Sweet looking figures there Bill Smile

I did pick up a nice set off a guy here in the city. The figures are in really nice shape with a few accessories included. I still need to go through them all to get a better idea of what's what.




And here are a few closeups on some items. I swear that top stormie blaster looks odd compared to the other two below it.
To me it looks like two blue ones and the top is a dark blue. The photos are not adjusted for color as that just makes it more confusing for me.






Oh and here are some photos of the case that I got as well. Never even thought about that til Paul asked lol. New Years Resolution pay more attention, yup that will last all of an hour Smile
.






Thanks for looking
Larry

Yes in deed its a bit worn but nothing major, I added the photos to the rest.

I would have liked to of had the cash to get my friends figure as well. Its a ROTJ Darth Vader after asking him some questions I found out it was made in Mexico but has no Lil Ledy on the front anywhere I just learned something I didn't know Smile.

Good pickups there Larry. The case is a Canadian bilingual one. I don't know much about it other than that, but I think the bilingual one is rarer than its US counterpart. We didn't have the second language on it. These cases are really great in my opinion. I have various ones from star wars, empire, and return of the jedi. I still keep all my extra figures stored in them actually as they are more secure to me than the Vader and c3po cases.

@hellhippie Do your wife and friend have to do their research before buying you these gifts? lol!

Great haul indeed.

@arohk Nice Larry! My eyes always automatically go to Yoda, and he looks clean! Also a big fan of that case.

Are you adding everyone to the collection?

No pics, as I just bought it, but I'm ending 2016 with a Clipper Vader in sealed baggie with a NM box that opened naturally as the tape deteriorated. I never thought I'd own one bounce

Yep. Ungraded and under $200, which seems like a decent prize when comparing cheers

When i first joined rebelscum I was offered a clipper mailer Vader for a super bargain. I regret that I passed on that Vader as I had a deal in the works on some ledy figures at that time. Even then in 2013 though the price was a real bargain and I should have went through with the purchase.

That's what I understand, its only a change in packaging, so why I only wanted one in a sealed mailer, or carded if I collected MOC. Otherwise, I wouldn't bother. But what about the Macau baggie? I was wondering if it's the same sculpt

I wouldn't know but there are a few differing pbp vaders out there so they must be different in the mailers I would think. jeez prices have really gone up I got my mailer in 2015 for 32$ Evil or Very Mad

I'm trying to figure out if this is a typo Shocked

It's possible/likely I didn't get the best deal possible, but it is the first loose, ungraded I've seen at the price I got, at least $50 under average I've seen. Honestly though, I find things like this difficult to value because they're uncommon. So I looked at PBP Vader prices and added 25%.

Big plus that I have the PBP loose with the ragusse cape already, so this textured one makes it unique in my collection bounce

This is my favorite vintage purchase, so far. A plastic Mexican Darth Vader coin bank Cool

The only unfortunate is that it appears they used some sort of lacquer which has turned yellow and stained the whole. Even still, it came partially wrapped in cellophane  (which there was no way I wasn't going to take it off) and complete with his instructions and "keys"
