Looks alright priced Han the card is nice and glossy. The bubble is yellow. Buts that what you expect from most of the ROTJ. I thought you where going off line for a few weeks.

yeah i will be soon , the guy moving in to my business has been held up and its put things on hold for an extra week... i will be off line at the end of this month (about the 30th)for a couple of weeks or so.. still thinking of selling my collection though, iam only going to keep a few pieces the rest is going as its taken over my life and with me buying a new house i dont want it turning into a ebay lab, like this place i have at the minute......


iam keeping my boxed esb 14" boba, boxed atat,and maybe a few moc figures the rest is going....even my collection of masks and helmets :(

maybe later, but i think ive been put off by prices.....to be honest ive thought now might be a good time to get rid of moc's, as the plastic bubbles arne going to hold forever, yellowing, brittle bubbles etc, devalue the item and are inevitable as there not getting any younger !!! i might stick to a few boxed items, and one or two mint moc, but once they start to go i will get rid of those too !!, boxes are the way ahead !!

Han am in the middle od selling off most off my sealed af vehicles. I dont think the bubbles will fall off. They are getting more brittle. The best thing for sealed boxes id to get them graded as the tapes on thse things are slowly drying out and lifting

Nice figure, fair price. Have been considering an R5 focus lately. Nice to see they are affordable :wink:
Gotta love those variations :wink:

£33 was probably on the cheaper side of what they can go for - I'd say an average of £37-£45 although with the bubble being yellow (most are anyway) and with the tack hole and general descrption of the card being in fair condition probably a reasonable price.

I am after a 77 back R5-D4 myself but the last time I bought from this seller the "slightly dented bottom left corner of the bubble" turned out to be a fully crushed bubble so I won't buy from them again.

Also, as they are based in the Channel Islands customs duty may apply as they have a different tax regime over there - the package when you get it will have a customs form on it.

I've bought loads of stuff from Jersey and Guernsey and although they have "customs" stickers on the packages I have never had to pay any charges, plus Play.com wouldn't get as many orders from the UK if they did !! :lol:
