Pleased to add these 2000 AD comics featuring Star Wars to my paperworks collection cheers  

2000 AD Sci-Fi Special 1980 ESB Photo Special








2000 AD Sci-Fi Special 1983 ROTJ Colour Scans






You can see my run so far at: https://thevintagetoyadvertiser.org/2016/05/01/2000-ad-comics-featuring-star-wars/


Next up is an advert for the Parker Brothers video game Death Star Battle




And finally, BIG thanks to Bryan for sending me this cool prize. Long story short, I won a prize from Bryan and Bryan won a prize from Coach. Bryan thought I could use the Rebo band set that he won more than him, so look what turned up. I'm well happy as I really miss my previous Rebo band which I traded a few years back. Thanks Bryan  cheers

Glad the band arrived safe and sound. Love the comics, star wars and dredd combined is always going to be a winner in my book.

just got this kickass small v power droid on the left .
here he is compared to the much more common large v one .

quite possibly one of the most boring and hardest variants to track down ive ever tried to acquire
for one thing most people don't know they have him and the second thing is that its very hard to tell from just a picture without a comparison shot .

differerences are smaller v, smaller sticker , smaller body and paint apps . also the grooves on the top of the figure are much shallower

Im very excited to finally have a variant of everyones favorite figure the mighty power droid

no really I am excited ... check it !!!

Great acquisition there bill. Your right, without side by side photos it is difficult to tell if it's a short v or not. I had already had one luckily so when I found out about him was able to check him off the list right away.

Bill -- Great looking figures. Glad to see you tracked down a grail item, too! Do you have a room dedicated to just variants yet? Laughing

Paul -- Very cool paper additions. geek Those pictures are pretty awesome. And nice band! Everyone seems to be in excellent condition.

Congrats Bill. I really like the Power Droid figure - it's a proper cheesy-looking cool retro robot and reminds me of a walking TV. It doesn't even look like it should be in SW but it is cheers
