I bought  complete 13" Boba Fett from Ebay this week for £30! (around $55) Absoltue Bargin really as I've seen them sell complete without a box for around £100 before.
It even had a box which isnt in bad condition.
The front of the box is very good the sides and back are a little bowed looks like its been stored somewhere damp and its caused a bit of distortion to the shape, the actual pictures on the box are still in good condition however just needs reshaping, I may try and find a piece of wood and put it inside the box for a week or so and hopefully bend it back into shape.
The actual figure is in very good condtion, one of the wookie braids is alittle fraid at the end though.
I'll post some pictures on Tuesday, as I'm not at home until then.

Sounds like a great deal for Boba, looking forward to the pictures.  :)

I received this little puppy in the mail today, an unpainted production piece from the Ewoks Preschool line.  8)



It will go nicely with my undocumented Preschool Ewok 1st shots, Ewok Firefighter 1st shot & Ewoks Preschool proto (production and prototype).  8)

I bought a huge box of loose action figures from a guy on the Spawn boards, mostly all Sin City and McF stuff, but buried in the bottom was a l/m/c Greedo with blaster. My eyes nearly popped outta my head since I wasn't expecting it...

Heres the Fett Pics, picked up a boxed complete Slave 1 today, will post pics once it arrives.
There looks to be yellowing along the joints (mostly on the legs) this isn't actually there its just been caused by the flash.

Great pickup Kirk, the Fett looks fantastic and for such a steal too! I'm not into the 12" line, but I'd have picked that up if I coud.

Dale, cool pickups on the Ewok preschooler line. I'm not sure though what you mean by "undocumented", could you clarify?

Cheers!

I've been gunning for one of these for a while.  77back Death Star pic Han Solo.  I was not planning on picking up any more figures until after my wife and I get into our house, but I saw this and saw that the price was still pretty low with not too much time left to bid.

Good looking Yak.  That's the only one I have left to finish my loose set.

Got a TopToys Stormtrooper and a palitoy lightsaber for my tri-logo Luke Bespin, at a convention this past weekend.
