Maybe he is hoping that someone is that desparate for a Yoda to complete their Tri-logo collection, having said that i suppose if you had got that far then most of your funds would have gone on a Jawa and General Madine.
Do you need a Yoda for your Tri-logo collection Edd?

no mine cost about £60, and is in much better condition than that one.
they generally go for around £75-£100 for a decent one, but as low as £50.

Which version of the Tri Carded Yoda is rarer, Brown of Orange snake? I was reading a post about them both on RS a while ago but I can't remember which one it is :?
Gotta love those variations :wink:

spoons, that offer sounds about right!!

i dont understand this guy, hes got a POTF yoda which i thought was rarer than the tri logo, but hes selling that for ONLY £700.

i absolutly hate this guy, why the hell would anyone even think about listing stuff that high??!! he ruins in for collectors because hes got some good stuff but ridiculous prices!!!!

whens ebay bringing in this no more private feedback system so we can see what his feedbacks read??

Hiya. I usually dont post but thought you might find this interesting. If I got this right it is a list of his sales...

Great forum by the way. When I get round to actually collecting I'll be joining you.

Edited to say this is actually a list of his attempted sales.

In fairness the seller is a nice guy who I have done one deal with in the past so I don't think it is fair to totally slate the guy. :lol:

If he has enough money to buy these items and continually list them at high prices then good luck to him. If they don't sell then he is the one losing money and if another collector really wants one of his pieces they can always try and negotiate a price.

Look at him as the Harrods of Star Wars collecting. :wink:

I have to agree with craignwo4life, I have bought from him before and he was very decent about it. Yes, his prices are high, not denying that, but to deal with he is a straight up guy. God knows I've met plenty worse on Ebay!

I agree, if some people are willing to pay those prices good luck to him, he has got some really great items but far to expensive for me though.
