Great collection to pick up Jason.
I remember going to an antiques fair in Portland a few years back and One lady on a small stall had loads of these all mint and boxed up. I think they were mainly ESB but when you see the artwork on the boxes they are so tempting. I ended up with a sealed Bespin Freezing Chamber she had but she said she collected all the SW stuff when it was released and has had it all in storage for years. I never did get back there again to see what else she had but it was just nice to see all the mint items she had and those Dixie Cups have always been something I felt I should have picked up as well.
You made the right choice getting them when you could though so thanks for sharing.
Thanks for all the great responses fellas! I totally agree that the artwork is stunning and really jumps out at ya. Good call subzero, it does have a similar look to the arcade cabinet especially with the blue. As I said, I was lucky to get them all at once vs. having to track them down each individually. That is the main reason I had held off (plus every time I try to narrow my focus, it ends up just getting broader).
What a find Ian. You got a sealed Bespin Freezing Chamber!! What a find. I would have passed on the cups too if I was in your shoes as those hardly ever come up. I know it was a few years ago, but congrats man!
