AFA sucks but like you said Jesse, it may benefit. We shall see in time.

On another vinty note:

Authentic Rocket Firing Boba Fett Prototype

Oh my, I was in Madison just a couple of years ago.  Had I known that was there, I would have stolen it :P

Well, I'd have taken all his other stuff too, of course :P  Would have saved me a lot of money, though crossing the border could have been entertaining. 

Madison only has about 100,000 people in it, I could have found the place.  (black helicopter disclaimer: I am, of course, kidding about all of this).

This is about the only thread I want my wife to read.  People are nuts.  I mean that's cool and all, but geez, that's $2000 Canadian.   :o  A lot of money.

Those displays are nice. I can only hope that the 3 or 4 modern ones that I have like that (mobiles) are worth that much in 20 years. I doubt it tho  :-\

No doubt, but I am not there nor do I think I will be there.  Like Dave, I have some nice modern pieces and I certainly understand the appeal of those vintage items but I just can't part with that kind of cash.  My only real reward the day of the DVD release was a couple of the pieces from a Zellers display and they are mighty nice.  I'm hoping to get some more stuff from ROTS as well. 

If I stumbled on vintage display stuff, I'd be happy to keep it but sure would be tempted to sell.

Original Kenner Boba Fett Photo Art Star Wars Prototype

Darth Vader Resin Stunt Lightsaber Prop

I don't think I'd be in too big a hurry to bid one something for the money he wants when he only has a feedback rating of 43.  Even if these are legit, I think he's going to have a hard time convincing people of that fact.  Nowadays, you have to be skeptical about auctions like these on eBay, and I think that's going to hurt his ability to sell.

I agree with you Jesse. I don't think these 2 items will sell and for that kind of money I would rather have a Rocket Fett or a Vlix and may still have some coin to boot!
