Anyone know if any of the Star Wars modules came with counters?

I have a bunch of modules and some seem to suggest that they came with counters but I can't find any image of them.  Even on ones where Ebay has 5 or 6 for sale no one shows the counters (or says that they are there).

Yes, a bunch of the modules came with counters.  Some are listed in heroic worlds, namely;

Black Ice
Crisis on Cloud City (Cardstock cards rather than counters)
Otherspace
Otherspace II
Starfall
Tatooine Manhunt

EDIT: There are also foldout maps with some.

I've been doing a bit more looking at Ebay auctions and noticed that the counters tend to be a strip about an inch tall.

I have most of the maps sorted out - noticed that Paul Jaquay did the Mos Eisley map.

I've gone through what I have and am specifically looking for pictures of the counters that come with:

40004 Campaign Pack
40005 Tatoine Manhunt
40009 Strike Force: Shantipole
40016 Starfall
40018 Otherspace

I have a bunch of cut up counters that probably belong to some of these.

Damitol, I could have lived happily without reading this thread.  These modules came with counters . . . ?  :x

I did find the counter strip with 40005 Tattooine Manhunt:

You have to love a game that wants you to rubber cement cardboard counters together.

Scavenger Hunt came with a strip similar to the one in JGs post.  It has part # 40020-20.  40020 is the module ID.  40020-10 is a poster map of an Imperial Lambda-Class Shuttle.

Instant Adventures (40137) contained 4 cardstock pages with characters, ships, aliens and gear.

Tapani Sector Instant Adventures (40147) contained 4 cardstock pages with characters, ships, aliens and gear.

In addition to modules, both Platt's Smugglers Guide (40141) and Stock Ships (40150) had cardstock sheets.  Platt's had four cardstock sheets of mostly characters but a couple pieces of equipment.  Stock Ships had 4 card stock pages of, well Stock Ships.

Do we want to talk boxed sets?   :wink:

I just checked my copies of Platt's and Stock Ships and they still have the cards - phew!

Thanks to Avurax for some pics of the counters.  I have completed a few more modules now.

Although I do have 1 strip of counters left over.  They look like they are ant people and the it has the Ravik counter at the end.  Anyone know which one this belongs to?

EDIT: I think they are from Otherspace II.
