Yeah, I can't pass that up.  SOLD.  Thanks for posting DSJ!

I used my Bing account to save $15 (double points this week) and Ebay rewards for another $2, so it came to just $89 shipped.   8)

So, can anyone tell me what accessories Zam Wessell comes with?  Is it just the Blaster or does she have an alternate alien face as well?

Thanks Dale!  I don't suppose that blaster comes with any other figure...?

Found another dumpster dive special did ya?  Isn't that kind of like using repros with vintage figures?  I dunno, it'd eat at me....

Getting the figure with no weapon is hardly the same as using a repro.  Zam and Saesee are figures that rarely show up.  If my choices are a $200 BIN or a $50 fig with no weapon, I'm going to go weapon free for now.   ;)

Not quite what I meant, though I admit the analogy is imperfect. 

I'm just saying I wouldn't really want a "fake" figure in my collection, even if it's still made at the same factory but was rejected for whatever reason (and some enterprising young individual managed to pull those rejects out of the trash).  I get that it's still technically real and just missing the weapon, I'm just saying it would bug me in the same way as having a repro weapon with a vintage figure would bug me - ultimately I'd have to get the real thing to replace it. 

Personally I wouldn't be able to tolerate owning a figure that I know isn't 100% legit.  Maybe a better analogy is having the TRU recast vintage farmboy Luke figure in my vintage collection; ultimately nothing wrong with it but not quite the same.  That's the reason I never bought a Logray once the "fakes" were announced until I was able to pick one up from a reputable source.  The other option to the $200 BIN is patience.   ;) 

If you can get past those issues, more power to ya.

I can see your point, but I still think the comparison is off.  The figure's origin is unknown...possibly a cast off or over produced figure, but that's not anything like a second run or reproduction of a figure.  If, as someone else suggested, there are a few extras produced and this is merely an extra, then I'm fine with it not having come from an actual chase box at some point.  It was produced at the same time as the other figures and barring any defects it isn't really any different.  The bigger issue for me is the missing weapon, but like I said, I'm willing to look past that for now.  That certainly doesn't mean that at some point down the road I wouldn't swap the figure out or pay a lot for the weapon to complete him.
