Show of your truly rare items

Postby Cardbackkid » Sun Aug 12, 2018 10:31 pm

Hello everyone , I’ve been wanting to start this thread for a while now so here it goes .... so I thought it would be good to have a thread where people can show of there rare items they own and I mean actually rare items and not something that’s just high value and desirable like for example a 12 back luke where as if you have a chunk of cash you can pretty much find one within 48 hours on either eBay or a FB group I’m talking RARE as in something you could be looking for months , years even decades , you can post anything from figures , mocs , gimcrack , props ect .

I’ll start by sharing this pop up book from Bandi it’s not a worth a ton of money but it’s definitely a hard piece of vintage Star Wars to find .

So please feel free to show your rare items on this thread and I can’t wait to see what you guys have got out there :D

I don’t own anything rare, just wanted to say that that pop up book is fantastic, love the Japanese text!
I would like to own that myself.

Again, this isn't truly expensive but it's a hard piece to find.
In keeping with your '3PO theme :wink:

I have numerous one of a kinds I could offer but I thought these were the finer examples.

First up is my Trilogo Spanish Bubble Amanaman.

During the last four years or so whilst researching every format and keeping my eyes on the beastie for a constant 3 years of that I have only been able to observe 5 maybe 6. This includes past forum posts, limelight's, auction sales etc. I truly do believe him to be a rare item.

Next up is one of my Palitoy Staff Shop Carrier Bags

I was fortunate to be able to acquire six of these in total. I took them to Celebration London and showed them around and not one collector was familiar with them. I sold one through Vectis which made several newspaper snippets due to the sum it achieved. Since then a further two have been offered through Vectis, so the sample size to date is 8 as far as I am aware.

The following three items are not Star wars items but they are more of a tedious linked item as they are Palitoy warehouse construction pieces. All three are unique.

The first one is of the Polaroids my Granddad took that captured the groundwork's commencing when the 1500 piles were driven into the ground.

The bottom right image is of Frank Manning, Plaitoys Director of Distribution who is facing the camera.

This next one is of the Architects impression of the completed warehouse.

This was of course in the days before computer generated design.

The final piece is the Palitoy Champagne.

Palitoy champagne??, iv'e got some trilogo Stella if you wanna do a swap? :lol:

Some cool unique items so far.

Here's mine, the legendary Lili Ledy Jawa which I bought off that scumbag ebay scammer for a good price, where I made him wait almost a month to get his money released for it, that opportunity alone was also quite rare. 8) :lol:

I have a sealed West End Games Assault on Hoth game which is easy to find open but sealed was pretty tough, although that is probably far from a true rarity :lol:

Great items here so far. The Amanaman MOC is amazing ... so are the other items like the TriLogo Leia, LL Jawa ans so on.
The Palitoy items are priceless. Pure Vintage-collecting history.
Can't wait to see more ... great thread cardback kid.

Here's my rare item I want to share.
It's a negative of the AT-ST, used to produce the alternate photo art of the trilogo AT-ST Driver.
Always wanted to get my hands on a pre production item, but these are hard find (and paid), as you all now.
This one popped up on ebay in a buy-it-now auction ... € 60 (£ 53) :D
