Here's a fun one for you food fanatics!
Dreyers / Edy's Ice Cream has produced three superhero themed ice cream flavors based on Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman!
Check em' out!
I wish I would have held out for a slightly better condition one. The one I ended up with has blue paint showing on the hands from where the flesh color has chipped away. Unfortunately, due to the high cost of this figure I had to settle for what I could get at the price point I was willing to spend at the time.
I won't discount the Ewoks and Droids lines, but for me, this essentially wraps up the entire vintage line. I'm very happy with my collection and have officially re-compiled all of the figures I had as a kid plus those last remaining three. Sure, the Droids and Ewoks lines are somewhere in the back of my mind. They're not a priority at the moment, but I can see myself eventually tracking them down.
If you're a fan of vintage Star Wars and planning your own strategy for collecting the entire line I would highly recommend starting with the Power of the Force series. Out of all of them, these are the most challenging to obtain 100% complete and they're also going to be the largest investment for you in the series. However, regardless of which figures you hunt down first I hope you adopt the creed so many have before you - "Say no to repro!" If there's one thing many collectors can't stand it's reproduction items. They have flooded the secondary market of Star Wars figures and in a way have really hurt many collectors who have invested high dollar amounts into what unfortunately turned out to be fake. Don't help spread that garbage around.
Lumat and Paploo were actually two of the first figures I purchased for the Return of the Jedi line prior to diving in. In fact, I may have even picked them up prior to Jabba and the Rebo Band. In fact, now that I think of it, I'm sure I did.
Overall the Return of the Jedi line was far easier to find than any of the prior ones (and latter Power o the Force line). It seemed to be readily available on secondary markets. Sure, there were some figures which proved to be a little challenging to obtain complete with non-repro weapons. However, for the most part I swooped these up rather easily. In fact, the bulk of them I got from one seller - Which was really convenient.
If you haven't guessed by now, my next loose toy post will be based on the Power of the Force line. May as well get this wrapped up before moving on to other toys.
