Well it looks like this Vintage SW Odd Ball thing is catching lol

Here is my first proper vintage Star Wars Odd Ball pick up -

My first Vintage Star Wars Odd Ball Purchase! WaddingtonsVintageSWPuzzle

I may see if the completed Jig Saw will look good framed once it arrives Smile Uli said it could be a bit dark for framing so i might look at diffused glass i guess it depends on the size the complete puzzle comes out at.

I have seen a lot of Vintage SW Puzzles out there and on ebay but hadnt seen any with the actually toys on them as most are just imagines from the films. I was speaking with Uli and Chat and he said there were 2 released depicting the toys this one and one other.

I've been after one of those for a while (the other one too) but never gone out of my way to get one. I have the regular four Waddingtons SW branded jigsaws (one from childhood).

Just the combination of a vintage jigsaw depicting vintage figures is very appealing.

Really cool item, Jay. I also never knew there were jigsaws depicting toys - that's great to see not only the figures but vehicles too Cool Cool

Cheers guys Smile

Im looking forward to this arriving for me the big draw was that it depicts the toys.

Uli has a picture of the other one (which he showed me in chat last night) hopefully he can add that picture to this thread.

Cheers Jay

Yeah i like them as well bro.

Funny thing is i wasnt searching for them at all i was just seeing what was ending soonest (after a few beers lol) and this had 3 minutes left and i thought considering its 100% complete the price looked cheap so i pulled the trigger. Previously the only vintage sw jigsaws i had seen are just of images from the film its was definately the fact that it depicted the toys that drew me to it!

Got my Jigsaw today cheers

Its seems the postmen are working sundays to try and clear the back log i have had 4 items arrived yesterday and today!

Now im bloody stuck trying to put the jigsaw together i have to admit the last jigsaw i attempted was probably 20+ years ago and if i recall i gave up on it lol

Im starting with the edges and working from there but a lot of the pieces look the god dam same! I never had the patience for this sort of thing!

Hang in there, we want to see the finished project, Jay. You think that ones bad, try the 1000 piece Hildebrandt poster art one. That one was a bitch to get together. Most of it was the sky and black. Very Happy

The top 3rd of the pic where its dark and blue is really hard all the pieces look the same its real trial and error getting them in.

Bought a pretty big collection recently and, amoung some very cool stuff, got, not kidding, a packaged mechanical pencil set, esb pencil cases, the Darth Vader Speakerphone and a ROTJ Cork Board. Weird.

I saw these two puzzles a while back. They are somewhat rare from what I can tell. I'd love to have at least one of them in the collection at some point. Very cool find!
