We are the only board that doesn't have a conversation going about the upcoming auction from Sotheby's auction house from a fashion/clothing guy. Here is an article about it.

http://vintagestarwarscollectors.com/sothebys-to-auction-tomoaki-nagaos-vintage-star-wars-collection/

Does anybody think they may go for something? I figure since every other major board is talking about it, this isn't really outing anything. I am really wanting the Canadian takara walking r2 but afraid this will go well above market so am not planning on bidding. Lots of really great items in it.

If someone feels that putting this here is outing something I can remove it, but since it is pretty much everywhere except our board I figure most of the big players for these items has likely already seen it.

I'll hear about the auctions after they end- would be too tempting to 'watch live'

I'm going for a couple of items but I seriously doubt I'll win them.

To quote some random movie

A lot of really great items... Good luck to all of those who plan to bid.

Sotheby's + Nigo + Toyhunter + TFA Hype/Christmas = $$$$$$$$

This auction will attract the casual collecting 'whales' and I imagine most (if not all) of the items will sell at a very inflated premium. It'll be fun to watch... What a Face

I wish I'd not looked!! I would like so much of it but can't afford any of it, a few nice Bossk items there, maybe I need to find some people who want to team up and help me bid on the other profs that it comes with.
Good luck to anyone who is bidding.

Not really enough found to make a difference in price and desirability. How many loose fett harbert cardbacks are there. I think around the same number. Funny thing is, I saw a harbert fett cardback sell on eBay, but it belonged to blarth is memory serves. Oddly the droids must be more common, but I have yet to see a droids fett cardback. I only semi look for the cardbacks as it isnt a focus for me. Would like to get quite a few though if I could.

Ahhhh the Droids Fett... white whale. Late 2011 I passed on an opportunity to buy a complete DROIDS MOC set in beautiful condition for $3,000.  Shocked  /Hijack

Yeah.. Rick Springfield... this auction will be a pleasure to watch! I wonder who else this auction will attract??

There are definitely a number of items in this auction I'd love to get my hands on, but they're simply out of reach for me right now.  Maybe some day!

My favourites:
Canadian 20back, 21back and Transition Fetts
POTF Yak Face
Revenge Vader Proof
Wind-up R2
Canadian 7pack
Regal Jawa
42inch Chewie
JEJ Signed Saber (it'd display so awesome with my signed Vader case  Cool  Cool  Cool  Cool )

Good god, I'm starting to drool...  Shocked
