Really? :shock:



It's the none paint rub off nose variant extremely rare.

To be honest i need an imperial dig for my loose run and have not seen a good condition figure for a while. But wouldn't want to pay any more than £60 if i can help it.

About £40 more than anyone's ever paid on eBay before if you do a search.

Crazy price again, but there is something with that figure. Most of the time when I find one in a childhood lot, then the nose is damaged :roll:

I thought all loose last 17 and first 12 in C9 condition were £100+ these days. :lol: Ok not all sell for that but if 2 bidders really want something.......

Yep, "a fool and their money" :( :( :( . Unfortunately that was me, I'd been watching it for a while and was just about to go into the cinema to watch the new Kingsman film so just chucked a stupid bid on it. I certainly didn't expect the previous bid to be so high, nearly shit a brick when the winning amount came up. Need to change the old tactics in future, been away for a while and so much has changed :roll: :roll: :roll:

Whaaaaat?? :shock:

Omg a lesson learnt I think, how typical is that though that there just happened to be another bidder who was willing to bid it up that much after you put a 'safety bid' in. Or that bidder was prob thinking the exact same as you and used the same strategy before going out.

It can happen, my big brother have done the same with arcade games from japan. Paid a lot more because he made a very high bid and then he went to bed the next morning he was surprised to see how much he had to pay for the game :shock:

Yes, so-called 'safety' bids always run this risk, but if the auction ends when you are not able to bid, I completely understand why some people use them.

Or you're up against a spot of shill bidding. Ever wondered why some items you've been bidding on get relisted straight away or you're given a second chance offer within hours or minutes of the auction ending?
