Star Wars Return of the Jedi – Gamorrean Guard Kenner Action Figure

   Gamorrean Guards! I love these guys. I’ve had a few in my shop to sell over these past few years, but I NEVER had any when I would 13. I have no idea as to why. They have some great character. While they are not as screen accurate as their more modern Hasbro cousins, they have a quaint charm all their own.

Star Wars Lot of 18 Vintage 5 Modern Action Figures + Case & More

Star Wars Lot of 18 Vintage 5 Modern Kenner Action Figures Case More | eBay.

   Do you ever buy a few lots of action figures just to get one or two of them? What do you do with the rest? Well I am re-selling these guys.

   They come from multiple lots I’ve purchased over the years. They are of varying quality and eras. There are 18 vintage Kenner figures. 2 figures from the 1990’s Power of the Force line and three more modern figures from Hasbro. I have taken some close-up, detailed photos of the more damaged figures. The case, at first glance, is in good condition, but there are some damaged points around the creased areas which is normal on these things… I have 5 now. There is a booklet “wish book” from Empire Strikes Back that has been marked in. The accessories that are included come from the vintage through the modern eras as well. 

 
Some of the highlights of this lot:
1. While the Luke and Vader figures are pretty poor (Luke’s face & Vader’s “neck brace”) they do have their light-sabers even though they are both tip-less.
2. Skiff Guard Lando has NO COO and is in pretty nice condition.
3. The “Wish booklet” is an awesome stroll down memory lane.
4. Force Spirit Obi-Wan Kenobi is pretty cool.

Jabba the Hutt guide on Jedi Business!

Jabba The Hutt Guide, Jabba The Hutt Figures, Jabba The Hutt.

   On Jedi Business, this morning, there is a visual guide up comparing all the Jabba the Hutt playsets released from 1983 through 2010. I think the 1983, the 1999 and the 2010 are the best. The 2010 is the Wal-Mart exclusive that I am looking for (at the right price).

   Here is the last playset I had sold. It found a great home to young man, who received as a birthday gift from his parents. I believe that he was turning 8! How about that… old school collecting for a new generation of Star Wars fans. The instruction were reproductions.

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!
