Great coin bill.

@jabbawookie, if you search over on rs for threads about the kellerman index you will find there are multiple variations missing from the printed book. I think there is a website that someone updates with new variations though as they have been discovered. I don't really keep up with carded but I recall reading through some threads involving that.

Thanks Bill. Stefan is selling some lovely 12 and 20 / 21 backs over on FB. The packaging was awesome. Bryan, thanks I’ll try and track the website down. Stefan said he was sure the 21b combo for Ben was in the book when he catalogued in 2010, so it could be an anomaly. I did see a Ben 21b card Back had sold on eBay.com recently when checking, so am sure mines not the only one!

Still haven’t found an updated matrix with the 21b on, and have noted that as well as the RS Kellerman matrix respected sites like Jedi Temple Archives also don’t feature it (but guessing they base there data on the KM).
http://www.jeditemplearchives.com/vintage-star-wars/evg/Ben-Obi-Wan-Kenobi-Kenner-Vintage-Star-Wars.html

I have found plenty of examples of Ben Kenobi 21b cards including an AFA graded example (not that means anything!) so assume it has just not been updated with a verified example. Awaiting my copy of the book to see if that differs from the online version  Smile

@TheJabbaWookie -- Great pick-ups! Glad you hit another goal with that Landspeeder and even the bonus Luke to go with it! Jealous of that VCJ, it's definitely been on my short list of goals. The Obi-Wan and TR cardback are pretty sweet, too!

@Calrissian_Charm -- Nice score on that record. Those Chinese bootleg comics are nuts. Obi-Wan should have rolled up to DV like that. rofl

@Yzerman -- Clean General Lando!

@Broke -- Congrats on the Hollow Cheek!

@hellhippie -- Best. Coin. Ever. :clap: -- Sise is nice, too!

Great pick-ups everyone!

I want to do a bit of background reading before I update my Luke Jedi blog on these beauties, but it’s a coup d'état for me to finally get all 3 Canadian Luke Jedi MOCs.

Particularly the 65-A Blue Sabre – I personally have only ever seen one and I have been after one for around 8 Years. A long wait, but worth it; Kenner Canada is quoted to have marketed/sold only a 10th of the amount of figures that Kenner USA produced, so it is incredibly rare.

Bought roughly at the same time, the 65-A Green Sabre version took 6 weeks to come as it was inspected by customs in the USA and in the UK – longest wait ever.

The 77 back is also interesting as it shows that production for Canadian Luke Jedi switch from Smile (HN) to Taiwan (TJ) for the latter Luke Jedi.

Thanks, Paul and Craig! I never thought I would buy one. I refused to pay IMO so much money for a little figure back in 2007. Now I paid 8 times that price :I am stupid: :I am stupid: :I am stupid:

Took me a while but I finally got examples of Japanese Chirashi mini posters for the Original Trilogy, Prequel Trilogy, the two from the Sequel Trilogy so far and the two standalones plus variants.
Still chasing a few other variants but all films accounted for in the franchise so far cheers

Tommy: know what you mean; just sold mine in part-payment to rebuy my Proof Sheet that I sold for the baby fund. It will cost me a fortune to buy another down the line.

But so glad you have acquired one now Smile


Paul: what can I say! WOW how long did it take to track down all thise posters; are you displaying them in rotation!?

I Remember a poster shop in my home town many moons ago (athena? Or something) that had the posters displayed in some sort of rack of frames that you could flick through the frames fast to see what posters you wanted.

Glad to see some new finds displayed!

Tommy - I agree, these days you have to bite the bullet if you want something fairly rare.

Craig - Thanks. Yeah I remember the Athena posters and ones similar. You'd flip through the giant pages, note the number then take the corresponding rolled up poster stored below it. Neat system. My Chirashi posters are only small and easily stored in a nice folder.
Remind what the proof was you're rebuying? Great you can get hold of it again.

Paul,
Those are killer posters. Very nice. I have one or two japanese posters on my way to Sweden. Will be happy to show them off once they arrive. They are not any of the ones you showed off.

Congrats on a great run of posters.

Craig, it was all about timing when buyng the VCJ. I had the money in hand and it surfaced this really nice one. I think I paid a pretty fair price for it considering it was graded and an AFA 85 nm+. I reckon it will only increase in value over time. Not that I ever believe it will be up for sale Smile

Cheers Bill. How's goes it, haven't seen you about in a while, still collecting?

You're right about displaying the mini posters - I've manage to acquire a few doubles and these have gone into clip frames on the wall. They look absolutely brilliant and take up hardly any space.

Some more paper works to add. 1978 Star Wars Weekly UK competition pages for Ingersol and Texas Instruments watches, Bath Bubbles and 8mm Home Movies. An ESB Weekly ad, and a US Star Comics ad featuring The Ewoks.
