Why is it a box variation?

I would say somewhere in the $40-$60 range, as the box is quite rough, but I may be off here.

Wow, the devil is in the detail. Twisted Evil

According to SWCA the version with "/" is the earlier version.

I can't find anything about its relative rarity, I mean '' /'' vs ''&''.

The box with the "/" is suppose to be rarer from my understanding of it. But Marcos price range is about right. A minter box would run around $85 compared to the one with an "&" which would be around $65-75.

I would have thought a sealed probot would have an inflated 'U grade' value Mad & may bump total value up around the $100 mark.

jawdrop $300! Someone is smoking way too much crack. Just because it has Star Wars on it, doesnt mean its made of gold. Thats one thing thats turned me off of buying anything the past 6 months, prices that things go for. Its just plain stupid these days.

I have to disagree guys. Its a sealed box. It's going to be in hundreds. Maybe not $300 , but certainly in triple digits.

I'm still looking for this playset in opened unused condition if anyone knows of one. Not too bothered by the / or 'and'. Very Happy

Hi Emiel,

I let you know when I see a set.

Do you know what would be a good price estimate for the box shown above?
