Today is a big, big day for my collection as I come two steps closer to having what I consider a "complete" set of vintage 3.75 Darth Vader figures. By my reckoning I need a Takara, Top Toys, Model Trem, 1st Gen Polish, and a Hungarian bootleg.

wow, nice uzays. congrats on those. haven't seen many of the others for sale in a looooooong time. used to be a guy named patsy (screen name was different) that all he had was model trems. If he is around anymore that would be my best guess for that. takara and top toys are not super rare, come up a few times a year or so. 1st gen polish I would probably try Jacob. let me hunt some user names and I will put in here who I would try to contact.

http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t4235p25-the-polish-bootleg-thread
Jacob is starwarsaw username in this thread and martin also would be a good contact. they don't post much here but rebelscum I think they are both still active.

patsy username is wattosjunkpile. Havnet seen him in a while though but he may have an email contact if you dig around some. Martin may also have some trems, seems he collected them also but it has been a long time since I kept up with any bootleg collectors.

Patsy is who I bought the Uzay from, actually Very Happy He sold those (and a ton of other rare bootleg stuff) on Facebook to build up for, apparently, a large Model Trem collection. I had a line on a very nice MT Vader from a seller in Brazil, but my financial circumstances have dramatically changed, and I just can't swing it right now. Had to pass. Thanks for the tips, Bryan

Pretty sure I remember a takara Vader up for sale not long ago. Honestly I am a member of many star wars sites though as well as have moved away from star wars collecting due to price so I read a lot of sites for a lot of different toy lines. I am trying to recall the mod on rs who lives in Japan, he or a user named musasa (think that is his name) are the two guys I would hit up first if I was actively searching for one. Also try asking Richard H who does the broadcast show, he is generally informed and in touch with many different corners of the hobby. It's not like a takara Vader is a prototype with only a few examples existing, it was a production piece. They aren't all over the place, but do enough searching about and i bet you could shake one loose. It may cost you a considerable amount because the owner isn't looking to move it for a steal, but they are out there and can be found is my point.

thanks but i was referring to ones out on open sale threads or auctions . i know a few people who have them but none are for sale and even though i believe everything has a price i dont want to off say 800$ to pressure someone into selling . i only own a takara stormtrooper without the gun and im pretty excited that i even own him . scarce isne the word for takaras' imo . theyre nearly impossible to get loose these days an d i sure aint buying a carded one and opening it What a Face

Great pickups everyone :Drool:

Cal - some superb Vader pieces added. Congrats on the Uzay and Taiwan. Love the Vader phone  cheers

Bill - Good going on the coin run, that's quite a collection you're already building. And nice latest variants too. The blank raised bar no coo Rebel Soldier is well cool  Cool

JabbaWookie - congrats on the Luke Jedi moc, Luke Bespin Pbp, and the awesome Tusken moc  cheers

Tommy - hi mate, great to see you back and that's a sweet Bilogo Snowspeeder  cheers


I finally got hold of a couple of vintage ads I've been after for a few years. From the 1982 Wilton Yearbook of Cake Decorating  









And an ad from 2000 AD for the ROTJ sticker album.

Thanks Paul. Love those adds. I see that Chewbacca candle on eBay a good bit and looks like a nightmare. I can't imagine seeing that thing melting on my cake

Very cool ad.

I had that Darth Vader cake for somewhere around my 10th birthday. He was gray. Black would not have tasted very good, I was told. . .

Been awhile, but you guys have had some amazing pick-ups!

@Yzerman -- Nice looking Bi-Logo Snowspeeder! How are you going to display it?

@Calrissian_Charm -- You're on a Vader tear! Congrats on the Uzay and Polish Bootleg. Good luck on the DT if you pursue it. Maybe it'll come to you! bounce (and nice Yoda! :Drool: )

@TheJabbaWookie -- Glad you grabbed your Molded Face Luke Jedi! Completes a nice little group you've got going on.

@hellhippie -- Shiny coin, Bill! Continuing or starting a focus? And cool Soldier with the no COO raised bar!

@ArtooDetour -- Great sticker album and mag, Paul. Now you can make me a cake! cheers How many 2000 AD do you have now in your collection?

Thanks Paul. Love that top ESB ad. Picked up one of my goal items for 2018 at the weekend. MIB Kenner Landspeeder with pop up bonnet (hood), complete with inserts and all the trimmings, plus bonus Luke Skywalker. Very happy with this one.

Thanks guys Smile

@darthmatt22 if you mean 2000 Ad comics then including comics, annuals, graphic novels about a 150 or so - a mere drop in the ocean given its character base. If you mean SW related covers/ads/features then seven and counting.

@thejabbawookie - that boxed Kenner Landspeeder is a thing of beauty :Drool:  and you got a bonus Luke too cheers

Right I reckon this will be my last post for a while in latest acquisitions... Finally joined the VCJ club thanks to a very reasonably priced offer on FB. The little fella turned up in the post today and he’s in fabulous condition, not a scratch on him, in part to the ”above and beyond” packaging... which is just as well as the parcel force delivery man dropped it on the floor as soon as he got out of the van!
