Stefan did you buy this one? I had seen something about it on rs but thought that both had been sold or something? In my opinion this is in worse shape than your backwards arm one, but who knows. There are so few sales it is hard to gauge. I would guess $900 to $1000 just based on paint wear and lack of rifle. Maybe a bit low but the one that didn't sell on eBay was listed at $1800 and had been listed multiple times and still did not sell there, and then the only one I remember in recent months before that was the one you have and like I said I think yours is nicer.

Yeah I noticed one didn't sell after multiple listings on eBay at either $1500-1800. that one was better condition as well.

Update on Vlix....

Head broken and glued on
Damage to paintwork on chest
Finger missing

As a rough guide I paid $1400 for mine, so this one?

Me personally, I wouldn't pay more than $750 for it just because of the head being glued on. If it weren't for that, 900 -1100 is what I would be willing to spend on it if I were in the market but I would hold out and spend the 1500 -1750 for a nicer condition one with a movable head.

Then again, I don't know what a near mint loose one would fetch.... slightly at or over $2000 US for a nm?  scratch

Head glued on is a 'biggy' really, your might have the wrong same arm twice Stef but at least there both complete, plus many would see that as an 'error' figure and something unique, and lets be honest it could be an arm swap, but it's Vlix not Weequay, it's not like people just have a spare lying around.
All that said, it's still a Vlix, and many would settle for an absolute beater in an otherwise mint collection just to have one, but still, condition and unarmed I'd go with the Jay on this and say $750 - $1000 max.

Tight limbs, however they are slightly off white
Minimal paint-lose
Correct saber, but missing tip

I aquired this Chewy recently - its the first time I have ever come across a LFL 1977 Chewy and , oddly enough , I got it shortly after reading this thread : http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t6297-is-this-chewbacca-coo-rare

I got it in with a large lot of figure I purchased that I had no idea it was even in there Cool 
 
He has pretty snug joints but alot of paintwear - he is in pretty good condition otherwise though .
 
Given the heavy paintwear I am sure its not worth alot but I would guess he is worth a little more than a typical beater Chewy since it is a pretty uncommon coo .
 





 
so guys , whats a fair market vaule for this figure scratch 
 
anyone have a idea of what chewy gun variation these figures came with  unsure

I won mine in an eBay auction advertised as 'Rare L.F.L 1977' so it was there in plain sight for everyone to see and I payed 7 quid for mine which is roughly about 12 bucks. Mine has some paint loss on the white bandolier also.
 
 
 
 
It is definately a much harder Chewbacca to find, but it's one of those things that, not everybody knows about I think so the price isn't too great, like the dark ginger Luke Bespin, I can tell you that it's harder to find than a DT Luke or a ginger Luke farmboy, but know one else knows that so they sell for peanuts... well at leat the five I've seen in 12 years have Very Happy
 
 
I'm still not entirely sure where this figure fits in either (card release wise) so not sure about the bowcaster variation it should come with. L.F.L appeared as the copyright holder for every figure from the E.S.B line right to the end. So it was probably a new mold produced sometime after the original SW Line, at a rough guess scratch

I'll give you a guinea for the Chewie James. Very Happy 

In old money (pre 5th February 1971) we had 240 pence to the pound, shillings, farthings, threepenny bits (rhyming slang for the s#*ts) half penny's etc. scratch 

I'm so glad we went decimal.
