Ouch Mark, that did go for a great price. If only your ebay search had worked sooner you could have got one of the US guys to get it for you Sad And looking at the winners' star rating I bet it's getting flipped.

James,i know mate.

I'd have gladly paid twice what it sold for,i've noticed when you set up an ebay search,a few things tend to slip through the net! Rolling Eyes

Oh well,there will be others! Laughing

Ouch! I'm sorry to hear that.

I had a close call on an ebay auction recently as well. However, I got a second chance offer and jumped on it. But I do know what it's like to miss out on something like that.

For future reference, if you run across anyone that won't ship outside the US, you can have them ship it to me and I'll ship it over to you. Very Happy

If you can't get a hold of Chris, that goes for me too. I've helped out a few people here and on SWF with purchases before.


That is one really nice shuttle for an excellent price. Shocked

Thanks for the offer Chris & Shawn,its much appreciated! Cool

About the searches. Items tend not to come up when the seller doesn't ship to your country.

You should just manually do a newly listed items search for vintage star wars shuttle on eBay.com every day.

Unlucky, DS, that was a nice boxed vehicle, working too.
It's all a bit swings and roundabouts when getting lucky on Ebay sometimes. Something else really cool will come up soon for you mate I'm sure Smile Smile

Unlucky Mark!

I have had that happen to me loads of times so know how you feel.

If you do have enough time next time round do ask them! Some sellers can be persuaded to exempt you from buying restrictions if you lucky. Also, as Chris and Shawn pointed out too there's some excellent lads across the pond that will help you too!

To make sure you get the US only auctions included in your radar, log into eBay.com search for the item you want and save the search - you should get an email everyday with new listings.

When you see something interesting in the daily email, make sure you log in and browse on Ebay.com as you won't be able to see the sellers listings on eBay Uk even though you know he selling something.

Better luck next time buddy!

Cheers guys! Cool

It's not the end of the world & there will be plenty more.I'm more pissed off that the saved search didn't pick it up! Twisted Evil

Craig & Emiel,in addition to checking my saved search,i'll have to check the newly listed items each day too!

I came across this one whilst checking newly listed items(been watching this a while) but it doesn't show up on my saved worldwide imperial shuttle search.Strange!

On this topic, there was very recently (this week) a boxed complete working Imperial Shuttle for sale on RS at $100.00 (thanks AJ for the headsup coz i missed it). Unfortunately when the seller was stuffing around trying to get me a shipping quote (I don't think he bothered) after we agreed a price, somebody local to him contacted him, so he sold it to them instead. Poor form i think.
I don't ever think i'm gonna pick one of these up. Evil or Very Mad

Sorry to hear that Tim,that's was a shitty thing to have done to you!

AJ also told me about the same shuttle(& mentioned if you hadn't bought it already)so i contacted the seller who said it had been sold but he still had it listed for sale! Rolling Eyes

Don't worry mate one will turn up eventually & if i see a nice one,i'll let you know.Your need is greater than mine!Very Happy

I freaking forgot to bid properly Sad This is the second one I've missed. I also passed on Marcello's other Glasslite vehicle. But it is OK because I've had a few wins too Smile

Reviving an old thread:
Missed out on this,gutted! Gamguardbank
Damn it- $140 was a bit rich for my blood Sad
It's an Adam Joseph plastic money box. Quote from Gus & Dunc's book: it's " rare & in high demand, it was thought to be unproduced until about 15 years ago, since it was not sold in the US. Limited numbers were available in Australia & Canada. ( One of the authors actually passed up buying one during a trip to Australia in the 1990s, and is still bonking himself on the head with a plastic lightsaber over this gross collecting faux pas) "

So AJ. In the unlikely event that I run across one of these at a yard sale here in Canada, I should just consider the 5 dollar asking price too much and send you a message that I saw it?? Wink But seriously. If I ever come across one. You'll be the first to hear about it and it'll be going your way.
