Those are both really nice, fun pieces Nick.  Love the different card backs compared to the U.S. versions.  I wonder if the offer to become a Star Wars Bounty Hunter is still valid?   ;)

Nice last minute pickup's on those carded figures. My relatives still haven't been able to locate any Lili Ledy figures down in Mexico city so I haven't visited them in forever. Just waiting for the call to run to the border.

WOW, I finally got my Vinyl Cape Jawa. I traded my friend for a carded Desert Scene Boba. I do miss my Boba but I still have three more. My friend gave me the option to buy the figure back if I wanted it. He bought the Jawa from a owner of a comic book store for $1,000.00 and we made the switch. He doesn't care for Jawa's but he knows it a grail for me so he bought it to help me out. Thanks to Jesse James here for helping me make up my mind. I never thought I would get the chance to pick one of these up. It's super clean and also came with a compadre, also a clean perfect cloth Jawa. Only one issue, one of the guns has a rounded tip on the barrel.

Wow, nice score!  That's a nice one to have in your collection, though I'm more shocked that you have "extras" of vintage carded Fett laying around!

Congrats!

I remember back in college I wanted one but thought $250 was outrageous... nowadays I think $1000 is outrageous for something like that.

A year or two ago I paid $6 for a custom cape and am just going with that.  It displays nicely and it'll do.

Holy crap, might just be time to sell mine.  The prices on vintage stuff is absolutely nuts.  I don't remember quite what I paid, but it was under $300.

An excellent try, but if it can contribute 10% towards a vintage Mustang, that's much more likely what it will do.  I was looking back through the thread trying to find some other purchases and I couldn't find the exact price, just a dead link.  But I was able to find that I paid $75 for my Leia 12 back and I think $69 for the 3PO 12 back.   :)

Under $100 for 12 backs is insane.   :o

I paid $125 for my R2 and it's as minty mint as minty mint gets.  Crystal clear bubble, no yellowing on figure or bubble, unpunched...  Only carded figure I own.   :-\

I payed less than $1000.00 for all my Fett's That includes a ESB AFA 75 ROTJ AFA 80 ROTJ Desert scene AFA 80 and a real Palitoy AFA 85.

If it's a carded Vinyl Cape Jawa, I have a 1968 Mustang 4V 302 J code I'm willing to do partial trade. What do you want a Coupe or Convertible.
