Love the fact that you bought an Italian Harbert DSD for 99p right here in the UK!
That actually adds strength to the otherwise flimsy story of the Harbert VCJ bought in the UK in the eighties.

Like Joe I'm amazed I missed this thread until now.

Some of those are going to be hard to value because of they are very uncommon. Luke and Leia on 45b cardback a (those are what you have) really don't turn up. I would suggest in open auction you'd be looking at £400+ on each. I know that's what I would be prepared to go to and I'm meant to be selling, not buying. The only caveat there is a closer look at Luke. He looks to have picked up something a little nasty.

The pick of the bunch is the Harbert Death Star Droid. Absolutely brilliant and that 99p sticker makes it. Four figures in him no problem at all. You'll do well out of these and £3,000+ shouldn't be too hard at all.

Question for you: it's unusual, although by no means unheard of, for stores to put price stickers on the back or on the bubble. Those are to too least "problematic" spots for collectors: they're easily removed from the bubble (although it's a shame to do so) and unobtrusive on the back. Did you move the labels when you bought them or did they come like that?

Hi, not been on here much. Sorry. Got too confused with all the different information. All the figures are exactly as I bought them, aged by being in a box at the back of a meter cupboard. We bought lots, along with some dinkey and corgi cars, action man stuff etc. When we saw them reasonably priced and were giving them to our son as presents bit by bit but he went off them so they all just stayed there. They are what they are and no attempt has been made to change or improve. I understand from others on here a couple of them have, I think the term was frosting, if I remember correctly.

Regards

Hi - I know this is an old thread but as an owner of a Harbert Boba Fett bought in the UK I am very interested in where you bought the Death Star Droid. Since discovering the rarity of my Fett card the common thought was that it was only available in Italy - like you I have also somewhat dispelled the myth. The thing that really piqued my interest was the Bargain Market price sticker as that tallies with my own memory of place of purchase. Be great to hear from you. T
