Han Solo and Taun Taun 3 3/4"
« on: January 11, 2003, 01:16 AM »
Did anyone ever get the Han & Taun Taun beastpack?

I was luky to find one on Yahoo auction. I got it for $20. last summer.   ;D
I was very surprised no one else saw it or even bid on it.

That is quite lucky, I have seen these go for $60 or more on eBay.

Most definitely one of the hardest to find items from the POTF2 line (if not the entire modern era)!  I was lucky enough to score one for around $20 from one of the e-tailers online, several months after it first came out.  I had to, since I never once saw it in the stores.

Lovely jacket Han's got there, huh?   ;)

I've never seen one in the flesh :(
I seriously doubt that I will pay £80 for one either.

I got one a couple of months ago, loose.  And for the unbelievable price of $4.  My jaw dropped when I saw the price, and I nearly ran to the register before the people at the comic shop figured out that their asking price was too low.

I've never seen one of these in person before, and I would never spend $80 on it.  I would definitely snag one up if I were to ever see it for only $20, or even $4 loose.   8)

Like that last auction is going to sell.  ::)
Then again, they do range from $60. plus. but not like this auction end.

$95.70 for that!?!?!?!?!?!  It's a cool piece but it's definitely not worth that price IMO.

I noticed in the completed auctions that the ones most paid for, the sellers are from the UK. Cheaper for the sellers in the US.

I traded a toy fair vader for mine.  Keep in mind, I got my TFV for retail from the fan club (wizards) so it was a reasonable deal.  Vader was already fetching higher prices on ebay, but around that time this piece was running in the $80 range.  I'm happy with the trade.

Nope, I never had him, the Wampa, or the Bantha.   :(

I scored this pack, the Wampa, and the Death Star Escape Cinema Scene for $110 shipped. I don't feel it was a bad deal, because the Wampa and Tauntaun were going for $70 each on ebay at the time. Still a couple of my favorite pieces, although the Wampa could benefit from a cool resculpt, like soon.
