I didn't realize Leia was worth so much (http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-Star-Wars-1977-PRINCESS-LEIA-100-Comp-w-Weapon_W0QQitemZ200007399802QQihZ010QQcategoryZ502 81QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem)

This happens from time to time. The winning bidders has a zero feedback ...

much?? it's about 20 euro's that's not much for a nice white, complete leia???

c'mon guys not everything is $1???? (if you want $1 items you should buy that potf2 crap)

it kinda seemed a bit high. The average going price on ebay for these leias is like $10.

I sold a complete leia awhile back just like this on ebay that ended at 43.00....Collectables + Ebay + uneducated buyers = $$$$$
Also people can get caught up in bidding wars and don't know when to bow out. It's easy to do...I've done it plenty of times. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif ~Steve

I also think when someone really wants an item, sometimes they'll pay whatever is necessary at the moment. I once bid over $300 US to try to get a Madine Tri Logo cardback (the auction had some other goodies as well), but I was outbid, thankfully. If I'd been looking for that item for longer than I have, I might have gone up to whatever it took to get it. However, $43 for a Leia! That's just crazy http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif Congrats to you.

this is totally OT but is Madine Trilogo rare? I've seen them for pretty low prices on ebay I think. Is there more then one variation?

If the cape is not ripped and the weapon is original, I dont think that $29 is that far-fetched. Normally this figure would sell for about only 20, but 29 is not a stretch IMO.
