What it's worth and what you will pay for one are two different things I'm afraid. Rarity wise he's pretty common, but he is one of the most desirable trilogo figures. A couple of years ago you were looking at £2-300. I personally wouldn't pay more than £500 for one. But one sold for nearly a grand on eBay not long ago, so like a lot of MOCs it comes down to how patient you are willing to be. I have seen them sell for anything from £400-1000 recently.

Many thanks Edd, I kinda was expecting that kind of answer but I wasn't sure if a four figure sum was realistic. Joe said the blonde hair example is defo more desirable too and I like the fact the sabre is in Luke's arm 8)

Cheers.

I get what Edd is saying (and agree with him) but I am sure listed on FB or at Vectis then that would fetch up to 1000GBP - ticks every box - high grade Trilogo and sought after figure

The example pictured is the one that Mike Vogt had for sale for about 6 months at $1200 odd with no takers. Does he still have it? I saw it was marked sold but not sure if it actually sold or he just took it off the market.

It's definitely one of the nicest ones I've seen but I think the price tag was still quite excessive, depends how much mint is worth to you I suppose. I know most people would rather go for a £400 example with a bubble dent or two than pay almost triple for one without a minor imperfection.

On potf vs trilogo last 17, r2 carries a stupid premium, ev9d9 is about double, as is the gunner, and amanaman carries a premium as well. The rest should be about on par, except han carbonite which seems to be more expensive vs the trilogo.

Of course, yak and anakin are yak and anakin.
Looking for: A fair priced ungraded trilogo Yak Face MOC (Condition is not so important - no cracked bubbles or broken seals though)

Well this premium put on mint Tris is simply because the average condition of a Tri is lower than that of say a POTF or Kenner/Palitoy domestic etc. So one is paying for rare high condition hence why there was a mint AFA 85 Tri Amanaman at a previous FF show with an £1800 price tag :!:

Yes this is the FB Tri Luke owned by Mike and Yes I have purchased it for slightly less than the asking price but not much :!: As I have a mint first issue Luke graded I thought it fitting to have the same Luke on his last card card type graded near mint 8)

To be honest with you Jon, I disagree a little there. Maybe 10 years ago when you saw minty clear potf figures and dented trilogo bubbles but these days most potf have the yellow bubble which becomes brittle and paper thin.

Give it another 5-10 years and I think potf will be the scarcer moc. As they get sold and posted and more and more get busted out. If you have them look after them!

I think loose prices are driving up the cost of both POTF and trilogo last 17. A couple of years ago you could buy most of them for around £100 and all of them for under £300.
