Man, the things you find when you come from from work.  :o

Looks pretty good to me. Nice pictures on the auction too.

Anyone care to comment on this?

Well it looks like the real deal. It is a large sum of money to drop on anything.

Personally the VLix fig has never been an interest of mine. It has never appealed to me . The rarity is a factor but visually it lacks something for me. I never saw the cartoons of either series. I have had the chance to inspect a Vlix my self and it just didn't do anything for me.

On the other hand if you area seroius collector I would buy a high dollar piece in person of from a dealer with experiance. I am not saying that this fig is not real but I would sleep better at night if I received my item at the time I droppped a few grand.

Either way it will be fun to watch this item.
Any quesses at top price??

Seems a bit pricey to me, but I don't collect anything from "Droids."

As far as I know, mint carded Vlix goes for about 3000$.
So for a non-mint loose Vlix, I think I would keep looking for something cheaper.

Can anyone confirm the price of a carded Vlix?

I think it was Cloud City Collectibles who recently had a carded Vlix.
Price tag;$12,000 :o

I just checked bach but it appears to have gone so someone thought it was worth it.

D'oh!  I was only off by $9000.  I just paid $200 for a Blue snaggletooth and thats the most I will ever pay for 3 inches of plastic. But, if you have the money, do what makes you happy!

Good ol Toyfel.
He has alot of very nice stuff on his auctions from time to time. This is a very nice loose Vlix. I wish I had the $$$$$$$ for it.

This one came up on auction last night. MOC. Though the seller ended the auction & the same with the POTF Anakin.
Stolen pictures from what I have heard.

Very bad feedabck on the seller too.

Not to mention the seller relisted the auctions & ended them again.  ::)

Stay away from this seller.

Wow, the reserve has been met on the loose Vlix. $2000.
I think it may go higher.

 2 grand huh ? Wow!! Even though the Vlix is a coveted figure among the super collectors i could only imagine what i could use $2000 for. That could catch you up on alot  of colectibles as well as modifying a costume ( if your into  that ) or replicas. Man,  just thinking about bustin out 2 grand for a SW figure that in alot of ways fans might say " isn't reeeeeeally relevant to SW is just insane !!

 Also, i came across the vintage small scale " metal " Tie Bomber yesterday at a flea market. The dealer knew what he had, and as we all know it sells for no less that $400.00 and usually climbs upwards to 6 .  ...sigh....

$400. to $600. for a diecast Tie Bomber? Was it boxed?
Loose ones you can get off Ebay for $90. up. I got mine 2 tears ago for $120.
This one sold on Ebay for more than I expected.

It was packaged. The dealer that had that had ALOT of vintage stuff from all around the world. Thing is, his prices were waaaaaaaaaaaay over priced. I was amazed at this guy and his pricing . He didhave alot. But with prices like he had he won't move any of it for sure...

Toyfel has another Vlix on auction.
Though it looks like the last bidder was a deadbeat & he relisted it.
