Essential child hood figure for setting up Luke Jedi v Vader battles. As far as the more boring figures go he’s one of the best sculpts in my opinion. Here’s my Kenner 77a and sun damaged Trilogo MOC.

As evil as they are impressive! :twisted: :lol:

Thanks for sharing! :-)

And here are my two. No carded one to show, but two distinct variants; the darker grey, wide hips, fine sculpt hands, soft sculpt body Palpy on the left, and the lighter grey, narrow hips, soft sculpt hands, fine sculpt body on the right. I've even thrown in the COOs for Lars ;-)

thanks, I love variants and coo, thanks for sharing them with us :wink: If you do not know it then there is a dark and a light stick for the emperor, I learned that a few years ago after comparing my sticks with each other I think it was 50/50 so no one was more rare than the other.

I didn't know there was a cane colour variant, so thanks for letting me know :-). Do you have a side by side comparison picture you could post?

Thanks.

Nice pair! (Ooh, er, Missus, etc.). I really like the Kenner Emperor card for some reason, and it's also great to see one with what looks like a clear bubble. Thanks for sharing :-)

That yellow sun bleached logo really stands out, good that it’s nice and equally faded.

Yeah the bubble on the Jedi card is a bit yellow but not as bad as most. I did spend two years waiting for a descent one.

The Trilogo one is a mess, I still love it though. I’ll look after him now. :lol:

Sure, I have them all out now. I have just take some pictures of my collection for the thread. So here are the sticks :wink:

Not such a good picture, but can you see the right one is shiny black and the left one is black ? if you keep them up to the light then you can see the difference. Maybe you have them both ? :wink:

Agreed, that's a terrific collection, Lars! Thanks for sharing, and thanks too for the side-by-side photo of the canes. I don't think I have the lighter one, so I'll have to keep an eye out for one :-)
