Hi all,

As this is obviously one of the main figures I still miss in my collection (together with DT Darth and Ben) I just wonder how hard it is to find one at a reasonable price. I mean, the Blue Snag is called 'rare' but in fact isn't that rare at all. Same goes for the DT Luke.

Ofcourse, I did not see many loose Vlixes yet, and I know the carded ones are mega holy grails, but how about loose ones ?

I;m just curious how many of you have one.

Cheers,
Martijn

I would hazard a guess that Gary Smith is the only one registered on the boards that actually has a production and pre production Vlix, these are still a few thousand dollar figures and are very rare indeed.

Gary was trying to sell his two for a while , here are his prices.

Kenner First Shot $4200us obo

Glasslite $3500us obo

Not exactly pocket change and I think the price reflects the numbers out there.

very very hard Razz I'm pretty sure a certain baggie collector eventually 'put together' a DT Vader (finding an inner saber is just short of a miracle)

I'm venturing a pure guess but I'd say low double digits, on par with DT Ben and Vader.

I also agree that there are many "rare" figures tha appear with amazing frequency. It's all relative. If you released, say 500,000 Vader and 1,000 DT Lukes then yes , by comparison that's 500 to 1 (never tell me the odds Wink ). But 1000 DT Lukes make it farily attainable.

I've only owned a hanful of items I truely consider rare.

Orange Hair Luke (I sold it anyway)
Harbet ESB Yoda (maybe 3 exist)

So I guess its a relative term

I think Gary Smith was selling a Prototype Vlix and a Production Vlix at the same time over on RS not sure they are still available as the thread hasnt been bumped in a while.

Theres a few FS on RS the first one below is AFA graded as well -
