Ralph Wiggum Has Nothing On Me

Slightly off topic, but...

Some of you may have seen this elsewhere on the web last week, but I am now the proud owner of a fantastic piece and a real treasure, really.  This is a 1978 12 back shelf display that is complete and virtually intact.  There is some minor wear, but considering its age and condition, it's hardly distracting.  The best part - maybe - was that it came with 6 original 12 backs, all of them the 'A' version (find out what all this geekspeak is here).  EDIT: Two of them, the Stormtrooper and R2, are UNPUNCHED.

This is the centerpiece of my collection now to say the least.

 The 6 figures include R2, Luke, Han, Leia, 3-PO and a Stormtrooper.   I had a Jawa previously, which means I'll probably have to get the other 5 now...

Who is next ? Vader, Chewie, Obi-Wan, Sand People, or DS Cmdr.

I figure Vader and Chewie are the most expense of the remaining 5. It awesome you got a unpunched R2..he would have been the most expense if you didn't have him

A stay at the Betty Ford clinic at my wallet is what's next.

Not sure on who. It will be a long while before I even think about it. Actually, the Stormtrooper is unpunched as well. Both of them came straight out of this display box. I believe all six did, as they're all 12 back A's with no store tags (the empty backer cards I got all have them) but for some reason the others are punched.

I meant for my wallet. Writing posts at midnight. Comedy.
