How's it going all, I know it's been a long, long time since I posted here and asking a huge favor is not the best way to go about reintroducing oneself, but oh well. Here's my problem. I was/am a huge Action Fleet collector, but I never went into keeping everything boxed. I also didn't have the space to keep all the empty packages, which I kind of regret. Anyways, I have finally got my website up and running again, and one of the main features of my website is detailed archival pictures of my beloved Action Fleet. I have got all my pictures and am slowly posting them up, but one thing I would like to include with each item is a small writeup that includes a description as well as the text from the back of each box, ie: the technical specifications and text blurb from the back (not the bottom that advertises upcoming vehicles). What I need from anyone who is able or willing to help me is either scans or photographs of the box backs for any of the Star Wars vehicles, Battle Packs, and playsets so I can get this information. I don't intend to use any of these pictures on my website unless the contributor wishes me to, and I will give proper credit to the contributor in my writeups. I can't offer much in return, but since all of my items are out of package, I am willing to take high quality pictures from any angle for anyone who wishes them. My website is http://cloneemperor.hey.nu, and my email if you wish to get ahold of me is dan AT cloneemperor DOT hey DOT nu. I will hopefully also be frequenting these forums more than I have been so you can get ahold of me through here as well. Thanks so much for any help I can get.

Dan,

I have everything in your list. I will not have a chance to help with this until after April 17th, but let me know which ones you still need at that time, and I can scan the single vehicle boxbacks, and digicam photograph the larger ones. If I get any free time sooner, I'll try to get some of these for you in advance.

It's always a pleasure to help a fellow AF enthusiast.

That would be just fine. I have a lot of material to work with for my updates for now, especially since the Action Fleet is only one of the sections of my site. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hey, just bringing this back up to see if anyone out there is able to help me at this time. Thanks again in advance.

cloneemporer,
I'll try to make the time to start getting some images to you. Sorry I haven't done so yet. Got our first decent weekend weather for months last weekend, so we were outdoors nearly the whole time. - Swaffy

I understand completely, I just took a couple days off work so I could do my yard work. Thanks a lot.
