Hi Just though I'd post about my baggie collection. There by far my favorite type to collect. I will post the rest of my loose figures and MOC's at a later date.

I'm not much of a photographer, but I tried to get them looking as good as I could. If anyone has any tips on taking better photos of figures that would be appreciated. If anyone has any baggies for sale and for a reasonable price I may be tempted...

I currently have Lando, another Nien Nunb, and a Bossk on the way, will add these to the images when they come in!

please be patient for the images to appear they are rather large =)

Nice baggies man!! They're very nice but a pain to showcase. I give you credit for collecting them, i'd get frustrated.

I remember somebody had them on plastic trays that slanted. Kind of the way people display a book.

Hi Darth,

Thanks, that gave me an idea of maybe using a photo frame stand or like a plate stand, I'll give that a try. I received my Bossk this morning, so I'll add him to my list soon.

Just looking at my images it looks like Ive missed a couple as the numbers don't add up, its probably some duplicate 3P0's nothing major.

Thanks again!!

Thanks, you into the baggies too?

It was great fun to bring them all out of their box and set them all up. I just wish I had some of these collectables on display, but I just have no room to do so!

Great collection! Baggies are one of my favorite aspects of vintage collecting. I wish I had more!

How do you display them all?

I currently don't have them on display as I don't have the room now with a baby on the way. I'm just counting my lucky stars that my partner didn't ask me to sell any of my collection because of that.

When I took them out to photograph it was probably the first time most of them have seen daylight for around a year. It was a real buzz grouping them all and looking at them all layed out. Thats the way there going to stay for at least 1 - 2 more years I'm guessing. A nice display cabinet can be pricy too, so thats another thing I'd need to get the bosses approval for also.

Hey Tim,

That is a fine collection you got there.

Personally I hadn't much interest in baggies when I started to collect vintage two years ago. That was till I started to hunt for exactly those baggies that came with certain playsets and which I need to complete the sets. Since that moment I have seen a whole new world of tape sealed, heat sealed, soft and crispy plastic, types A,B,C,D,E etc. Cool stuff!.

I have changed my mind since, baggie are realy cool items to collect. Very Happy

I want to re photograph all mine as soon as I get a mo, as I did them on a black background under LED lighting which I would turn out sweet (typically did them all like that) but after experimenting found white in natural daylight is much much better IMHO.

So I will post just a few till I get them all re done, better some than none though eh, I collect variatins as well so a deep hole to fill for me as I am collecting all baggie types/styles SW/ESB - a/b/c etc as well as Euro baggies & well known figure variation, so I think I may get done by the time I'm 80ish What a Face


My luke farm boy variations

& one I have wanted to add to my collection since I first started collecting baggies, took a long time to find a nice one though, not that its expensive or even that hard to get, but I love it -

So chuffed about this one celebrate

Thats an awesome Luke Baggy collection and with different bag variations! I don't have him yet.

Also I don't think Ive ever seen a Pabloo baggie or Ree Yees baggy for sale, they must have been hard to find? I think its strange that Ree Yees is only classed as a cat III on the guide I think it maybe should be higher.

That X-Wing Luke is very nice, thats the dream good condition lower price!

Nice work!

What a great collection !!!

Always great to know that there are still many original bagged action figures out there!
I think the baggie collection is very difficult to put together , way more than the regular MOC´s ....

Again Kudos to you!

Nice work!

Thanks Tim, lovely collection you have going yourself, Del (member here) was apparently the guy to know for baggies in the UK, sadly he sold all his off & quit baggie collecting last year, typically I just started up again this year after a 3 year break from the hobby & missed a world of great advice from him, I have spoken to other long time baggie collectors since I started up again & have been told a couple of times that the populations stats on the baggie site you are on about are a little hit & miss & rather outdated as the site was made several years ago.

The ree yees is not just a standard ree yees which are as said very tough to find, still not got a kenner or palitoy one myself, the one pictured is the super rare LL made in mexico one, I managed to pick it up at a toy fair at the NEC some years ago, sadly the last one he had & a bit dog ear'd the baggie is, but still a nice find, just click the thumbnails to expand the images if you want to see the print on the baggies.

Luke FB is not all that tough to find, but is expensive, expect to pay in excess of £80 for a good one, the palitoy brown hair one is possible the rarest baggie I have as I have never seen another one, the Papaloo is also very tough to find as are most of the last 17 only having been available (in the most part bar anakin EV-9da etc) in the woolworths 99p 8 pack bags in the discount bins when the toy line was on its last leggs.

RE "the dream" - its gone in the most part, was much easier 3 years ago b4 I quit for a while, the U grading thing is hiking the prices big time with every tom dick & harry sending baggies to AFA for grading - a sin IMO.

We will have to keep in touch
