Nice condition.

Should go about £400-£450.


Why that price ? I could understand it if he had his blue metallic blaster. But this is a normal blue blaster :?

I guess because it is a pretty rare PBP figure and in minty condition.

Market forces buddy. The days of picking these up for less than £200 are over.

The blasters are a slightly different story though. They went mental but they don’t seem to attract the amount they used to.

Can’t wait to see what it sells for, some cracking loose that guy is selling. Would love a dark brown RS myself, but not at that price. :)

Did anyone win anything of his tonight?
A lot of stunning figures, and some eye watering prices to go with them. :shock:
I can honestly say that I was out of the running by last Monday on all that I put bids on...

No priced out of everything. Only just missed out on the Luke Bespin blonde but he wasn’t that minty, and the PBP Snowtrooper and Han Hoth.

But some things were astronomical like the PBP Luke X-Wing which I’m sure doesn’t normally make even £100. :shock:

643 for a pop up R2 and 382 for a hollow tubes sand person, what on earth has the world of vintage Star Wars come to?!

It's all gone crazy I tell you :shock: !!!

I only had my eye on the AT-AT driver but for the price it went for I passed on it, I can prob get it near mint like that from another seller for less than half what it went for.

And that R5D4 going for £100 with postage, wow! :o

Astronomical prices for the most part, this guy could prob make a living buying NM figures at the going rate from other sellers and then flip them in his auctions for a good profit.

Usual story of this guy's stuff going for well, well over market price. I'm sure he'll be listing more of the same in the next month or two.

I suspect that the large majority of what sold yesterday will be off to the “grading factory”!

Ahh yeah that's a good point, graded collectors are more likely to pay a high premium to get hold of that desirable 85 or 90 grade.

I guess if a seller has been describing stuff as mint, and the grading guys have been buying it to grade, and it does hit high grades, they are going to pay a premium on the sellers items based on trusting his description. One mans “it’s in mint condition mate” is another mans shit, and vice versa.

I have actually seen quite a few ebay listings where sellers state in excellent near mint condition, then I look at it and it's dirty and paint worn lol, :lol: and ones where the seller says it's 'minty' when it just isn't, Or even worse is when it genuinely does look minty but the seller says the limbs are good, only to find out when you receive it it has a loose floppy arm or leg. :evil:

There’s a thread discussing him on Jabba’s Court discussing the possibility of shill bidding as a large percentage of the bids were placed and or won by the same bidder... worth a read.
