I recently bought some rare Trilogo figures from France, which got damaged during shipping.
It´s an AT-ST Driver and a Leia Organa on french Trilogo Macao stickered card.
I know the AT-ST Driver is rare on a french Macao stickered card...but I think the Leia must be uncredible rare.
Please to all the Trilogo-experts...tell me the value of these figures in this condition.I made a couple of pictures to describe the condition as best as I can.
Click on the picture...and there will be a lot of more fotos showing the card and blister real close.

Never seen a Leia tri-logo version! Looks a great buy! Where is the extra damage to the card - looks semi-decent already!

I posted up on RS about these Mike- I don't mean to be a dick with the values but bubble cracks are never going to increase the price - if you get offered more than I suggested (if u are selling i mean) then go for it, but the sad truth is most people won't pay full price for anything cracked.

Hi Guys,

Yep, Tri/Meccano's bubbles are extremely fragil. Just a little crunch and the bubble cracks. Plus the fact that this kind of bubble seems to yellow with age and it ends splitting at the first impact.

It's a shame for the Leia. She's indeed a very hard to find version with the back plastic sheet... Bubble seemed to be crunched with the inevitable cracks. I just hoped for a moment it was the Leia i sold years ago... but it's not.

I sold the Leia with other Trilogo cards so i can't give you a real price, but i would pay €500 if it was mint. With a cracked/cruched bubble the card devalues a lot and you can be happy if someone offers you €100...

The At-St driver is a "more common" card even if it's a 1st gen Meccano release. A very interesting card in my opinion. Just sad that most of the people don't value these cards as they deserve... Maybe another €100-€120.

Mike, this is just my opinion and i can be totally wrong. There's people for everything and every prices. These are incredible cards that didn't shows up as often as i would like. Leia is just a Gem...

My 2cents...

JC Very Happy
