I need 3 figures to complete the loose collection. I've been really lucky to get things working but I can fix most things so that's never a concern for me

Hey Broke,

Congrats on the new stand... Is it the card board backdrop for the Action Display Arena?

Don't know if I got the name right but in any case congratulations on the stand, and the great vintage goodness that you have added lately...  Love that Falcon too Very Happy

I can't tell if your asking because you are unsure or if there is something different about it and your trying to call attention to it? If your asking what it is, it's this:

If there is something off about it, I can't tell. It looks good though and fits right on the shelf there nicely.

Sorry for not being more clear. I replaced the 40th anniversary diorama with this vintage one like I had as a kid. Here is my old pic:

The stand is original. The stickers look like they've been replaced because they are in too good of shape. And the backdrop is reproduction until I can find a loose vintage one.

Hellhippie,

First of all, Congrats on a great looking set of figures. Never even heard of a red rectangle R5-D4, but I am curious to know more about it.

Secondly, and more importantly, I am glad to hear that you are feeling better from your latest shoulder surgery. I hope that your injury continues to improve to the point that you forget it even happened. I wish you the very best regarding your health and recovery.

Well I feel like a douche, I knew you were having surgery and it completely slipped my mind to ask when it was and how you were doing. Sorry Bill. Glad to hear it is behind you and hopefully it is the last they will have to do on that shoulder.

Great pickups also, probably time to update the limelight since your collection is growing leaps and bounds. Especially when you get the bib back from Ozio. In that thread I mentioned an acrylic company and auto correct changed it. I was saying instead of grading you could go with GW acrylic product. They do make really nice cases. I had one for one of the vlix figures I had. The rear slid open to allow them to still be gotten to, really a good way to display if you want the figure in acrylic but still want access to it on occasion.

Hellhippie, thanks for the info man. I have a few R5's I will have to check the decals and see if by some crazy chance I have one, although I doubt it, Lol! Stormie Smiley Stormie Smiley

Broke, congrats on the Blue Snaggletooth! That is one of the coolest figures in the whole line in my opinion, great piece to add. I know it was expensive, but if you can add a Blue Snaggy to your collection it's a great day!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Congrats on grabbing one and the paint is decent on him. Many times almost all the silver is gone from the boots and the buckle.

Broke,

Congrats on acquiring one of the coolest figures in the entire line! I agree with Bill, and Bryan's comments. He looks great and has lots of silver paint intact. Enjoy adding him to your display man Smile

The boots don't look superb but I'm pretty happy with just having him. I've never understood the whole dent vs no dent thing

Also my apologies for hogging this thread. I feel like I'm dominating it now with stuff that's coming in every few days. But it sure is fun.

Broke,

Don't apologize man, it's great that you are sharing your collecting adventures, and I love looking at all the photos too!!

I have stuff to photograph too, but I have been too busy with B.S. to get some photos done... hopefully soon though Smile

The dent no dent is just that. On the front of one of the boots theres either a dent or there isnt one.
The value and rarity between the 2 is equal in most peoples eyes

Did a quick pic search on google just so I can show this.




I believe I read in a thread long ago that the dent is believed to have been caused by some debris that got in the mold and it just hardened on the wall so some have it and some don't. Not sure if that is accurate as it seems that would have to be a piece of metal or something to be that hard that it stood up to the plastic injection. I tend to think it may have been the actual mold itself was made with a defect and it just wasn't caught by quality control.

Great additions John.
