I was tempt to bid on the general madine and the b-wing but the seller have some bad reputation from the rebelscum watch out section, so i pass.I start collecting ledy figure since january and my knowledge is limited on these.I check often the guide done by Dr DENGAR that is the best reference.

Looks like i miss something :I am stupid:

Hi Stephane,

I am happy that the information on TIG helps you while collecting Ledy figures.

I think I also have to clarify something, maybe that helps to take away some of your confusion.

In general:

Ledy figures and their accessories can be very tough to distinguish from their Kenner counterparts. So yes, it is very likely that sellers make mistakes here sometimes. Personally I think everybody is allowed to make mistakes. In the end, I don’t judge people by their mistakes but by the way they deal with them.
It has already occurred to me a few times that I received Kenner instead of Ledy items, even from respected sellers with a great reputation in the collector’s community. Each time it proofed to be unintentionally, the mistake was acknowledged, and I was fully compensated. Therefore I would still buy from these sellers with 100% confidence.
Actually I still regret being too harsh on a seller once, who really couldn’t help either, as that sparkled a lot of negative energy for both of us. That was a long time ago, when I just started collecting Ledy. I learned my lesson now (see above), and luckily we have worked out things recently. Very Happy

More specific on psboy2:

I knew there were some rumors about him, but I like to form my own opinion, independent on what others have to say. So I gave him a chance by buying a few Ledy figures a while ago. The ‘experiment’ went well, so personally I don’t have a problem with him whatsoever.

I hope that helps.

Cheers

Marco


Thanks for the clarification.You are right, i should do my experiment myself and not take opinions from others.

Next time ,i will be more wise Very Happy

Thanks for sharing, AJ! Some figures ended pretty high indeed!!

http://www.ebay.com/csc/jedikikin/m.html?LH_Complete=1&_ipg=50&_since=15&_sop=13&_rdc=1

Emperor: $159 (in very nice condition w/o paint rubs and original staff, but still a lot of money or did I miss something?)
Klaatu Skiff black hood: $154 (no paint rub on the nose, but there some on the hand and back of the skirt)

I think the next items ended with pretty OK prices:

Complete Jabba Hutt playset MIB: $315 :Drool:
Imperial Shuttle MIB: $ 255

Teebo: From the pics it is hard to see whether the hood, axe and horn are Ledy accessories. The differences in plastic colour are so subtle, you have to hold them in your hands and compare them to Kenner. And I didn't want to ask the seller for comparison pics to do not draw too much attention to the auction. So I took the gamble with a relatively low max bid of $75, and I won (ended $65). My guess is that others were thinking exactly the same. AJ?
If it is a compete Ledy figure, it is a pretty good bargain. Otherwise it is a bit overpriced for a loose Ledy Teebo with Kenner accessories.Very Happy


BTW: I didn't bid on any of the other items.

Curious did more TIG members win some of these items?

He's describing the box and how it is on excelent shape, he found it with 6 LL Laser cannons still inside, the previous owner kept one so he has 5 and the box, the box has a printed date: 27/05/1985 and a description of the item (laser Cannon) it can hold up to 12 cannons, all 6 cannons where open by the previous owner but they are on Mint condition, and to his knowledge this is one of a kind LL item as no other shipping box have been found.

well he says more but this is like the main idea Wink
