    $7? yes, worth at least $20-30.

    I am amazed people ask things like, "did I do okay? ," on so little money spent. $7 isn't enough for a sandwich. Better to limelight since it was a find in the wild for near nothing and it works.

    Good find, enjoy it. You didn't mention color or show item, but if it is near perfect it could be worth 2-3x what I mentioned above.

    edit: value was based before pics of contents. Revised guesstimate $75-100.

    Looks to be in amazing condition, I think you did very well, grats! They should replace the pic of the radio control R2 here on RS with yours, haha. Their example is pretty beat the heck.

    For $7 why not....looks like its in really good shape too. I miss going to garage sales....that's how I found a lot of goodies when I was a kid. Seems like garage sales rarely happen around my area at least due to eBay,Craigslist,and Facebook groups...

    That's funny. I've never looked at that pic on the archive. How many vintage collectors do we have in this community and that is the best example we could come up with?

    ^^^ i agree (the 12" jawas got to him before the pic was taken)

    nice score on the R2-D2 as well, i would have thought $30 is very conservative for that toy in that shape. in australia you'd be looking at $100 easy.

    My MIB radio control R2 is one of my favorite items in my collection and yes it's worth much more than $100 to me!
