One step at a time. You want me to set fire to the repro blasters? I can totally do that. Twisted Evil

I really don't think I have an interest in that but at the end of this I may get bored. I love the chase.

Also I think I do have a variant already. I was looking at 2 Klaatu that I have. 2 different colors and 2 different skirt materials

This upcoming week is going to be huge for me. So many things coming in.  I'll keep everyone in suspense for a while. I know loose figures aren't new here and lots of members have the entire line but it's big for me and I like sharing

@trappedtexan: Bryan, that is one awesome cardback thread. If anyone has lili Ledy Cardback please let me know Very Happy


@Broke - some more cool acquisitions, I agree with you... 4-LOM (or is that Zuckuss now?) is a cool bounty hunter!

Pub trivia: General Crix Madine was supposed to be clean shaven? Kenner made a mistake and gave him a sculpt with a beard. So LFL helped Kenner out and obliged crix with a fake beard for the scenes that he was in so that Kenner didn't have correct some costly moulds. I Learnt that from the collector panels in Celebration E. Quite cool how a toy company completely changed one guy's face to fit it's toy.

Talking of Broke - his enthusiasm has helped influence my next buy: It a mint Rebo Set...



Well I managed to get a copy before they sell out and it arrived today:



I must say - it looks great!!! I have had a quick scope through, photo are big and clear and I'm going to take an early bedtime so I can read it in detail study

Nice pickups everyone!!

@broke - you know the ATAT Commander has the wrong blaster right? That's a Squidhead blaster. The good part is that it sells for more than the blue version

This is going to sound terrible but I haven't gotten totally around to learning which colors go with which figures. I just make sure they have the right kind. After I learn this I'll go back and fix it all.

All the figures that had their repro weapons/accessories replaced with real ones today. Everything in this picture is authentic:

This is a bit of a naughty purchase, as I have bought way too much this month already ... welcome to the church little guy!

I will be smashing him out of that case once I can get some Oscar Display Cases to keep him out of trouble.

Also, a quick question. What's an Oscar display case?


PS I have 15 figures to go after I bought Klaatu Skiff Guard and complete Leia Endor last night.

I NEED 15 MORE. I started this journey on April 15, 2017 and I am almost done.

Nice VC jawa Craig. I am not a fan of graded but since it is already, I don't know if I would bust it out or not.

Broke here is Oscars site: http://www.oscarscases.com
He is in Mexico and has been making display acrylic star wars cases for a long while now.

Congrats Broke on fitting out your figures with the new authentic weapons!

Craig - congrats on the VCJ, what a beauty cheers  look forward to seeing him out of the case! Congrats too on the Sy Snootles band!  

Craig was good enough to send me his X Wing pilot Ackbar to go with my growing custom X-Wing pilots and personnel.

Here's a new group shot. Thanks again Craig!
