"baggie" figures??

Post by jedi_masters »

i think there was a topic about these on the old forum.

im collecting all figures on all card back, i no its gonna take ages, but hey, it keeps me going!!

ive decided i want a baggie figure of each as well, seeing as they are in another type of packaging. just wandered if every figure was released in a baggie and how much they usually retail for??? i dont really know much about them??

anybody got any info would be great!!!

I believe they are all available, presumably exluding the POTF line but there are some very rare ones. As far as I can remember the Death Star Droid is hard to find.

i think getting baggies is the best and cheapest way to get a mint loose collection ,that and getting battered carded figures
no matter how mint a loose figure is described 995 of the time you will find some mark on it

Even if the figure is in a baggie it doesn't mean it will be 'mint' though as the bag offers no protection. Also the production process then wasn't as good as it is with modern figures.

Personally I don't like baggies as you cannot really display them. :lol:

You can get the potf figures in baggies. When they stopped making the figures they put them all into baggies as job lots. I remember wooworths selling bags of about 12 figures for about 99p.Those packs are worth a small fortune today!! I really wish i had a time machine. :cry:

I am sure someone posted a complete collection of baggie figures on the previous forum. I cant remember who though.

Gotta love those variations :wink:

I've often wondered the same thing?

I use this guys collection to compare any I'm unsure of, but its hardly foolproof.

I think Martijn had an almost complete collection of baggies but then sold them all when he couldn't find the last 2 or 3 he needed to fund another focus.
