Andy,

I just got a new Digital Canon Rebel XT so I will post some decent pictures soon.  BTW, I'll take a close up of the minty Amanaman and Han in Carbonite that you sold me.  They are still in a nice home ;D.

DBK

Congrats DBK!  I bet that feels good.   
Do you have a good way to display them?

Jason,

I do not know how I missed that auction, but great for you.  I'm glad I did not see that auction and inflate the price for you as I know I would have bid on it.  I had the gun and figure but was only missing the cape.

I paid $40 shipped for a complete one as I got tired of looking endlessly.  Well maybe not endlessly as I was looking for two years.  You = 10 :o.

A big congrats to you.

DBK 

Thanks DBK! Yeah for 10 years I looked high and low for the cape, but couldn't bring myself to buy a complete one, I figured I'd eventually find just the cape. Then I got fed up and started to look for a full figure, but then I came across this one and I was like yeah I'll go for it. This is actually my 3rd Gen. Lando, I had one as a kid, which is how I got the coin, but I lost everything else, then the figure I've had for 10 years, and now this guy. Still need the gun though, so if that's a spare you got, let me know we can work something out.  ;D

Jason,

As far as I am concerned this JD Community is about sharing information and most importantly helping other collectors out.  If the gun will find a welcomed home in your collection, which I believe it will, it is yours. 

Just PM me your mailing address.

Regards,

DBK

Vintage right now is juts weird.  I watch auctions go for unbeleiveably high amounts, yet every now and then  I squeak in a rediculous steal.

Odd.

DBK - you got a pm coming your way.  :D

Yeah it definitely is weird right now. I find things which have no right being so high in price, like a lot of 20 or so common C4 figures going for $300, but then I'll see POTF figures which commonly go for $100 going for $40-$50. Just got to catch the good deals as they happen, as I think they're becoming more prevalent than in recent years, maybe due to so many people trying to capitalize on the ROTS release that it's having a price lowering effect on many items...

You want weird?  How's this for weird...$52.00 for a carded Kea Moll :o  That's ridiculous.  It's a nice card and all, but the plastic is starting the yellowing process where it's attached to the card, so the bubble can't be too far behind.  That's way too much for an opener and her high average price is $25-35 on a card.  That's almost double.

Naturally I still need Kea Moll ::)

I had a few of his auctions bookmarked. When they started getting higher, I backed off.

Here are my 2 latest eBay vintage Star Wars purchases...
I don't buy a lot of vintage stuff, but I always wanted a carded Vader and the Luke Stormie was one of the last vintage figures that I needed. 

Vintage Luke Stormtrooper

Vintage ROTJ Vader MOC

I did a "completed auctions" search for both of these before I bought them and I think I got a decent deal, but what do you "experts" think?  ;D
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Well, I'm not an expert by any means, but those look like good deals to me!

I know at one time ROTJ Vaders were going for $75-$85 (pre-ROTS) and Luke stormies were right around $80.
