He probably hadn't looked at them in years and when that happens you may aswell get some money for them.

Can't work out if he got a decent price or not though. :?

Not a great price but good money if he needed it.

Must have been a big fan in the day... It must have hurt selling that collection :cry:
Gotta love those variations :wink:

I would say no way. Most last 17's go for £20+

Amanaman £40+, Yak £50+, Luke Stormie/Evd9d/ R2 Pop up £35+

etc. I'm sure I saw a complete last 17 go for £500 once.

I really think he could've doubled that if sold individually.

I agree with bellendra, he could have doubled that price :(

I don't like to be cynical but I think that auction is meant to tug on the heart strings lol

Looking at his previews auctions this guy deals in vintage Star Wars stuff so I'd be amazed if that collection was his as a kid! So my violins staying in my box :P
