Thanks again Matt. I'm really looking forward to getting this bad boy. Now the hunt begins for the rest of them.  ;)

I must say that this is what collecting is all about. Helping each other out when the chips are down & having someone go that extra mile.   8)

Bumping this back up just in case anyone's still looking for the Riddell C-3PO helmet (though they can be had for pretty cheap on eBay).  KB's got one now for $25, but there's usually pretty easy to find $5 off coupons for KB.com, so you can get it for a mere $20, plus shipping.  It's right here at KB.com for anyone interested...

Thanks for helping again with these Matt, but I would like to let anyone interested know that they aren't selling real well on ebay either.  Jim (chuckles) and I each scored one for $14.99 shipped :o  The $20 after coupon is a good price, and probably about what ebay asking/selling price normally is.  Jim and I just got lucky.  

Neat things these are.  Now, if the X-wing, Stormie or Boba come up and you see them, you are under strict orders to snag one of each for me immediately.  Understand? ;)

Great pick up, and by one penny to boot.  8)   I have a feeling that will be the last time that other bidder only goes 17 cents above a round dollar amount.  ;)

Wouldn't it just suck to be the guy that lost this auction ;D

3 down, 2 to go.

elbuggo?!  :P  Ya' beat the poor fella by a penny Brent!  Nice work, but damn that X-Wing Pilot helmet has shot through the roof (along with the Fett)...  Ouch.

And since when did you start collecting the MicroMachines B?

Only a few micromachines and as I stumble across them.  I grabbed a Vader version for Jim, but turned out he had one already, albeit loose.  After some discussion he decided to pass.  I stumbled across the Stormie version for what I thought was pretty cheap, so I grabbed it.  Another of my minimum bid auctions.  

The Fett is kind of steep, but it usually tops out around $60.  There's one that went at $122.50 :o but I can only explain that by assuming all the bidders were drunk at the time.  You can even find it online at some places for around $50.  

The X-wing has been stinking ridiculous lately, which is why I snagged that one.  The recent sale prices for that are as follows:
110.00
62.88
58.18

Prior to those sales, I've seen many more in the past months well above $75.  It has been battling the Stormtrooper for top spot, though that usually wins out, averaging well over $100 now.  

I happened to see it and thought I'd give it a shot.  I didn't bid on the Fett that ended about 10 minutes earlier and thought I'd give it a shot.  Was thinking $58.08 but added the extra dime at the last second.  Good thing too.  
He bid one second earlier and one cent less.  

I think I got a pretty good deal :D

The world has gone mad.  Mad, I tell you

 :-\

Holy crap!   :o

Stormtrooper helmet for $227.50?!?  That's just sick...   ::)

Unfortunately, that's the only Riddell helmet I never managed to pick up way back when.  Been waiting for the past couple years for them to come down from the $125 range they were usually selling at.  Bad move I guess...   :-\

Just keeps getting worse. :'(

This is getting ridiculous...   :-\  Dammit.  I should've bought one of these for $75 several years ago when I picked up the other four for about $20 each!  I just figured the price would come down a bit more, since the others were all so cheap.  Dumbass.   ::)



I'm going to have to find one of these for around $100 somewhere with some dumb luck.  I absolutely HATE having an incomplete set of something!!!

I'm right there with you.  I should have grabbed one at $130+ when I had the chance.  The best I've seen in the last 6 months was a BIN for $80 :o :'(

This is probably my grail right now (with a GITDH Homer).  I just keep watching and waiting, watching and waiting....
