Well you either love 'em or hate 'em!!!

I never knew the figures existed as a kid but I remember watching the cartoons on TV when I got home after school, so for me that's a good enough reason to collect them.

PS If anyone out there wishes to donate a Vlix i'll gladly accept the gift in order to complete the guide Wink

Awesome work Stefan, well written, well presented, well done! cheers

Nice to see the Droids line get a mention, like you said, love 'em or hate 'em, to me they are still a part of the vintage line as a whole. I didn't realize the Glasslite versions where different either, I bet that silver stormie blaster for Kea Moll is a pig to find!

Great work dude, look forward to seeing the rest :clap:

COO advise and help?....
 
C-3PO: Glasslite Droids / Glasslite POTF / Kenner Droids / Kenner

 
C-3PO: Glasslite Droids / Glasslite POTF


Here we have 4 "Raised Bar" COO's, from left to right (top photo)

Glasslite Droids (???? Shorter Bar)
Glasslite POTF (COO#4)
Kenner Droids (COO#4)
Kenner is 1982 (COO#1)

Is this another case of differences between a pair of moulds?, Is COO#4 on longer unique to Glasslite?

Thanks Scott. Eventually I hope to add carded figures, coins, vehicles etc...

As for the R2's, yeap there sweet, but that glasslite one is a nightmare to get hold of. Sad

Question Time:

Q1: Should I include the Poon Vlix with my original Vlix, when I make that entry?

Q2: Does anyone know if the Droids HK fett came with a special gun, we know the Droids Taiwan fett came with the V5 (with/without) dot.

1. Comparison pics are always useful
2. A HK Droids Fett is something that has only recently been discussed to my knowledge, so getting an answer may take a while longer.
