Vintage SW is still affordable - £50 or less MOCs latest acquisitions

Postby spoons » Fri Apr 08, 2016 5:56 pm

Inspired by some recent steals on the LA thread, I thought it would be good to keep the bargain MOCs in one place to show that collecting vintage Star wars is still affordable.

Benny's recent LA is fantastic

Some nice scores here Andy but I'm not seeing it myself bud. I'm always looking for Jedi cards but prices generally are just silly now. That Han Hoth's a beaut - 45 quid!

Apologies to anyone I outbid, but I think this was a pretty decent bargain.

I know they aren't rare or anything, but I've found that a Palitoy Logray is getting very hard to find with a clear bubble these days (except for the TTs), and despite having a trilogo bubble the RC is minty. £32 each, after fees.

Very happy :D

Great idea for a thread... :D

I guess it's dependent on the figure, but having started out on the Rebel commando focus here's some of the bargains I've picked up...£110 total for 3 MOC figures including a hard to find "foreign" card

Kenner 65 back... eBay...pop missing, still....£27

Great thread. Here's my contribution. The picture is not good, and the card displays better than the photo gives it credit, but this was got for £50 not inc p and p.

I like this thread :) Definitely agree that you can still collect Vintage even on a limited budget, if you've got the time to look for them then you'll find the bargains day in day out.

This was £42 from Iain

Image

This was £50 from rangersjedi

Image

This was £45 at the NEC

Image

And without photos at the minute from Ebay I got;

Nov 15 - Trilogo Anakin and Emperor for £70 the pair delivered by the GSP and unfortunately packaged by a retard so the Anakin burst free

Aug 15 - Trilogo Rancor Keeper and Weequay £56 the pair

July 15 - 45 back CCP (pop cut) for £39 delivered from the states

Prices have gone up but if you're patient/lucky there are deals to be had.
