Not been in the game for a while and I'm continually astounded at the prices these days. £50 for Klaatu!! Thanks to the internet It's been easy to buy vintage for 20+ years now and you wonder where on earth has been the buyer for this £50 Klaatu been hiding. In my eyes a Klaatu is a £5-10 figure. Who are these people?

Any listing with "AFA/UKG worthy" included seems to go for a bomb.

Just unbelievable, never thought I would see the day a Klaatu Skiff sold for £50.

That's stupid money!!! Think i paid £12 for mine with the staff.

Found that loose figures have gone through the roof this last year!!! It's very sad that collectors on a budget like myself are priced out by some greedy sellers!!!!

I buy figures/ships for myself, not to sell on, purely for my own collection but cannot warrant paying over the odds.

These are now both listed as sold. Surely they can't have been bought at that price?

All I can think is someone thought it was a black imperial blaster. Crazy price if its standard.
