It's a bittersweet couple of weeks. I've had to sell off several Leias to pay for other non-Star Wars things, like car repairs, but there are still some SW items trickling in to ease the pain. Here's something that most people probably think too nit-picky to worry about, but I haven't been happy since I got my opaque Ledy Vader saber, and even wondered if it was a repro. Well, I got a translucent thick tip today. Now I just need a thin tip. Anyone know if they were produced in translucent and opaque as well?

It's also interesting that they're both lettered, but probably means little. I'm not sure how the Ledy lettered sabers ran as opposed to the Kenner, that if they were a short run or not, but then maybe the translucent and opaque were produced side by side. Don't know... yet.

He's standing by his brother here, and be damned if it's easy to tell from the pictures that they're different Laughing

"Vader, it's for you."
"Who is it?"
"Child support collection."
"Nooooooooooooooo!"

Great stuff lately. The Mexican bank I believe there were others also besides Vader. I seem to recall a gammorean guard specifically and an emporer guard maybe, not sure on that one.

@trappedtexan Hey, Bryan! Long time, so it seems. In the background of my picture of the Vader phone is an R2 from the same company. The seller of the Vader bank had two for some reason, one unpainted, and sold them as a lot. What I was able to find is that these were given out by Bancomer Ahorro as an incentive for opening a savings account. There's definitely a Yoda out there, but these are pretty rare and I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for one.

Don’t often post in here but I thought I’d share this one, as it’s the first of my goals for 2018 ticked off  namely a bit more PBP. So here’s my recently acquired Caramel Boots Luke Bespin. On the hunt for his cooler dark boots brother now.  Very Happy

Sent you a pm. Also I think I was getting the lines mixed up in my head. The gammorean and royal guards are part of the Adam Joseph banks line. It was bugging me so I had to look it up.

Thanks. I’ll enjoy the hunt for a keenly priced one. It’s one of the most fun bits about the hobby.

One of my grail pieces. Incomplete, but I believe this is the hardest part... now a robe and a blaster.

Wow, Cal! I think you and I are on the same wavelength with figs. I was just thinking about looking into one.

So glad you got one of your grail pieces! The hunt continues for the rest!

nice ledy jawa cheers
yeah the hood is tough but the rest isn't cheap either .
I remember when I wouldn't pay the 300 for a complete one and it still eludes me today .
I only own the figure as I will never spend 1000 plus on a figure and with the ledy repro accessories out there im just plain scared off

I wish you the best of luck then! This was a straight up moment of chance. Mexican seller offering 2, one complete and this guy. Couldn't afford the complete, but I squeezed some rocks to get this one. Honestly, I scouted several without the hood and doubted I'd find one hooded, ungraded and even close to affordable, so, this was huge.

Lily Ledy Death Squad Commander, with a (I think) cool paint error. At least I believe it to be a paint error. Not sure what else it could be. Would seem they missed the silver layer on his belt.

Nice Ledy Jawa and DSC. I’d really love a POCH DSC but they’re pretty hard to come by.

They have got to be some of the best coins (and figures). Much better than the Last 17. Nice one Bill.

Picked up this fella up the other day off eBay. I think he’s my favourite Luke incarnation, and IMO definitely one of the 3 iconic ROTJ figures along with BS and ERG. I know subzero hates this cardback artwork, but it’s actually one of my favourites - proper dynamic; so glad I could pick it up on a MOC. The bubble is fairly yellow (but crack and ding free) and there’s a bit of edgewear, but it’s pretty flat and not bad for a little over £100.
