I think a bit of it is jealousy,lets be honest most of us wouldn't mind a few pieces out of his collection.
I've dealt with him in the past and he's genuine,just like most of us he's on the lookout for a bargain.
He tried to pick my AFA80 12back Ben up on the cheap on Sun after it finished,can't blame the guy for trying.
Unlucky though already agreed to sell it to someone else. :twisted:

He does have some lovely stuff on there!

He even has one of the pieces from the Leonard DiCaprio auctions.....


I never knew GI Joe would go for so much either! £695??

Do you think his offer of a payment plan brings in many customers?

Would anyone consider the option of using a payment plan to buy a Star Wars item?
Gotta love those variations :wink:

Not really, I have always been brought up with the "if you can't afford it, don't buy it" mentality.

I don't even own a credit card !! :lol:

I did wonder

he's made me an offer on a Han Hoth proof, doesn't seem bad but its an AFA 70 (are any proofs not AFA?) I wanted to get some idea of price before i accepted. Any thoughts?

Incidently he didn't hold my Yoda offer against me :wink:

and he does seem like a reasonable guy - dont understand the yoda price though :?

You can get non graded proofs but personally I always prefer AFA just to be certain it's genuine and to give you an idea of the condition.

I couldn't tell you how much it is worth though, I have seen the item on ebay so it just depends on what you're willing to pay.

I actually bought my AFA 80 Han Revenge from him a few months ago!! 8) :lol:

I was reading in Kellerman's bible that only 25-40 revenge proofs exist for each figure, and they're the most common :shock:

If I'm happy to spend £100 on a VC jawa or DT luke, produced in their thousands, I shouldn't really be quibbling :oops:

yes i don't understand why they sell for so little either. there must be hundreds of carded boba fetts and yak faces left, yet they regularly sell for double the price :?

sorry to high-jack this thread, but a deal has been struck and hopefully I'll be able to post pics of my Revenge proof before too long :D :D

(I've also asked him why the trilogo yoda is so pricey - I await an answer. I've come round to Craig's way of thinking. He seems a decent guy and if someone wants to give him a grand for a £50 figure let them :wink: )
