Not the one on eBay by any chance ;)

IMO he's the third most common hybrid after Black Bespin Guard and Snaggletooth, but prices have gone mad recently. Some fool on Facebook paid £800 for a graded one from eBay a couple of weeks ago. £250-300 would be a much more sensible price for one of these IMO. But then sensible and Star Wars haven't been talking much recently.

I paid £300 for a really nice one from a forum member here a couple of months back and I was happy with that price. To echo what Edd said he is indeed the third most common hybrid but that doesn't help the price much these days. BBG is still sub £100 (should be) but even WBGs are getting tough to find. What with Greedo being a popular character it wouldn't surprise me if that one (and it's a very nice one indeed) flies past £300.

Thanks guys and soz for the late reply. Yeh I pretty much knew where he was in the pecking order but obviously wasn't sure on price today. I also was thinking in the £300 range but indeed wouldn't b surprised if it jumps as the condition is awesome looking and am sure someone is hoping it gets the magic 85 grade :!:

You can't retire just yet, Grant, but at a final bid of £421 you can certainly start looking at penthouses in Cardiff bay.

Sorry guys it was me! I had spotted it before this thread went up and was one of several people trying to organise a buy it now deal, but due to the amount of interest he let the auction run.

I was hoping to get it for around the £300 mark, but as it appears to have a perfect bubble I was willing to pay a 25% premium. My max bid was £435 so I wasn't prepared to go much higher. It's still almost half the price of the last one that sold on eBay, and I've been after one of these for nearly three years and only a few have come up for sale over that time despite him not being that rare. I was offered a rather beaten up one for £250 earlier this year, but am glad I held out for a better one. Will post a decent pic when he arrives.

Here he is. I'm pretty happy with him considering how bad the auction photos were (I was worried they were deliberately blurry to hide creases etc) the bubble is flat on the face but has a couple of tiny dents on the sides, and the pin hole is sadly through the card rather than the punch so it definitely wouldn't grade 85. He displays very well though.

£250-300 eh Edd :!: :lol: Nah just kidding. A v nice piece and it was the bubble condition that attracted me to it but I had my price and that was what I was willing to go to. Nice pick up :)

Echo the above. A nice buy, Edd. Worthwhile spending the extra for the better condition items which do carry that premium. But leave it longer in this market and they'll just cost more and more...

I've got to ask, what is "hybrid " about it?
Is the back a ESB type?
Thanks
