I'm thinking the winning bidders have never checked ebay completed sales and/or haven't factored in fees for the common stuff....

Damn Rich - I'm sorry for you. Those card won't pop up very often.
But £ 500 for this condition is crazy.
Got the item I wanted, for less than I thought - which is nice, but let some items pass for a good price, cause did not want to get out of budget too early.
@ bunglebubs: same here with slow bidding

I will be envious of whoever steals this one away. She's a rare one for sure.


I'm surprised nobody else has mentioned this yet, what an amazing piece that is. Would absolutely love to have this in my collection and put in a hefty pre-bid, but it wasn't even enough before online bids closed so god knows what it will go for!

Ouch, I was the under bidder on a few items I wanted, never mind. I did win a very nice POTF AT-ST Driver though :)

Looks like I was the under bidder on a few things - gutted I missed the Tie + Packing box - would have liked that - and clippers escaped me as well

Did pick up the Harbert Tie so will have to be nice to Rich :)

I put a bid of £1200 on it, so slightly gutted I didn't win. Considering Kenner ones which are comparatively common go for £700+, I think this was a relative bargain. I just couldn't justify paying any more than that for it at the moment. Hope it went to a good home.

Is that all it sold for - I think I would have been happy to buy at that price - but like you Edd (and probably for the same reason) I just don't have the funds right now as little ones cost a lot of money
