Great stuff again Rich
The Hakes auction as you allude to, may have a spiraling effect on prices, as its will be used as a benchmark. Won't affect me really though, the prices of some of this stuff is eye watering.
What a great story on Bill Cable and the C3PO hunt, fantastic that he uncovered what he has and able to add to SW lore, astounding that another popped up on eBay so soon after, like busses!
Uzay doesn't do it for me personally, but adds to the rich tapestry of collecting, love to see the smile on a collectors face when they actually have in hand a Grail for them.
Keep up the great work Rich, great stuff
