RD-D2 with Pop-up Lightsaber - Incorrect Title on Ebay

Post by ModalNodes »

Hey guys, I listed an old R2-D2 of mine on ebay a few days ago (link below). I'm not a collector myself, I just have a lots of old star wars toys at home from my youth.

A nice chap messaged me yesterday, letting me know I had listed it wrong on Ebay. The figure is actually a pop-up lightsaber R2-D2, not a sensorscope one :o .

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264555998360

Maybe you guys might be interested? I have no idea what it's value is, but it will probably go for less than it's worth, because I'm a foolish nerf herder who got the title of the listing wrong! :o

Anyway, check it out if you're interested.
Best wishes and mtfbwy

Hi, I would definitely cancel the auction and restart it with the correct title. If you have a green light saber knocking around, it could make it worth a lot more! Must be the correct original saber though. Check out this thread to get more of an idea: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=40054

Hi, thank you for you advise, I really appreciate it. I will try and cancel the auction for now. I will let you know here asap if I'm able to do so.

I had a look around, and unfortunatley I don't seem to have the lightsaber that goes with it. I did find the lightsaber in the picture attached, I have no idea what figure this goes with, but doesn't look like the one that goes with this R2-D2.

If anyone recogises it, I would be very interested, and grateful to know what it goes with.
best wishes

Ok, I've just cancelled the ebay listing. I really appreciate your help and guidance. I feel a bit bad cancelling it, but it's best to have it listed correctly.

I will post here again to let you know when I put it up again, just in case anyone is interested. I'll probably list it again this Sunday with the correct info (and after doing some more research).

Sorry for posting a listing here then cancelling it.
Thank you and best wishes everybody!

Here's another picture of the mystery lightsaber (assuming it is a lightsaber).

My brother (who knows even less about star wars toys than me) put it in on of my other RD-D2s and sent me the picture below:

Any help would be appreciated. I apologise if this thread has now morphed into a request that might best be placed in one of your other forums :? .

Afraid that's not the right saber :(

Well you haven't won the lottery, but it's worth more than the sensorscope one, prob 80 ish with the damage to the sticker. The saber would fit completely inside the hole in the top and not protrude.
