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.

A few small bits and pieces that I've picked up over the last couple of weeks.

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.

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!
