so almost 3 days have passed, and han hasn't gone up any. you think that's it, or will there be a little last minute fever?

and it looks like nobody's biting on that vlix... c'mon brent, you know you want it  :D
Title: Re: Wow
Post by: DSJ™ on July 23, 2004, 01:25 AM
Last minute fever, lots of people wait till the dying minutes. So sense getting into a bidding war.

Last minute fever, lots of people wait till the dying minutes. So sense getting into a bidding war.

As a seller on ebay, I love it when people bid on my items early and often.  

As a buyer on ebay, I have absolutely no clue why anyone does that.  Really, what's the point.  I think every auction I've ever bid on before the final seconds I have lost.  Someone always snipes it and that is exactly how I prefer to buy, bidding early only when I won't be around when an auction ends.  

I think han will go for $3300 or so.  Vlix may not go, that's a lot of money for a loose figure.  I am aware of the rarity, of course, but I'd think that would fit as a last second buy as well.  

Personally I've got one more lottery ticket shot tonight.  If I win, that will be my first purchase :)

There's still time and boy, I'd like to own that.  Winning the lottery would throw that whole collector's challenge thread into utter chaos.  Full vintage boxed/carded collection, first cards and trilogo I think.  Wonder if there are any carded Vlix' in the world?

Yes there are. James Gallo from RS has a Vilx focus & has 1 or 2 or...

The toysrgus.com site has some pics of a carded Vlix too. There have been the odd carded Vlix's show up in the past on eBay, better win that lottery! If I remember they run $6000. +

That's got to be one mighty rare item.  Even with a lottery win, I think my wife would kill me for dropping that much money on a toy.  LOL.

Im sooooooo pleased I've focused on European variations when I see auctions like those.  ;D


I've sold off all of my Glasslite, Lili Ledy and Top Toys items... I'd have honestly gone nuts and used the CC to BIN a few of those only 18 months ago!!!  ::)

The loose R2 'variation' (with the blue eye) and the poster/calender proof sheet are interesting.  8)

HUGE VINTAGE STAR WARS LOT - ALL 78-80! WOW!
44 FIGURES, 9 VEHICLES, and 8 PLAYSETS from SW and ESB (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=5926594897&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT)

Quote
Death Star

1978. Original box. Complete. This is the Kenner, Canadian version from Sears with the yellow “Special!” offer sticker on the box. The 2 Stormtroopers from the box are in with the figures (see above), but otherwise all pieces are here and mint or near mint. I got this set in 78, assembled it, then got the other Death Star, which I thought was cooler, so this one was disassembled and put into storage right away – so, it’s like it wasn’t even played with. A couple of the cardboard walls are very slightly frayed near the tabs where they connect, but this won’t be noticeable when displayed assembled. Instructions included. The box has a few flaws, one face is a bit warped, the flaps are a bit creased and it was taped closed, but it is still bright, no fading and it will display beautifully.

I have seen this playset close up last Friday over at a friends place who just aquired one of these. Very impressive.  :o   8)

What make this auction so neat is that some of the boxes are the Canadian version, very sought after in the collecting field.

You could ALWAYS have someone with 2 accounts, or friends that get together and overinflate items.

person A says to person B:

I have a rare fig, I'll put it on ebay for about 30% more than what it's worht.  You buy it, and I'll reimburse you.  I'll only lose a small % to ebay, and I'll post what it sold for all over the net giving a false sense of what that items value truly is, sell it a month later, maybe get an extra 20 or 30% for it, and make out in the long run.

Did these end with BIN or what? One auction lasted all of two minutes? Let's rename this thread "Ouch" instead of "Wow", okay?

I imagine the seller to be some skin-head St. Johnny (St. Cloud sports) based on the butt kicking Doc Martin boots he has up today - probably selling his little brother's SW collection for meth money... With no idea what people would pay for it.

It's very easy to end an auction within minutes or seconds of a seller posting. When a seller throws out something of intrest at a very low price, bidders go to the sellers other auctions & refresh & watch what they are posting. Been there done that & if your lucky you may score.  ;D

What? I missed the Bush reference in my post, if there was one...

Nope, St. Cloud is out I-94 from the cities. Too far out to even fake being a suburb. Depending on how you drive, it's about 90 minutes if I recall correctly. It's a real party school type of town, with a decent summer theater a little farther out in Alexandria... And from the looks of it, vintage Star Wars toys are cheap there!

Y'know, I hate the internet.  All subtlety is lost.  The few pm's we've exchanged have usually had some Bush references and I knew you were a little surprised that Bush won, or at least so it seemed in your last pm, where you mention being in marketing and out of touch with a chunk of the population.  Thought I was being funny, clearly I was not.  Pardon.  

St. Cloud is to the north, yes?  Haven't driven to the Cities for quite some time, but I recall going past it on I-94.  US Schools in general are better for partying.  Not quite sure why, given our drinking age is 18 versus 21 there.  Oh well, those days are long past :'(

Dale, stop that. :'(  The sole consolation is that my R2 looks better than that one.  Oh sure, it cost $65 but it was well worth the difference ::)

Ah - the wow vs. ouch part - I get it now. No worries, no pardon necessary. The internet eats subtlety, but in this case it was all me. I was just too daft to get it.

Us marketing guys are really 'mart when it comes to readin' fer undertandin' n' stuf. I remember that discussion when the realization hit me about how far a field I am from the electoral mass. I'm non-discriminating in the ways I'm out of touch, election year or not. Ask my wife.  :)

Post by: DSJ™ on January 3, 2005, 05:46 PM
Sorry about that Brent but ya gotta know & learn about the heart aches of auctions. I remember the auctions a seller was posting on a Sunday night a year or two ago, just happened to be checking out the BIN section & there were 12 back carded figures being posted for $100. each.

What a zoo that was refreasing the sellers page as they were listing & trying to grab one or two of them. Course I was not the only one that saw them as a few members on RS saw them.

Bin's were going left & right like crazy & the ones that scored were happy.

Then it started, the seller emailed the bidders saying they were not available or something to that effect. Wish I could find the thread on RS but there search engines sucks big time.

I think it landed up that someone saw the whole auctions & gave the seller a buy out price & landed up getting all the figures. More than what the seller wanted for the auctions.

If I find that thread, I'll post it, I'm sure a few of the vinty guys remember this.

Well if I didn't already have the blue snag and Yak Face, I would have bid myself.  The paint wear on the boots of the blue snag are all different, IMO. 

There are things that do bug me: Yak Face looks pretty similar in each, but they could all just be nice; Amanaman in a baggie with no weapon - why bother?

Goo Gone it and reglue it better.   :-*

I'm not really sure that would work out any better than the job that has been done already. I've used Goo Gone (and some other paint remover stuff, like Goof-Off and a few other products) and they all seem to leave at least a little bit of residue behind, aside from the fact that they also remove the slightest bit of paint from the original product to begin with. Plus, if you just put any of those products on the head/neck glue mess on that figure, the amount of time that would be neccesary to loosen the glue would defintely affect the paint on the head and neck itself, to the point where you would need to touch up the paint on those parts to make it look like a regular production figure again. And matching paint colors to paint that old is not exactly easy.

***wow, it took me like 15 minutes to type that, with all the backspacing I had to do to correct spelling errors... I've had a little too much to ddrink already I guess...
Title: Re: Wow
Post by: CorranHorn on February 5, 2005, 02:24 AM
if u wanna loosen the glue, just dump the figure in a bowl of hot water, that should do the trick just fine.

Title: Re: Wow

It may sound strange, but AFA may be a benefit to those of us that are looking to buy carded figures, but want nothing to do with AFA.  Perhaps the AFA-graded cards will create a decreased demand for the ungraded figures, actually lowering prices (assuming more and more people prefer graded over ungraded).   

If this were to happen, it would be good for the buyer, but not so good for the seller (of ungraded figures).  I only own one carded vintage figure but fully intend to collect vintage in the future - perhaps at that time prices will be more affordable?   Who knows what AFA will do to the hobby in the future.

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).

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.

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.

The seller ended this listing early because of an error in the minimum bid or Reserve amount.

Absolutely. That auction hit $72 last night and I deleted it from my watched items.  Would like to have it, but looking much more for a price like yours ;)

I think you've said it before and I agree.  It's largely the wrong time to be buying vintage stuff with the movie hype having everyone paying attention.

Droids weren't always in high demand.  When I first started collecting (1995-ish), it seemed like nobody wanted them.  Dealers had trouble moving them at $20 each MOC. 
It's interesting to watch the stages that this hobby goes through.

This may sound like a silly question but what is the attraction to bootlegs?.  Granted this figure looks cool but I never really understude the draw to them.

I personally like the fact that bootlegs epitomize the globalization of SW. It became a part of pop culture in many countries, even 3rd world or countires under communist rule. Some countries like Mexico were very poor and bootlegs were all that children could afford.

(http://www.toysrgus.com/images-boots/mex-vader-loose-1.jpg)

In other countries like Poland they were under communist rule and none of the toys or books were allowed to be sold.

(http://www.toysrgus.com/images-speci/polishboots/polishchart-ben-4.jpg)

In countries like  Brazil there was an embargo act so one crafty individual stared making figures out of lead.

(http://www.toysrgus.com/images-speci/model-trem/02-ig-88.jpg)

These are horrible and yet children in many of these countries were forced to play with them if they wanted to have SW toys. Sure they might be ugly but I love what they represent and that's how global SW really was, and is.

I'll suggest I'm surprised at how cheap many things seem to be right now.  My impression, and I may be wrong, is that in the run up to ROTS, prices were higher than they have been in the past week or two.  My most compelling evidence is Droids figures, though they may be an anomaly.  They were higher than normal up until this week, when lots have been offered and prices were lower.  That may just be a reflection of more being available on ebay at a given time though. 

But many of the last 17 have been relatively lower recently with Imperial Gunners and A-Wing pilots going for $30-40 loose rather than over $40 when I was buying (go figure). 

I've also noted some very low prices for trilogo figures of late.  Granted the cards may not always be good and one or two might be fakes, but still lower of late.

holy crap that sure went for a lot. I've never been clear on the thought process of getting such a high-valued item. does someone who buys a figure like this, only collect a small portion of the vintage, is this the person's only piece, and how does one finance such a big purchase. Obviously one is to have a lot of free to use money to make such a purchase, but damn think of what else you could by for 5 grand...
Title: Re: Wow
Post by: Bob Crane on June 8, 2005, 03:11 PM
It’s definitely strange, even if you grew up salivating for these little figures and love them to death. It doesn’t make sense to me why someone would spend that kind of coin on mass produced items, when you can buy stuff like original art for considerably less. Sometime back a few Chaykin pages from issue five (if memory serves) were auctioned for about $600 each, and I’ve seen very nice Infantino pages go for 2-3 bills… Chirst, you can buy a nice Kirby for the price of that insane Imp. Commander. Even within toy collecting it’s obscenely disproportional- a nice 50’s Nomura Robby will set you back maybe half of what that Luke sold for.
Title: Re: Wow

vintage LUKE SKYWALKER BESPIN complete BROWN HAIR -MINT FACTORY SEALED IN BAGGIE !!!! NEVER OPENED !!!! RARE !
 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5950350470&ssPageName=MERC_VI_RSCC_Pr4_PcY_BIN_Stores)

Now I don't keep up with the values of baggie figures, but it was my understanding that baggie figs usually cost about the same price as a C9 loose figure. So what is the story with this Luke? I can't imagine that anyone would value this at such a high price. I remember picking up this baggie Luke for less than $10 a few years ago with the intention of opening it, I just never did. Is this a case of the value skyrocketing or just the usual "it's Star Wars so it's expensive" BS?
Title: Re: Wow
Post by: Morgbug on June 10, 2005, 09:51 PM
I'd suggest it's a bit of that mentality and a bit of a price increase.  I know when I was hunting my brown hair Bespin Luke I had to let a considerable number of them go, simply because I wasn't willing to pay the price people were bumping them up to.  I think I paid around $20-30 for mine, though I don't entirely recall now. 

I think it's just an overanxious buyer grabbing a BIN.

dbk, yeah ive seen that crap all over the vintage ebay section for about a week now. when will people stop being duped by this stuff, this knowledge is freely available if you take the time to look. personally, i question any ebayer who has their feedback listed as private. perhaps this guy has sold repros a time or two...

Well here are 2 WOWs i am watching which i may bid or submit a best offer.

Blue Star (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5982349096&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1)

63rd POTF coin (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5982206576&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1)

I will probably submit an offer as soon as i figure out how much i can spend right now.

what was the consensus on this at scum? i find it a bit odd that the seller goes out of his/her way to mention how there are repros out there, but then doesn't make any reference to the lightsaber. just strikes me as a bit odd, that they would familiarize themselves with the repro situation, but not recognize that the saber is different from other vaders...

BEST Steal Since the $1 Vlix  (http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=1246972&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=2&vc=1)

I did check and the buyer did leave feedback for the seller and mentions that there are repros out there on some of there auctions. Strange but maybe they don't know anything about DT's. Best part I found is the past auctions mentioning "By order of the wife I am selling off my collection of Star Wars".

I REALLY have to commend the integrity of that seller. I offered him a pretty penny for it (no harm in trying) and he honored the auction with the buyer. Maybe decayedtoys can learn something from him.

Because of this thread, I randomly went onto ebay yesterday just to poke around. I don't have any carded vintage and, but plan to start when I have better cash flow. Anyway, sorry to not have the link, but I found a 12 back stormtrooper with a BIN for $50. It was in decent shape with rough edges, but in a case they would have flatted out. I seriously must have missed it by 30 seconds because it was just listed and already bought. :'(

Turns out, a guy was getting rid of some of his carded stuff and was listing a new one every 15 - 20 minutes. I kept refreshing, but I couldn't get any, as soon as they got listeded, someone was able to buy it before I could click on it. It was like trying to win tickets on a radio station. Among what he listed was a 12 back Leia in excellent shape for $110 BIN, Lobot, an At-At driver and Teebo for $50 BIN each and an Ugnaught in excellent shape for $30 BIN. Some day, I will get good deals like this.

Yeah, markpoon is known for making custom 21 back Fetts, a lot of flack from the vinty guys from RS. Don't blame them as he was making them without any marking that they were fake.

He was also looking for exact measurements for a Vlix awhile back too. I say he has a mold for a Vlix.

You can check his stuff out in his photo album (http://community.webshots.com/user/markpoon).

So is there anything inherently wrong with his Vlix fakes?  Not like I'll ever own a real one and his fakes look pretty good.  He's spreading them out in terms of sales, only one every couple of weeks, but it might not be a bad piece to have. 
Title: Re: Wow
Post by: Andy_R on July 8, 2005, 07:31 PM
I believe it is irresponsible to make high quality fakes without any markings to distinguish them from the real thing.

Many people do not agree with me, but I am thinking in terms of what's best for the hobby.
Someone, somewhere down the line will try and sell one of these fakes as a legit piece.  It has already happened with m. poon's Fetts.
The fact that Mark himself isn't ripping people off does not make him immune to criticism. 

Collectors will get ripped off because of these items, and that is not good for the hobby.
Title: Re: Wow
Post by: Morgbug on July 8, 2005, 11:50 PM
Thanks Andy, that's an excellent point.  And if indeed the Vlix copies are of sufficient quality then absolutely someone's going to try and pass it off. 

Would I be right in inferring that your position then is by supporting MP (if say I bought one of his Vlix figs) we are implicitly supporting the production of fakes since there is no way of marking them.  That's a reasonable stance.

I'd just like to own a Vlix reproduction is all.
Title: Re: Wow
Post by: JesseVader08 on July 9, 2005, 01:08 AM
I think if the fakes could be marked, such as molding REPRO into the bottom of the foot, it would make a lot of people feel better about them.  Just a guess from a not-yet-vintage-collector.
Title: Re: Wow
Post by: CorranHorn on July 9, 2005, 01:49 AM
it's been my observation, that even marking these repro items as such, hasn't helped to prevent someone selling them as legit. someone just has to forget to mention in an ebay auction that an item which is a repro, but looks so close to the real thing that an average collector wouldn';t notice the difference, isn't a repro and the damage is done. one of the many reasons I'm against the selling of customs/repros in general, it's just not going to end well most of the time....

Wow.  That's unreal.  Can you imagine $6000 for one figure?   :o

Is that a DT saber, or can you really tell for sure?

That is one sick price, but people will pay it for the little sticker in the case.

It's definitely a regular lightsaber, in the first picture you can see the point where the tip physically joins the larger shaft.

Hehe, I said shaft.... :P

Weird that the seller says this was a never before played with set, the figures aren't in Kenner baggies but rather in Zip-loc baggies. Sure hope that the buyer recognized it. Those sets were always cool and I would have loved to have something like them back in the day.

Yikes!  If you buy something from Cloud City, rest assured you are paying top dollar ... and there's no reason to believe you'll be able to flip it for profit.

On eBay and on boards like this.  :)  Some of the stuff he has is definitely rare (some of the POTF proofs), but not worth nearly what he's asking.  And something like a POTF Amanaman for $5000...laughable, at best.  Give me 25 of them for that price.  ;)

Hey, fellas long time no post...

I am in the process of refinancing my home since it has a lot of equity in it.  Will have some funds to complete some loose holes in the collection.

What do you guys think of this auction (http://cgi.ebay.com/Star-Wars-vinyl-cape-Jawa-figure-vintage-classic-nice_W0QQitemZ6049336291QQcategoryZ50271QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem)?  This guy resides in my same town and I asked all the typical quesitons and asked if I could come down and look at the piece.

You probably can't tell much from the pics...
Title: Re: Wow - Vintage eBay Auctions
Post by: Morgbug on April 5, 2006, 12:28 AM
Hey Matt,
Nope, those pics aren't much help. 
I'd love to see it beside a Ben cape for comparison and see if it matches too well.  Also can't see the texture differences at all. 

The length looks right though, at least at the bottom and it doesn't look to be cut, or if it is it's cut pretty well.  The collar size looks ok too.

The arm holes look nice and tight from what I can see on it, so that may be a good sign. 

I'll let the real experts decide though.  Getting a close up look to see/feel the texture and if you brought an Obi with you would give you a real good idea for color.  Good feedback on the seller too.  Good luck.

Well...

I stopped at the store on the way home, I did not want to fight traffic and come home first so I have no pictures.

My verdict is that it is authentic...all the signs were there.

1) One side was textured (zipping sound) on the inside, the other side flat
2) Color
3) Size
4) Fit
5) Texture

Has anyone heard of a fake meeting criteria #1 and still being a fake or is that real determinator?

No dice on selling it early, which I respect.  So I'll come up with a dollar amount I'm willing to pay and keep my fingers crossed.  It's hard for me  to pay a premium and it not be minty mint.

I'm hopeful that it does not go too high as the pic's are not too detailed and the description is less to be desired.  If I did not see the figure up close I would not bid on it with such a vague description and average pictures.

Thanks guys for the info and I'll let you know if I win.

Just for kicks, what do you think the auction will end at?

Sounds real to me.  I'm not the right guy to ask though. 

I think the way he's structured the auction, with the pics and relatively poor description you should be able to get a decent price, in the $150-175 range, which is still a bargain IMO.  My price was phenomenal and I totally lucked out it was real.

Well, it's out of the range I'm willing to pay for a ripped cape.  $183.50 with 20+ minutes to go.  If I spend more than that it would have to have the nob less jawa blaster and not have a ripped cape...

My wife was a bit dissapointed and offered to contribute but like I said I'd want the condition to be top notch.  The hunt for a vc jawa continues...

It's legit. Jordan is a known dealer with Kenner and other connections. This is a Kenner first shot though not a Glasslite figure.

The high bidder also happens to have THE most complete Vlix run in the hobby. Good luck!

Post by: JesseVader08 on May 31, 2006, 05:52 PM
I'd be hesitant too.  With 3 vintage pieces I'm sure the condition will be different on each one, so I'd want to see pics of each and be able to choose which one I wanted.  But with it being a multiple item auction, I'm not sure if you are "allowed" to do that - you'd have to put a lot of trust in the seller, which might be more than you want to do.  :-\
Title: Re: Wow - Vintage eBay Auctions
Post by: CorranHorn on May 31, 2006, 07:04 PM
I agree with Jesse, definitely ask for pictures of the specific item for sale as well as better pictures to boot. The ones in the auction are blurry and/or from a distance, so it's not easy to tell what damage could exist or even if it's completely legit.

If you're looking for more info on Lili Ledy Jawas, check out this article from the Archive including a neat poster put together by the Mexico SW Fan Club...

That's an amazing piece and was I believe to be the continuation of the 3 pack concept.

Yeah what the hell, has demand for a Leia Poncho carded really gone that far up? 
I've seen carded Leia Ponchos go for as low as $25, now $145 - things sure have changed.

Dale: thanks for the links on the multipack - I now remember seeing this on ebay, I guess the original buyer backed out so the seller has to try again. Interesting though that this time he starts the auction $3K more than what it went for last time...

I'm familiar with the seller, doesn't seem to have fake stuff so it may well be legit.  At the same time, what's Vlix worth?  It'd have to be $2000+ to make that auction worthwhile, the rest of the Droids stuff even in it's currently inflated pricing would be only about $500.

There were some Concerns (http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=UBB1&Number=1205866) about this seller over a year ago on RS. Answers were never given, but the evidence was there that something fishy was going on.  As Andy said bid with caution here...

Those seem......high. 

Not sure about the trilogo Jawa, though I was under the impression Madine was more pricey and that's with one less zero.  Leia is overpriced and for a ROTJ Fett, it seems high too.  But maybe because I'm not a fan of AFA.

evenflow,

Tom Derby is a well known "authority" in the hobby. Many people go to him for COA's as he has a highly regarded reputation, in part due to his ownership in Cloud City Collectibles. I can't say if that COA is legitimate or not, but if you have concerns about it I'm sure you could send Tom an email through CC to ask. Also you could check out AFA and the number provided to verify that they did in fact grade this figure if you're concerned about that as well.

Not very often you see an auction like this, a Star Wars lst Series Figures Store Display Header (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=004&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=140070029616&rd=1&rd=1). A very rare & unique piece of vintage Canadian history.

A good portion of the bidders I have seen thier names before or know them. I was watching this auction from the begining to the end & the last few seconds this header jumped from $129. to it's final bid.

Congrats to the winner & hopefully the seller can find the rest of the display. You were so close to having you're grail Ryan.  :-\

I checked the number on the AFA site & it's good but the thing that sends a red flag is the seller is a newbie with a zero feedback. It's a 7 day auction with just over 2 days to go, yeah me thinks the newbie factor has something to do with this.

I'd stay clear - you're not the only one who has seen it, and by the looks of it, no one is going to bite.

There's nothing more expensive that a good deal sometimes...and paypal will only do so much for you.

And of course, it's way overpriced like most BIN coin auctions are nowadays.  That 42 set shouldn't fetch much more than $7-800 tops.

There was a guy listing a full set of 62 a few weeks back with a BIN for $10,001 which of course didn't sell.  James Gallo is sitting on dozens of Cat IV and V coins for ridiculous BIN prices (i.e. $650 for a Creatures coin).  These sellers need to get a clue.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the A-Wing pilot only came with the black gun right?  If that's the case, why would AFA seal one up with the gray gun?

Yes, only the black gun as with the Imperial Gunner. Could be just the lighting or a bad reflection making it show up grey. But then again, it's the AFA.  ::)
Title: Re: Wow - Vintage eBay Auctions
Post by: Rob on June 10, 2007, 01:04 PM
Are they really that bad?  My newfound interest in vintage has me starting to learn about things I otherwise didn't have any need to know about.  AFA being one of them.  I'm not the type to ever send anything off for that treatment, but it's weird to hear that the 'authority' have such a bad rep - if that's what you're implying.

Title: Re: Wow - Vintage eBay Auctions
Post by: ruiner on June 11, 2007, 11:08 AM
I can't tell from that shoddy picture, but I'm inclined to believe that what you're seeing as grey is probably tape.

Yes, tape.  That's what the AFA uses to keep weapons in place on loose figure cases.

Title: Re: Wow - Vintage eBay Auctions
Post by: Rob on June 11, 2007, 11:22 AM
Well that's quite the scam then isn't it.  Charge people a bunch of money for an opinion, an acrylic case, and a piece of tape.
Title: Re: Wow - Vintage eBay Auctions
Post by: john todd on June 11, 2007, 05:48 PM
i think if you bought that figure the gun would turn out to be correct.  i would trust brian's toys maybe more than afa to either have the right gun or get it for you.

Post by: Morgbug on June 15, 2007, 11:09 AM
Well that's quite the scam then isn't it.  Charge people a bunch of money for an opinion, an acrylic case, and a piece of tape.

That sums up the whole idea for me pretty well.  I think it functions on the assumption that the AFA at least has half a clue, which they probably do, so you get a figure pretty close to what you're expecting.  Me, I'd rather pay a lot less from an auction with good pictures, but whatever. 

Plus I don't trust AFA.  A guy I know pretty well from the snowtroopers board sent in his Toy Fair Vader to be graded and is absolutely certain that the one they sent back wasn't his it graded so low.  And this guy isn't an amateur or new collector either.  He grades honestly and reasonably and has been collecting for a very long time.  Quite the vintage collection as well.  So basically AFA scammed at least one person out of a figure and I'd bet they do it more often than we'd like. 

How's that for casting (largely) unfound aspersions?

I'd love to have the Vader too, but $3800 is where I draw the line on insane Star Wars spending.

And I'm going to feel stupid when I buy Yak Face and a Blue Snag.

What's really unfortunate about this particular auction is that the figures shown in the box never came with this set when they were originally sold.

Unfortunately, the seller knew very well what he was selling. I had spoken with him about this before, and I also e-mailed him while the auction was still ongoing to encourage him to update the description to reflect the fact that the figures being sold with the set did not originally come with the set.

These 1982 Sears Canada 3-Packs *only* came in 2 different sets (shown below):

it seems like before afa you could get a vc jawa on the card for around that much.  i think the jawa is the same, so it being a 90 is not a big selling point.

That's actually not a bad price for the Yak, if you can say $400+ for a carded figure isn't bad.

Its really not. You figure if i paid about 100.00 for it in the early 90s, the price has not jumped that much. I think other figures have increased more in price than that one.

I have never heard of this version before myself.  However, I know the seller has been on ebay selling vintage Star Wars for a few years.  She seems to buy up lots of vintage stuff as well.  From her pictures, she has a lot of the harder to find items.  If this is the stuff she sells, I can't imagine how pristine her own collection must be.

That really does look terrible. You woul dfigure in the long run the tape would damage the thin plastic lightsaber.

They would have been better mounting a small acrylic sub-case next to the figure with two slots for the sabre parts. A lot better looking and surely the DT figures would warrant the slightly higher expenditure.

Not only the potential for damage but the tape will also probably dry out and..............well you know the rest  :(

Overall I give the set up a U10   :-*

I think it is time to sell up my baggie collection.
That is ridiculous.  This is not a rare figure, not by a longshot.   Standard U.S. released ROTJ-e baggie.

I know collectors love to throw around the term "Lili Ledy" just because something is made in Mexico, but people have to understand that these were mass produced and sold in the U.S. by Kenner. 
Hence common common common.

Isn't there a cross-hatch pattern of sorts on the inside of the legit coats?  A photo of the inside of it would probably help.  That said, it doesn't look pretty good from what I can tell.
Title: Re: Wow - Vintage eBay Auctions
Post by: DSJ™ on August 9, 2009, 03:23 AM
I have seen & owned Vinyl Jawa's with the cross-hatch pattern on both the inside & outside of the cape. Like Rob mentioned, better pics & more questions will help. If the cross-hatch pattern is present, does the cape make a zip sound when a finger nail run across it.

Wow, odd coincedence...I was just looking at that auction last night. Not sure what it is now, but it was over $212 at the time, so there are a lot of people who seem to think this is legit. There's a somewhat convincing blurb in the listing that attempts to lend some credibility, but I have to admit I have never heard of this particular variant.

Title: Re: Wow - Vintage eBay Auctions
Post by: JediJman on September 18, 2009, 06:17 PM
Its well over $500 now.  The blurb fromt he auction does help a little, but anyone could have written that.  "I know it's real and have known about it for some time" doesn't inspire a whole lot of confidence in me - having someone else verify it's authenticity would be a lot more helpful IMO. 
Title: Re: Wow - Vintage eBay Auctions

Nope, not fake. Check out the "Watch Out!" thread in the vinty section at RS. It's a lot of bling to throw down on this varition IMHO.

To each their own Justin but just about every other vintage piece posted in this thread probably has higher production numbers and many would have higher number still in existence carded.  Granted that may not apply to some stuff like a carded DT Vader but it is still quite rare and to me as someone who grew up when that film was in the theater, it brings back a lot of memories.  I am not about to pay thousands of dollars for it but I personally would rather own that than a carded VCJ.

Well, I don't think it's outrageous but it's certainly beyond my means. I definitely don't think that is too much money to spend on a toy in general though.

There was another out there just like this in the past week or so, not sure if it's still up or not, but it was well over 1000 dollars as well.

I'm just lookin' for a nice loose one for around $300  ;D

I think it's official.  I'm never going to own one of these. 

I went the repro-cape route a long time ago.  Sure it's not "legit", but $4 for a repro cape and $5 for a minty loose Jawa was much better for my budget than $300-800 for the real deal. :P

Hmm.  I paid about $150 for mine.  If they're going for that much, it just might be time to sell it. 

It's been fascinating to watch the prices of vintage stuff just continually increase, at least for most things not ROTJ (I blame the ewoks) to the point where I can see my carded collection dwindling quite quickly.  I'll just never finish out the 12 backs, plain and simple.

Its definately a custom. I recognize those casted legs from one I made years ago. He got the color completely wrong.

A:   The guy I bought this from purported to have been a Kenner employee and this was one of three that were made. I have received e-mails from a lot of you that question if it is the prototype or not. I cannot guarantee this is THE ONE, as I did not make it or watch it being made. I did take this guy for his word because of the other items he had. Please keep all of this in mind should you decide to bid.

You took the words right out of my mouth bro. I was hoping I could hang too but it looks like they will all be out of reach. Sucks too, these are amazing pieces.

I imagine it's probably a bunch of dudes like Seth Green bidding on these because I don't see how your average collector can afford to shell out that kind of money. Then again, if you're not married, no kids, who knows I guess.

I should have bought one a couple of years ago when I could have gotten it for less than half that. Still on my very short list of remaining vintage variants needed...

Just thought I'd mention this because if I was a lot more wealthy I would like to have known, but there is a UK seller on ebay right now with some pretty nice custom wave 2 figures of both Droids and Ewoks up for auction right now. All out of my price range but pretty cool to see.

1.5 days to go & sitting at 23,100.00. Chaa!

Tracey Hamilton over at the otherR site completed a loose set minus a few accessories. One hell of a set to complete & if you read down, James Gallo mentions who has what sets & what is missing.  Unproduced Droids and Ewoks (http://forum.rebelscum.com/t1110298/)  Even in Gus's prototype room (https://www.flickr.com/photos/toysrgus/sets/72157637755626234//), they are an awesome site to behold as well as everything else.

This salesman sample is graded by the AFA & being 1 of 1 known, who bloody know's what it will command. As a guess, would not surprise me if it tops $40k.

This is crazy.  I'm about to buy a new car and it's going to cost me a few hundred dollars less than this figure is about to cost (and probably thousands less once it's over).

That set of unproduced Droids and Ewoks is amazing though... any idea roughly how much a set like that costs to put together?  I'm assuming they're all real?

Real Rob... very real. As for a price putting a set together, ya better win the lottery. Best guess.. errrrr 250k give or take.. prolly the latter. Vintage has gone up a tad now & with proto's/pre-production stuff prolly commanding more.

$250K for a loose set like that?  They're really selling for an average of $15k each!?

Incredible.

Just thought I'd post this if anyone is interested. I know if I hadn't bought one semi recently I'd have jumped on this one. Sounds like it has a couple issues and isn't complete, but a great price for a "starter" one.

This may just be me talking to myself, but why are people fighting over this for $177 (and rising)? My AFA graded carded one was $40 less than that. No one else may care, but it made me feel good to "post" my confusion.

If you got a carded Fromm for less than $200, you just got a great deal is all! (congrats)

This is about in line with what I would expect, maybe a little pricier given that he is not complete.
Title: Re: Wow - Vintage eBay Auctions
Post by: Rob on July 13, 2014, 10:57 AM
If you look at completed auction for loose ones, they generally sell right around $170 - $175.  This one's at $177 with 20 minutes to go.  It probably won't move much higher if it does at all.

How does that happen? That "offerer" must really be swimming in cash to risk it or maybe figures if/when they see it's a fake they can get their money back from Ebay and it was worth the tiny odds it was real?

That's my best guess... they'll return it. 

That, or they'll take the fake and try to pass it off as real later to someone else to make a profit?

The other possibility, is that the buyer was dumb and trusting and thinks they just got an incredible bargain.
