That's right it's the 2005 re-released "Early Bird" Cardboard display. I had been talking with Brian from the Yesterville Toy Room and threw out my idea of collecting the original twelve figures from the backdrop, but the newer versions. Which Brian seemed to latch onto this rather quickly ( I hope I don't get him in any trouble and I hope he doesn't mind that I share this with you).
All this talk lead to us discussing the definitive figures for each of the characters. What is cool is we both have our preferences and while Brian has talked me into hunting down a new C3-PO and possibly a new Luke, the discussions have reignited my love for Original Trilogy toys.
So, I'm starting with this cardboard backdrop and will be updating my progress to complete this little display here in there. It's not a contest to see who can finish first and this may take a while, I may even have a slight head start, characters may be swapped for better versions, but in the end it just seemed like a fun thing to do. Isn't that what collecting is all about?
