Well, I fianlly broke down and got a carded Yakface the other night.
Yeah, it's on a tri-logo card and I paid a few $ more than I would have really liked to, but hey after years of searching, and bidding, and being sniped at the last second...I finally just got tired and went for broke.
To win it by only 9 cents made it that much sweeter. ;^)
also got a VERY nice boxed vinatge 12" Leia, been wanting a loose one without her buns all messed up, but no luck. Grabbed one for about $130 boxed, and I'll tell you it's in better shape than I ever would have hoped for. Never detached from the cardboard backer, accessories still intact, the cardboard box doesn;t even have the crease it usually does from being folded back at some point along the way, a real beauty. (always love seeing the vinatge original price stickers when you get a vintage piece heh $11)
Weird that a lot of prices are through the roof right now, but managed to squeak out a few nice finds. Very happy with Ebay over the last few weeks.
