piece. The "Guerre des Etoiles" logo on the DV TIE Fighter box rocks, to me it is one of the best logos from the SW vintage era.

A couple weekends ago I journeyed out to a toy show on Vancouver Island and managed to find a number of great pieces.


CDN Luke X-Wing 77-back, unpunched -- I was ecstatic to find this, I couldn't believe the great condition.

My Canadian Focus Pbucket


CDN Lumat 77-back, Made in Mexico -- One of 2 figures on Canadian cards that can be found with the "Made in Mexico" label.

My Canadian Focus Pbucket


CDN Walrusman 20-back, RESEALED -- it was only $20, I figure even the cardback is worth more than that, and it displays beautifully.

CDN Star Wars action figure case -- The only case released in Canada that actually has the bilingual text, not bad for $10.

Ceramic Darth Vader bank -- Not Canadian, but it fits nicely into my Vader focus. I've got a couple similar pieces which are lamps, but I had to have this 3rd one as a bank.

Some great new pieces to your focus. I think Lumat & Paploo can only be found offerless on Canadian cards & I paid more for a 20 back cardback than you did for that reseal ( debut/rookie card as well ) :clap:

Thanks for all the great comments again guys.

I need to get some acrylic cases to display them properly, but it's hard to budget around 25 of them. Shocked

Great collection there, Jesse. I love especially the Luke X Wing in such great condition!
The Rebel Soldier transition and the Vader are also great. As is that boxed tie fighter! Cool to know that the figure case was produced with bi-lingual graphics too.
Some really good and varied Canadian items here, congrats cheers

Wow I love the focus!!!

I lived in Canada myself for a short while and picked up a few MOCs Sealed Rebo Band and a few other bits whilst I was there.

As well as the dual logo and dual language paperwork there are some very cool and unique pieces, so I am really going to enjoy watching this collection develope!

Really good start! Are you planning on picking up the canadain playsets too?

If you ever upgrade and sell on the Luke Jedi, please give me a heads up! I would love to get a canadian Luke Jedi for my focus.

Perhaps someday, but the figures alone are feeling like such a large project that I'll stick with them for quite awhile before I branch out. However, I have a soft spot for the mini-rigs, so I would love to find them in CDN boxes someday.

Great looking start to a difficult run to piece together! Very cool. There's a ton of very knowledgeable Canadian collectors on RS that might be able to help you out as well.

As far as mini rigs go, I know there's an Enfor Forest Ranger in Canadian packaging. It doesn't show up too often though. If I see one I'll be sure to send you a heads up.

Good luck with the run, I can't wait to see what else you add! Thanks for sharing!!!!
