Happy birthday to the late Peter Cushing! One of my favourite British actors of all times, together with Christopher Lee, of course

Was any Grand Moff Tarkin action figure ever produced? Not in the vintage line for sure, what a pity!

Lots actually, but never in the original vintage line. Someone did a really cool custom though.

Ditto, him and Lee are just so badass! I remember the first time I saw Horror of Dracula, with Lee as Dracula and Cushing as Van Helsing, blew me away and is still my favorite dracula movie to this day.

Awesome! he is one of the few original characters that I never got a figure of, or really ever even saw a figure of back in the stores way back when. Though I wish I did have one, he's just about the only person in the galaxy (without force powers) that can be like "Stfu Vader, we got real work to do..." without getting force choked lol. Did the pof2 line make him look super buff like alot of the other characters?

I'm not a big SW follower anymore but I am going to be collecting the 6" Black series of figures. They look great.

I love Star wars. Especially the micro fleet! Man I had a lot of Star wars back in the day. To be honest, I'm selling all of it on ebay right now as I decided to focus my collection on TMNT and other lines.

I'd love for someone here to get them as I want it all to go to a good home.

I have an AT-AT, vintage ewoks, the Falcon, among many other things.

It's all in pretty good condition.

Hmmm, not to many good figs in there. So it depends on what your selling it for. ( 20/30$ is a steal, but any more en 35$ isnt worth it.
