Really tasty Hoth Stormtrooper ^

Today I've bagged a loose Yak Face, Blue Snag, a UKG 85 Taiwan Fett, and an AFA 75 MOC R2-D2, so it's been a good day.
Cheers,

Michael.

Nice one on the Pali Trooper. Would have been interested myself if I had the funds.

Picked up a few long wanted items this last month.

First, is a store display header for the Drawing Board line of party items for ROTJ. I have vague memories of a display near the entrance of the local TRU when I was a kid for the ROTJ party items, but had never seen a display for them. I either really wanted a ROTJ birthday party or just loved the duel art. :) It was 3 years ago when I finally saw one of these headers that another collector owned and I finally found one for sale about a month ago. Now, I've got to load up on some of the ROTJ party pieces that go with it.

Image

2nd, are two Lando coin pieces. The left is the frosted Lando prototype coin which was an idea being pitched to help make the details more pronounced on the coins. It is assumed this was not done because it requires striking the coin blank twice for this effect, which would in turn double the time to produce each coin. The one on the right is a variant on the production coin which has some different positioning of the stars and text. Based on some information from another collector, there are 3 different dies used for the Lando coins, so 3 produced variants exist like this.

Some great pick ups as usual - loving that display Shawn

This is something a bit different - and unlike most of my posts in here - not MOC!

I saw it while trawling through eBay the other day - I probably over paid a bit but ever since I had the chance to look through Chris G's amazing collection and see some of the paperwork connected with the toys then I have been inspired to find some myself

Image

So this actually came from someone that worked for a company selling masks and novelties - Don Post had the contract to make the Star Wars masks and this was their promotional material for the new range

So you have the intro letter from Don Post

Image

The reservation form for ROTJ flyers

Image

A letter from Lucasfilm introducing the movie

Image

And then a colour matte and a black and white glossy picture of the masks together with the prices

Image
Image

Apparently they were told not to leave them behind as only a limited run was done

I think that they look really cool and at some point will try and add some of the masks into my collection to go with this
"I'll probably be broke and homeless but I'll have a hell of a collection!"
