Well done, they look great together :). Are you aware that the painted knee, unpainted dart version also comes in the same dark yellow paint as the other three you have? I believe (although am happy to be corrected) that the 4 dark yellow paint Fetts are the PBP versions, whereas the lighter yellow paint ones are the tri-logo versions. You appear to have 3 PBP Fetts and one Tri-logo, which is still excellent, so well done!

Thanks they look real nice on display. I actually didn't know that about the yellow paint :lol: to be fair I never usually pay attention to what origin the figures are such as PBP Palitoy or Kenner or anybody else, so my knowledge about that is very limited. I just know these are all classed as 'tri Fett's' but I am aware of the fact that not all light Fett's are actually trilogo like a lot of people call them just because it's light ( including myself ). But now I know what these actually are now so thanks! :)

A easy and great way to display them, all lined up looks awesome. It wouldn't be that hard to add some LED lighting for them shining up from the feet (giving myself a project idea :) )
Hooch, somehow you always make ewoks look cool 8)

I actually thought of doing that, maybe something with just a single LED for some ambient lighting and a 9V battery and switch. I'm even thinking about printing out a trilogo logo and sticking it over the back on the inside as a little backdrop.

Maybe even this could work, i'd have to block off the light to the front though with a black plastic strip so the LED's aren't visible from the front...

After a bit of a hiatus, I thought I’d share my set of Star Wars Play-Doh action sets. I had the SW and ESB versions as a kid, the SW version being one of the earliest SW toys I had. Never did have the ROTJ version, but recently found this one for a great price and the box is still sealed!

Another step in trying to obtain SW toys from my past.

Hope everyone has a great Christmas Holiday.
