Is it an ok deal or should I not even bother?

Looks like a decent loose figure. I'm trying to get a couple of quality loosies right now. Just have no idea how these things should be priced.

Any help would be great!

Personally I think it's a good deal. Great condition with original blaster. Think thats proba bout right but I'm no expert. Maybe someone else can shed some brighter light on it ;-)

I am quite cheap and $20 bucks for a loose Boba is too much for me.

I paid $8 I think it was for a mint loose one and I already had a blaster that cost me about $4

It's not silly money but its overpriced, you can get C8+ complete Fetts for $12-15 easy

I was going to say the same thing. $20 seems a bit spendy to me. Grant it, it's in great shape, but that's still a bit much. Plus with $3 shipping and you are looking at a $23 figure.

If I were you, I would contact vintage_city on these boards and see what he has. He always has loose figures and at great prices too!

Thanks guys. That's what i was looking for. It did seem a bit high once shipping was all said and done. So vintage_city is the man to talk to, huh?

Thanks. I'll check it out.

When piecing together a loose set the golden rule is haggling Wink you have all the time in the world because there are so many figures out there so don't rush and buy smart

The thing is if you save $5 on a Fett then you can buy a Dengar or a Snaggletooth with that $5, every saving counts Smile

Good way of thinking! Do you guys generally trust ebay? I kind of get a bad vibe reading about it here. Are there other good resources online to buy?

The classifieds are a great resource. When I did my loose set I rarely bought a figure with Buy It Now. Even if it's market correct, it's generally at the markets peak. With a little patients, you can find one, as good, for less.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370428885053&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

Is this legit? I need to know what to look for with the baggies? Any tips?

It's not incredibly hard to heat seal a baggie but looking at it , it looks okay. I think the amount of plastic under the lower seal. It looks like a SW-D baggie.

Here is a handy link to baggies:

SWCA Baggie Feature

Obviously the seller has tremendous feedback which helps (but doesnt mean it's an absolute).

Oh and personally unless you specifically want a Star Wars (not ESB of ROTJ) era baggie it's overpriced IMHO.

There is a graded one in better shape for not much more and a similar one, with a Buy It Now, for less.

John's correct in that it is a SW-D baggie and it looks legit to me too. The typical price on just the Fett in the baggie is right around $100. At least from my experience.

You do need to be careful though as I have seen some fakes created of this baggie. I'll see if I can dig up the pictures.

Edit: Here's the fake baggie. The seller was using them with custom rocket Fetts, but that doesn't mean ones with regular Fetts aren't out there.
