Another tip for those who want to buy vintage figures are the missing accessories that cost you almost as much as the figure by itself or more. Here’s a list of the most expensive accessories.

Vader, Luke, Obiwan double telescoping sabers
Jawa Vinyl cape
Amanaman’s staff
R2D2’s pop-up lightsaber
Carbonite Block
Luke Stormtrooper helmet
General Lando’s cape

Beware of imitations as they’ve been able to replicate some of these with great detail!

I will add the Imperial Snowtrooper Vinyl "half cape".

I don't believe I've ever actually seen the vintage Gamorrean Guard's ax.

Other stuff that gets lost:
Removable Limbs Threepio's bag (not to mention his limbs)
Han Trenchcoat's trenchcoat (some comic shop guy tried to sell me a loose one of these and pass it off as an original 1977 figure):rolleyes:
Some Ewoks came with a shoulder-slung pouch also, not just a cowl, they are: Logray, Teebo, Lumat and Warok

BTW, does anyone know where I can find an ORIGINAL Amanaman staff? No repros. Mine has the bottom half twisted off. Any help would be hot!:cool:

I was pretty intense about keeping all my accessories as a kid. I sometimes hid weapons so my friends would not play with them and lose them.

As a result, I have all the original accessories in nearly perfect condition with the exception of one Leia's blaster and one AT-ST driver blaster - those darn little things were so small that not even I could keep up with them.

Fortunately, even as a kid, I bought extra figs. Especially imperials and gamorean guards.

I haveto say that the piece that everyone forgets about is the Cloud Car Pilots little inter-com thing. It is not that expensive to get one, but most people do forget. :)

2-1B's staff
Any SW arm lightsaber WITH tip attached (not the telescoping ones)
Helmets (i.e. Boushh, Lando Skiff, Luke Trooper)

This brings to mind the two loose vintage Jawas I have sitting on a shelf. Oh how I wish I had kept the capes. In fact I also have an Obi-Wan and Leia both vintage without capes or weapons (Leia). I had left them in storage at my mothers house for years and don't even remember what I did with the accessories.

WHAT WAS I THINKING?

Oh Well...live and learn

Here's an example of an expensive accessory.

Amanaman staff (http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1650759764)

If yours got one, better keep it safe! :D

BB, the staff is actually in pounds, so it is actually more likely to be about $50!

That's exactly what I meant when I started this post.

I was missing Yodas cloth cape for awhile, but I did another one not so long ago!
