Having just been looking at some of the magnificent, albeit very expensive 'Sideshow' figures from Star Wars it struck me how crummy some of the early ones were:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Star-Wars-Chebacca-Blue-Bowcaster-Figure-NO-Coo-1979-Action-Figure-Toy-/282645888466?hash=item41cf01fdd2

... and the prices people will pay. This Chewbacca, the likeness is laughable, no hair just a lump of brown plastic. Unbelievable. I had many of these and threw them away!

I'm not quite sure, but i believe that there was a very rare Han Solo early action figure that accidentally has a slightly too large of head for the body, but it was very rare and so, worth quite a lot of money!

Blimy, it doesn't even look that good,
Wonder if this trio would interest any Star Wars Fans then,
They have lived in my film den for a number of years now [Wink]

Now if you only had the Boba Fett with the plastic rocket launcher on his back...that one is worth $150,000-
