Another great find Lars

Yoda looks Ledy from the pic, darker green, darker black PAC man eyes, is it a no coo?

But I have noticed a difference when I compared it with another ledy that I have. On this one I have found in this lot the mould circle on the small pouch on the belt is not deep, but I guess it has something to do with how much plastic they used or how often they cleaned the mould :?

Today I got my first loft find in 2020. I bought this 2 boxes from an old lady in copenhagen. She told me she was selling it for her son and he was my age. Looks like he did not had much star wars toy because there was no figures only this 2 boxes with some old danish price stickers on them, I don't think there have been played a lot with them they look mint except the stickers has gone loose on the radar but that could be age. She did not want very much for them so I got them cheap about £13. But to my big surprise she also had 2 12 size star wars dolls from her son. Han solo and chewbacca, she wanted £110 for them each, but since I do not collect this huge star wars figures then I only bought this 2 boxes for my danish price sticker focus. The cool thing is that I did not have this 2 boxes with price stickers from this danish shop named BILKA, so I am very pleased with them :D I also love the text on the insert for the radar laser cannon :D

Thanks mate for the kind words, do you know anything about the text on the insert ? why it is there and why a lot inserts out there does not have text on the insert ?

Mine doesn't have it. I think it's pretty cool though, Lars.

Thanks Emiel for the very kind words, if you also hear anything or get any info about the text on inserts then I would love to know more about it. I think it is very strange that there is text on this insert and that on most inserts I have seen there is no text on them :? If I remember correct then I think I have seen an insert before in another collectors collection or for sale but I do not remember what vehicle or playset it was for :?

Hi guys it has been a long time since I have added something new to this thread. I have found a few childhood lots since the last time updated the thread.

Today I got this little childhood lot from a fellow dane. I was very surprised to find a C-3PO from 1977 in the lot. I know it sounds strange. But I have never found proof about the C-3PO and the R2-D2 figures from 1977 was sold in denmark. I am pretty sure I saw R2-D2 on an ESB cardback in a danish store when I was a kid. But I have only one time before found C-3PO from 1977 in a danish childhood lot and seller told me then that all his star wars toy was bought in usa in the 70s and 80s and mailed to denmark, he had some family in usa that bought and mailed it to him because star wars figures was very hard to find in denmark in the 70s and early 80s where he lived in denmark. So far I have learned that the big chain stores in denmark maybe first began to sell star wars in denmark after the ESB movie in the early 80s. I am not 100% yet but I guess about 82 maybe first 83. Some smaller toy stores in the big cities did import star wars earlier but it has still not been easy to learn when they began to sell star wars. So I was surprised to find my C-3PO in a danish childhood lot that was not mailed from family in usa but bought in a toy store in denmark in the 70s or 80s. I would guess 80s since there is not many figures in the lot and most of the figures are ESB and ROTJ figures.

Just to muddy the 1977 R2 and Threepio waters a little further it's also possible that they came from Trilogo miscards which would possibly have made it to Denmark

Wow I did not know that, has there even been sold 1977 r2-d2 and c-3po on tri-logo miscards ? as I understand it they were only sold on sw cards and early esb cards and then the production of this figures was cancelled :unsure: Have you ever seen one on a tri-logo ? but it is interesting, maybe they had figures left and no more cardbacks :unsure:
