As always, nice stuff everyone!
Nice Vader Tri-Logo! And nice Dignitary!
I feared getting some of my vehicles back would ignite another bug and it has a little.
I got a few pieces from my original Death Star Playset with most recently the trash compactor but I know I will never get all of it back.
It was my favorite set as a kid so I wanted to get another.
So I picked this up for a good price and in awesome shape!
The rope swing is from my childhood which was found tucked inside my elevator shaft!
Dianoga is mine too that I picked up a while ago.
Yes, original foam that I fear looking at let alone touching!
So all assembled and complete:
I added repro stickers I printed to the elevator shaft and retractable bridge, but the detention level terminal stickers and tractor beam controls are all original.
My goal is to clean up my original parts and swap them out so it will be a hybrid of mine and this one.
What I could get my hands on the other day - DIRTY!
I know I have the retractable bridge holder part somewhere and the gun level and very top level pieces in the closet.
I doubt I'll find struts or the cardboard or gun, but I will be very happy with the floors and elevator shaft being mine in the end.
And what I found out to be neat is there are two molds for the trash compactor.
The pins that hold the door on were originally longer (I assume originally) and then got short.
I have three compactors and only my childhood has the long ones.
The change most like was made so the pins didn't snap when you remove the door - which I did to my long pinned one when I was cleaning mine.
You can see on the right side the longer pins and the right pin is broke and glued back on. Fucntions fine but ticks me off to no f#$%^&ing end!
Anyway... very cool to have and looks cooler than I remember.
I might even try to track down a half-way decent original box to store it in.
And I already posted this in the Ledy thread to make sure it's legit, so real quick, here's a decent shape Ledy CCP with cardback! One of the few Ledys outside Leia that I have wanted. Love those boots and gloves!!! No accessories, but that's fine for me for now.

He has no neck This 'phenomenon' can be found on other figures ie. Leia Boushh (same CoO)

I just noticed this on the Ledy CCP when I was taking pics:
I don't see much, if any height difference, but it is funny that the Ledy has no neck. Looks weird now that I notice it.
OH and no trips to my pops this weekend... I hope this weekend to find out what is in store next!
