Yes, it's sweet.

The guy described it very well.

I have a a few great deals on e-bay in the last few days...

One was a 65B Luke-Jedi MOC that is in fantastic shape. Really no flaws whatso ever on this one. I got that for $72 and will send to AFA.

The other was one I had mentioned and that was the 32B Yoda MOC that looks to be in fantastic shape. The bubble seems a little yellow by the picture but for the price I paid and an almost perfect card...I'll deal with that.
