Sorry to hear that, but I've never heard smash and grab before. Did he just take the money?

Just an expression, auction was pulled and most likely sold elsewhere.

Thanks life, the hunt goes on......

Just gotta love when that happens, same thing happened to me with some Top Toys figures geek 
hopefully it shows up in the recent purchase thread. Out of curiosity why is this in the watch out section? Seems misplaced.

Not sure, I didn't know where else to put it Sad

What TT figures are you after? I know where there's a Chirpa, Logray & Yoda (missing belt) currently on the market?

I would have probably just put it in the chat section instead of the Watch Out section. It sucks when sellers end auctions early, but what are you going to do?

Nicolas,

I'd seen that article before but never realised it appears to be "the" figure off eBay. However his story about not knowing about the COO seems a little fabricated as it was mentioned in the listing.

Oh well I'm glad is sitting in the cherished collection.
