I knew you had a full set mate but not all those, very cool James  clapping

I think they are great especially the yellow crab Stormie  cheers

I'll look at the back of mine in good light it's hard to see the markings What a Face

I picked up my 3 sets from Joe Y a few years ago . I know at the time he had a lot of them so I got mine for cheap cheers

He's notoriously hard to track down but you might still be able to buy them if you can locate Joe Wink

I thought I remembered seeing a lot of those in circulation at one point.

It’s crazy how you can even tell on the R2 that it’s molded from the Kenner head.

Those are great! You just can’t help but wonder what they were thinking at the time. rofl

Thanks guys , glad you like them Very Happy

My guess is that they were done by a 10 to 15 year old kid - there too good to have been done by a young child and not quite good enough to have been done by a adult cheeky
