Star Wars fan Craig Stevens has been collecting the action figures from the series since he was a child. He’s noted for posing them in stunning dioramas, including one that arrays hundreds of Storm Trooper figures.
Now he’s decided to auction a selection of his mint-on-card figure collection and hopes the buyers will treasure them as much as he has —
It will be terribly heart wrenching to see my items sold but I am sure that each one will go to a very good home and be protected and cherished by my fellow collectors. With so few mint-on-card figures surviving to the present day in perfect condition, preservation must be a high priority. With Vectis taking care of the auction, I am confident that my collection will be passed to the very best hands.
The two-day auction begins January 28 at 10:30 a.m. (the auction house is in England, so beware of the right time zone.)
A list of available items is here and it all seems a jolly amble down memory lane — figures of Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, Lando Kalrissian, Boba Fett (the list goes on) – til you get to the Palitoy Star Wars Death Squad Commander, which sounds like something Draco Malfoy finds in his Christmas stocking.
