Hey BFLV nice Fett but did you know the grades as if the bubble is yellow then most of the time it happened before grading and will get a 'Y' in front of the NM+ part?

No 'Y'? Then yeah guess the guy should have told you. I have a POTF Scout 85 and no 'Y' but was told of the very slight yellowing and expected with alot of the POTF cardbacks.

I am so happy to have this little piece of Star Wars history in my collection now....

It came with DT Luke, Chewie (with the green bowcaster), Leia, and R2-D2 (with a dark blue dome). Also included were a sealed baggie for the pegs, and three opened SW-A baggies (white horizontal text 'Made in Hong Kong', tape sealed, crispy). I am not sure whether these baggies are authentic for all the figures in the Early Bird mail away, but it doesn't matter too much as they are opened anyway.
I think for the Early Bird mailer, Chewie was packed in a SW-A baggie, and Leia and R2 were packed in SW-D baggies (black horizontal 'Made in Hong Kong', heat sealed, soft plastic). I don't know about the DT Luke. Anyone got some more info about this? Del?


Hi Dr Dengar,

Very nice EB set - congrats on the aquisition.

Regarding the opened baggies I suspect that they are all original to your set as it is certainly not unknown for all figures to be packed in SW-A baggies. The Luke DT will almost in every case come in a SW-A baggie unless it is the horrifically rare heat sealed version (SW-C). Chewie in SW-A is common, Leia and R2 are much harder to find and are usually in SW-B or D bags (Leia can also be found in SW-C - toughie).

Hope this helps.
Cheers,
Christian

My R2 arrived this morning safe n sound, really chuffed. The cardback no doubt is at least a 90 but as usual the bubble is anything between an 80-85. But sweet piece none the less. Very Happy

I'm actually not that impressed as have just discovered that the pic of the one he was selling, which was suppose to be mine, isn't. His sticker is slighty to the left more and on my bottom right of the bubble I have a small ding and his doesn't!!

I just want to add that I dont want to stir up trouble but I was under the impression that the one in the pic is the one I will receive as it's not stated otherwise and was meant to be a C9+

I've asked Toni about this matter and awaiting a reply.
