Is It Just Me Or...
« on: December 21, 2003, 08:28 PM »
Is it just me or does this look like a 3 3/4" figure. Even so, a 12" 3PO does not even go for that much.

Odd... very odd auction there.  Here are my thoughts:

- Love the use of two pictures even though they're the same.
- What is this "Vendio" payment service?  Never heard of it.
- Feedback rating of +1... sounds like a winner to me.
- Yeah, I would really trust this guy by giving him my credit card "offline."
- What's the shipping cost?  Oh, seller doesn't feel like posting that.

Stay away from this sale.  Dale, you always find the true winners on eBay!   ;D

Here's another one:

Original Yoda figure only 2 inchs tall RARE!
ORIGINAL 1980'S YODA FIGURE RARE WITH CAPE


Just incase someone bids the opener & gets rid of the Bin:

Starting bid:  US $1.00  
BIN Price: US $60.00  

This is an original yoda figure i bought from a show for 80.00 years gao it comes with cloak from a scale of 1-10 its a 8.6 , comes with robe. no reserve auction . buy it now and shipping is free.

The only thing I see special about this figure is theres no belt & cane!  ::)  Unless I'm missing something on this auction too!

hee hee.

I find lots of those on ebay.ca.   So many modern figures listed as vintage star wars ::)  Completely unrealistic views of value.  

Hint: if you're not collecting for the joy of it, get out now.  Most everything you buy (modern) will be worth less very shortly ;D

Man, is that seller for the C-3PO dumber than dumb! Sheer Stupidity IMHO.

On Dec 26, he changes his price from $150. to $25. Now the auction is over with no bid, I wonder why  ::) he relists it at $150. again!

The seller doesn't know his Gaffee stick from his exhaust port. You notice he only has 1 feedback. I'll cut him some credit by figuring he only has a basic idea about Star Wars and thinks its alot more rare then it is.

Its a shame to see people waste that kind of money listing products, but its a good forum topic :P
