Dagobah Vader w/ Secret Luke Sticker
« on: January 11, 2003, 12:43 AM »
This was only issued in Canada on a Tri-Logo with Special Sticker.
Does anyone else have this figure with the sticker?
Seems to fetch a pretty good amount of $$$ from what I have seen in the past. Here's a pic:



I only found 2 up here.

I never saw 'em here in T.O.  :'(
Still need one but doubt I'll ever have it.  Another victory for Hasbro Canada!

I've been trying for months to get Morgbug to give me one of his.  Surprisingly, to no avail...   ;)

I kept hoping to see that here (in the US). I kept waiting to find one so I could open my first one (I ended up getting a 2nd one at  KB)

Dude, I only have one left.  I traded my other for a Jorg Sacul, straight up.  If I had more, I'd happily share but I doubt I'll see that again.

I've noticed the price has dropped on ebay, rather substantially.  In the summer it would fetch over $100 US, now seems to be in the $40-50 range.  

I think they were released in Mexico as well.

Yep you better give it to Dale then, that clinches it.

Sounds like Matt would rather have Darth than his wife back  :'(

You be quiet Dale!

As for the wife, she seems to be lost somewhere in the U.S. postal system.  I contacted Josh, who I mistakenly sent her to, and he said he never received her.  I knew I should've used Delivery Confirmation!

But if I had to choose between the two, that Darth Dagobah w/ Luke sticker would probably win out...   :P

Actually, Brent and I have a deal in place for the Vader, as well as a few of his other HTF items.  I just have to take a picture of myself in a Celtics jersey AT a Lakers game IN the Staples Center.  Sounds simple enough, huh?  The real problem is actually finding a Celtics jersey out here in So Cal...

Who has it, who doesn't?



This of course is not the picture with the sticker, just what I found quickly.

You mean this one Brent...   :-*



Coincidentally, I just got mine on Monday!  Finally!  It's even nicer than the one pictured above (perfect sticker).   8)  A very helpful and good friend on the boards hooked me up with a minty-mint one for a good price.  Very pleased I am with my latest acquisition - only the third "foreign" item in my collection (along with the Bonus Pit Droids and Mexican POTJ 4-pack).

For those that don't know the history of this particular piece, it's the regular Dagobah Vader from the POTJ line, but on a Tri-Logo card, BUT with a good sized triangular sticker at the base of the bubble saying and showing "Secret Luke" - with a pic of the Vader mask with the piece missing to expose a portion of Lukes face underneath.  (updated with a picture now!)  Very cool, and NEVER available here in the U.S.  I've only ever heard of it being found in Canada.  Does anyone know if it was available anywhere else?

As for the price on it, it's dropped down to around the $45 - $60 range for the most part (on eBay).  Used to go quite a bit higher than that for quite a while.  It's one of the VERY FEW "foreign" pieces I ever felt was a "must have" to keep the collection complete - due to it's uniqueness (basically just the damned sticker).

Thanks a bunch D!   ;)

Thanks Matt :-*

Glad you got a minty one.  I was fishing as I have a line on one, though it would only have been to tide you over until you found a minty one.  This one has some edge wear.  

No matter, I guess I'll have two ;D

I don't recall it being found elsewhere, though possibly Europe given it is trilogo.  

To further the story a bit, Canada is an odd place.  Especially for star wars toys.  Through the POTJ line we got a mix of US carded and trilogo figures, never knowing what would show up.  I managed to find two of these (traded one for a Sacul) and then got another from a friend for another friend for $20 US.  All the rest (and the majority) of these that I saw were on US cards.  Therefore not all of this figure that appeared in Canada had the stickers.  Maybe 30% or less as the other 70% or so (what I saw) were US carded.

Ah shucks...  Ain't that might nice of ya' B...   :)  I really appreciate the thought though.  Your Canucklehead collecting comrade already hooked me up though!   ;)  But feel free to track me down some carded Ep. 1 Bonus Pit Droids with Holo Sidious and/or Naboo Royal Guard, please!   ;D

Dave, this work for ya'...   ;)
