Picked up this Painted Helmet Boba Fett this morning for £2.00
That's probably a very well spent £2!

Nice one and I have one of these also that was used for my resealed polity 30 back I have (I'm not sure if the figure is original to the card back but I'm leaning to the fact that it was....based on nothing :lol: )

Cheers Ian, yes i'll go along with that as well based on nothing lol.

Wow what a great pickup. Online or in the wild?
In the wild, went to the car boot sale this morning. Was in a box of modern figures quickly snapped it up. Purchased a couple of others (2 Lukes) sort of hid it in-between them encase they noticed. Said will have these 3 please.

Indeed cheers mate.
I obtained a mint taiwan painted helmet. In my naivety of not knowing it was a rare-ish variant at the time I removed all the blue paint so he could look perfect. A year or so later I learned of the variant. I was so annoyed with myself I sold the fett on so I couldn't see it anymore and feel the guilt

Not really a loose figure collector, however I have wanted this figure for a little while now in super condition. However 99/100x when found MOC the bubble is savage yellow and therefore one can’t properly see the figure in its glory :!:

Anyway here is a beautiful bottom end gold standard graded example 8)
