Picked up a Death Star Breifing set today at a car boot sale, fully boxed and still sealed. Nice little set.

Got a Chief Chirpa from a local dealer. As much as I don't love Ewoks, this little guy has a ton of character!

Got 3 Saga Collection figures in a lot I bought today. Dud Bolt & Mars Guo, E1 Obi-Wan and Rep Been were all figures I don't really care about. The Podracer Pilots might look cool as part of a diorama, but otherwise meh.

Picked up a carded lushros Dofine from a vintage toy store that I went to today. I have been wanting to visit for a long time. Can cross that one off my list of needs

Got a Sandtrooper (Corporal) and a Firespeeder Pilot today. Firespeeder Pilot will probably be getting a new paintjob to become a spacer of some sort. The Sandtrooper is actually weathered, unlike the 30th Anniversary version, but when I went to out his Dewback prod in his right hand, the thumb broke! A little glue will fix it, but I'm not risking that again!

Back in the 1980s I collected the original 3.75" Kenner vintage figures. I sold all those when I was a teenager, but a month ago the 40th Anniversary Black Series figures caught my imagination again with their vintage-inspired Kenner cardbacks. After a bit of research I discovered that Hasbro had previously released super-articulated 3.75" figures with Kenner cardbacks under the Original Trilogy, Saga and Vintage collections - nostalgia overload!

I realise I'm a bit late to the party (and I'm sad to see that super-articulated 3.75" figures now seem to be a thing of the past) but here are the MOC Vintage Saga Collection figures I picked-up:



Each of these hold particularly fond memories for me, and I love the fact that Hasbro released them in protective Star Cases. Unlike the Kenner figures of my childhood, I won't be opening these!

Got the VTSC Leia Endor today. All the grief it's been given is unfounded in my opinion. The poncho is a bit too dark, but aside from that she's a great figure. I may have paid a tad more than "market value" but considering I haven't seen many of them around and it still cost me less than a Wal*Mart TBS figure at regular price, I can live with it.

Out of interest, what is current market value in the US? From sold listings on eBay it looks like you can still pick up MOC VTSC figures for the original RRP on the other side of the pond!

Finally managed to find Han Solo (Hoth Outfit) at a good price:



Another very nostalgic acquisition for me - this was the very first original Kenner vintage figure I got as a child :)

I'm in Canada and I paid $20 for her. When they're at regular price, the Wal*Mart TBS figures cost more than that after tax. I still think I got a fair deal.

Given the exchange rate that's still a lot less than we have to pay here in the UK.

What was the original RRP of the VTSC/VTAC figures in Canada?

That snowtrooper has got to be the best figure in this range .Good score they are starting to become sought after.
It only took me a few months to pick up my five favourite VTSC/VTAC figures at reasonable prices:

Luke Skywalker: X-wing Pilot
Biker Scout
Han Solo (Hoth Outfit)
Bossk (Bounty Hunter)
Imperial Stormtrooper (Hoth Battle Gear)

Since acquiring these it seems much harder to find them so I think I've been quite lucky.

Picked up a loose Greedo for 6 bucks today. Thinking he'll become either Beedo or a Rodian Jedi.

I have numerous POTF2/POTJ/UGH/30th Anniversary/Saga Legends figures that I'm looking to sell (at reasonable rate) as I'm no longer collecting action figures. Please send me your want list and I'll see what I have and cost of each.
