    Info needed on figure rack Vader bust w/light-up eyes

    http://theswca.com/images-store/dvbust.jpg

    I clearly remember this from the biggest toy store in my town here in Norway about 30 years ago, standing atop the figure rack (the bust that is, not me and man would it look good on my shelf today, but did it ever pop up on sale on eBay or any other forum? Any input appreciated!

    The Vader bust pops up from time to time. The originals have the red eyes applied, as well
    as the "STAR WARS" stylized sticker on the front. The internals are fairly simple, just a single
    bulb socket and wires/switch. The reason I say "original" is that the molds were used to create fresh
    copies, and those are found with the eye holes/lenses still intact, no sticker, and no elec.
    internals.
    The complete display rack is very rare; I don't think I've ever seen a complete example for sale
    openly. The rack has a bottom wire bin, and an additional wire brochure/pamphlet holder on the
    side. With the way displays have been pricing lately, I would put a complete example at around
    $2k-3k/ The bust, if as original, could go for $700usd if in minty shape

    Btw are there any images online of the whole display rack that the Vader bust sat atop of?
    I vaguely recall how it looked but old now am I, and on me my memory play tricks, yes...
    Cheers,
