Star Wars Update

Yesterday I finally got around to adding a few items from my collection. Starting mid summer I finally decided to focus on the vintage mail-away figures. These were figures that you could send in so many proof of purchases, wait 6-8 weeks, and get them free before they were available in stores. They usually consist of a white mailer box, the figure sealed in a baggie, and a catalog. Some of the figures also included a slip of paper about their role in the movie. One in particular of interest is the Admiral Ackbar mailer since it mentions the new movie being Revenge of the Jedi. The title of the movie was changed just a few months before release to Return of the Jedi. I am still seeking out the last two figures which are Boba Fett and 4-LOM.For those interested in seeing the mail-away figures they can be viewed at
