PostSubject: A very long time in the making.... The ESB Four Horsemen   Tue Jan 17, 2017 8:36 pm

Years ago I fell in love with foreign carded figures and my goal was to collect one or every release. It was a good goal and kept me pretty happy in my quest. Of the many releases, the ESBs were toughest. Harbert only released a Fett and Yoda. Sears Vaccuforms popped up once in a while. A lot of ESB Meccano's are locked in collections. The POCHs are mostly single digit examples.  I call them the Four Horsemen because they symbolized the end of my collecting journey because I assumed they would be the final ones. So while I'm not saying this is the end, I humbly present my Four Horsemen....

Luke Hoth Sears Vaccuform
Yoda Harbert
Leia Bespin POCH
Leia Hoth Meccano

That's impressive. Being somewhat a novice, I only recently I learned about Harbert. I never knew of a vacuform card. Those got to be very rare. If it's the end, it's a great ending.

That Luke looks great. I know you have been after one of those for a long while. When you told me the other day you finally got one I was super happy to hear it and it is even better to see it. Congrats on finally landing that piece.
