Pepsi Bottle Caps / Toppers / Figures
« on: May 8, 2003, 11:34 AM »
OK, do you have any clue what I am talking about?  The pepsi caps from Japan with either the figures or head busts on top?  

Just wondering if anyone collects these and whether anyone has any spares.  I have maybe 30 or so and I think there are 52(?) in the AOTC set.  I wouldn't mind completing my set at some point and the prices seem to have come down.  

I received a Royal Guard and a Plo Kloon today.  They were a throw in with a trade from a friend and it sort of rekindled my interest in them.  I gathered a bunch last summer, put them away and pretty much forgot about them.  

My guess is Adam has a complete set, Cory has some (2 ;D), but who else?

I don't have any of these at all, but if you have a list of what you need you should post it in the classifieds.  I'm sure someone here can help you out.  Good luck completing your collection of them.

Due apologies Cory, 3.  I had forgotten what the chase caps were.  I knew you had the two Jango caps, bust and full.  

A quick perusal of ebay shows these have come down considerably since last summer.  The boxed sets are available with BINs of around 89-99, making them about $2 a piece.  I had paid $3 last year and several individual caps are available for around $1.50 each.  

I need to find mine (stored in a bin ::)) and inventory them.  I think I have nearly 30 or so, but if it's less, getting the boxed set might be the better option to complete the set.

What really bothers me is that I have never seen the windowed box for the collectible cap arena itself on line. And you all know who's on that box, I presume?

Someday..

From JediMAC:  Merging this thread with the rest of the Pepsi cap discussion!   ;)

So, I got a set of the Episode 2 caps, but I'm missing the rest of these. Does anyone else here collect them, and if so...where did you go about obtaining them?

I'd sure like to complete my collection with the arena, the EP1 set and all the OT boxed sets....but it seems Ebay is the only avenue for these babies.

Just curious if anyone else is into these.

Yep, I am, but I think I'm in worse shape than you.  I've never seen these from shops up here but there are a few rumoured places in the US.  Unfortunately, nowhere near you.  

There are Ep II and Ep I caps apparently, round about 80-85 caps in total.  I have maybe 30.  

Ebay does indeed seem to be the only place and in retrospect, I wish I'd just gone ahead and purchased the whole set with arena on ebay rather than doing it piecemeal.  Oh well, maybe with the first set.  

If you have any spares ;)

Mail you????

OK ;D  I have to inventory to see what I have but you'll be getting some contact from me pretty soon.  I know I need the two 7-11 exclusive caps for sure, but so many others.  It might be prudent for me to just see what sets are worth.

I never got into the caps, but wanted to. I'm still trying to work on my set of international Star Wars TPM Pepsi cans. Only about 18 countries to go! lol

The average price is about $12-15 each for the exclusives,  but I don't want to pay that much, so I'm holding out for some cheaper ones to come up. The rest of them are pretty cheap. I bought 51 random Episode 1 and 2 caps for $20 the other day.

B,

I've got both Jango Fett caps, as well as the Jango/Clonetrooper chase cap.

Mail me if you need/want them.
