Are we talking with the YPS comic? Without the comic is he still considered a YPS? I hear them referred to as that all the time, but have seen them called PBP also and without the comic it is just a scarred coo.

Thanks for all the replies.

No comic & no action rifle (is that it lol) comes with regular rifle. Yeah the YPS title is a bit annoying lol I was a bit confused because I knew they were addressed as PBP. I had about 6 these in my collection all different scar Coo's but sold em! Sad

Thank you for the price gauges, so I'm thinking $150 is over the top lol.

Oh ya that it is. Now if it had the Action Force weapon then $150 would be fair as that weapon is almost impossible to find, I have been searching with no luck so far found lots of white and silver ones but no black.

Larry that rifle can also be found in an action force weapon pack I think.  I haven't looked in a good while, but those used to come up from time to time.

Yep the YPS label shits me to tears Suspect
But single scar, double scar, smooth scar, 'soft' vs 'hard' torso which ones which??? NONE are YPS exclusive. But yeah $150 is way over the top. I can see round hole cape going for $50 & a nice figure for $50. I did see one with action force gun sell for 'stupid' money. Wasn't long ago David T was selling the AF packs for like 15 pound!!!

If you look for action force weapon packs, you can still snag be cheap sometimes. One of these enemy packs sold in November for $35 usd.

$150, guys get with the times with an AF rifle these are fetching £150-£175 on eBAY at the moment.

As for the black rifle, I think there is still one available for £40'ish if someones interested?

Think is hard torso snowtroopers are common as muck in the UK, with cape is tricky to find, the action force gun even trickier.

I bought this weapon pack about 18 months ago for £15(I think) when I was on a mission to get a loose YPS gun, but could not find one in my price range, a kind seller on Ebay gave me a silver one for free as a placeholder  Very Happy Only problem with this weapon pack is I don't want to open it  No The hunt continues  What a Face
I believe it also has the same figure stands that were in the Palitoy Death Star playset cheers

Good resistance skills Andy. Yes you're right the action stand is the same one as what came with the Palitoy and Toltoys Death Star playset and Darth Vader Star Destroyer playset.

I haven't looked in a while June, but I am guessing they are more than $1200 as that is what I saw one sell for quite a while back.

Sadly I never had the Death Star playset but a school friend were I used to go a lot after school had one so spent many hours recreating battles cheers
Out of the Palitoy Death Star I played with and the U.S. one with the Dianoga figure, trash compactor with little foam pieces ect, which was released first scratch Or were they both similar times in different country's unsure
And which do you prefer out of the two ?
