There is something very sexy about an ESB Vader. Great MOC! And Ove, that Uzay? Jeez Louise, man! Just drop that right there why don't you amongst our lowly MOC additions! Beautiful acquisition, mate. Your diverse collection is astounding.
I am pleased to finally have a Boba Fett MOC. And it's not even a Toni! This is an interesting one in a number of ways, I think. The price sticker is the best part: "The Toy Box" was part of the KayBee empire. The sticker bears the same product code and price as the more well known KayBee overstock Trilogos, so this Palitoy piece legitimately wears its US price tag with pride! The top label is over an older version of the Toy Box price label, which in itself is interesting. Another interesting aspect is that the card should have been rejected, just as most of the TT versions were rejects: it has the red splat by Chewie on the back and the register is off on the front giving the racetrack and SW text a slightly different look about them. Finally, although there is no waffle pattern on the front of the bubble (wouldn't expect one on the 45c or later) there IS one just detectable on the back of the card. Almost as if the heat seal machines had the waffle pattern on the flat, moving part that's pressed on the back of the card (remember the bubble fit into a hole in the heat seal machine, the figure and weapon dropped in and then the card placed over he top of the lot so the operator only saw the cardback and pressed the plate down on that part).
Anyway, that's all a bit geek. I love it and the history of him. He scored a 50 grade because there's a small split on one of the bubble stems and a couple of creased corners. Couldnt care less. It only meant I was able to get him at a price I was happy with
