Wow, that's great that you got it! It is truly an amazing piece. If I hadn't already found the TIE Bomber and Sandcrawler I definitely would have jumped at it. But I had a great haul and it's great to see it went to someone here at JD!
Took a day trip down to Des Moines yesterday, and stopped into Jays CD and Hobby, which if you're in Iowa, you should check out. After looking around and not seeing too much (usually score big here) I asked if they had anything else. Lo and behold they bring out this piece of treasure:
It's complete in the box with an unused sticket sheet. I know the instant I saw it I couldn't leave without it. I was afraid though it would be severely expensive. This is a piece I never expected to see let alone own. Turns out they wanted $300 for it, and I was able to walk away with it for $275. AMAZING find and the cap on a great month for SW collecting!
