We all know and love the "Your latest vintage purchases" thread, so how about one show casing items you missed out on?

Now and again i could kick myself for missing out on items which i'd like to buy but fail. In the past i've missed out on a MOC Top Toys Chewbacca & Darth Vader's, Several Glasslite Chewbacca's (my achilles heel) and various other bits and bobs.

My latest was the below, so i'll start the ball rolling....

Top Toys Yoda

Some images....

Worst thing he dropped the price from $350 when the winning buyer asked him. My Brazilian contact tried but he wouldn't ship it out of Argentina, I asked around for help and failed. It was a sad day Sad

@AJ can you combine the topics?

How much is a top toys yoda worth? I guess I missed out on one as I saw one newly listed on ebay but did not know the value and I dont really collect the line yet. By the time I came back they had sold it for $100. The buy it now was $129. All of my biggest misses have been on ebay. I was offered a case of figures for $125 but turned it down and it sold for around $300 a week later. I didnt think there was anything in it worth going to high and frankly thought that the 125 was high but in retrospect I should have bought it and taken a chance I guess.

Congrats on the win. I was unsure if it was a good price and by the time I got back it was sold. I am glad it went to a collector and hopefully you can get accessories for it. It looked like a very nice figure and cape though. Very Happy

I thought it was just fishermen that talked about 'the one that got away'. lol!

Like everyone else, I've missed out on some great pieces over the years, but the items I didn't miss out on more than make up for it. Wink

Last year I missed out on two items on the same day. There was a loose Uzay Headman and a POCH carded Rebel Commander. Since I was vying for both I wanted to be smart and his smart but I ended up having to put all my eggs in one basket and ended up bidding all on the Hamdan and getting sniped

Twas a sad day

I've certainly missed a few deals, and cool pieces in my time. I think the one that
really burned the most was a vintage Vader FS. I missed it when it was first discovered,
then again when I was outbid in a Toy Shop auction. First shots from the 1st 21 are tough
enough to track down, and Vader has always been insanely tough. (even up to now, there
are only 4 known, and I've been collecting for over 20 years)
Those two misses cost me, in both time and money. I spent nearly 13 years tracking it,
then cost me nearly 2x's what it originally sold for. While it had a happy ending, feeling
that "burn" for over a decade was ... well .... not good Wink

Great thread!

I missed out on:

- A boxed Lili Ledy Darth Vader TIE Fighter
- A loose PBP pink face Cloud Car Pilot

Both items went for a much higher price than my maximum bid, so what I was prepared to pay for them.

So I don't feel too bad about them. Very Happy

In the last few months i missed out on the following POCH/PBP items, due to my lack of knowledge with the spanish line of figures.

They all ended up selling for roughly 1/3 of there current market value Sad

White Bespin Guard
Bossk Fat Lips
Lando Black Neck

Most recently I missed out on a simple little part I was looking for. I just needed a cockpit glass for the Falcon Canopy. I threw down a bid, only to loose by a mear 50 cents!

One other item I just missed out on was a Micro Collection Wampa Cave. It was loose but complete, and ended at again 50 cents more than my bid. Something tells me I better start going a little higher!

Some things I missed out on recently surprised me because they were just little oddball things like a small collection of Harbert SW adverts, a ROTJ magazine poster and an MPC model kit. Nothing major but I was still a little bit gutted for a while lol.

I don't think that Bossk is the same figure. Either way, I wouldn't buy it. Wink
