My Newest Kenner Star Wars Acquisition!

Star Wars Kenner (one BSG Starbuck too)

   Here are my new, vintage, Kenner Star Wars action figures lot. All in really nice condition but no weapons. I do have some extra weapons for some of them though. The figures with the cloth and plastic accouterments blew me away when I first saw them I did NOT expect them all to be in that awesome of condition! I believe I am going to keep Admiral Ackbar. I can still remember sending the blue & white General Mills proof of purchases away and receiving him by post. Great times. The extra Starbuck, from Battlestar Galactica is a bonus figure and since I’ve already sold my last one, this one will be easy to replace.

   The case they came in is in pretty good condition but I already have two, or three, more of the same version as it is. I’ll be posting these guys this month on Etsy and maybe a few will go into an Ebay lot I am building. The Gamorean Guard is wanting to stay with me too, we’ll see 😉

Original Kenner Figures: They are still out there…

   Last Sunday I went down to my local Swap-Meet and found these guys waiting to come home with me. They are not in the best shape but I never pass up these vintage figures (unless somebody over charges for them) when I find them. Luke’s face is mangled and R2 is in bad condition. The only bonus with Luke is that he has a lightsaber, all be it tip-less  and his body is in great condition. I believe the R2 is an “Early Bird” version (darker blue on the dome). Lando is incomplete but in nice condition… he also has no COO (Country Of Origin) stamped on him. I believe that this is my first figure with no COO 🙂

   Occasional finds like this keep me going. I also found a 1995 Gamorean Guard, no ax  but he was unavailable for this photo due to scheduling issues. He is currently guard one of my, personal, Star Wars shelves.

   May the 4th be with you!

A Quick Glimps of a Few of My Finds Today

   I found a lot of five “Spirit of Obi-Wan Kenobi” action figures locally today. Each has its own mail-away box. The one I took out of the box doesn’t have the paper insert and is, obviously  not sealed in a bag like the other four. I also picked up some 1984 Olympic Tins by McDonald’s and three Star Trek RPG campaign modules from 1984 – 1985.

   I think I shall be keeping the one that came without the sealed bag and has the crushed box.
