The large black blocky gun on the left is MOTU ( Modulok I think)

Hoth backpacks, Skiff Guard weapons (inc. broken example), Imperial Rifle (Hoth / Dengar), 4-LOM rifle, Rebel Commando weapon, Leia Boushh disguise weapon and Rebel Rifle (Rebel Commando / Luke Skywalker Hoth variant)...think that is everything...
I find your lack of faith disturbing

If there is anything that looks suspect that's not starwars related let me know and I can get better pictures up if needed thanks.

Cheers does everything else look good before I see if they float! What's that little red item from? and that really small blue blaster?
And another question guys the yoda figure in one of the first pictures at the start of this thread. He has no snake does any colour matter? Or do I need a certain colour for which ever figure I have?

Ok guys I have put them in a bowl of water and 2 have sunk! I pushed them in and they all float to top. Is this a good sign they are all original?
I have took another picture of the rest. Is that belt also A-Team? It looks familiar from memory.

Thanks again Michael :) excuse me if this is another stupid question :?
The Hoth backpacks should they also float? 2 weapons have sunk so I presume they are repro? I will also check that link you sent me to be sure.
So is the general rule of thumb for a starting point on everything is to do the float test first?
These my seen annoying or stupid questions but I am new to all this but willing to learn :D

No such thing as a daft question bud :wink:

The float test has always been pretty good in the past, but there are a lot of repros out there now that float as well

If you use the search function on the forum there are lots of posts on float test, and using the TIG guide helps.
If there are any you have doubts about take close up pics, and tge experts on here will chip in mate

Great help Michael i hope your in this for the long run! and the rest of the guys :D
This is some of the bits we need to go through!
As I said I have kept buying over the years and only now have started to go through it all. Fingers crossed we find a little gem or 2 :)
I got some of this out tonight to get a picture. The wife will crack up if she knows what I am at :lol: :lol:

I know others have replied, but I thought I'd try and be more specific, and as was said, no question is a bad question, especially for someone eager to learn.

Two top items are Hoth backpacks. Don't know if they float, but they are not valuable at all and to the best of my knowledge have never been reproduced.

Directly below that is one of 2 skiff pikes in the pic (the other is pinched and bent). They go with Klaatu, Weequay, and Lando Skiff.

Dead centre, that small black piece I'm not 100% sure on, but looks to be the gun from a speeder bike.

To the left is not SW (the MOTU suggestions sounds about right though).

Far right is a rifle for Snowtrooper and Dengar.

Next to that rifle is the long rifle for Leia Boushh.

Left side is a broken rifle for Rebel Commando.

Just to the right of that is a rifle for 4-LOM (renamed Zuckuss in the modern era).

Last piece is a rifle for Luke Hoth/Rebel Commander.

Cape at the top is Han Trenchcoat.

To the left is the chestplate for 4-LOM.

Directly below the Han cape is a piece from the Millennium Falcon that holds the Jedi Training Ball. To the right of that is a belt that looks like Leia Endor. Luke Endor has a similar one.

Next to the A-Team rifle is a tool from the Vehicle Maintenance Energizer mini-rig.

Not sure what that white piece is under the backpack strap.

The blue packpack was released in the modern era with Yoda. I'm blanking on if they made a vintage blue one.

The very long brown piece is from the Dagobah Playset (the hook holds a figure to simulate Force levitating action).

Under the Snowtrooper rifle on the left is the coat for 4-LOM, meaning you have all the accessories to complete that figure. ;)

The rifle under that which looks like a Snowtrooper rifle belongs to IG-88. Not sure what the piece is to the immediate right of it.

To the right of those, is a standard Imperial blaster. It appears to be from the first 12 due to color.

To the right of that is an AT-AT Driver rifle.

Last piece is a prisoner piece from the Imperial Troop Transport I believe.

Second picture.....

Top left looks like amodern Obi-Wan cape.

Next to that is Bib Fortuna's cape.

To the right is Prune Face's cape.

To the right of that is a gas mask from the Hoth Survival pack mailaway/Rebel Transport.

Cape on the far left is Luke Jedi.

Not sure on that large black piece next to Luke's cape. I think it's from a vehicle, but my mind is playing tricks on me.

Silver piece to the right of that is another tool from the VME.

Below that to the left is a speeder bike flap.

To the right of that flap is a gun from Imperial Gunner/A-Wing Pilot, and is expensive if real.

Same gun but blue below the flap is for B-Wing Pilot/Leia Endor/AT-ST Driver.

Below that is a black palace blaster for Lando General or Luke Endor, and is also expensive if real.

The helmet is for Leia Endor.

Bottom silver piece is another tool for the VME.

All other pieces at the bottom ofthe pic I have no clue. Not SW as far as I know.
