Best vintage deals you've gotten
« on: September 24, 2003, 09:22 PM »
I couldn't find a thread talkin about this so I thought I would bring it up. What are some of the greatest vintage deals you've gotten over the years, something to give us hope for the future. There was a time when I could get a great deal on something on ebay almost everyday, now i find it quite hard, but letsee what you've gotten that could be deemed a "greal deal!"

Here's some for me...

1.) Loose, mint, and complete (LMC) blue saber Jedi Luke for $15 at a time when this guy was going for $50 easy in that condition
2.) Loose, near-mint and complete w/ box Death Star Space Station at of all things a baseball card convention. EDIT: hehe oops forgot to mention I got the set for $50.
3.) All 3 POTF mini-rigs, LMC for $30 in 2 seperate deals on ebay
4.) 12 LMC figs for $70 that equated in getting me a great EV-9D9 and Green snake Yoda for less than $6 a piece!

$3.50 each for the following loose figures:
Blue Snaggletooth
Anakin Skywalker

Snag was missing his blaster and was in a bit of a rough shape. Anakin was as mint as the day he came off the card (or out of the bag, whatever).
I found them at an antigue store around 1994 when my parents were looking for door hinges. Strangest find I've ever had.

Hello fellas.  I have not posted in a while, but though I'd give an update.  21 figures to go to complete my vintage collection.  I just got these today.

Biker Scout (complete)
C-3PO (removable limbs) (complete)
Chief Chirpa (complete)
Cloud Car Pilot (complete)
EV-9D9 (complete)
Han Solo (small head)(complete)
Imperial Dignitary (complete)
Luke Skywalker (Jedi)(complete))
Princess Leia (complete)
Princess Leia (Bespin)(complete)
Princess Leia (Hoth)(missing weapon)
R2-D2 (complete)
R2-D2 (sensorscope) (complete)
Tusken Raider (complete)
Yoda (complete)

I bought them off a board where the seller had no feedback, and was concerned because I had to send a money order.  For the price, I decided to take the risk to try to get closer to completing my collection.  The leia gun's, cc communicator, and other weapons...all vintage!  Figures in A+ condition.

All were in excellent condition.  The deal was $3 each figure + shipping!!!

This one worked out big time!

Dang!! You got an Imperial Dignitary for $3????

That is a great deal.  I paid $25 for mine and thought I got a decent buy on it for that much.

Man that is such a sweet deal,  I paid like $56 for my EV-9D9.

Did the guy not know what he had?

how was the condition on them.  It would be great to see some pics of these.

Just tried it & got the same thing! Since you are the owner of the album, you can access it but I cannot.
Maybe try posting the URL for the picture instead of the album.  :-\

Just right click on the picture & go to properties & you will see the URL addy, unless webshots has the link for the picture on the page it is on!
