I do see myself eventually buying one but I don't know when. I'm hoping a few more hit the bay and can grab one at that $200 price point. And yes I know that's even a rediculous price.

The Padme got bin'd & he also has a Jango from the set for $60., the TC-14 is still up. 

Another 5 pack went for $289.99.

This is getting insane!!!  :o

This could be the beginning of the end for me with the boxed set stuff.  Being in the UK i sadly have to rely on the bay (where there's a will there's an ebay!!)  I managed to get the Maul with speeder for sub$150 including shipping which i thought was a steal.
The thing is, it's not that I'm lazy, it's that I just don't care.

Check Yahoo Japan auctions.  I got my 5-pack set from there just this week for $175.  Even with any fees you might pay a service to get this, it's still cheaper than these insane ebay items.  Granted, ~ $200 isn't all that "sane" on its own, but by comparison, it's somewhat better.

There are many out there, but the one I use is m-world-service.com.  I'd also recommend you compare the auction fee structure among several `services since they differ from one to the next.  But I can vouch fro "Masato" at m-world.  Very good communication, excellent packing and quick service on bid requests.  He ships once per month at EOM, so I have to wait a month to get this particular 5-pack since it didn't make the July EOM shipment.

Japan Auctions Service M-world

Service Fees

Quote
Customers have to send us the deposits of the full amounts of the bid price.
(Please Note: Before you ask us to place bid, you will have to send us the payment(100% of the bid amount) as a deposit.

Quote
Exchnage Rates:
When you send us I.P.M.O., we'll use the exact exchange rates at Japanese post office.
When you send us the money through PayPal, please add 5% to the amount as the extra fee.
Basically, we accept the currencies JPY and US$ for PayPal payments. For instance, when you send me 10,000Yen, please send us 10,500Yen. If you don't add 5%, we deduct 5% from the amount.
If you want to send the money in US$, please ask us the amount in US$ before you send the money.

When you lose the auction, we'll keep the deposit for future auctions.
Of course, we can send you back the deposit deducted PayPal fee via PayPal.
For instance, if you sent me 10,000Yen and we got 9,500Yen(10,000Yen - 5%) as a deposit via PayPal,
we'll send you back 9,500Yen via PayPal.
Please understand.

Of course, if you don't win, you don't need to pay the fee

Quote
Most of items are shipped to Japan only. So, we'll receive them in Japan. When you win a toy at 8,000Yen,you will have to pay following costs.

For instance:
1. Item Price 8,000Yen
2. Remittance fee----> 210Yen to 630Yen
3. Postage from the seller----> 610Yen to 1,680Yen
4. Shipping cost to you( always insured)
5. Commission----> 1,500Yen
6.   Winning Fee(3% of Winning Bid)
       Basically, this fee have to be paid to Yahoo Japan by sellers.
       However some sellers ask winners to pay.
7.   Japanese Consumption TAX(5% of Winning Bid)
       Some sellers (or dealers) ask winners to pay this TAX.

We can ship some items at once.
This way, you can save the shipping cost!

PLEASE NOTE:
#1 We don't have any responsibilities to items you won in the auction.
Because they were chosen by yourself. Before you bid them, please check the conditions of them.

#2 Before you ask us to place bid, you will have to send us the money (100% of the bid amount) as a deposit.

#3 Once you ask to place bid to us, you will not be able to cancel any bids.

Pay in advance, pay fees! Is this covered by Paypal incase something goes wrong?

I don't know about PayPal guarantees, of course that would be a question to ask PayPal, but I've never thought about that.  I do know that when I first started using foreign services such as this one (this is the second one I've used), I was also cautious/leery, and as such, I started small, one item, to see if it was successful or not.  It was, and I've never had any problems with Masato's service, ever.  I don't really like paying commission on top of the bid prices, but his time is worth something, including bidding, receiving, and re-shipping.  And until I have a friend living over there willing to do this, it's the only way to get these items from Japanese sellers not willing to ship internationally, which is most of them.

Congrats Dale!  Once you bust Jango out, can you do a side by side between that one and the basic one from Series 9?  Thanks.

Bust him out!

My box sets stay sealed, the way I collect them.  :-*

I did take a pic of the series 9 Jango & using the 2 pics off the bay of a loose box set Jango for your viewing pleasure. ;)

Series 9 Jango is on the left side & the box set Jango is on the right.





Big difference in the jet pack, nothing else that I can see from those pics.
