:D I was referring to Jeff "the dude" Lebowski and Walter Sobchak. The deal they got involved in alot of money was to change hands. It turned out the deal was a complete hoax! And once Walter's special Ops training kicked in he made sure it ended up a total clusterfuck.


Haha amazing, I bet they got a right shock, I need to see video of this or my life won't be complete..... anyone??

Well done, yes I also myself would have threw in a good few old evil swear words, but good stuff in telling this little wanker where to go.

Hi Anthony

I have decided not to sell my figures to you, you haven't progressed our talks to the level I was hoping, I wont be contacting you about my figures again.

All the best

Jim

PM one of the mods and get the IP address - he probably has a legitimate account on there too. He may even be on here!

What could you do with an IP address though?, the IP address changes when you turn off your router and switch it back on too.

Palitoyman wrote:My word, he has put some serious prices on those figures, I think he's missed a '1' in front of his valuations for Yoda and Ugnaught, really tough figures to get hold of, I certainly agree with other members comments, until you see pictures, class the guy as a total crank spouting bullshit.

It would be great to see some photos, if you ever did get to do a deal for that sort of money I would travel by armed guard, the thing in this hobby is that things like this do come out of nowhere, however in this case it does sound too good to be true.


Would you value a 30 Back Ugnaught at £13k and a Yoda at £15k?
Because he's holding a thermal detonator!!

Absolutely not!

The last few 30 back Yodas I saw sell went for £3-3.8k from memory. Don't know if any have been sold more recent.

Richard (Palitoyman) clearly values them higher. I guess the amounts he mentions are what he would buy or sell for!

Its just the fact that you don't see these figures much at all, as mentioned, the last ugnaught sold for £1440 back in 2015, but from memory it wasn't in the best condition, I was half joking with the valuation on the Ugnaught, but nothing would surprise me in this game, I've never seen one come up, the one I got was from a collection, realistically, if you wanted an 80 grade or above you must be looking at £5k due to the rarity of the piece.

As for the Yoda, I have actually seen more of these for sale than an Ugnaught, being an iconic figure does help with price and a good example would certainly demand £8k upwards.

One of the easier Palitoy 30 backs was Lobot, but I cant remember the last time a good condition example came up for sale, I'm sure someone will remind me, I think the only way you can acquire these rare figures is by buying a full collection, the other possibility would be a situation that occurred a couple of years ago at Vectis, with Mr Carpenter, but this in my opinion was a one-off, he will certainly have been able to afford a top drawer bathroom, which was his Son's reason for selling.

I think for us collectors wanting to complete our 30 back runs its a matter of being very very patient....and I mean years of patience!!!

I have got a 80 grade 30 Back Yoda that you can have for £15K if you like!

Based on these values I wouldn't like to think what my 85 grade 30 Back IG88 is worth!
