That buyer must have been giddy when he came across that!  Hopefully the seller never realizes what he just did.

Its only a Canadien FF :P Plus $30 for shipping. ???

I remember when the FF series started and the repacks were starting to appear.  Weequay was the last fig I needed.  Brians Toys was the only place that had one for the longest time.  Thinking back I wished I had bought him for the $35.  But at the time I thought he would peg warm and told Brian personally that he needed therapy.

Yeah the other figures are worth a buck a piece so he got the weequay for $60 shipped which is an ALRIGHT price but i've actually seen better.  I'm hoping to run across a canadian one for about $30.  Came close to getting 3 in a lot but was sniped at the end.

Uhh.... don't tell me carded Weequays are normally worth a lot? American ones, at least? >.>

...if they are, tell me that it's worth a lot less if the card's warped, so I didn't wreck some sort of collector's item a few months ago that I didn't need just so I could fill a little more space on my ROTJ shelf.

Wait- freeze frame Weequay, was there more than one release? I don't really recall mine having a freeze frame, so if the others are more common I'm pretty sure that's what I had.

Yep, holding the opened card in my hand, it was not a freeze frame figure, but in fact has the shiny sticker. So hopefully not worth all that much, then, right? And as I said, the card was (well, still is of course) bent.

I didn't realize it at first either, but if you look at "The Power of the Force" writing under the Star Wars logo, you'll see that it's not a single line on the US cards (look at the AT-AT Driver beside it for comparison).  The CDN cards had it in three languages, which required two lines and a smaller font to fit it.

Sneaky. Looks like it was the only Canadian carded one in the bunch.

I noticed it from the red writing above the freeze frame.  It is also different and pretty noticeable.  Take another look at that part  and you'll see the difference

In back of the bubble you can see the white paperwork that was inserted with the Canadien versions.

Also you can see the multi-languge Freeze Frame text.

The Death Star Droid has "slight damage to the buble". Sounds painful  :P
