Thank you Daren and all others....And no worreis- I wont get the hothtrooper as that one went to a friend of us some 6 years ago. Same applies to Biker Scout and Prunde face.
The Vader wont be sold as well. So of the 19 that survived (barada was lost), the remaining 14 may become available but Leia and At At Driver such as Tie Pilot and maybe Zuckus are already promised...But hey- still 10 up for grabs.

I will help to broker them so if anyone has some money to burn and needs one of the remaining 10 I can try my best. But please note that these are not just waiting to be sold. It may take some time as the owner not even know the names! They have obviously never seen the movie. One has to send them a picture and then they will check if they have it :-)

Awesome pieces Mike, very good job! I especially like the Fett mold, definately a one-of-a-kind piece. I've been trying to get some of the Mexican molds for years and still can't seem to grab one yet.

I'm just curious, is the current owner of these molds a former employee of the old factory or something? From the way you were talking it sounds like he's had them for a very long time.

Thanks Steven,

the current owner has these since they were sold by "Elektro" company (they did the 1st gens) to him in the late 80's/early 90's .

Thanks, Mike

Hi fett, thanks mate, so far ive picked up 12 figures.

2 tuskans/ darker shades of green
kenner style solo
yellow nien nunb
Brown luke x-wing
Green obi wan
Grey at-at commander
Brown barada green boots
Brown chewie
luke farmboy blue pants
cream leia
vader

In time im going to try and pick up one of every figure, obviously not all the variations lol, just some variations of my favs like the tuskans, of which im still looking for some light/lime green variations.

But the danger is im a kenner variation collector, i love variations lol, but im going to stick with the cheaper polish ones to start with, get a bit of a collection going and see how i feel about them.

They look lovely to me, i love the charm of them, ive been thinking about jumping in to the polish bootlegs for a while now and joeY made me do it with his great prices lol
So i blame Joe lol

cheers

Joe is blamed for most bootleg addiction, but rightly so Smile


I have a couple unarts I'd part with if you're interested.  No fetts though, I can't ever bring myself to sell any.  I'll always blame it on a variation, but I may be a little OCD!

Huge news, for me anyway lol.

Im a snow trooper and a hoth rebel soldier away from completing a full set of unarts, cheers minus the ewoks, and ive amassed plenty of variants too.

Thanks to the top quality guys of TIG ( you know who you are ) who have looked after me to the max, and a few going over and above a sellers obligations, just top shelf guys, im making some great friends as well as deals and without this place it wouldnt be possible, So THANKYOU FRIENDS...:clap: 

As soon as i take some pics after they all arrive and figure out how to put them up, i cant wait to share my collection with you fellow bootleggers.

cheers

Hey John, thanks mate, no those two are easy especially the snowtrooper.

Ive done tonnes of research and made sure i picked up all the harder to get ones when i saw them, none where particularly hard to find, im buying at a good time so i think that helps.

I realise the 2 of the 3 ewoks wont be easy, but they are not on my priority list atm.

Ive got both poker capes, chewie and stormy with the correct capes coming in the mail too, so im really happy.

And ive got about half a set of mexi's too coming cheers 

It wasnt long ago i was expressing my interest in getting into boots to you and look at me go now lol, and im a completist too lol, thats a worry.

cheers mate
