Nearly completed the first 79..

Post by 2stripes »

I don't get the "last 17"... there were 79 on cardbacks before the last 15 surely.. Anyway...

Despite buying and selling on and off for approaching 20 years, I've never had a full collection, but this is happening. I still need the following to complete the first 79..

R2D2 Solid Dome
Greedo
Snaggletooth
Leia Bespin
Cloud Car Pilot
Nikto
AT-ST Driver
Prune Face

If you have a one of the above, complete with original accessories, be happy to buy at a decent price.

Then on to the last 15... but only once I've completed this list. I've been really good at not buying a cheapo Anakin after a few beers in fairness to me.

After that I'll enter the realm of Max Rebo, Blue Snags and whether the fact salacious b. crumb didn't sell in a bubble makes it less of a figure than 8D8. :?

Good luck with the rest, not getting any cheaper that’s for sure!

There were 81 on Jedi cardbacks if you include Lumat and Paploo and 15 on POTF cardbacks. 96 altogether. Why they’re known as last 17 I don’t know?!:

It must be something to do with the Jedi 77 back being known as the last set of figures released before POTF.

Just an R2D2 Solid Dome left to track down.. trying to avoid buying one that's trashed and waiting on a decent one to turn up at a reasonable price.

Thanks, I just snapped an R2 up so I'm done and I can do something other than refreshing ebay searches for a while :D .

Its actually the first 77 , for some reason I mentioned the first 79 but I haven't bought Paploo and Lumat. I plan to buy one of the last 17 every now and then.. but my addictive personality might speed things along.

In certainly doesn’t end for most which is one of the best things about this hobby for me.
