Holy crap!  $100+ now?!?   :o  This variation has unfortunately been right at the top of my "wants" list for several months now...  I had no idea it was spiraling this far out of control.   :-\

Looks like I'm completely screwed here.  Anyone want to give a good fella like me a hand with one of these for cheap?   ;D  Pretty please?!   :-*

I knew I'd regret not buying that ugly thing when I saw him a few months ago. LOL. Oh well, I would have opened it or sold it to one of you guys for retail anyway.  :P

I wanted 2 or 3 of him, and ya know what, never saw him or the Emperor figure once.  :(  These figures were the only ones I needed from the end of 2003.  This is disappointing that they were tough to find...  Especially considering one's a FC figure.  They're hosing us on availability of those poll winners methinks.

I found and bought around 3 of these for Brent and I was able to get some in a case I ordered, I believe they were all saber down versions

Looks like the saber down version is still in the $10 range its the variant freaks that are going nuts over the angle of the rod :P

Only been one of these that has ended recently on eBay, for $87...   :'(

Another one up here.  $30, with 8 days left.   :-\



But check out this crap!  Saber DOWN, but AFA graded and from Cloud City, for a disgusting $66!   :o   ::)

Damned if I wouldn't like 1 or 2 of these extra.  I was lucky to get one for cost at a local collectors meeting.  Otherwise, I have not seen this figure EVER.  Never once in stores.  His wave wasn't abundant.  The Emperor shipped with him, did it not?  He too flew past us with his huge hood.

Guh.

The first time I found this figure, it was the saber-up version, that I of course opened.
The next and last time, it was the saber-down version, that's in my carded collection.
