Damn, Matthew...  That was an amazing score on that lot of figures buddy.  Congrats!  $3 each on EV and the Dig is just insane!   :o  You just saved yourself a TON of cash...   8)  Way to go!  Great hunting, man.  Keep it up and you'll be done in no time!  But then what...?   :D

Link is working real good! You have done very well, (fantastic) for the price!  ;)

Variations can be fun & a very long hunt depending on what you want. I only have the odd variation but there great to have!   ;D

Dale,

I just intend to go after the more known variations, snap cape Jedi Luke, White teeth Lando, Hair variations.

I'll leave the other variants to the others at this time!

I'd love to see pic's of your collections sometime.

I got home to a few surprises...
Minty Mint Amanaman and Han in Carbonite for $115
Yak Face for about $100 worth of stuff in trade

7 to go to complete my loose vintage collection of "100."

Not particularly great deals, but three figures I have been hoping to nab for quite some time.

From what I've seen lately, the three most expensive of the bunch :o  I've been watching a lot of last 17 auctions of late.  I missed a few great deals about 2 weeks ago (again with the family, all the right thing to do, but damn, why are the auctions I watch always $15 higher per item than the ones I watch) but this week things have been steep.  I did pick up a dignitary this week for $32 shipped, so that was pretty nice.  My lot with both Anakin and Luke Stormtrooper was a treat: lots of weapons, upgrades and a ship I may turn around and sell.  

Amanaman complete has been averaging well over $75 of late.  Han has been fairly goofy as well, $55+ so a very nice deal for you, especially considering the condition (were the coins included?).  Yak is easy over $100 with no problem.  

This week I'm watching for the A-wing pilot, Imperial gunner but Luke Poncho is pretty sparse this week, going for well over $40 last week - too steep for me.

Brent,

The "Last 17" have definetely gone up in value this week.  For example a Yak loose for $147.50:

POTF Yak Face C9.5++ MINT Complete!

I wonder if the OTC Figures are sparking peoples interest or the DVD release, probably both.

I am stoked!  I bet that darn R2 will be a toughy for me in collector condition.

Good luck on the auctions Brent!

I fixed the link for you & it was not working.  ;)

best deal i got on vintage stuff was back around 97 - 98, when i first discoverd the magical place that was ebay. for about $80 - including shipping - i got just about every vintage figure (minus the last 17) - i think it was about 65 - plus i got a dewback, tie fighter, x-wing, death star playset, star destroyer playset, darth vader tie fighter, tauntaun, landspeeder, and a bunch of other stuff. sure, the figures had no weapons, and some of them were in played with condition, and some of the ships and playsets were incomplete - but it got me started (and almost finished) with my vintage collectoin  :D

Gah! :o  Don't say this.  I'm down to needing 26 figures.  Some easy but some annoying, the last thing I need is people getting excited.  

I didn't contemplate the re-release of the DVD's when I started into this.  I was hoping the summer would be pretty slow and values would stay low.  That may not be the case though, either with vintage or modern stuff.  I know for sure I watch values fall for modern stuff pretty much from 3 months post Episode II.  

I've got prices in mind for most of the figs, just not quite winning everything I want to right now :-\  Had my first experience of losing to e-snipe today.  Tragic.
