21 Back Fett for £21500 and that's not a particularly rare figure. Kenner has had a real lift since the high value Telescopic sales at the Hakes Auction.
Because he's holding a thermal detonator!!

Someone on FB is currently asking 9500 USD for a 45 back RL Threepio - quite a mark up on it's equally rare Palitoy cousin

All Kenner 12 Back C3P0 £3750, Han £3500, Vader £3400 all priced higher than there Palitoy Counterparts that was unheard of a few years ago, Kenner is no longer a cheaper collecting option.

Are they selling at that price?

If it helps the discussion, I bought Kenner 12a chewie and Han for £1000 each in 2015. Both 80 grade. Sold them for the same amount in the last 6 months.

Kenner 12 backs are actually declining in value based on tracker sales with the exception of very high grade examples

I think that your right.
The ones that fetch high prices are the really high graded one’s, all the rest have lost a bit lately.

What about Palitoy prices are they increasing or decreasing?

Pretty sure the listings you refer to all have a ‘make an offer’ option, and I know from experience with this seller that they set the bar high but are open to negotiation - I’m sure they’d be surprised if they got these prices.
