Here's today's score. SW-D Baggie Vader, ROTJ 65-A Vader, Gentle Giant Vintage Han Solo SMall Head and Chewie, and ArtFX Vader. I know the last 3 aren't vintage, but cool anyway.

Great stuff Tad! That 65A Vader looks to be in great shape, mind giving us a closer look?

I have the Koto Vader on order from BBTS as we speak, can't wait to get it.

Those 12" GG figures are sweet. I'm waiting for the Walrusman and Hammerhead.

Here are my latest pickups. Some loose figures for my long suffering loose set. It gets put on the back burner alot because of the bootleg addiction.
I am particularly happy with Cliff Claven (Hoth Commander). Anyone else think Madine looks like a wimpy Grizzly Adams? The only one of these I had as a kid was the At-At Commander. I'll have to keep the cats away from Ackbar, they love fish. X-Wing Luke is ready to take on the whole Empire. And I'll have to hunt down a blaster for the B-Wing Pilot. I had to look up which one he is, I always forget. Thanks Dallas.

And here is my favorite this week. Dallas(Sith Noob) and I were talking about Black Polish Snowtroopers one time. So he made me one. I think it looks pretty damn cool. The flash of the camara doesn't do it justice. He's going to stand watch over the living room out here by the computer. Thanks Dallas.

Cool pickups, Paul!

Here's some things I received today.

MPC Model still wrapped

A couple of Vader coins from China

A rad Lily Ledy Vader Puzzle. ( Thanks, John!)

And a PBP Vader with a better pic of the 65-A Vader from yesterday.

Your latest Vintage Purchases! Volume 5!!! - Page 5 2011-05-20_21-36-59_809

The 65-A is in great shape. Just minor shelf wear on the edges. I would guess it would grade AFA80, with the Bubble 85, and the Figure 85.

The PBP is pretty rough, though. The bubble is pretty crunched, and has come loose on the left and bottom. Might not have been the best buying decision, but this is the first one I'd seen for sale since I decided to have a Vader focus, so I figured I should grab it as at least a place holder.

BTW, I also just got a new lighting tent ( I think that's what it's called) so I can start using my Nikon and take some better pics instead of my DroidX camera. Hopefully my next update will be alot better. And I'll get some better pics of the 65-A Vader for you, Jesse.

Tthose Vader pieces kick ass! I've never seen a carded bootleg like that one on the right, and I LOVE those 3-packs (I've got 3 myself). Those coins are very neat too.

Thanks, Merlin! The Ledy puzzle is mostly wrapped. There are a few tears, but overall about 80% still in plastic.

Here are some new additions I found waiting for me today. Go easy on me with the pics, I just got a new lightbox setup, and I'm still trying to figure out the best way to take pics with my DSLR.

Thanks to Paul for introducing me to these, I found this 12" Vader Lamp.

AFA 85 AT-ST Driver, and my first polish bootleg, a Second Gen Polish Vader with Cape (Thanks, Jakub!!)

And my coolest Vader piece yet, an unpunched 12-B Takara Vader. I could actually use some help on this one. I believe it is the Takara sculpt, but I can't tell for sure. There's an up-close pic, so any opinions would be great! It's a dull grey head, and it looks like the sculpts I've seen in my online research. And it looks different than my other Vaders when I compare them. But I look to the TIG for all knowledge! If it's not the Takara sculpt, I still love it! Having the Takara sculpt would just be a bonus for me!

An easy way to identify if it is a Takara sculpt is by looking at the COO information under the POP. If it is blank its the Takara sculpt.

Tad cool Vadere pickups. Of corse I most love the bootleg goodness. I had a feeling that you'd be looking for one of those lamps after I showed you mine. Pretty cool aren't they? I want to pic up a few more of them myself. Each one is a little different becasue everyone used different paints and colors. I think I love them because mine was such a big part of my childhood.

Yeah, man. Those things are hideously awesome. Ive found a couple one-bay, and this is the first one that arrived. You're totally right, the coolest thing is that every one is different. I wonder what the story is behind each one. LIke if it was a gift like yours was, or a collector painted it back in the day. Just too cool. Thanks again for showing me about them!

Hi guys

Here are my last pick ups Smile


I met a guy on a flea market , he had some 80's toys so i asked him if he had some vintage SW . He said that he had some from the old films. So we aranged to met up the folowing week .

I have been searching for some moc's that was sold in Denmark . And this was an old guy , so i he colud have some vintage moc's.

When we met up he had some vintage moc's , but none of them had danish price tags Sad .

But i got some nice moc's and my first Troilogos Smile

Emperor

Anakin
Your latest Vintage Purchases! Volume 5!!! - Page 5 Th_swtrilogo006

And then this one. And this is where it gets wild.

It's an Rancor Keeper miscardet on a Anakin cardback . He has no hood or stick in his completly sealed buble .

I have been doing a lot of searching and have talk to Joe , who has never seen one like it. So this might be the only one knowen to excist Smile . I'm so happy with the 4 moc's but most with the RK bounce .

And then i'm very sad on Joe's part. Because now he has competition on the tri's Smile

Soren, firstly congrats on the pick ups Smile

When you contacted me about the RK miscard I honestly expected to see some cut and paste repair job but I was pleasantly surprised to see what looks like a genuine miscard!

I can't fault the bubble type for that cardback (Anakin is very common with the small bubble) and the origin doesn't sound at all suspect, one thing is for sure - Anything is possible with Trilogos and from what I can see that RK looks legit to me ! Congrats Very Happy

As for the competition - go away Laughing

Thanks Joe
And thank you for your help and insight

I will try to stay out off your Tri's but they are very very nice as a moc. But give me a Tri Bespin Guard moc and we can call it a truth for a while Very Happy
