Worth the asking price?

Post by Crumm » Mon Apr 15, 2019 12:22 pm

A mint Luke Jedi with a clear bubble is kind of my grail MOC, and is probably the only one I will ever buy (fond memories of receiving one at Christmas '83).

But they seem SOOOOO hard to find.

This seems reasonable for what it is, not quite in the condition I would like though.

What you guys think?

Is it a reseal? On my phone I can’t see if that’s a crease or a tear in the last photo

I can't be sure myself to be honest. it looks like a bit of a crease alongside the bubble.

There is nothing in the description about it being a re-seal, but thanks for the heads up. I hadn't even thought about that!

It’s worth an offer if factory sealed but not as a reseal imho

That’s a definite reseal. Also the bubble doesn’t look that clean IMO. I’m sure you’d be able to get better.

You're probably right. I have been holding out for ages and have about £150 to spend but nothing has come up.

One came up when I first started re-collecting a year and a half ago but I didn't have the funds then.

It's a very good reaseal IMO. May be wrong though.

That's definitely at least a partial reseal. There is obvious litho tear and lift to the right hand side of the bubble. Hang on in there though, I picked up a graded 77 back Luke Jedi for £175 several months back. Patience will bring you reward.

mmm, that's only really worth the sums of it's parts, so not worth £125 at all.
