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!

Great additions guys. And if you haven't seen John's post today about USPS, be glad all they did was drop the box this guy was packed in. Ha ha ha

Love the VCJ. I have doubts that's a figure I'll obtain, primarily because my wife has an idea of how much they sell for.

But, this, for $25 feels like I practically stole it. The sleeve is beat, but the record looks fantastic

I don't even know what to do with these as far as display goes, but I really love em, oddballs that they are. Vintage Chinese bootleg comics. They don't exactly tell the story of the movies, but jump around from scenes taken from the movie and then just random weird stuff. Below are some pics including one showing what is apparently the Massassi Temple with not one but 2 Sphinxes, and the last being my favorite where Obi Wan is an armor wearing, motorcycle riding, rocket firing knight who drinks J&B whiskey.

That record is awesome, and those Chinese Bootleg Comics... well that’s something you don’t see every day. Great stuff. Thanks for posting.

Cal - wow those Chinese bootleg comics are just brilliant  :Drool:  never seen those before, great oddball pickup for sure cheers

Thank you, guys. Yeah, that Lando was pretty sweet. Kenner should have given him a light blue cloak though  cheers

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

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

Thanks, man! Well, I have a cabinet, but that is full with boxed items. So I need to buy another cabinet to have this one in. I have a few more boxes that I also need to display as well.

Paul that is a very nice vinyl collection. I see some non-English stuff there, something I'm always envious of. For some reason I love anything non-English. I just bought a couple Hungarian novelizations for ANH and ESB

I bought a blaster worthy of a Jedi or a General. It's a black palace blaster. Can be hard to tell by the pic.

Yes, I do know LJK comes with a grey or brown palace blaster Wink

You got the vinyl when it was a good time to get it. I have a decent collection myself, but wanted a few albums and was surprised — prices are through the roof for a lot of items! Albums that were $2 or $10 garage sale/flea market finds are going for big bucks. Same for vintage T-shirts.

Cool to see a fellow fan of Samhain. Not often I find one . . . I like the noisy and experimental nature.

On topic: I think Kenner nailed Billy Dee's likeness; a very cool figure indeed.

Correct. Some of the prices now are crazy. Factor in the shipping for international versions and it's not cheap at all. So glad I got the majority of mine when as you say it was a good time.

Have to throw this link out for Tony's Restraining Bolt which has always been a collection to admire and my go to ref guide for SW vinyl:  http://www.restrainingbolt.com/sw/starwarsmusic.html

The Ben is a 21b which doesn’t appear on the RS Kellerman matrix
http://www.rebelscum.com/kellermancards120.pdf

I have a copy of the book on order, so going to check if that’s an error on RS behalf or a previously uncategorised front back combo.
