So this seller has a dutch auction for 3 but has a separate auction just for the 1 with the same pictures so that makes it 4 Jawas. Somethings not right here.  :-\

Another Jawa.

See thats my biggest concern, the damage to the cards is not that big of a deal but the fact he is supposed to have 4 of these figures which are not common still on cards, just doesnt seem right to me.

i guess it was too much to hope that this one would come to a regular conclusion and end at a bargain price

I offered the seller *way* more than that to end early. 
He told me he decided to let the auction run its course.  Now this.
I assume the "current price" thing is a mistake.

I have heard the old "I'll let the auction run its course" routine before but if the offer is good then...  :-\

The buyer is none other than Shaun N/Decadetoys.
He will surely send it to the slaughterhouse (aka AFA) for "U" grading.

It is a real shame, because the heat sealed DT Luke is likely a one of a kind piece.

i figured it would go to one of the usual suspects.  if i noticed it, it wasn't that poorly labelled.  its just too bad that dilhole decadetoys had to come up with it.  at least for once if someone buys something from him they are getting something really nice.

Had that on my watch list to see what it would go for, Mike over at RS brought this up in the "Watch Out" section.

Wow.

$20,100 for an AFA 85 VC Jawa

I would appear that the buyer did not follow through with payment - no longer registered and no feedback left. 

Way to go Dale!

That's an amazing piece and was I believe to be the continuation of the 3 pack concept. Unfortunately, that line bottomed out after ESB and the multipacks went to the rather bland (yet still neat in their own right) white mailer boxes from catalogs for stores like Sears and JCPenney. The Archive has a reference to this multipack, which appears to be one of a kind, so what we see on eBay would be the one on TRG...

i didn't really think this was a "wow" auction, but maybe i was wrong.  i knew it was nice, but i was kinda hoping to pick it up for about $40.  i was off by over $100.  who knew leia combat poncho was going for so much.
