Couldn't have said it better myself, although you are still southern to me as well :wink:

No, it's a standard punch on the card, just perspective and a bit of wear on the punch making it look like that :)

£60 for Vader, and some joker is trying to sell a graded one for $1500 on Facebook :lol:

A month ago I also got hold of a Ree Yees MOC in fairly nice cond for about £35, it's one of the cheapest MOC's you can buy but still a very nice figure to own and display and I love it.

Oh and last week got an excellent score of a trilogo unpainted knee Boba Fett ( loose ) in near mint cond... for £50 :mrgreen:

Sorry no pic of Fett as he's still on his way from the US.


£60.00 each is amazing, well done, I assume that this was not from eBay or FB.
I picked this up a while ago £35.00

This was £60 but take off £5 for postage and £2 for the starcase and a bit of Star Wars special maths that's fifty quid in my book :lol:

Nice Lando and good price, I also sometimes use the 'special maths' to take £'s away from what I paid for the figure, makes the purchase 'easier' in my mind :lol:

Ahhh... the Star Wars Special Maths. What would we do without it?

Whilst very common on the Palitoy 45a cardback (making it pretty much the second most common 45a after BBG) the AT-AT Driver is a fair bit harder to find on the 45b cardback. So much so I can't find any recent sales for one, although Vectis's search engine for previous sales is one step up from completely bloody useless so that may have something to do with it. However, I could also only find one cardback on eBay for sale or sold, so the 45b must be a bit of a bugger to find.

When this yellowed bubble example came up I was happy to have a go at it and a winning bid of £47 secured it, much to my surprise. (OK so postage took it over the £50 but I'm not counting that :D)

I wouldn't even call that bubble 'yellowed' in my eyes, it only has a tiny hint of yellowing and it actually looks really nice and clear apart from that.

Nice example! 8)

Thats the special Star wars maths again. :D
I honestly don't know how you find these bargains on eBay (and I am sure your not going to tell me :? ), I scour eBay every evening and never saw this one, well done, wish I knew your tricks!

I failed maths A-level for good reason :D

No tricks, I swear. This one was listed as "Star Wars Empire Palitoy AT-AT Commander". I find a lot more obscurely misted stuff which I think I'll get for a fair price and end up selling for more than it's worth. It's just a numbers game, I guess. I see stuff others find and wonder how the hell they found it, so I know where you're coming from, but with this one there was no trick. Promise!

Thanks for your honest reply, it's funny how many on here failed maths. :lol:
Well however you found it, I certainly missed it, if you ever are thinking of moving it on, I will happily put this in my collection for lets say £48.50! :roll:
