I went to a massive flea market today and actually found a vintage Greedo for $1, which I never had as a kid, so I thought it would make a nice addition to my loose collection, especially since its in great condition. I'm planning on tracking down Walrusman and Hammerhead as well to get the memorable aliens that Hasbro never produced in these Kenner outfits.

Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised by the condition, I figured most vintage toys at a flea market would be banged up. Also picked up one of my favorite aliens as a kid - Ree Yees! The lady selling them was leaving and said - everything is $1.

Thanks, it certainly made me excited about picking up vintage figures again! Now I'm going to try to track down another ROTJ favorite - Squidhead. I imagine that one might be difficult to find complete though.

I recently picked up this original sketch by ILMs Joe Johnston. This was created and used during the production of The Empire Strikes Back.

Here is another ESB sketch also used during production. This drawing is attributed to Nilo Rodis Jamero.

Picked up a loose Weequay at a flea market on Saturday for $1. I couldn't leave him there, jumbled in with Ninja Turtles.

I've given him and the weapon a good cleaning since this pic. He came a little dusty. Overall not a bad piece. Decent boot wear but overall nice.

These beauties ran me 48 cents for the pair at a yard sale that I went to on a whim. 25 cents for the falcon and 23 cents for the snowspeeder (it was a quarter but I had literally no hard cash on me, my offer of 23 cents was accepted ;)). By that rationale if they weren't covered in filth and mouse droppings and had all the parts they were like, 3 bucks each.

Still, couldn't walk away from them. They're staying in the garage till I get a chance to give them a good scrub down.

Open bubble and thumb is hiding a nasty paper rip. Still very happy as it's one of the coolest cards around, imho.

This one isn't Star Wars but it's From The Black Hole by Disney and one of the hardest to get. It's missing some fingers but I hope I can remedy that with a new arm. He wasn't cheap











I have a cape for Leia incoming and I had to buy a headless Leia to get it






If anyone can help with weapons for any of these figures please PM me.

That is such an odd pairing of characters! Why wouldn't they put some other Jabba Palace figure in there? Oh well, miss those days.

Just got the neatest Han Solo off eBay from a fellow collector in Germany. Han Solo in Carbonite... with FACTORY EYEBROWS??? I never knew any were released with eyebrows. He always has that "eyes wide open and surprised" look in all the other figs of this type I've seen. Anyway, I was happy to add him to my collection and wanted to share him here.

I got a newbie too. I have been thinking about grading but I like being able to hold them outside the acrylic.

I didn't take a picture because, y'know, it doesn't really need one. But I recently scored a complete land of the Jawas base and escape pod (no backdrop Sandcrawler which is fine, because just these parts are what I was after) for $20 shipped. The escape pod is one of those things I owned once, like 25 years ago when I first got in to collecting and for some reason just hadn't reacquired until now. What a big stupid grin I had on my face when I opened it.
