That's a great price for the Rebo Band, I paid almost double that for mine. Ebay can be hit and miss but as you said bargains are still out there. Here's the 'Toy + Hobby' AT AT I recently got for what I consider to be a steal :D

Some of the purchases iv'e had this year on ebay have been great, some amazing bargains still to be had on there which you wouldn't think in this day and age. Only downside though is when you see something listed at a silly low price it's on for 10 seconds until it's snapped up by someone else, there's been 3 or 4 occasions where iv'e seen something listed just that minute at half what it's worth, only to click buy and see it's just been bought by someone.

But at the same iv'e been lucky too and managed to grab some great deals, but you do need to regularly check throughout the day to get lucky.

Keep searching guys! 8)

Haha I thought you were on about the speeder bike instructions :lol: :lol: but then at the same time I was thinking surely he can't be on about that because it's very cheap.

I spent 10 seconds or more looking trying to figure out what was hidden and didn't even notice the cardback.
