I think you'd be making a good buy to pay around £200 for the complete Toptoys Logray, but with prices as they are I suspect they could go way higher. I have seen a few auctions recently on the facebook Jabbas Palace group and the starting prices seem to me a p**s take, starting at £30 for a loose R5 (ie the seller taking zero risk at all, and the buyer instantly getting a bad price)... but these figures do still attract bids!

I'd bite someone's hand off if they offered me a loose top toys complete logray. I sold 2 of my spares 18-24 months ago for 250 and they got snapped up

I owned this Yoda and wish I hadn't sold him :cry:
Bought it many years ago but was suspicious about the staples on the bubble.
Was told by a few collectors that the glue used back in the day wasn't the strongest and were sometimes even stapled back on in the toy stores.

Looking for any Palitoy logo esp. 30, 41 and 45a.
Also looking for any 20back droids and cantina aliens on any cardback.
