Never seen that before. Where did it come from? Wonder if any ads for it exist?

Finally something to make admiral ackbar cooler than the "its a trap" thing. cheers How hard are these to find? Would be awesome to have the mailer and the add together. I assume they are pretty rare, but just how rare?

Wow! I feel both amazed and sick in the stomach lol! :I am stupid:

I originally spotted the Toltoys collection Dax purchased on Ebay and was foolish enough to try negotiate a better deal. As mentioned, the sellers pictures were really dodgy but his asking price was still a few thousand dollars.

We pretty much settled on a price and we were going to arrange payment details the following day. But I was still hesitant and wanted to see the figures in person. The next day I was informed that they were sold for above asking price if I remember correctly and he gave me the lucky buyers name Smile

Lesson learnt, sometimes if you see a good deal you just have to grab it! Probably explains why I no longer hesitate and just buy things straight away now!

Congratulations Dax and thanks for sharing, I was always curious as to how they ended up :Drool:

There was a few other next items in the childhood collection. The owner originally wanted to sell it but then got cold feet if I remember correctly.

Looking at the cards they all look to have been opened at one time. I don't know if they are resealed or just laying on top of the cardback now, but you can see the litho tear on each of them.

Cool things! Did you add these to your collection AJ? The 3PO 'jigsaw' is awesome Smile what happened to the all the missing text.. was it offers and the pop? And the bit with the Toltoys coo on the back is from another card?

Really nice additions, I particularly like the star burst sticker on Leia.

The white label on Han does it read "Offer not available in Australia" or is it "now available"? It looks like not but that wouldn't make much sense. Laughing

Leia is a 'double offer' so 4LOM sticker over a survival kit printed offer.  And yes that is a 'NOT' available sticker lol! lol!  I have been told MOCs were stuck together (back to back) sold as a '2 pack' to get rid of old stock and the 4LOM offer had expired & they just used the sticker that was available.
