With the recent dearth of new figures at retail, I've been fleshing out my vintage collection a little... mainly loose figures, but I did get a loose Cloud Car last month, too. I've gotten into a buying habit with a particular seller who accurately grades his figures, although the $3 shipping he charges per loose figure seems a little steep.
With only 10 vintage figures in my collection, I'm a little unsure which direction I should go. I recently added Chewie, Hoth Han, and a Hoth Rebel Commander, so I was thinking about going along the lines of a Hoth theme for a while: adding Hoth Luke, Hoth Rebel Soldier, AT-AT Driver, and Hoth Stormtrooper. Maybe a boxed laser cannon, too, since they seem to go pretty cheap still.
I did decide not to purchase anything the seller graded less than "C9", admittedly a very subjective rating but one it seems he and I agree on, more often than not. I also decided not to buy any figures with repro weapons, although I may have to go back on that, and acquire the originals later.
Any chance you would want to share the sellers ID? If not I totally understand
I too have been picking up quite a few vintage and selling off a lot of my modern. I had a lot of oldies to start with but most are from my childhood so nicer, complete figures are being added. Heres what Ive picked up in the last month
Big Head Han
Death Star Gunner
Luke Stormtrooper (so white your head would spin)
.....thats a lot more than I thought.......
Next up is Pop up R2
All I need is:
Picked up this supposed prototype POTF display transparency. Well see what it looks like when it gets here.
If anyone has any of the above for sale give me a PM!!
Just bought loose Vintage C-3PO (Removable Limbs), Cloud Car Pilot, and Sensorscope R2-D2. I now have all the loose SW, ESB, and ROTJ Vintage figures, plus the Jabba the Hutt playset. I may decide to get the Rebo band loose, but for now, I'm done with my vintage collection. If I win the lottery I'll buy a loose POTF collection.

Recieved a few over the week. Luke Bespin, R2 sensorscope, Chewie, Squidhead, Bib, Klatuu, Amanaman. Working on a deal for Paploo & Romba, and another for a Dignitary. Waiting for CC Pilot, Luke Poncho and Gamorrean.
This leaves me with 9D9, Warok, and Yak Face for a complete set, and 42 to go for a complete c8-9 set.
Also picked up ATAT Commander, 21-B, Luke Jedi, Biker Scout, and white Bespin Gaurd.
I just got Hoth Han and the guns to complete TIE Pilot and Bespin Han. 3 completed figures in 1 shot!
This next year I'm gonna have to crack down on some of the harder to get figures ie: Stormtrooper Luke, Blue Snaggletooth, last Ewoks, Yakface and them.
