Esb C3PO 45 back

Postby Michael Sith » Sat Feb 02, 2019 8:07 pm

So this item looks super for display

Bubble is upside down, however this is how it was from the factory as the number imprints on t He bubble match up on the card

The bubble has been glued down

It 'is shown in an acrylic case but with a cut plastic sleeve as well

I love it, but I am only going down the First 21 route ( mixed Kenner and Palitoy)

Was wondering what it might be worth ?

Def not wanting to go the eBay route, so value would be to the community and to someone who wants a place filler

It does look nice on display but does have the issues mentioned, it's def for a collector who wants a display piece rather than a gradeable on the money example.

Just trying to gauge a value in order to trade, or achieve some funds towards something I'm collecting

Thanks in advance for any advice

Yes it's quirky, but apparently it's not unusual for upside down bubbles to be Kosher

For me in the collecting arena, you end up with all sorts of quirky pieces, if this was on FB I'd be saying " wow, it's unique piece"
But in the real world just thinking it might first in someone's collection as it doesn't fit in mine

If I understand correctly, the bubble has been re sealed to the card?
If so then it’s normal to price a re seal as a cardback and figure, so was thinking less than £100, possibly around £60 - £75 as the condition is great.
Please correct me if I’m wrong!
If not a re seal then more like £200- £225.

It's definitely a reseal
It has been glued But everything is original

I would be looking at ROTJ reseal/s / damaged as a trade to be fair rather than selling it.
