Has anyone got any buying advice? What to look for?
Or does anyone know someone who has one for sale at a good price.

Thought I would start to add some new figures to my collection its been a while since I bought any.

Any thoughts welcome.

Thanks
Andy

Hi Andy long time no see!

Im not the best person to ask on bluesnags as i havent watched them in a while but they are pretty common and can be found quite easily im sure someone on here can chime in with a rough price guide Smile

Why not try Darlington car boot sale a few lads have pick up some vintage bits there lately Smile

Cheers Jay

Thanks Wollf. Trouble is I want a mint one so would prefer to not have the boots worn but I see what you mean Laughing

Hi Jay.
I havent been to the car boot yet at the stadium. My mam has been and she said it was ok. Never thought to give it a try. I usually get some figures from boot sales (Sedgefield) but they dont often come with weapons. Its a bit of a lottery to find a nice example.

Has anyone ever seen a blue snag at a car boot? if they have they are one lucky sod! I heard stories in the early 90's of Yak faces being sold for 50p Shocked but never blue snags.

Not seen them myself im assume you have more chance of blue snags in the US.

I think it was Andy (Geordie) that found a minty small head Han the other week though!

Chances of a Blue snag in the wild this side of the pond are non existent, it would have to have come from a collector who bought it from the US.

The Blue Snag was a stateside figure in the sears creature cantina and appeared on no card, not even in the US.

Yeah thats what i was thinking Joe defo more chance of finding one in the US in a yard sale over there or similar.

Although they only came in the Sears Creature Cantina they are pretty plentiful on ebay so they dont take long to pick up.

You can get pretty decent Snags for under $100 if you put the effort in to checking ebay a lot, sometimes risking a low feedback seller (although thats risky!)

I never paid more than $70 for one, the first one I had really was a steal and was about as mint as you can get, I wish I had that back tbh, I still know who has it and he might sell it back one day but it'll definitely cost more than I want to pay!

Since Blue Snags can be found on Ebay constantly, my advice is to just bid away! It's not like an Orange Luke or something that you might not get another chance it. Pick a price you like, and just bid until you win. I'd say you can get a nice one around $100-$120.

BIG REMINDER - Check the weapon. Only one smuggler blaster works with him!
