A nice pic up. I always liked the 12" line. To bad Kenner didn't continue the line for ESB & ROTJ. We did get the 12" line back in 1996 when they brought back Star Wars toys.
It looks surprisingly nice. Dip it into some tea here and there to greater effect of looking like a rock. I say tea, not coffee, as tea does not mold.Now before anyone says anything, I know the rock is not right. In fact it is just a piece of wet wadded up paper towel for show until I find one for sell that they don't want $20 plus shipping for.
Restoration complete -Got this beauty in the mail today !!!
Battle damaged tie fighter!!!
I’ll need to disassemble it, clean it, get the motor oiled and working , and get some new decals, but I have wanted this since I was 3, and at 41 I finally have one!!! What a great day!
Now just need a loose
Battle damaged x wing and B-wing to complete my loose non-grail collection.
I know the a-wing, skiff, and sandcrawler are on my list but realistically those may never happen.

Got me a handful of lili ledy figs this week. Jedi Luke has a repro saber, but all the rest are original and correct. Dig the “burlap” coat on the Han Endor! And the paint app on palpatine make him look even more sickly and gaunt than the Kenner version! Very cool.
It came out looking shaded that way in the picture, but in person it’s solid colored. Just a lot creamier white than the Kenner figure, paired with the darker grey of the body.I don't recall ever seeing a lili ledy Emperor with that much color contrast on the skintone, it almost looks painted with some drybrushing, which is a customizing technique to bring out detail.
If it's loose figures I almost always clean them with soap and a toothbrush. I think that they display better by doing that.Oh yeah, that photo looks much different - that creamy white / yellow enhances his decrepit features. I can see the grit you're talking about. I'm always curious to know how different collectors preserve their collection, and whether they clean them upon purchase.
I heartell, Palitoy gave out Jabba's Palace blasters with AT-ST drivers. Strange things happen in those far off mystical lands of Inglonde and Mex'ikow.The Lili Ledy Emperor came with a black Ewok staff in lieu of his cane from the Kenner counterpart. Also of note, LL Endor Han has a solid black bespin blaster.
Yeah, especially since he uses the saber on the Biker Scout. You could have also did a play scene with an AT-AT and homemade landing platform. The only instance, obviously, of Luke using the Palace blaster is the stolen one in Jabba's palace. And, there were rare mistakes made with miscards and incorrect guns, so it is certainly a possibility.I still think it's weird that Kenner gave out palace blasters with Endor Luke and General Lando. Which, btw, I SWORE I remebered mine coming with plain old A/B-Wing pilot style guns.
I got a POTF Darth Vader for my birthday as a kid. My brother specifically picked it out because it had two sabers: one in his arm and one rattling around in the bubble. His plan was that I would give him the extra one because his Vader was missing his saber. LolYeah, especially since he uses the saber on the Biker Scout.
