Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 5, 2018, Part 2/2

Last item for week 5, the first item from Droids, Jann Tosh. Last year I saw for the first time since the early 90s all episodes of Droids :D
Funny and a great little tv series :lol:

I don't think Droids was sold in denmark so I did not have any Droids items when I was a kid, but I have heard rumors about the A-Wing was sold in denmark :?

Here is a few pictures of my little Jann Tosh collection.

Sorry Lars, much like the Ewoks line, I've never collected Droids toys (apart from the A-Wing ;-)), so I can't help with this one. Hopefully some Droids collectors out there can post some of their Jann Tosh figures.

Never been that interested in the Droids or Ewoks series, but lately I’ve been looking at the MOC art for the Droids and thinking I quite like it, might look nice in my collection. :o

Totally agree, the card art is really nice, particularly on the Droids range.
I also think the “cartoon” ness and colour of these figures make them worth a second look.
I wish that I had bought some back in the 80 90s when dealers couldn’t give them away!
Hindsight is a wonderful thing. :roll:

So do we have 2 new Droids collectors on the forum ? :D I agree I also like the art work on the cards :wink:

I think it was sad that they only made the 1st line of Droids and Ewoks. The 2nd line that never came in production looks much more cool. I have a few of them as custom made and I hope one day I get them all :D

No sorry Lars I will not be collecting them, the prices that these sell for now makes me weep!
I am having enough problems putting my POTF run together!
As already mentioned I remember when dealers couldn’t give these away.
Never say never, but if they keep going up as they have it’s unlikely!

Sorry to read that you will not start a Droids run, but I also understand. Star Wars is becoming expensive. Why I also started a thread about if star wars is only today for the Rich. I would love to start a poch cardback focus, but I do not know where I should get the money from for such a focus :(
