The card all by itself looks very good, with no dents or cracks. The only problem is the bubble - it's yellow, but everything about the figure seems great.
I don't know how much the condition and the overall value of this figure is lowered if the bubble is yellow.
I am looking for exactly the same figure. I have seen quite a few with yellow bubbles, and deliberated for ages on them. But in the end I couldn't bring myself to buy one of them.
That's my hang-up though, and the main reason is that Luke Jedi and maybe Darth Vader are the only MOC's I think I will ever buy. So I am holding out for the best examples I can possibly get.
Luke Jedi MOC seems to be a bit of a problem. He tends to be either yellowed bubble (Standard RotJ card) or damaged/ dinged bubble (Tri-logo card). I have decided I would like a clear bubble Standard RotJ carded one, I know there are clear examples out there, it is just a question of waiting for one to come up.
If you really want it and don't mind the yellowing I would say go for it, but if you have any inkling that you may regret it later it may be wise to wait. I am steadily learning that patience, persistence and not letting your heart over-rule your head (at least not every time) are massive virtues in this hobby, and usually pay off in the end
Best of luck with whatever decision you make, please post pics when you get one!
