    ... no, not a Graflex. I have used my cheap Graflex karma up...

    But this is still a score:

    Yes - DL44 blasters and lightsabers! I know the pictures already exist, but some have been edited. It would be cool to see them in the flesh...or paper

    Also, anything that shares those greeblies - thank you!

    I was literally about to hunt you down and murder you if it was a graflex lol. I'm tired of everyone finding cheap ones but me. Nice find! I have that book as well... I only wish I had found it for $5 lol.

    lol!

    Excellent score, indeed! You've got me beat for sure - I thought I'd done well when I found a copy remaindered for $20! Interesting, I've not seen that version of the slipcase before.

    My first thought was GRAFLEX, but then it was @SethS, so I was guessing Canon Model X or Y, DeMornay Budd, or Kobold.

    We could always use another scan of the Obi-Wans!

    I'm a relative newbie and was expecting a Graflex. I've been hanging around here too much.

    Congrats! One of the best books of its kind, even by today's standards. This is the second edition.

    Nice! That book set me back $80 on eBay and I thought that was a great deal at the time....

    Cool. I found one in a thrift shop a few years ago, without the case, one of the fold out pages was torn in half and missing, plus I paid twice as much for it!
