I still think my best bargian was finding an Uzay Vader on the bay with original cape and repro saber. The seller who was selling it was a new member and even though he advertised it as Uzay Darth Vader, it did get any bids. I had my sniper set for a low amount because i did want to take a big risk and to my suprise i won the item at the starting price as i was the only bidder. I was amazed, as the startting price was really low and then to my suprise i did actually recieve the figure, wich i thought was never going to happen. It all looked good and as described.

Sadly, later on i sold it on here to fund some other purchases and i know it changed hands once more, now it's even up in a raffle.

I am not suprised it scored an AFA85 as this Uzay vader looked really good, to bad it's missing that original barn red saber. I hope to see it get completed once by one off you.

cheers, Dennis.

Well there are a couple of ways to look at this. Trades and outright purchases. Ive made some great buys , but some incredible trades. What Im most proud of is I started really collecting in 2008 so I don't have any crazy number becuase it was in 1995 or something. That's not a dig at anyone who did, just saying my purchases are recent.

Some that come to mind right off the top:

ESB 3 Pack - $242
Italian 4 Pack - $260
ESB 21bk Canadian Fett MOC - $449
Baggie DT Luke - $250
Harbert Vader MOC - $202
Orange Hair Luke - $20
DT Luke loose (2 of them , for $58 and $125 respectively)

Now everyone forget this when and if I ever sell these lol!

My best deals I got was a boxed loose Falcon minus the jedi training ball for under $20 and a "prototype" Pre-school Ewok for under $8 (still not sure of the story of it). A lot of loose figures and cases which included several Ledys, Blue Snag, and rare ESB vinyl case for $425. There was a few others on top of that.

As for non Star Wars, a lot of prototypes for $2.95 BIN that included a prototype of the unproduced Waterworld female figure, unproduced Congo figure missing its left arm, and several pieces from Doomsday from Superman comics.

Mine would have to be my MIM ROTJ MOC Vader which I later found out is a Ledy figure.

Total cost - Traded 2 modern "TVC" figures to a friend who has no interest in vintage or even trying to find out values of anything.

I only collect loose figures, but I've scooped a couple of O.K bargains, I won a Han Hoth on Ebay that looked, from the really badly taken picture, that it could be the moulded legs version, won it for just shy of 6 quid and it was.

Once I was looking for a Alien poster on Ebay that my mate used to have on his door, ended up stumbling across a set of figures advertised simply as "toy aliens" and whacked a bid on, and won them for 99p as the only bidder, the set of figures where:
Hammerhead, Pruneface, Chief Chirpa, Barada, Amanaman and Destro ( GI Joe )
They weren't in great condition, but not too bad either, I sold them all on, and got about 80 quid I think.

Also, the blue Master Replicas FX Lightsaber in the picture ( Anakin ROTS ), I got it brand new for 20 quid in a Woolworth's closing down sale. Thanks for that one Global Recession!

I'd have to say my greatest bargain was a Canadian Transition Rebel Soldier - only $50. I bought a few figures from that seller but I was absolutely blown away when I saw that stickered ROTJ logo.

My greatest bargain so far has to be trading one Mexi bootleg for a bunch of Polish unarts and 1st, 2nd adn 3rd gen figures. We both got something we wanted really bad.
