I'm going to say this (for me) is a mic drop moment.

Carded Hungarian Boba Fett!!

Second, and I mean this in a good way, this is the most insane Vintage SW action figure collectible I have ever seen... ever... I think you might have hit me in the head when you dropped that mic... Congrats again on an amazing addition to your collection!

John - congrats on that carded Hungarian Fett. What a top addition!

John - that Hungarian is crazy! I didn't even know there was a Hungarian line, but to find a carded one like that is absolutely amazing! the chest color is completely different to any Fett I've ever seen and he's stole Chrewy's Bowcaster, the thief! Shocked

These are likely to be my last pickups for a while due to a trip back to the UK...

I'm getting dangerously close to beginning a fairly decent Ledy line-up with this burgundy cape Squiddy and removable-hood Jawa...


And I was pretty pleased with this ANH DL-44 Blaster too. I've been looking for one for a while but this was in nice condition and just poorly photographed on eBay so I grabbed it for under $30 total. Electrics don't work but that can often be rectified. Does anyone know if the tip of the blaster was sonic welded/glued or should both halves come apart once screws have been removed?

Sweet ledy figures.  Congrats on the latest pickups.

The Hungarian line was not officially licensed. for more info on them when your on the home page of the gunnery forum further down the list is the outer realm section which is all about bootlegs. My favorite line is the Mexican s.a. line but mainly because I cant afford Hungarians. ha ha ha.

I am not sure on the numbers of the Hungarian carded fetts are out there, but cant be to many. To give a touch of rarity I have been around for a few years and have never seen a carded fett on the market and less than 5 loose ones. I am only on the forums though so not sure what passes on facebook.

Mat, congrats on the beautiful Ledy figures & the Han Psitol! I especially love the Squidhead & Jawa figures because of their cloaks... I really love cloth variants because the variation has such a big visual impact on the figure...

@trappedtexan

Thanks for the info, I had no idea the Hungarian Fett was a bootleg... Such a super cool, crazy collectible...

Not for nothing guys, but I really have seen the coolest stuff since I got up here... Congrats to everyone that has shared photos of the their latest additions!

Great pick up Bill!

I put her as one the figures you better get complete. 4 Accessories is just too much to cobble together.

INCOMING: Electronics don't work but I might be able to fix that. It has the 3 position handle which seems to be difficult to find these days. I'll part the handle out and put it on a functional rifle if it comes to that:

I'd like to see the whole process of fixing that if you get around to it!

Otherwise, such a great piece to add to your collection. Cool

What is "GoPro"? Good pictures of step by step processes will likely be helpful to people in the future. In fact there may be some that have done this before with this rifle, but I have never seen any. Not saying its a must but if you want to do the community a favor that is an awesome way to contribute. Start a new thread on fixing the 3 position rifle or some such title though so we don't completely derail the acquisitions one.

I'm going to get it all white again because it's a bit mismatched now. Should be simple.
