Eopie
« on: January 12, 2006, 09:38 AM »
Tell us your thoughts on the Eopie set. Do you consider this a part of a balanced and complete set? Do you have one? How did you get yours?

Dispite the fact that this was never released in America, I'm still trying to track down a boxed set. I do have a loose one aquired through a trade though. I think it turned out to be the best of the best assortments.

I really feel that, by the end of the line, I'd probably be looking this figure down my scope.  Same with Ascension Amidala which I don't have.  I'd require this to feel "complete".   :-\

I have a European one which I eventually want to upgrade one day.  I'm not to concern about certain items like the beast packs or even the deluxe figures to have a complete set of figures but I know I'm in the minority with this.  I ended up getting this figure and most of the last Ep1 figures from overseas once I had finally settle a lawsuit about a car accident and a broken hand.

I never really looked into getting one of these until I looked them up on ebay and saw how much they were going for...now I'm gonna have to get one.  I've got the rest of the line except for the wave 2 accessory sets that I just missed out on in a recent auction  :'(

I saw a few of these the other day for $10 each, the one that comes with Jar-Jar. I should have bought one but I was buying lots of Rebel pilots for customs and I had already spent $100 that day.

The Eopie comes with a qui gon figure.  I think you are talking about a different set.  From what I've seen on ebay one of these will set you back about another $100 if its in the non trilogo box

I've see American ones go for much lower on ebay. Depends on the time of year you're looking.

Now that I have the accessory sets out of the way, Eopie is in my sights.

I checked on the prices on this since the new one came out. It's dropped like a brick. Looks like it can be had for under $40.

That's not that big of a drop.  I think I got mine about a year ago off Ebay for about $45 shipped.

I saw one go last week go for under $30.   :-\  I have a mind to snag one of these for my collection, but I never got the original Pit Droids either.

I have a spare set of the original pit droids for cheap if you want 'em Darb.   ;)

Really? That's fantastic. I've been checking on and off for the past three years and never saw one sell for under $100. Great score.
