I have already posted about how I have been buying loose lots on ebay to complete a set, well, after buying and splitting a mere 8 lots with a buddy of mine, I was able to get 76 of 77 original figures with weapons. The ONLY single I bought was a Hoth Leia, because I accidentally gave that one up in a split thinking I had one already. The awesome news is that in these lots I picked up a decent Blue snaggletooth, and a VC Jawa. The cape is torn, but for the 3 bucks it cost me in the lot, I am more than happy with him for now. Its not a super great collection, just a loose set, but I am starting to get into this variant hunting, so who knows what it will turn in to! I have just broke the $600 mark, so I think I am doing OK, especially since I am halfway through the PotF (still waiting on a few to come in) and sitting on about 200 extra figures right now (40-50 complete)!

Tim, welcome to TIG welcome
That loose set is looking great. I'd be happy with that torn VCJ too - he looks kinda battle damaged anyway. Great SW costumes! And the Ibanez is soooo cool Cool Do you play? Is that a Ms Pac-Man arcade I spotted by the cabinet? Great limelight man! Congrats.

Hi Tim

The collection is coming along nicely and I would be pretty stoked with that VCJ so early on in the focus. Torn or not it still a VJC and like Paul, A bit of battle damage would be fine to me too is if meant I could have one.

I like all the other cool stuff you have too like the Gaming Machine - must really cool dropping in a few coins and getting to play a retro arcade in your own house next to your coll figures.

Nice stuff!

Thanks guys!

The Ms. Pac-Man has been mine since I was 10 years old (back in old 1987!). My uncle picked it up somewhere and gave it to me. I cant tell you how many hours I spent playing that thing.

The Iceman was bought with the intention of learning to play it. Unfortunately its now signed and I am afraid to take it off the wall, haha. I am currently looking into another one though.

The VC Jawa is awesome. I have no idea what its actual value is since its torn, but I treat it as a $200 figure. Its got the original weapon with no bump also. I am considering afa grading it just so its authenticated for when the day comes that I upgrade him. That wont be for awhile though, I am hunting a DT Luke first!
