PostSubject: Hello TIG!   Tue Mar 21, 2017 11:08 am

Hi guys. Thanks for this forum.

I started collecting back in the early 90's and only recently discovered an old box of figures. Needing the cash I reluctantly sold them, wished I hadn't and now I'm collecting and trading again! I do most of my buying and selling on ebay.

TIG has been a great source of information and really helped me in identification of variants so thanks very much for the help!

Speaking of which, I have a tricky one at the minute. A Leia Boushh with the Kenner/Ledy Hong Kong COO and the button missing on front strap. Not sure if she's a Ledy or Kenner. The hat is a Hong Kong painted version with an E inside and the Rifle is a V4b as far as I can tell. A right old mix! Any ideas? I'll get some pics up as soon as I get a chance.

Thanks again!

Hey,

Not sure if you've checked this out or not, but here's a discussion on Leia Boushh:

Our Figure of the Week section shows pretty much every helpful link there is about each specific figure.

I'm new here. I started collecting in 1977 (or even before the movie came out). I bought every original action figure they had. I owned the millenium falcon, Landspeeder, Tie Fighter, X-Wing fighter and tons of other stuff. I sold it all when I was a teenager because I just no longer cared. In hindsight that was a mistake I would regret forever. Until this week. I've bought back the initial 12 figures along with my original Darth Vader case. I'll be buying the rest of the stuff soon also.


The only thing I kept was a cassette that was given to a friend of mine when he toured the facilities and met George Lucas. I still have the original cassette given to him by Mr. Lucas. He gave him 2 and he gave me one (I couldn't part with that one). I think we were 8 or 9 years old at the time.

Thanks. I have no way of proving the provenance but I'm too old to care and I'm not selling it anyway. It's the 1977 superscope cassette. He had a photo of the gift with Mr. Lucas but it was lost in a flood.

Hi all! My name is Chris Leddy. I'm from Dover, NH USA. Married, father of 2 beautiful little girls. Longtime Star Wars collector. Vintage collecting contributor to The Brick City Blockade Podcast Network. I mainly collect vintage, but dabble in modern as well. My main areas of focus are The Rebel Commando and ROTJ Unpunched Tsukuda figures. (I also focus collect Ahsoka Tano as well) Putting together a loose run for the second time. Sold off all my loose figures about 5 years ago. Proving tougher to accomplish than planned for. Always on the hunt for vintage Star Wars items. Love discussing with fellow collectors and always trying to learn about the various aspects of the hobby. I'm on twitter and instagram @vintageviewport and Facebook Christopher James Leddy
Welcome to any new connections in the community and always looking for Rebel Commando MOC variations

PostSubject: Hello! My name is Trevor   Sat Jul 15, 2017 6:42 pm

Really glad to be part of the imperial gunnery. I have been collecting since they first came out, well playing with them when they first came out now i collect lol . I had my parents mail away for the first 4 before they were in stores and have been hooked ever since , and no I don't have them anymore lol. I have a fair size collection and now I am trying to identify each loose figure as to where and when it was made and I wish I wouldn't have started it can be a real pain in the neck some days. But T.I.G. has helped a lot in identifying but I can seem to find much info on Meccano or palitoy in comparison photos. Anyway glad to be part of the group and if I can help out just let me know

Hello all,

Great to see that some old faces are still around and also great to see so many more.

I have re-started collecting after a good few years of being out of the hobby, so thought I should rekindle my old favourite forum.

The wife and I got our wish and we have a happy little mini figure of own. With the little one, I don't have the crazy budgets I used to have. But no matter, its going to be slowly, slowly. My first term plan is to put together a loose set of mint figures, which after that, I don't know.

After being out of the hobby for a while, it's crazy to see how much the prices have increased. It's going to be challenge to get back the things I sold, so not expecting to. Thankfully, I managed to save about 95% of my Luke Jedi focus, so I have see how I can work on that too.

Cheers, Craig Smile

Welcome back Craig. Yeah prices are insane right now, if I had to purchase half of what I have at today's prices there is no way I could acquire the collection I have now.

Glad to hear the Luke Jedi focus stayed mostly in tact. I know I have directed a few at the limelight here several times for Luke Jedi info.

Hi trappedtexan, thank you very much. Do you have your collection on limelight display here on TIG? I will go and check it out. I'm glad my research limelight is still helping others.
