The deal you got those figs for is insane. I know it's different, but I'd still buy every carded authenticated Blue Stars figure I could for a grand all day long.

No, I'm with you.  If I found one at a toy show or store for that, I think I'd have to do it.  I'd just have to do a ton of inspection and research to make sure its legit, but I love that figure.  Do you have a custom of him?  I got one a while back that is still one of my faves.
Climbed a mountain & never came back. I will not quit & I always fight back 
From this moment for all my life. What could I say? Was born to be this way. And what could I say?  Just livin' for today

I do have a carded custom.
This is the water, and this is the well. Drink full, and descend. The horse is the white of the eyes, and dark within

I opened the bidding at $50.....

Wow.  With no figures even?  This would have been a cool experience as a kid, but I didn't even know about it until I was an adult collector.

Wasn't the whole thing that the figures weren't ready in time for the movie so this set came with a mail away coupon?

Close, the toys were not going to be ready by Christmas in 1977 so Kenner came up with the early bird kits.
This is the way.

I'd be like Leonard in the Big Bang Theory episode when he won the Time Machine prop.  Throw a bid in to be a part of it and end up winning it.

The cloth cape A back is actually rarer than the vinyl cape A back.
He's no good to me open
