Been a while since I've shown off new purchases so here are some of my recent acquisitions.

2 Hoth Stormies on the left. Bought from different sellers.

EV-9D9, the second last of the last 17 I needed.

My first and only ESB carded figure, apart from the hole punched next to the hanger a very nice addition.

An ESB boxed Radar Laser Canon with unapplied stickers, insert, instructions and catalogue.
AFA 85 Walrusman picked up at a steal.

Greg: Great to see you posting here again after a while. cheers
And congrats finishing the last 17. That Yak looks very mint!

Jesse: Nice Canadian cardbacks. I wonder why Kenner Canada did not make these cards completely bilingual. I mean, the only french text on the front is "a partir de 4 ans". unsure

AJ: Wow, great Ledy haul of cardbacks. cheers I think Adolfo wrote once that the Leia Bespin is one of the most rare Ledy MOCs around. Is that the same for the cardback?

Paul: Great Palitoty cardback and mask for your focus collection. Very Happy

not sure, I'm certainly glad I have her Smile
I think of the 19 I still need, the 'key' characters are going to be the more difficult/expensive to aquire ie. Vader, Jawa, C3PO, R2, Chewy & Fett
I've been working on this run for quite a few years now & concede it will be a few years from completion- certainly all part of the fun.

Woah, those Ledy cardbacks are fantastic, AJ, congrats on tracking those down! cheers

The Ben Cooper costume is pretty cool, Artoo, though I gotta say it's kinda creepy too with the eye holes. cyclops

Just a small pick-up this afternoon. It's been played with and the baggies have been opened. No instruction sheets.

Nice finds everyone! LL cardbacks, 1978 R2-D2, Yak Face for a Last 17 completion and the Jabba MIB :clap:

Forgot to mention John's Yoda/Snaggletooth :Drool:

It's been a while since I've had success on Craigslist up until this afternoon. Buried in a basement pile of POTF2 junk, 25 minutes from my place were these 3 pieces. Guy was very fair on price, My only wishes were that he had more and didn't cut the price tag out of the Snowspeeder card... :scratch:

Thanks for the comps on the Ben Cooper lads Cool

The costume and mask are both in excellent shape, especially the mask which are known to be very fragile. The plastic costume still has that lovely 70s/80s vinyl smell Smile

More pics here of the box and contents for anyone interested: TIG World Of Odd - Costumes & masks

Sulaiman - good luck hunting down the Fett version, I'll let you know if I spot one.


Clint - congrats on the Canadian Jabba set, great box version :Drool:

Mike - congrats on the Craiglist find cheers that's still a very nice snowspeeder despite the clipped price tag Cool

I sent this info about the French text on the Canadian card backs to Marco yesterday and he ask me to post it for everyone to read. Very Happy

Just to follow up on your question about the french text on the Canadian card backs. Here is what I found in my copy of Irwin Toys - The Canadian Star Wars Connection book. Sorry for the scans.
Hope this helps a little bit.

Great Canadian Jabba set, Clint. I think at least the Jabba baggie came always opened.
And thanks for posting that info on the Canadian cards. Very Happy

Nice Craigslist find, Mike! The Cloud Car Pilot MOC is a great piece. Very Happy

My first MISB vehicle. Love it, now I just need to order an acrylic case to protect it. Think I may start a B-Wing focus. Anyone know how many card variations there are on the B-Wing Pilot? Or where I can find a list?
