Hello

here is a part of my modest collection of vintage variant  alien I have been collecting for 2 years now, doing lot's of research, most of the figures shown here were quite hard to found.

this is fully dedicaced to those who helped me and shared their knowledge: in france Jerome allias JEJESTAR with who everything started, stephane faucourt who has always been very helpfull, and Fansolo. Also guys from Imperial Gunnary: Wolff, Kenneth, Marco, Alex, Patrick, Stephan, Mirco, Lee, Javi from spain, Sergio (spain too), Chris, Flycusal, Olisud, Luis, Jay...those from who I bought figs, trade or sale, guys from TIG, mintinbox, SWUK, rebelscum, spanishSW (Jota), many collectors from spain too  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:

None of the categories here after are finished, it is just to share my collection as it is today (and I am not trying to compite with anyone else Smile )...I always loved variant limelight like Mirco and wolff did. I hope some more guys will do it too in the future

if someone has question, wants more pictures or details, please send me a message

I will start with my favorite, figs from spain:

poch fig:
variant collection Img_8011
luke brown hair is a "mix figure"
RS are quite identical variant beside small details, as the two Snowy at the end of the line, bespin soldier and leia bespin

now some figures from spain I am not 100% sure they are poch for now despite some of you confirmed it.
variant collection Img_8012

PBP and trilogo variants:
variant collection Img_8013
pbp and trilogo han
chewy G coo and circle under feat
C3PO with a screw
...

ledy variant (just a few)
variant collection Img_8014
C3PO, yoda and ben were bought in spain, but I think they are identical to ledys so I have put them here too

Meccano
variant collection Img_8015
different coo or small details for each variant.
Yoda and leia bespin (sometime called geisha leia) are no coo not exclusive to meccano I think

that's it for today

thanks for reading this

cheers

I always love to see pics of loose variant collections!  What a Face

It's a great 'foreign' variant collection Nicolas and "modest" doesn't do your collection justice!  :clap:

Thanks for sharing! cheers

It is great to see the huge variety of vintage variants. Quite a few of those you have I'm still on the hunt for. What ones are high on your want list? Do you have any favourites?

@kenneth: you know what? really too much time spent on this Smile I love collecting them, and found a mint rare variant, especially poch figs, is so great, but it is really an addiction. So that's why I told you I want to slow down a bit for a while, enjoying those I got...

that said, I just received a very nice pbp black bespin guard this morning that makes my day Laughing

in my wanted list for now, there is nothing like a ledy boba removable rocket or vador DT, even ledy jawas or model trem boutlegs are to high for me now (in terms of money of course).
But I might try to trade few rare spare for those I am really after now:
- pbp luke farmboy (this one could be in first list, right  Very Happy )
- no coo death squad commander (this one too)
- mint dsd meccano (same)
- DT luke
- chewe black pouch poch
- leia poch
- luke bespin poch
- orange hair Luke farmboy
- bossk poch light green toxic
- pbp 4 lom with red armor
- leia bespin gold neck (good condition of the gold on neck)
- vador c3po stormtrooper takara
- stormtrooper ledy
- meccano cardbacks
...still lot of things to found

my favorite are always changing, depends how much I have been searching the fig and how did I found it. My first yak face I found for 35euros was quite used, but was one of my favorite for a long time, then I found a mint one, sold the other, and moved to something else.
- My first "rare" fig was a mint meccano tie pilot, in a lot, and that's how I started when I learned this worth more than 200. I hesitated to sell it, but decide to found the other ones: boba meccano, dsd meccano, luke hoth pink face...
- I love my mint dark brown rebel soldier, because it is really different from the classic one. and it is very fragile, so difficult to found a mint one.
- I love poch figs that has lots of poch criteria: rebel commander poch. Mine is mint, I bought it in a lot for quite a decent price, I have been looking for it for few month, it has melt mark, bubbles on painting, specific color of boots, plastic extursion...one of my favorite. han solo hoth is about the same.
- Luke poch brown hair, because I had it for month without having identify it as a poch, and also because it seems prety rare.
- I love the PBP hard plastic, like luke pilot or the stormy, it looks much stronger than the other version, and same, I found it by chance in france for good price, it's mint...
- Leia gaisha is quite cool, much nicer than the other leia bespin imo,
- Wally light green has beautifull flashy colors you don't found in star wars, like a pop figure.
- Chewe unpainted pouch (poch,) is cool figure too, don't really know if poch, but very specific things about this figure (and I think it might be kind of rare one). I will try to post more details about those figs

I took a good cup of coffee and enjoyed looking at all your variant figures.
You managed to build up a great collection. :clap: :clap:

line 2: coo III kenner hk, kenner molded hk, 3 scar: pink face tri and 2 pale pbp differnet scar, 2 poch chocolate (different eyes painting, one has bad sonnic welding, the other one has melt marks and bubbles on legs)
