almost forgot, about 3 years ago one of my employees told me he had a box of star wars figures in his basement from when he was a kid, and asked me if i wanted them. i said, sure, why not? probably nothing spectacular, but i'll trade them off, use them for customs, or whatever. he came in the next day with a bag full of about 20 figures. i took a quick glance in the bag, and saw random, common figures - luke bespin, han hoth, chewbacca, vader, etc. etc. i asked him how much he wanted for them, and he told me nothing. i bought him lunch that day anyway, and we called it even.
when i got home that night, i dumped the bag out and started going through the figures. nothing spectacular, until my eyes see a blue snaggletooth and a death star gunner
both were incomplete and in slightly played with condition, but for about $10 i couldn't complain.
