[quote="hellhippie"]just arrived ...
a lily ledy klaatu thick fur glossy black boots variant


I love the ledy skirt on that figure.  Where do you find all these great things to buy?  I check ebay and this board and one other place, but I must not be shopping in the right markets.  You guys find all kinds of cool foreign papers, rare variants, etc.  

Btw, if you are looking for a blue spray painted Boba variant, one just popped up on "the auction site" with a make an offer option by the seller.

A silver graded 85 one was sold for $4,000 USD a couple of months ago on the POTF Coin FB page.  I wish I could have gotten that one.

I'm still looking for a silver 63rd... hint, hint Razz

That may sound high if you don't follow the star wars market but to me sounds in line. Prices are up right now and I don't know if we will see a decline any time soon.

Do you have any black palace blasters? I heard you need to trade human souls in order to get any.

Bill - congrats on the latest loose variants. Gotta love the thick fur Klaatu. The Yoda and IG-88 are cool too cheers

Lejackal - good work on Luke Hoth's saber cheers and always nice to see a Luke with snap cape. If you get a moment can you update this thread with any numbers/marks/stitching you see on the press stud please?

Picked up this C-3PO off ebay. Seller claimed "stiff joints" and nice paint. I agree with the paint. But he can't even stand on my desk without falling over. Glad it was only $10 shipped. The head and arms are stiff. Legs... not so much. It's really becoming a mess buying stuff off ebay these days.

That's a bummer dude.

Yeah Ebay is almost a crap shoot now on stuff. Still, it looks nice!

That's a good lot of pencil toppers. Is that Leia original? Looks cast in yellow and for all this time to still be holding the blaster?

I was thinking the same thing. Leia is still holding her blaster after the passage of decades and a few shipping trips! Cool.

Believe it or not, yup. The card is a disaster but it's legit.

You guys forget Leia has the best shooting ratio in the Star Wars Universe. She knows how to handle a gun

@beachboy19 - Nice paint on C3.. but it's a shame about the "stiff joints." Is it an eBayer you normally purchase from?

@DarthBerizing - Excellent Leia! I agree with the other guys.. she must have a death grip on that blaster. I broke my neck checking out the pencil toppers.. but they're awesome!

Nah, C3PO just seemed like a good deal at $10 shipped. Plus, I was buying a Vader to get the saber from the same seller so I went with it.
