Is £45 delivered worth it for a ROTJ speeder bike mint in a sealed box? It is perfect in ever way?
Thoughts?

Yes it is defo mint. Hope its not a repro box Shocked .Its off a repritable seller off ebay with 100% feedback and hundreds if not thousands of feedbacks so I guess its genuine.

What do you think go for it or not?

That does seem about right for one in a perfect case fresh box.

If you don't mind a little shelf wear, I just posted one for sale in the classifieds. Very Happy

I offered £40 and he came back with £45. I may stick at him and see what happens.

I might take you up on that. I will let you know if I get it.

Jay I agree. I to would really prefer it open so I can play with it. Its almost pointless owning it sealed as you will never see the fine example.

I will have a go I think and let you know.

Thanks everyone!

The funny thing is when I first noticed it I made an offer of £55 which he turned down Laughing

TBH im glad he accepted the £40 though as I dont have much money spare again this month so the cheaper the better.

Wonder if I should get it graded? I can never open it so I dont see why not. What do you think? I think it would be about an 80-85?

If its sealed Jimmy its graded as sealed, the condition and the grade are only reflections of the outside box and condition of the seal, if its opened its graded under something called the "Qualified" scale, which means it was inspected for correct contents and original inserts etc

How do they rate the quality of the seal? one side of mine looks perfect. the other looks like its been picked at but then left.

Im not the best person to ask about that Andy one of the lads into AFA may be able to answer your question better.

Do you have any pictures of these tape seals?

Page 3 and 5 show each seal.
Should I try and remove the price tag? or leave it?

Just receieved all my packages today. One of which was the speeder bike. It is a fantastic box. Not one crease and it looks the same as the day it was made.BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is a knife cut the length of the side of the box and another running off from it half the length of the box on the opposite side to the price tag (See pics and you will notie now I said.) I never saw it on the pics and the description on ebay didnt say either.
CLICK ME

What to do is the question?
Im happy with it except that. I cant get it graded with it as it would come back rubbish. Im sure the person knew this and that is why he was selling it.

It cathes my eye every time I look now.

Any suggestions but bear in mind that the guy was very kind and lowered the price substantially from his original price and he was very nice to deal with.

How much did you get off the price andy because in my opinion it was priced about 30 pounds too high for a mint sealed one. Let alone for one with a rough price sticker and apparently damaged to boot. I'd send it back for a refund mate if I were you and wait for another. They pop up all the time.

By the way, if the seller's nice he'll understand and let you send it back. When I look at the description he does seem a bit dodgy though. First warning the buyer to look at the pics carefully and then saying that looking at the pictures you should keep in mind that reality is better than pictures most of the time.
