Holy fuck! :o

That's that seller again, he sometimes sells PBP figures in mint condition, and for some reason all his figures get very high or ridiculously high prices.

Iv'e seen carded versions of this go cheaper. :?

Is it possible he has fake accounts set up that buy from each other or push prices up?
712 pounds and the market is too crazy to be right. MOC's go for less.

I had one seller a month half ago I kept having these odd bidding wars with. But since I was a newbie in the whole SW vintage stuff I pulled out earlier than people would normally do. Both times I got a "second chance" to buy cause original bidder had withdrawn his bid... Odd if once. Suspicious if twice.

BTW I found out it was the recarded market I had ventured into so was quite happy I didn't get "stuck" with a bid.

Judging from the top 2 bids it seems a very good chance the bidders are genuine, they've not bid with this seller much apart from this auction really and they've been bidding with tons of other sellers.

I think that this seller has come up before?
I have boight from him, via FB, and as far as I am concerned he’s a great seller with some very very nice figures.
If you buy from him, you may pay a premium price, but what you will be getting is a premium figure.

This seller is a well respected collector and is very knowledgeable on the PBP front - the finish price for this is ridiculous though

I have 2 loose pop ups, may consider selling one if they're going for this kind of price.

Word - always good service and the real deal. And that's might be, why some collectors are willing to pay more. Pay 200 Quids for a figure which might be what you want oder pay 300 if you can be sure to get what you want.
Anyway I never saw an R2 pop-up go over the moon like that.

The seller is Sergio Sierra. He is massively respected in the community and his knowledge on PBP is second to none. I would imagine this is the reason for the high prices. People trust what they get from this guy. But yes, the price is way above what was current market value.
