    Picked Up Childhood Collection This Weekend

    It doesn't happen very often, but when it does I am very happy. This is a collection of items picked up from someone I know where these have been in his family's basement for years and years. There was a mixture of Star Wars and GI Joe. Notable items found, oddly a pristine R2 with pop up saber (most figures are real rough), a nice Skiff, an Ewok Village, a Rebel Transport, mint Amanaman with staff, etc.

    Man great treasure trove, sail barge looks great, you can pick up a new rail for that, and the r2 pop ups a great score, they are getting real hard to find with the real saber for a decent price, lots of other great stuff too, congrats bro, great score, enjoy.

    Thanks guys, appreciate it! I was looking for the two parts to the Sail Barge and they are expensive. Silly me I didn't scoure the bottom of boxes and storage containers he had, so when I go help him work on completing his Falcon he is going to let me look for more stuff. Very, very exciting for me, I felt like a little kid.
