I have a small 8D8 focus collection and have been collecting on and off for the last 2 years, well, its evolved slightly (actually drastically) in the last few months with some of these items pictured leaving and some new ones arriving, a new display picture is much needed but for now this was my focus earlier in the year.

8D8 Focus group shot Pbucket

The mailers are all complete now with all correct bagged figures and the Kenner US + CDN Carded run is also complete.

Stay tuned for updates, but not just yet !

Yes I still have him Michael, thanks again !

I tried to upgrade it very early this year to a clear bubble but I lost out to another collector (I gave up really Wink )

I have mostly the expensive items left to find , I have been lucky to find some awesome pre production items thanks to a few friends and connected contacts!

The one that still eludes me right now is the Lili Ledy MOC (but I was very close recently)

Thanks for the comment !

LOL trust me, even I hadn't realised exactly what there was out there for this little guy, I still have 3 different trilogo variations left to find!

I guess the big production piece is of course the Ledy, then its all expensive .. lol

Luckily, there is a tonne of pre production items out there to hunt down/wait for!

Yes the variations are low for loose figures, so I am happy lol!

(I got lucky, all the hip circles etc I have all combinations in baggies, so it seemed silly to also buy them loose!)

Luckily, the trilogo variations are quite easy to identify and are country specific, by the end of it I should have a trilogo from at least 5 DIFFERENT countries!

Anyone thinking of doing a ROTJ Figure Focus but is worried about what is out there or how much can be achieved just needs to check out Joes and Chris' awesome collections.

Its been a real treat to follow your hunt / quest over the last year and see you get some awesome items Joe!

Why doesnt AFA acknowledge the 8D8 Leg/hip variants. Some have circles on both hips, some with a circle only on one leg???????? I have some mint loose ones with all three combos but dont want to send them in to get graded!!!!

8D8 Focus group shot Vint8d10

Yet they acknowledge the Green Limbs chewbacca, which pretty much has been denied by collectors as a true variant and only fading/discoloration in the limbs due to different type of plastic.

Even if it is a rather boring variation (even for me!) I agree with you, to label Chewbacca with green limbs yet
not mention the circles on 8D8 is a little strange.

Granted its really not that interesting but its definitely a real variation much more so than many others that AFA
acknowledge (tan limbs klaatu..)

Either way joe, great collection!

I hope my Boba Fett collection gets that good someday!!!

I am quite fond of the white skinny dude to be honest, not individual MOC's mind. I love seeing all the cards in one place Cool

Just been messing about with my "wardrobe" from heaven lol

Didn't have the chance to get much out but thought I would see how the carded looked in there, was exciting to see my figures
on display for all of 10 minutes Laughing

I still need 2 more acrylic cases, had to share some for these shots and instead of acrylic for my pre production I went the cheap route and picked up some toploaders lol but that big update won't be here till the summer as I am painfully paying a few
items off Sad (but still Very Happy )

Progress report over & toys now back in the boxes Sad
