Finally added this to my Play-Doh set collection. I hadn’t seen many come up for awhile, then this sealed one showed up on EBay. Threw out an offer and to my surprise it was excepted!

Cool Play-Doh set, I have fond memories of bringing back a set of fresh tubs of Play-Doh from Toys R Us in the 80's, I used to love the smell of Play-Doh! :D

If I knew there were Star Wars sets back then i'd have been all over it.
You don't own your toys, you only borrow them until you sell them or die!

search ebay for brown hair LFB and more than likely it will be the common as muck olive hair.

how ever sometimes it wont be.

this is the reddish brown LFB with a wobbly head and patchy hair paint which is very common for this variant. the rest of the figure is in decent nick.
