That makes me sick. What kind of idiot would sell that for $5000?

It's not who would sell it, but Who would buy that?

That's cool and all, but I think it's a bit high priced myself.

This is so there are no words to describe how I am feeling.
This is just WRONG!!! I had extra of this figure that I let go for $20.00 each which included the shipping and insurance.
In this hobby people should help each other, not take advantage of them. Man do I feel sick.
For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com

Crazy indeed, but there are certainly more than enough suckers in this world who continue to help make sellers and dealers like this exist, unfortunately.  I'd be really surprised if this one panned out for him though...

Looks like the seller just dropped the opening bid price from $3,000 down to $2,500, and the BIN price from $5,000 down to $3,500.  At least he's starting to wise up, if only just a little...   :-\

First time I've ever seen an AFA 100 figure though, on a TF Vader no less.  Pretty cool item!   8)  Not $2,500 cool though!   :o   ::)

Didn't cantina collectables have a case of those Vaders? Wonder if any were graded?

If you happen to have one...

Is the bubble attached at the bottom of the figure to the card?  Mine is not, and several others told me there's is not as well.

One fried confirmed his was.  I just want to get an idea if there is a mix bag of attached vs. non attached bubbles for this figure.

Did they send you your replacement Matthew, and the new one wasn't attached either?!?   :-\  If so, that totally sucks!  Like you said, mine is indeed very much attached at the bottom.  Haven't heard of any other people mentioning issues about loose bubbles, so that'd be news to me if it was the case.  Good luck with it bud...

Mine is not attached, in that you could slip a piece of paper in there if you wanted, but ther'es no flat edge for it to attach to the card really.  It's only attached where the flat edge of the bubble on the sides runs down a little ways to the bottom, but the center area of the bottom is open.

Matt doublecheck for me.

Jesse and my situation appears to be the norm from what I have heard from about six people so far.

I just checked mine & it's exactly like you mentioned Jesse.
