I made what I thought was a strong bid ($800+) on a large vintage lot a couple of weeks ago, lost spectacularly, it sold for more than $1300.

things i've been seeing like, a regular vintage vader carrying case full of just common figs - going well over $300+ .
the only vehicle commanding hard $$$ is the imperial shuttle. i got so many vehicles from lots now that need parts i just have them all in one box.



the potf2 stuff has been picking up steam the last 2 years, theres stuff i've come across that is mind blowing what people are paying.

Any vintage lot of figure you bid on, if you are not at least $5/figure you don't have a chance, espically if there are weapons. The big lot I was going after had a gorgeous brown hair Luke in great condition.

Picked up a complete brown snake Yoda off ebay. Some rubs on the hands but otherwise in great shape.

I went to a massive flea market today and actually found a vintage Greedo for $1, which I never had as a kid, so I thought it would make a nice addition to my loose collection, especially since its in great condition. I'm planning on tracking down Walrusman and Hammerhead as well to get the memorable aliens that Hasbro never produced in these Kenner outfits.

Also picked up one of my favorite aliens as a kid - Ree Yees! The lady selling them was leaving and said - everything is $1.

Haha, it certainly made me excited about picking up vintage figures again! The prices are better than the 80s when these were on retail pegs! Unfortunately they didnt have their blasters. Now I'm going to try to track down another ROTJ favorite - Squidhead. I imagine that one might be difficult to find complete though.

This week at Gamescom a trader was selling a Lando Calrissian figure in packaging. He asked 200E for it!

That was just absurd.

Today I went to a local toy and comic expo and picked these up for $10 each!
