View Full Version : Doesn't look like anyone's buying, but it's worth a shot...

I ran across a couple of oddball items today in my stuff.

Micro diecast painted Han Bespin (firing) and Lando. These are in their original little bags. I'm willing to take five bucks for both of them, but if that's way off one way or the other, will someone please let me know?

Two vintage Dagobah playsets/Yoda's Hut. I pulled the foam off of both of them because it had completly deteriorated. Both have the stands for Luke and Vader that you slide by hand. I have one R@ base, but a prong is broken off (still have the prong and base, in the original bag. It broke in there.) ALso, one of the trees has the rock you push down, and the little sticks go up to "levitate" the cases (cases are missing.) Finally, I have the tree limb/rod that is used to elevate Luke. I know these aren't worth a lot in this condition, but with some TLC, a customizer could make a great looking diorama for Yoda/Luke/Ben/Dag Vader/R2. I'm asking $20 for both of them, and a couple of bucks for shipping. I'll pay the rest.

Finally, I have an assortment of ships. I'm not sure if it's a complete set or not, but there's about 8 ships. They are the same size as the X-Ray ships, most likely from the same molds, but they are painted. You know, twice as big as the Micro Machines, and half the size of the Action Fleet. I remember that they were available as a set in a clearance store, and I only ever saw them once. If anyone can shine some light on these so I can make an appropriate ad, let me know. ***MODERATORS*** I know this last part violates the classified guidelines, but I don't know how else to go about any info about these ships. Please let my post remain for a couple of days, and I'll remove the query,

Thanks all.

Normally, I'd just suggest you ask your question over in the proper forum, Galoob, but since I'm a moderator here and there, the answer to your query is the JC Penny exclusive "Trilogy Gift Set", goes complete for about $40 mint. Here's an ebay auction for one (http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=582525709) that just ended, and I'd be interested in buying yours when you decide how much you want for 'em (and find out which ones you do and don't have, same with stands).

No one ever seems to want to buy what things are really worth, even 20% below book price AND even if it's dead mint with no flaws. But people sure are willing to buy stuff for half off or something. It's kinda the reverse of scalpers. They screw people over by charging double value. I can't afford to sell the extra vintage figures I have for half what I paid for them, and since they're mint and complete I shouldn't have to. Fair market value is still FAIR market value. So I just don't sell any. They're cool to have anyway. http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/smile.gif Someday I'll get what they're really worth.

That's it! Give me a day to go thru the ships I have. I'm spending all day at my son's track meet, so tonight hopefully. Thanks!

RocketFett, please don't take this the wrong way, I understand that you're frustrated about this situation, but may I suggest starting a new thread about this in Wuher's Cantina (aka MISC) or maybe POTJ? The BHC classifieds aren't really for discussion and non-transaction posts, but you clearly have a strong opinion about this which deserves more recognition and discussion, so I think you may want to post your concerns and talk with others in a more appropriate section. As always, if you want to discuss this, or anything else classifieds-related, please feel free to e-mail myself or any of the other classified moderators (our email addys are all on the main Classifieds page).

JT, no problem. Sorry I didn't mean to detract from the thread. It is just frustrating after a while. http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/smile.gif

That's cool, RF. I left the door wide open for it.
I hope you get luck and get one of those Jeremy figures for your set. Good Luck.
