Latest Vintage Acquisition
« on: May 12, 2006, 09:44:41 PM »

Since this board has been way too quiet the last 2 weeks, I thought I'd try and kick it back into action again.  Perhaps we could use this thread to show off the latest vintage pieces we've acquired.  It could generate some discussion on any number of things.  Anyone want to share?

(Unfortunately, I'm still waiting to pounce on my first Canadian carded Darth Vader, so I have nothing to show.  Yet.  ;))

I'll share.   :party0053:

After a long hunt, I finally acquired the elusive Ewoks Wicket W. Warrick which ended my hunt for my Droids & Ewoks series.



Sise Fromm is the only loose one but in time I will get him carded.

The carded Droids Boba Fett & of course the very elusive Vlix are not a biggy to me. Down the road... will see.  ;)

Impressive. Very impressive. I have been toying with the idea of starting to collect the Droids line as the end is in sight with me only needing a few of the last 17 to finish my vintage collection. I don't remember much of the cartoon from when I was a little guy and truthfully own the Droids DVD's but have yet to open them. But man seeing that pic.......hmmmmm I wonder what they are worth on eBay? :D

I recently got in the following from a trade/purchase with someone on here.

I don't 100% own them yet as I'm still owed some money.  :confused0024:
Can't 100% say they ARE mine yet.... just in case. ;-)

Anyway, what I got in my end of the deal was the following:

Canadian Carded ESB Fett w/ a Special Offer on it
Sealed Boba Fett Underoos
12" Vintage Loose Boba Fett - Complete with repaired cape.

Want pics? Hit here and scroll through for my toy room pics. ;-)

Or.... click the thumbnails below:
(This is ACTUALLY how my shelf looks when I walk in the room!)

Enjoy!
Mike

Youmean like this one?  :)



Vlix, nice set.  I still need a loose Wicket to finish my Ewoks off, and a handful of loose and carded Droids.

Obi-Roy, Droids and Ewoks figures are on the rise, and some, like Sise Fromm, are getting lots more coin than many ROTJ carded figures, and even some ESB ones too.  Crossover figures like the droids and especially Fett are getting crazy.  (A Fett can go over $1000 depending on condition).

Hey Ian, for sure I see that the Droids and Ewoks are on the rise. A quick eBay search got me a lot of figures but some of the pricing was very surprising. I guess supply and demand really does dictate prices. Still, some Droids and Ewoks carded figures would look great in my cabinet...........

Great run on those figures Dale!  How long has it taken you to get your hands on all those carded Ewoks and Droids figures?



That 12" vintage Fett looks to be in great shape.  Nice!  I think the Fett is one of the best looking vintage 12" (besides Vader, naturally ;)).


Underoos - I'm loving that packaging.  I'm pretty sure that's the first time I've seen them.  Too cool!

That's a thing of beauty Ian!  When did you get David Prowse to sign that?  C3?


Great stuff guys!

Pfffft....Droids and Ewoks suck. I don't know anyone who likes that stuff.  :tongue0024:

And Ian...you've got to stop showing off that Vader. It makes me cringe every time i see it! LOL...

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.

I did manage to get this beauty off eBay for an absolute steal a few weeks back:
http://threads.rebelscum.com/photogallery/showphoto.php/photo/2430/cat/500/ppuser/2611

Cels from the first 8 Droids episodes are incredibly hard to find so needless to say i was pleased to get a multi-layered cel with handpainted background and foreground featuring the main character from the 2nd story arc. ;)

Well ... I had this little goal of having a carded version of every vintage Leia figure (not teeny tiny variations, just main figs).  I have Princess Leia (white) on SW 12 and ESB backs (one of those Canadian Toy Fair versions), Bespin Leia, Leia Combat Poncho, and Leia Boushh.  And here is the last one (still in the mail!):

http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6055143998&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&rd=1

Ok .. so it's not perfect .. I liked the price!

hmm .. maybe I'll get one of these signed when Carrie Fisher comes to SFX 2006!!

That's a thing of beauty Ian!  When did you get David Prowse to sign that?  C3?

Actually, it was at C2.  Created a bit of a stir, because at first Prowse refused to sign it, saying it was too valuable of a piece.  I told him then, and still feel now, that it is MY item, and I am NEVER going to resell it.  It made my fave SW item that much more meaningful to me personally, and even if we had a house fire - I would run to rescue this item.  If one day came and I did have to sell everything, this would be the last item I would ever part with.

Ever since, it has been horrifying people like Shane (btw Shane, it's you I was thinking of when I posted the pic again  :) ). 

I'm currently moving my entire collection to another room which is slightly bigger - I think I'll take pics of all my autographed vintage as I move them.   They include 12-backs signed by Carrie Fisher and Peter Mayhew, and a Tusken signed by the late Peter Diamond, not to mention my gem mint ESB Fett by Jeremy Bulloch. :)

Nice pics, guys.

I am a big fan of the droids/ewoks cartoon-style figures, and hope to match your collection in the near future, Vlix... :)`

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