Dixie Cups- Next up..Hammerhead!

Postby Shaky_BobaFett » Tue May 16, 2017 10:56 pm

So I had mention this before but finally got round to checking through my Dixie cups and thought it would be good to share with you all ( or rather those interested) the super cool art work on each of the cups . Now I know there are focus collectors out there who may find this particlerly interesting as there's a few unusual ones here with some great pictures. Please note I'm not selling any of these but rather sharing something vintage that maybe to some ,a first time seeing it and an education as such to what you could add or hunt for !
Any way I'm planning to do this weekly , just for a bit of fun and pick a different one each week ( it may get boring for some but for others I think it's a little vintage treat !)
I'm currently showing the Dixie cups that were first released in the Star Wars eddition ( the first official Star Wars licensed ones I believe ?)
So I'll start of with Luke Farmboy. A few cups in this box have him featured but these 2 stand out. So here we go.... Enjoy!
Cheers ⚒

I have the Han box, but its sealed... never seen the Han Solo cup in the round like that before. I must get an openbox/loose cup to add to my focus.

Was these cups released before or after the movie was ? I ask because the art work for Vader , leia and luke looks movie accurate but Han Solo looks more concept anyone agree ?

I love these!

I've only ever been interested in the figures but lately the guys on Tantive and on the Beyond the Toys FB group have gotten me interested in all of these oddball type collectibles. Think I need to invest in some Luke dixie cups :) Thanks for sharing!

Nice pick ups Dublinjeff! Cheers guys for comments. Will carry on with this now I know I've got a few interested!

Now next up is everyone's favourite lovable droid R2D2. Jawa lovers ( nick :) ) will also be of interest as the picture/ scene chosen here is of R2D2 being captured by them pesky little cloaked jawas ! Great colours as with most of these Dixie cups and the word description on this cup particularly cracks me up. It reads as follow:-
.."R2D2 is a Short Claw-Armed Tripod Robot who speaks only in Electric sounds .." I mean I've never read him described as this before , any of u collectors ? Love this cup and hope u guys do too :D
Hopefully I'll not be so long posting up my next cup

So next up is Walrus-Man . As you can see nice bright colours used and some cool text on the cup. It reads " Walrus-man is just one of several weird and exotic Alien creatures and monsters that are to be found in the Cantina at Mos Eisley" .

So next up is everyone's favourite young hero , Luke Skywalker. This cup is super cool in my opinon as it has the Landspeeder on it. Text reads " was a young farmer until he learned the Power of the Force .This knowledge aided him in his fight against the Evil Empire.
Enjoy
