If i dont comment on your awesome purchace- don't worry- im totally digging this thread at all times and constantly smiling.

Got some stuff today.

Please excuse multiple posts as photobucket sometimes rotates my pictures on this forum.

I put R2-D2 in the shot for scale.

First is a mint SW Program and Ewok book. I would normally post the Ewok book but I know some of you guys love ewoks:

Image

Here is a mint complete collection of ROTJ bookmarks- the only ones released in the vintage era.

Image

Next is a Star Wars Corporation Letterhead from 1975/1976 and a Lucasfilm one from the 1980's

Image

Finally got this guy carded. Getting close to a full set of MOCs

Image

Here is a large ROTJ mobile. Its 3D and a fair size. Displaying this is not going to be easy :)

Image

This is another shop display for ROTJ stationary. Alot bigger than i thought it was going to be. Apparently you attach the carded tape despenser to it.....somehow....

Image

Heres a ROTJ Omni counter stand, Canadian coke display, Return leaflet (to go with my Revenge one), Nestle SW Pendants shop poster, and a SW and ESB Kenner refund leaflets:

Image

and finally- a ROTJ Burger King counter Display. Need the glasses now.

Image

Hope you enjoyed checking it out. Keep all the cool stuff coming. I love it.

As always, some amazing pieces appear when you don't check in for a few weeks. special mentions for Walkie's poster - amazing!, Nick's upgrades - lovely dc and R2, and Stu's Greedo - what a beauty.

Here's the result of a trip to Hereford to see Roundster (and scarifpacific and clarkspieamdchips) - a Canadian Slave 1. Just a snowspeeder needed now for my basic Canada carded run

It's been a bit slow on the acquisition front lately but had a very busy week last week.

First up, Betamax copies of the Dairylea promo videos.

A leaflet given out during screenings of Return Of The Jedi (or maybe the triple bill)

Next up, some boxed goodness. Not the best condition, but good enough for me.

And lastly, found this little fellow alone in a junk shop. Couldn't leave him there all alone for the sake of a couple of quid.

That's how I like them, too. This one is "perfect" (except the the fact that it is graded).
A bit worn up, but with a clear and uncracked bubble. Love it!

Great MOC.
But why would you pay to have it graded?
Beyond me, break it out I say!

No idea why they graded beyond “Hope”.

I think the low grade put people off, when it’s as good a nick as my other cards, as I like them “real”.

Not brave enough to break it out - but it’s lovely and been something I’ve been speaking for a while at a reasonable price.
