Thread: Pop-up Saber R2D2

    Pop-up Saber R2D2

    So Ive been trying to get my hands on the final pieces for my vintage collection lately. I just picked up a near perfect death star droid (which ive been looking for for about 6 years - holy cow those things dont age well), and ive decided to keep with the droid theme and try to pick up a pop-up saber R2.

    These things appear to be commanding about $400.00US for a nice one with a saber, and $300+ for ones in a condition I dont even want (on ebay)... The heck is that?!?

    Is that actual market price these days, or would i be getting bamboozled if i bought one for that amount?

    That is unfortunately the market these days.

    AFA 80 is going to be in the $350-$450 range and an AFA 85 is going to be $500+ on most days.

    A non-graded loose example, in 80-ish condition, will run you $300-350 easy. I'm sure with patience, you could find a nice example for $250.

    Tough figure - Best of luck in your search.

    Thanks Mike.

    One of my favorites in the "Last 15" POTF run. Definitely go for it.

    It's a beauty MOC.

    In other news, a fairly nice, ungraded, loose R2 with pop up saber and no coin just sold for $611.00 US on eBay.

    Glad I got mine when I did.

    I paid $60 for mine + AFA grading fees and shipping. All in all I'm about $100 in on an AFA 85. Glad I bought mine years ago. I think I'll sell it when it hits $1k value in a couple years.

    My all-time favorite version of my all-time favorite character! I paid a little over $400 for mine a while back and have since had it graded (came back an 85). I know the prices continue to climb on this piece but if it is something you want, I think you will be happy to own it at any price (well not any price, but you get the point ).
