I recently added a few nice Canadian examples to my collection. All three are in beautiful shape - certainly the nicest ones in my collection.

Canadian R2-D2 12 Back-A

Canadian Leia Organa (Bespin Gown) ESB 31 Back

Canadian Logray 77 Back (Thanks to Jim McCallum - now I only have one CDN Ewok left to go)

Clear bubbles, nice cards, unpunched.  Those are beauties.

Not too much SW stuff new on my end these days actually, it's all been GI Joe. I finally landed a little something i never, ever thought i'd land and should have it in a couple weeks/ I'll post some pics of it then.

Ok, so it's been a little longer than two weeks but i finally have gotten around to uploading pics of this little score.

Straight from the annals of obscurity, i present a complete set of Dunkin Droids and Ewoks mini-figures from Spain: http://www.tattoosandtoys.com/images_yours/DunkinSet01.jpg

And yes, the man himself was included:

 http://www.tattoosandtoys.com/images_yours/DunkinThallOrange.jpg

Granted, i still need to get the Thall in green, blue and yellow but just having one is rare enough.

I really lucked into this set, as trying to put one together piecemeal is literally, an impossible task. Why? Because these were originally sold inside cupcakes from a company called Panrico in Spain and very few have even been found there. Some lucky guy in California managed to find a sample envelope sent from Dunkin to LFL at one of the charity sales. There were full sets of each colour as well as a couple extra sets in the envelope and i was able to get this orange set from him, for a pretty hefty price.

To find a complete set like that has got to be one of your 'finds of the century'.  :cool0037:

So you finally got them eh? Very nice! And to have gotten a complete set in one shot was really lucky too. I have only seen one or two individual figures here and there but I have never seen a Thall for sale by itself. You must be on cloud nine. Congrats!

I just picked up these two rather hard-to-find vehicles lately for what I think was a decent price.  Mind you, the cards are really beat up, but the toys themselves are still in mint shape.  I am happy to give them a decent home.

Nice looking vader. Is the crease the only marks on the card?

Yep.... well... that and the dent in the top of the bubble.... and the Woolco price tag.... But besides that  -  YEP! :-)

Problem is, the cape is over the saber and there's no way to move it. That means there's no way to tell if it's a Telescoping saber or normal (back pic would promote telescoping).

I'm not at the 'nuts' stage yet...... I know what I paid for it, and I'm happy withit even if it's not a TS vader.

Originally I gave a buddy of mine 'first refusal' - told him he could just pay me back what I paid and it would be his....... he wants an ESB one more?!  :speechless-smiley-004:
