I guess once completed I'll find other avenues to start on, Droids series and more.

    I'm close. I still need a battle damaged X-Wing, both Troop Transports and a couple of the Sears cardboard playsets. I'm just glad I bought most of my figures back in the early 90's, although I bought them all localy, it looks like it would be alot easier now.

    Got my Luke Stormtrooper, Imperial Gunner, R2 w/ pop-up Saber and Yak Face in the mail today. So that's it! My collection of the 15 vintage POTF figures is complete!

    I'll post photos later on.

    Congrats! The feeling you get from getting all the POTF figures is nearly as good the feeling you'll get once you've gotten all the vintage figures. One thing that will keep you motived is the knowledge that the rest will be cheaper.

    Thanks guys, it's pretty awesome as long as I don't think too much about all the money I've spent in the last month.

    Here're a few standard photos of the figures. I guess I need to get these ones out of my system, then I can start getting some more creative ones taken.

    The first one is just the last 15 POTF figures in the order that they showed up in the "Collect all 93" photo from the Planetary Map (without those posers Paploo and Lumat, of course).

    The second photo is all my vintage figures, duplicates and all. You can see that I've acquired multiples of a few of the POTF guys. And no, I don't need three Amanamans, one's a 'beater' figure the other two are perfect, but I'll probably end up trading one to my brother.

    The third photo is just another POTF group shot.

    Actually, I've decided to army-build vintage Amanamans. My collection will be the pride of the homeless shelter.



    My brother has expressed interest in one of the C-9.5 Amanamans. If he decides he doesn't want it, then I'll send you a PM. I'm pretty sure you don't want the C-6 "beater" Amanaman.

    Just won this today (technically yesterday):

    120226156192

    It's an unopened vintage A-Wing in what looks to be a very nice box. I won it for $457 which I think is pretty good for an unopened one of these. I was willing to go up to $650.

    The tape looks pretty clean from the photos too. I've bought "sealed" vintage vehicles before where the box hadn't technically been opened, but the tape was so dried out that the box was pretty much aging itself open.

    Now I just have to wait for this to arrive and hope that there was nothing left out in the item description. Given the guy's feedback, though, I don't think I have any reason to expect a problem.

    I think this is it for me on vintage items for a while. It's been a fun ride, but I think I better quit now while I can still pay my rent.

    You can use the boxes from your MIB stuff to create a rent-free sci-fi house, BB. Hint: Keep the plastic bags as protection from the elements.
