From one side of the country to the other. Impressive.
I didn't know about the show. I might have to make an effort to make it.

Thanks guys! I’ve really been trying to network and see what I can find that isn’t really on the market already. It’s really pretty scarce out here lol I’m still in Moncton today. That $40 French logo xwing box (with instructions) was pretty sweet though. Didn’t come with the vehicle itself, or inserts unfortunately. It’s also gonna be a pain to get home without damaging it lol but I’ll figure something out.

Thanks Andy. The 3 cardbacks were needed for the collection. The blue ROTJ cereal pamphlet is an upgrade, from the one that I have, that's missing the advert section. It's taken 5 years to find the replacement. And the GDE Stormtrooper cereal sticker is an extra, that I can use for trade.

I paid $25 for this one. Definitely way over paid for the condition it's in. It's not minty, but I find that this one seems to be the hardest to get. I've only seen 2 or 3 come up for sale in the last 10 years. Normally I can pick the other ones up for $10 - $15 each.

Great stuff, Clint! The fact that you’ve only seen 2 or 3 of those stickers in like 10 years makes it pretty exciting. popcorn

This is probably the last thing I’ll find on my 3 and a half week work trip, and it’s possibly the best. It’s complete except the insert, and the figures are still in heat sealed baggies. It’s got a Fred Myers sticker, $21 (shockingly high lol) and I’ve also recently learned that there was no Canadian version of this. That explains why I can hardly remember ever seeing one loose.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The box isn’t great, but from what I can tell, I paid a bit less than the average loose complete example, in this fine condition.

I picked it up at the (relatively) famous shop “Toy Traders” in Langley BC, and if you haven’t heard of it, you will get a good look soon as I shot some footage for our YouTube channel while I was there.

Don't mind paying more if the item is hard to find.

Great pick up Chris. There may not be a Canadian version, but check where it was manufactured. If I remember, some of the micro collection stuff was manufactured in Canada.

As for the cereal pamphlet. I'm saying that I've only seen 2 or 3 of them for sale thru conventional old timer places, like toy conventions, ebay, kijiji, & picking up local childhood collections. I don't know how many change hands on the FB platform.

I'm a cheap bastard, so it hurts me to pay that much for used toys. lol!

That’s a awesome puzzle, Fabrice. I traded one of those pre-school Kneesa figures a while back, I kinda regret it lol I think there is one of the horse from that same treehouse set as well.

Oh, it was clearly too late when I wrote that lol I thought you were talking about the sticker. Makes sense, as I’ve atleast seen that once before unlike the cereal pamphlet.

You’re right about the manufacturing country, Clint. This micro collection box has a line which I’m surprised was legal: “Figures made in either Singapore, Canada, Mexico, or the United Kingdom.” rofl

That's a fantastic Falcon Chris cheers From what I've seen on Ebay you got a fantastic deal - complete sets sell for over a $100 - I recently sold a bagged R2 and C-3po for $20 each .

We really need pics of that set in the library [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

We also need pics of that Canadian Read along book What a Face

Alright, I’ll get around to that. The cover and back of the readlong is probably the most interesting part as the interior pages are probably the exact same but with french.

As for the falcon, the box isn’t that great but you’d be hard pressed to find a nicer loose example of the ship, I’m pretty happy with it. rockon

UPDATE

I just added a video of Toy Traders to our youtube thread/channel (where I picked up the micro falcon), it must be seen to be believed.
