I rescued a vintage 12 inch Luke and Leia....

Post by StarWarsGeek1977 on Mon Jun 06, 2016 8:47 pm

A local guy here has had a vintage 12 inch Luke and Leia at his shop, flea markets, and  his garage sale... I passed on buying then 4 times because they were dirty and he wanted $30 each.. Yesterday a friend called me and told me that a guy was setup at a small flea market with some vintage Star Wars....It's nice to be known as the local Star Wars Nerd....I went and it was the same guy, and he had Luke and Leia thrown in a box of random stuff... It's well known that I have always had a major crush on Leia...I told him he should be ashamed for treating her like that, and asked if he was ready to make me a deal....I paid $20 for both of them... I walked off smiling with my "dolls' in hand...My wife was happy that I finally bought them.. I have been ranting about how he needed to send them home with me for months....My wife cleaned the clothes, and I " borrowed a belt, blaster, and lighter from a 90s Luke...They look good now... Nobody throws Princess Leia in a box of junk.... He should've known betere than to treat my first crush that way.....

great score Matt, they look in very good condition clapping
Hopefully you can be just as savvy in acquiring the missing accessories, for a bargain price Smile

Nice score for $20.
Good luck finding the accessories.

The 12" line is a favourite of mine as well.
