hellhippie: Awesome Yodas! I for one have not seen one as Green as your example. Thank you for sharing and well done. Congrats on the Ledy band and good luck with the accessories.

Bill - congrats on Yoda and also the Rebo band - Max is a super blue colour there  cheers  Good luck hunting down the accessories.

John - love the Funko prototypes. The wife and son have a fair few Funkos so I'm used to seeing those around the apartment. I have the Luke X Wing bobble head.

Centurio - congrats on the pop up R2 cheers

Been ages since I added anything significant to the collection, and even longer since I added to my Japanese run, so I'm really stoked to add this cool 1978 boxed die cast Darth Vader by Takara cheers cheers




Now, being Takara and Japanese, and knowing their love for robots and adding strange touches and details to their toys (transforming X Wing Fighters - missile launching R2-D2s etc) I'm not surprised to see that they not only gave Darth a slight 'robot-look' makeover, but issued him with a frickin crossbow!! What a Face  Twisted Evil

ArtooDetour: Wow that Vader is really cool I've never seen one. That crossbow is wild! Where on earth did you find this gem?

Thanks TheSchwartz. He was released alongside a die cast C-3PO (which fired missiles from his belly Razz ) I've been wanting either one of those, or a Takara R2-D2 for ages, finally saw Darth - and he looked fun, so nabbed him quick.

Really cool and thanks for sharing.  I've seen the Takara alt head 3PO's floating around and have wanted one but they go for big money.

Great stuff lately guys. Bill you know I love some ledys and the band looks great. That Yoda is green for sure. I didn't know it was specific to the 41d, but looked around a bit and it seems it quite possibly is exclusive to that card.

Paul, great Vader. There is also a large size Chewbacca that fits the same scale as these doesn't it? He is 7 inch I think. Is that the same scale or maybe not?

I've been gone for too long! So many pick-ups  -deep breath-

Here goes! bounce

@Craig T - I don't know what else to say but WOW!! What a haul indeed. Does that Luke Stormie have the right blaster? The Yak Face and EV-9D9 are awesome as well. How are the joints? And really cool Biker Scouts and glassware!

@TheJabbaWookie - Lucky! I'm still in the hunt for this one but it always goes a few dollars past my max. scratch

@Calrissian_Charm - Minty Leia! That white is beautiful when it's on point. Congrats!

@centurio - That's not an easy figure to come complete nowadays, so that's a huge pick-up! Saber looks good to me.

@DarthBerizing - Modern?! Funko?! EW! .....

lol!  Kidding! Love the Kanan. Are you all caught up with Rebels?

@hellhippie - Bill, first and foremost.. JEALOUS of that 41D Yoda! The trio looks great. Secondly, congrats on the band. At least you got the piano!

@ArtooDetour - That's a sweet Takara Vader.. but i'm convinced you somehow convinced us that he actually does come with a crossbow.....  lol!

Let me know when you find the exclusive, dual-weilding Vader with chainsaws!

After my MITW Vader, I knew that I had to have MORE Vaders. The order should be changed up a little. Number 2 is a Lily Ledy I bought on its own. His paint is gorgeous. His saber is coming via a separate post. 1,3, and 4 were ordered as a lot for $70. No idea on origins, COOs, etc, but I figured the price was worth it. Ended up with Kenner HK (#1) sharing a LL COO, Raised bar no COO w/ a surprisingly gray head (#3), and another nice Kenner HK (#4). At the end is my first Vader with a lettered saber. And then the big guy. Love him. Plus, in a few days, I should have my PBP Vader cheers




And, I am terribly jealous of that Takara Vader Smile

Oh, man, I don't know. hahaha There are so many variations! Shocked I'd definitely like to pick up the major, regional variants, though.

Some paper items to go in my small collection of paper items. Hardcover Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Club edition of the Star Wars novelization, 1977 theater program, Empire Strikes Back notebook which is the full script illustrated with original storyboards, and a weird glossy that would have been handed out at in-store appearances by Darth Vader, himself. Unfortunately it's not signed by the Dark Lord of the Sith Laughing

Cheers Bryan. Yes, the Chewbacca you're thinking of is also Takara and was 8 inches high released on moc with a Darth Vader, See-Threepio and a Stormtrooper which was misspelled as "Stoomtrooper" on the package. Much of the Takara stuff is quite scarce and not cheap (I don't think it was cheap even in the days when SW prices were normal).

@Calrissian_Charm, that's a nice lineup of Vaders cheers  Sweet paper items too. I have the theatre programme as well, it's a cool early item. There are two variations of this - a smooth cover and a pebble-tone cover. That's great you're putting together a run of paper items! What else do you have? One of my favourite SW collecting areas is paperworks.

Will add my latest new paper item here a bit later which arrived recently Very Happy

Got the transfers too cheers
