Is this 77B Fett worth buying?

Postby xecck » Sun Feb 18, 2018 2:51 pm

Hello all

I'm relatively new to collecting and I recently chanced upon an ad for this Boba Fett. It's currently going for £290 and the seller is willing to reserve it for me if I'm really interested. The card isn't the best and the bubble has a small hole at the bottom and some small cracks at the bottom left. It has also yellowed. I have attached some photos of it. I need everyone's expert advice on this. Should I get it? Is it worth the price? Thank you for your help!

Welcome to the forum. Seems reasonable considering good ones are going for about £600.

It also depends how fussy you are about their condition as you're half way there to a decent condition one.

I would say yes as well, would be worried about more damage to bubble in the post though.

Thank you all for your responses and advice :D I guess I'll go for it then. Seems like a great deal to me as well after comparing to prices on ebay!

I think the price is great. I would have bought it if I got the offer and I had the money :wink:

I think this should survive in transit too, if it was a trilogo style bubble where the figure inside can move around and knock against the cracks then i'd be worried, but since nothing is moving inside this one i'd say it's safe unless there's some extreme vibrations.

Agreed. Should be fine. :D

Please post pictures when you have it in hand in New Acquisitions”, this will be a great piece to start your collection.
I think many on here would have snapped this up if it was offered to them, me included!
