Finally locked down one of my "Grail" items tonight...a carded DROIDS Boba Fett.
This is no pageant-winning card...it's got about every kind of conceivable damage you could possibly imagine...bends, rips, warped bubble, etc. But the figure and coin are totally intact and unharmed, and the bubble is still completely affixed, so there's that.
I'm not terribly picky about card condition, especially for old stuff like this, so it's not really a big deal to me. I guess I could have held out and hoped to score one for less than a thousand bucks at some point, but that seems increasingly unlikely. This one was much more in my comfort zone, price-wise. (Still not cheap though)
Anyway, my DROIDS carded collection is now officially complete, many hundreds of dollars later.
Hmm, there's always still Vlix, I guess.
