Also picked up this Clipper/Kenner 65A China COO molded face Rebel Commando. Not sealed unfortunately, but figure had been somewhat carefully removed for display at some point. Still displays wonderfully. All parts originally came together. Very pleased to add it to my focus as it’s been very difficult to find Clipper Rebel Commando items

Another awesome Commando 8)

Just got hold of this young lady for my childhood focus. Replaced the cut bubble placeholder that I already had. Had to sell a couple more MOCs to raise the funds, but was worth it ;)

Busted her out of prison and she's looking much happier now.

That’s lovely Andy.
Your right she looks better out of that early style case.
Congratulations.

Amazing charity shop find! I go in one near me every week, seem to find most things apart from vintage Star Wars. Great pick up. As always some very nice pick ups in this thread, really like the comics.
