ok, so I have a dirty version of Biker Scout speeder in a box and a clean version loose( no box). Are there different versions?? I bought this a while ago with no box but when i search thru some of ur collections, I see both displayed.  Any ideas?

I've had both scout types come in loose purchases, but the only boxed one I have seen is the dirty version.

I have seen one or two people selling "clean" scout versions, always loose.  I think this is just the reg series scout and either the bike from the real set or a Luke/Leia bike.

yes, i did a little dealing with panda. He just wants to sell everything so i figured i would offer that. The Rebel Commander, I'm not sure what it fetches for but I feel i got a good deal.

definately a good deal, nice hit!

Come to think of it, I can't remember the last time I even saw an owen on the bay- I'm setting up some tatooine sets with my daughter, and owen would be nice to add. I'm just glad Justin scored me the hammerhead early in the game.  ;)

just out of curiousity, why is it so hard to find these chases? I mean I know they are expensive, but you would assume people would like to make some money. Were they short printed??

Hammerhead
Uncle Owen
Rebel Commander
Imperial Commander
At St Driver

FYI  500.00 is so wrong to pay for these. I hope they come out with carded versions much cheaper. ;D ;D

Don't forget the amputee R2-Q5!

Every chase since DX1 has been like this. I would guess that you are right, they were probably much smaller runs. What surprises me is that the basic series go very cheaply, especially considering what a box costed! It seems like the lower run should have the basic figures floating higher too. So maybe the demand is simply that much lower, and that is why they aren't doing baic series at the moment.

With the exception of some of these rare dx chases, prices are as low as I have ever seen them for the earlier series. I used to pay an average of probably $18 or so for stormtroopers when I was amassing my troops. Now they go for $12 or so, when you can find them. A full set of series 5, 6 or 7 might only get $25-30. I used to pay $20 just for an extra gammorrean.

Tion Medon arrived today. I've been dragging my feet for a long time on that one.  ::)

Always nice to put a new kubrick in the display.  :)

Nice score on Tion Dan!  Are you approaching a complete set?

no, I gave up that aspiration, as some that are or were quite expensive weren't all that appealing to me. Especially with the carded realm getting much larger, and not offering much new. I haven't updated my spreadsheet in a while, but I would guess I am at least 10-12 short of the full loose collection.

You motivated me to catch up on my missing inventory-

Series 2 Indiana Jones- had it but sold it, don't need
Series 3 Logray is a recent cheap ebay version, but that works for me
Fett Series L slot and J slot (just don't feel I need them)
DX 1 Fett (not needed)
DX 2 AT-ST driver (would like)
DX 3 Owen (would like)
DX 4 Imperial officer (would like)
DX 4 R2-Q5 (not needed)

Boxed Jango and little Boba (not needed)

Carded figures I don't have loose that I would like to:
Yoda spirit
Gorj Sacul
Toy Fair Vader
Uzay blue trooper
Droids R2
metallic C-3PO

The first 3 I sold my carded versions a while back, and if I find them loose someday, great. The last 3 I still have carded.
