Please look at all pictures to compare them, these are very htf!!!! I have others from this set being listed as well!
****We have a full set of these rare glasses in another listing but if you're only looking for a certain glass from this set, we have a few of them. This listing is just for the rare Vader glass mentioned, not the others shown. This glass is from a set not many people know about, the SUPER rare Button Bottom Thin Decal Empire Strikes Back set. Some of you may be asking, what the heck does that mean?? Well for those collectors that don't know, these glasses are very different than the regular set of ESB burger king glasses. These were only available in one state in the U.S. OH, and the huge difference between this set and the regular set available in the rest of the U.S. was that not only are these glasses shaped differently, (the shape of the bottom of the glass is shaped like a button), so there is the button bottom part of it. The thin decal is just as it says. It's the same picture of the character as the regular set available characters, but the pictures are thinner decals, and would not hold up as well if washed hardly. These pictures were not stamped on the glass like the normal set. I would never call any of these type to be mint because of how old they are, but I doubt you'd ever find better! What most also don't know until they get them is that the back of each glass is also different. (Closer pics provided of major differences). Compare them to the regular set and you'll see the great differences.
The regular sets have a description surrounded in a blue pattern, while the button bottom thin decal versions have a nice white text with character descriptions surrounded by a white lined pattern, like they used on the cardbacks of star wars figures. If you look at the back of these, you'll see the square outline around the lettering on the back of the glasses! Each one describes specific character(s) on the back, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, C3PO-R2D2 & Lando Calrissian! These are very cool!!!!
Notice the last picture where my own set is displayed in a showcase with the original general set behind them, you can also see the button bottoms are smaller than the regular set!
As with all of these thin decal glasses, the lettering/bordering on the back doesn't hold up as well as the front pictures, as here and there a few small parts of letters, etc may have fallen/rubbed off from handling/storage. This is very common with these glasses, and does not affect the displayability of these glasses since you want to show the fronts anyways.
They have never been used, and gently cleaned to remove dirt/odors/etc, will leave real cleaning to new owner, don't want to damage the decals!
These are incredibly hard to find in this condition and would be the perfect addition to anyones Star Wars collection!!!
Short of finding a prototype glass, this is it, complete your set now or just get your favorite character glass!
The other glasses shown are only for comparison differences, and are not included in this listing!
Our items may be listed on another auction site as well, so whoever wins it first has 7 days to pay for the item. After that time, the 2nd winner, (if there is one), will get a chance to own the item next. If neither pay, the item will be relisted. If something sells elsewhere, we will put a note on that auction here or take the auction off until the time has passed for payment to arrive. We would not keep a listing going if it has sold without letting others know it may not be available. We sometimes have more than one of the same, and if we do, the auction will specify that information.
