I need some advice.
Thinking about starting à little MOC collection of THE first 21 relaesed in 21 back.
How much would this set me back knowing i dont want minty ones,but more near beater.
Wat would THE cheapest moc be and wat would be THE most exspensive moc be?

Any insight,advice and tips are more then welcome!

I thought this was a decent price - http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=5&Number=4394852&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=93&fpart=1#4394852

I think you could easily find each figure for under $100-150 and perhaps even less if you aren't so fussed about condition.

Most C5-C7 mocs regardless of character or film release aren't going to cost you as much as mint ones.

Bargain hunting is the key- stay connected and ask around, you might uncover some gems Smile

I know you want 21 backs but here is some relative 12 back pricing for non mint carded - http://www.starwarsforum.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4557

It shows that there are bargains out there on cards that may have issues but still display great!

Good luck!

I'm not up on my SW card prices but I think the only one you might struggle to get for a decent price is Luke, although of course it depends how fussed you are on condition.

I think a 12/21 mix would work well, its a nice compact set of figures and it might help you get a few more bargains by broadening your search.

Depending on how "near beater" you are willing to go, ie pop removed, I think with patience you could get all 21 for $2000

First off, I think that's a great idea for a small MOC run! 12, 20 and 21 backs are the kings of MOC IMO.

As far on prices, I think what Joe quoted and linked to are pretty spot on. Just remember that the 21 stormie is the rarest of the rare! So if you are aiming for strictly 21's he's going to be not only the hardest but most expensive. And its not even close. Fett gets the headlines, but the stormie is tops in that category. I "think" he was only released in Australia. Which makes it even tougher to track down.

Good luck! And keep us updated on your progress! Very Happy

I agree actually, good budget to have in mind, the slower you take it and the more you look the better your chances of coming in under budget.

The Fett may well be something you look at last but if you save enough $$ on your other figures you can afford to splurge on him (and yes get a 12 back stormy! good tip Chris)

Maybe slide that original budget up by 500$ and save the extra 500 AND add it to the money you saved on bargains from the 2k$ and you should have enough lol

I think you could get a reseal close to 200-300 perhaps, maybe a c5-c6 sealed one with some serious issues for 400?500? Anything north of a beater condition wise is going to hurt you.
