How do you know? I'm not doubting you at all, I'm just curious how you can tell. I know nil about baggies, so I couldn't tell anyway. But I would like to know what to look for.

Hi Rob,

Let's just say the baggie types are all wrong.
The baggies used in re-sealing these figures had not been introduced yet in 1978.

The blue Snaggletooth only came in baggies with the General Mills "G" logo on it, and therefore, all figures that came with the Blue Snaggletooth, in the Cantina Adventure Set only came with the General Mills baggies as well...

Correct Baggies (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6049495280)

Good job, Andy. Contacted the current bidder and seller.

The seller added this to the description:

"Note : I have had an email from a fellow ebay member stating these may not be originally sealed? In reply i have had this set for a long time and if they have been resealed then its an invisible job and the figures were never played with or used ete, as they are all 100% original and 100% mint! To my knowledge only the walrusman bag has come loose all others are sealed! Please bid with confidence, Thanks!"

Just because the baggies may be from a different run doesn't mean that Hammerhead and Greedo are resealed. Perhaps this set was pieced together. Give the seller the benefit of the doubt. He may not be aware of the Snaggletooth. He seems honorable from reading his added statement.

Okay, I should have said there is a slight chance that the Hammerhead and Greedo are original seals.
But considering that Blue Snaggie is a reseal I am not willing to give the seller the benefit of the doubt.
