Wish I had the bidders money!  :o

Current and recent auctions bid on by andrealynette

Of course, as I'm typing my response up, Dale's WAY ahead of me.  Cool!   8)

  Definitely a millionaire, or a mentally challenged person.  Not sure which...

He must've won the lottery!  How else can you afford to bid like that?   ::)

Of course, who knows what I'd blow my money on if I had big bucks like that.  ;)

Just like the Naboo set I just posted on, I picked up one of these from Amazon!

Star Wars: 3.75 Jedi Council Scene Plo, Eeth, Obi-Wan = $7.50

I was ordering some stuff anyway and I couldn't resist some decent Jedi Custom Fodder for $2.50 per figure!

Nice find. I remember I found the first sets on clearance for $3 a while back.

Wow that's crazy, every TRU I have gone to lately has had the Screen Scenes still at $19.99. The ironic thing is, they aren't in the main SW section, they're off to the side in another area. And of course there are dozens upon dozens of these things. I'd buy em for $3 :P

I'd buy them just for the base at that price, but the fodder's great too.

Shame those later sets were so poor compared to the originals.  There are some actually really great figures in those first two 3-packs for the Council.  Yarael Poof and Oppo still rank as 2 of my favorite Jedi figures.

I have to agree with Jesse that Yarael Poof and Oppo are great figures that came out of the first  two sets. I have never purchased the last 2, waiting for that frozen day in hell when TRU marks them down to a reasonable price.

With the Star Wars "break" coming up here until July (although there's still plenty of stuff to track down), I've kind of started looking at some holes in my collection of things I had to skip when they were originally released.  I always regretted that I couldn't pick up the rest of these Jedi Council sets when they were released (I got the first two, in the Saga packaging), and was hoping to someday grab them just to have the bases/chairs so I could "complete the circle".  I think it would be a neat idea to somehow re-release the entire circle with some of the upgraded Jedi in a pack of some sort, but I'm guessing I'd be in the minority there.  For the heck of it, I clicked on the link Jeff posted to Amazon a few years ago - and the price for one of the sets was $99.95 (through a different company).  Yikes.  I should have grabbed these when they were clearanced out, but just didn't have the funds at the time.  Do many of you have a big council display with all the sets together?  That was one of my favorite things about the prequels, it was kind of cool to see the Jedi Council.
