So - general question what are the vintage collection figures so damn expensive for modern figures. The phantom menace ones I am going after are costing an arm and a leg. I think all 15 or so will cost more that the original 50...

It’s taken 20 years to appreciate it though! :roll:
I'm looking at collecting either Ep1 or power of the jedi moc's, love the artwork on both sets, tough choice :D
Ep1 all day long.
Dark black card with splash's of red and Maul in the top corner.
It doesn’t get much better as far as art work is concerned.
IMO :wink:
Think your right :D will start the hunt :lol:

Yet more modern incoming...

Nice set and the figures are so vibrant. Very cool and I think the fake aged card image is cool, although I am not sure entirely needed. All the same I Hope we get more and these as this could be a lovely sub-line...

Well, after working like a complete nut case over the past six months decided August was treat time so checked out some Entertainer stores once a week. Some have already gone to a few collectors, and in the process of doing a few trades with others.


Not pictured is the 6inch Tarkin and Jaina Solo for £5 each from TK maxx, I watched the local lizard(scalper) pick them up and then try to hide them whilst he was clearing the rails of clothes to ebay.... :lol: Wish Tarkin came with a side arm of some sort but ill forgive Hasbro due to the inclusion of a nice medical droid. :P

That’s all of the 2 packs and the first few VC figures.

Nice pick ups monkey, really liking those vc cards. Keep looking at doing a run of these but need to finish off Solo and Rogue one first, kick myself for not picking up a Maul a while back, not sure what I was thinking at the time (ok I clearly wasnt thinking :lol: ). Are you coming across ep1 vc cards often?

I picked up these as well and agree with what you've written. The end of the day these are based on the vintage ones but aren't the same and as i have a reseal set these fit in nicely as something similar but different that i quite like. I don't even mind the massive sticker for some reason although i could have done without the paper sheet but it wasn't a deal breaker in the end for me.

Oddly I'm more looking forward to the other six if they ever get released....it might be as I have more Jumbo versions of the other 6 so want to display these with em.

I thought the rumor for the next wave of Retro figures was ESB focused to fit the 40th anniversary next year:

Han Hoth
Luke Bespin
Lando
Yoda
Boba Fett
Bossk
R2D2 Sensor Scope & C3PO Removable Limbs in a special set (similar to Tarkin from wave 1)

A few modern bits for me.
Firstly two of the five twin packs with bonus pit droid.

And a Freeze Frame viewer.
The viewer is still sealed as are the two freeze frames that came with the viewer and they are still taped to the card insert.
Complete with instructions and in a good condition mailer.

Love the Pit Droid pair - the Maul one is great.

Trouble is, won't you feel compelled to get all of them, i.e. each version of the pit droid for each figure :)

I know if i buy one i will need all of them, so holding off - but they are very cool

I know what you mean, but when it comes to modern I do tend to stick to my guns, and that means one of each figure only.
But, I may only buy the rest with the Pit Droid in one colour...maybe?

Your Ep1 collection is epic by the way!

I hadn't heard that rumour, shame we don't get the next 6 in the first twelve, but heres hoping they do more in the series, I think these first 6 have been popular enough
