Markus inspired me to update my limelight. I've managed to pick up some really nice items in the last 6 months, like the Spanish Tie Fighter, Australian ROTJ Card and the Kenner 12 Back-C with an Australian metric sticker.

Then there are the Ledys..... Yep, its been a big couple of months

That's a super extensive focus collection. The bootlegs are the most impressive for me. You've got the vintage and modern boots represented vader style.

Just curious, which baggie was the toughest to track down?

Very big congrats

Ah, not quite MOC.....sadly. Its actually just a really nice card with the bubble cut neatly away. I've then attached a bubble to a bit of archival plastic (usually used for stamps) and placed it on top and then into a case. As you can see, it looks great and doesn't ruin the cardback either. See the pics below, and thanks to Dax for giving me the idea in the first place.

A bigger thanks to Dax, Will and Mike for helping me get it in the first place.

I've not yet even heard of a MOC example existing, and this is only the second cardback I've ever seen. If nothing else, at least it proves it existed.



Cheers

You have grown the DV collection and it is most impressive!

Im glad you decided to go with the DV tie's, they'll look great along side the rest of the collection.

Looking forward to catching up soon



Thanks for a great limelight.

Bloody Hell Pat! You've clearly been putting in the hard yards on this run, what a mind-blowing array of Vaderness you've got going on, congrats!

I can't believe I didn't think of you when I sold that 65 Nunb cardback to Mike, but thanks Mike for making sure it ended up in the right place :)

Cheers big ears!

Pat,

This is not only an amazing collection, but as far as limelights go, the commentary detailing what each piece is really stands out. Thank you for taking the time to put the collection and then the informative limelight together.
