But it's just the box?!

Post links to your own or other people's Ebay auctions. It is fine to discuss live auctions, but DO NOT post links to closed auctions for at least 7 days after the listing ends. See sales forum rules for details.

Always love when the seller splits up the toy from the packaging just to make more money out of it, but would you pay this for it? :roll:

Would I pay that for it? No but then again I don't know if anyone has yet. Seller always seems to have the exact same item, well most of them up FS again in a few months time
Hooch, somehow you always make ewoks look cool 8)

When I first read the listing I thought it was for vehicle as well and then realised it wasn't. Thinking about it I would probably pay that and over for an opened VCJ Palitoy 12 back card and bubble so I guess it's all relative really. I just hate when sellers part things out like this just to maximize on profit. The loose Skiff he was selling probably came with this box so it just doesn't seem right to split it up like this.

There seems to be quite of bit of this going on. Have noticed it with a few baggie mailers too, selling all the baggies and box in seperate listings. Not too sure if I agree with it or not but I guess if you are just after one or two baggies to complete other mailers then you would be happy about it.

That seller is a magnificent dick. He had a Palitoy Boba Fett listed a while back and snuck in the description it was possibly, although unlikely, a reseal. He directed buyers to make their own minds up based on his photos then completely negated to photograph the affected area. Despite repeated requests for accurate photos he put up more shit photos and did a Glanville (failed to answer direct questions with direct answers).

I have seen their listings before and always stayed away due to how over the top they seem. Just out for a quick buck and who knows what's been done to any of their stock.

I think a Palitoy Jawa card with the correct VC bubble will be worth a tad more than £200! :lol:
