Looks like a new collector in town on the bay, some serious coin spent in a short time. Honorius must be pooping his pants!  ;D

What's wrong with it was that the seller stole pictures from JD's photo archive to use for their auction.   >:(

No fakes here, but knunt is having a pretty big sell-off of SW Kubricks right now on the bay:

Knunt's Auctions

If anyone's looking for those rare box sets or carded figures, it looks like he's got them all up for sale...

On a related note, was the Droids-style R2-D2 only released as a carded version? And was the C-3PO only released in the TRU boxed set?

Droids style only, yes & yes. You can check out the JD Kuby checklist in link.

I wouldn't estimate current value based on non-winning Buy-it-now auctions.  Note that both of those have a "Or Best Offer" option on them.  I didn't see many of these in the completed auctions section, but Here's one that sold in the UK for just $20.  That's still more than I would have thought though.

I thought Fett 98234 meant it was from some kind of exclusive zip code or was a tv show in the US :P

$20. is about average for a regular Fett. The seller has other weird sitcom\zips numbers in his SW Kuby auctions.  :P

Sorry guys, I meant to put the ::) at the end of my sentence above...  I know that the seller is completely nuts for thinking he can get that much for those figures.  I just bought a second Fett not too long ago for something like $17 plus shipping, so I know they are relatively cheap...

Saw a new one on the bay today- AFA kubricks. Right now there is a Vader and Luke Bespin, available for the fantastic prices of $150 or so. What incredible bunk.  :P

I love how the seller is trying to make this look legit by putting it in a 'sealed bag'...
