I've been collecting for a number of years now and think it's time to share with other collectors.I'll continue to add to this post as my collection grows but figured now is as good a time as any to start.

I started with having one of each figure and quickly settled on my childhood favorite, Luke Jedi, as a focus. I was able to acquire all the domestic MOC 65s, 77s and 79s. I added card backs of all the domestic figures and then branched out to obtain Lily Ledy, Palitoy, Canadian and other card backs. I have a Meccano on the way Smile I have all the loose variants including a Lily Ledy and Toltoys (who is missing his cape and weapons).

I do have quite a few pieces from my childhood that survived like Leia Boushh, Jabba's playset, a Cloud Car and Ewok Village with the original box. But my Jedi Luke is nowhere to be found...

I plan to work on the display by adding some 3 step risers to my Detlof cases in the near future and will update the post when I'm finished.

I'm currently working on card backs, Lily Ledy figures and loose variants. I hope you like what I've started.

Man that's a lot of Luke's, very cool collection you have. Just curious does your falcon have the training ball, almost everyone I see is missing that Smile.

Thanks! Yes, it does. I had to rebuild my Falcon. I had some original parts from my childhood like the training ball and string, landing gear, strut, etc. It took me a while but I eventually got all the pieces. I just need to spend some time fixing the broken strut and replacing it with the extra one.

Don't know how I missed this thread first time around but glad it got bumped. Craig t is a huge Luke jedi guy so surprised he hasn't hit this thread also.

Aaron,

I only just stumbled on to your limelight; I had no idea you had posted sorry - I'm a busy Daddy to a even busier baby, so my time is limited and I hadn't check this section of the forum in a good while.

But let me welcome you to TIG and well done on your Luke Jedi focus - you have assembled a really cool collection there. Hopefully you will be able to post bigger photos, as I would love to see in detail what cool stuff you have accumulated. An argentine Top Toys Luke? Kudos!!! I see you also have LiliLedy cardback - if you find another let me know!

I like the fact you still have the complement of you childhood Falcon and other vintage toys. Hopefully the childhood Luke will surface

Please do keep us all updated!

Aaron, welcome to TIG and congrats on all those Luke Jedi examples. Look forward to some new pics and to see what else is going on inside those cabinets.

Sweet collection! Thanks for sharing. You should post some close up pics so people cans see the variants. I haven't gotten my figures graded either though I've bought some already graded. I am fairly obsessed with Luke Jedi's too and recently did a couple videos on him on youtube:
