This was my sterling L2A1 sub machine gun, or to star wars fans a blasteck E11 storm trooper blaster.

I have a master replica version of the stormtrooper blaster. It is made from an original, but it welded and fixed so it cannot be operated or used anymore. Interestingly enough the UK police saw it listed on my moving inventory and were going to confiscate it as they thought it was a real weapon. They tried for some time to try to operate it and prove to me it was a functional weapon, but after awhile they gave up, but not after chipping some of the paint off. At least I still have it.

The only thing I have left from my Star Wars collection is the white Tie fighter, it was very hard to get in the UK. I still remember going to see the film in 1977.  Can you post a picture of the blaster Gildwiller?

Nice TIE fighter, I also have a lot of my original SW toys, about all are complete. Here is the blaster. These come with a mirrored display stand and a clear Lucite box that covers it when not playing...although a prop it is quite heavy, but nicely done.

Very impressive Gildwiller :thumbsup: Did you pick those up in the 70's and 80's ? That's when I had my Star Wars Collection, when I was still at school.  Do you have the Boba Fett with the firing missile? I am impressed,  you have almost as many stormtroopers as I did :D  I see it is all the classic stuff, none of the modern rubbish. I loved Star Wars but was always more of a Doctor Who fan or rather a Dalek fan, as always the bad guys have the best uniforms :D

Thanks Kenny, Yes I got my figures awhile back, however on the variations I started to get those in the 90's, thankfully before the fakes started to flood the market. At one point I used to have a 100 storm trooper figures, I traded a lot of those off for other items I needed. Never had the rocket firing Fett, unfortunately. One of my fav characters is Squid Head, just because of the variants. I have 30 of them, different makers, different color or texture robes, etc.

What I used to do, was to go to flea markets and estate sales, buy lots of the figures, vehicles, etc. Sell off what I did not need then kept the rest. I built up a good supply of spare weapons and parts that way. The container below shows what I have left now. Since I have my cases full I am not looking for anything else right now, unless I get a opportunity I cannot pass  up.

Excellent Gildwiller, love the full size stormtrooper and the Emperor. It's crazy they are even faking these items now. I take it most of your items are Kenner? In the UK ours were made by Palitoy who also made Action Man. The American toys were better in general than the Palitoy ones although now the Palitoy ones are worth more because not so many were made. I remember when I lived in Canada for a while coming home with my suitcase jammed with the American Death star, Dewback and loads of other Star Wars items you could not get here. The British Death Star was actually quite good in retrospect, it was made from cardboard but looked more like the Death Star and was much bigger.

Here is my favourite autograph of Jon Pertwee Doctor No3 which he signed when I met him in the eighties, real Doctor who and not the rubbish which is on today.

Nice autograph! Yes, most of my items are US/Kenner. I do have some have some Lily Ledy (mexican), a few palitoy, a dutch vader made by clipper, some south american figures (glasslite), some marked China and even some polish bootlegs as well, along with a lot of variants and production mistakes, such as limbs, heads that were not painted. The US made versions by Kenner were made in Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan, and all of these site can have variations in paint or the figure itself.

Here is a 4-Lom figure on the left where the eyes were never painted.

I have quite a few SW autographs and some Star Trek as well. Below is a David Prowse autograph, he was the man behind Vader with James Earl Jones doing the voice over work.

They are currently releasing new figures that look just like the vintage ones, that come in similar packaging. So be careful of new looking figures and accessories. These are labeled "Retro", below are some examples.
