Hey all. So...as some of you know, I actively search out Star Wars "in the wild". I have a couple interesting ad strategies that I employ in an effort to seek out and acquire older collections. Every so often, they work. I recently landed this buy from a fella about an hour away from me. It was a tough go...and a long story...but we eventually came to agreeable terms and I bought the stuff. There's lots here...more than the photos show. Enjoy!

Great find and thank you for sharing! :Drool:

I love recovering Star Wars items "in the wild." What were some of the prized items you uncovered?!?

Oh...this one is nowhere near as good as the really great find I had about 5 or so years ago. That one was loads more stuff and nearly all MISB. That buy also included a fair pile of 60's model kits, vintage magazines, and a pallet of early 80's sports wax boxes. This buy, while certainly a nice pile of stuff, is not in the same condition or the same quantity.

Great find, you are the true Bounty Hunter bow

There's got to be an Imperial Gunner in there to travel the world.

Or maybe that boxed Millenium Falcon could start the journey? I'll pm you my address, first stop the land down under. lol!

I've had the opportunity to pick up some nice collections over the years, but nothing like that. What a score! bow
Congratulations to you.
Judging by some of the other responses I'm gussing your inbox is pretty full by now lol!

Hey there. I'll add pics as I take them...I've just not been able to spend that much time with the lot. As I organize and sort through everything, I'll be responding to all the PMs and such inquiring about certain items.
