    Hi guys,please go easy im a Noob to this place

    Okay
    I do a lot of business in Japan and well this was given to me via a mutual friend from the owners of Kotobukiya
    Im told this edition was NOT FOR SALE to the public and that only a handful of these were produced.
    Not sure how true this is but i was also told the GL was presented with one of these figures
    No i did not open it ,the person that gave it too me opened the seal to show me it was gold
    Anyway it came with a bag of other goodies seen in the crappy pics,not sure what they all are but id like to find out without having to open them
    I suspect the brown paper wrap has an XXXXSML tshirt for a Jawa
    Maybe the books are diaries?????

    Anyway i will endeavor to get better pics soon
    Please any info would be great
    I have had NO luck finding out how many were produced,Lost in translation from Japanese to English

    Rerun

    Do you know what year the item was produced?

    Edit - I did find some information on our sister site Rebelscum. Go here to check it out. It has quite a few pics as well. Doesn't say how many were made but it says edition size was 'extremely limited'.

    No mate it ain't leaving me in a hurry
    It would be very poor form to part with a gift from my friend Yoshi


    I have thousands of toys ummmm many thousands of toys about 25 Vintage and old school BMX bikes.
    Most of it is Star Wars stuff but I stopped collecting SW about 4 years ago
    So do I create a thread in this section?
    Is anyone interested in other toys apart from SW?

    Pixar Cars
    Futurama
    Simpsons
    To name a few

    We have a thread for collection photos - you could put some of yours up in there. We also have an old thread for non-SW collectibles but it's probably locked so if you want to start a new one go ahead.

    He is gold plated

    There were 500 made and all were given away to employees and business partners to celebrate Kotobukiyas 60th anniversary

    Thank you to those that helped with the research
