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.

No problem mate, when we get to the A-wing Fighter then I hope you are ready with some cool pictures :wink:

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 :(
