Went to a swap meet today with only 5 vendors because of rain. One guy a bin of loose Star Wars figs. Mostly potf2 and ep 1 junk, but hidden in there I found a legacy battlepack Lt. Renz. I didn’t have him and he was in perfect condition. $2! This is one of the coolest, most random deals I have ever found. Nice to check off a hard to find figure for $2
Good for you. You now have the biggest hunk of junk in the galaxy and the best Star Wars toy ever made. (In my opinion!-)I picked up the Legacy big Millennium Falcon, used, for $200 USD yesterday. Everything works perfectly, it's in mint condition, and 100% complete...even has the Dejarik holochess pieces. I was pretty thrilled with that!
Just this month I found Dyer at a comic shop for $12.99. His eBay prices are insane. I jumped on it.Was the only way to get him from that Endor battle pack? The one with Luke and the Ewok glider. I don't think I ever saw that set personally.
congrats!! I have been looking into How to complete mine,it’s inspiring to see someone has done it by piecing together alternative figure cardsI came in here to announce a long and hard-fought accomplishment: the completion of BG-J38. It's impossible to find one for less than $100, and the entire EU wave is unearthly expensive, so I've been pursuing it piecemeal. I got the legs with his alternate sources, R2-D2 (Jawa Capture) and Utris M'Toc. Then I scored his head and right arm loose mint, together for $20. I waited a long time for the next piece to fall into place, which it finally did when Chewbacca (Falcon Pilot) showed up with his torso as an extra, buy it now $25. With that recently arrived, and the end in sight, I checked every shirtless Darth Maul just in case one had an unlabeled BG-J38 left arm, and I found one that did. Buy It Now $25. In the mail now. The total price spent probably adds up to... around $100. But it was much more satisfying this way. Plus I got four other figures out of the deal.
Thanks! I also just ordered my last piece for HK-47. This one was a b!%$#. I already got the head & right arm back in '08. I didn't have much luck with alt-sourcing the rest, but the chest and legs are easily found loose-- you just have to pay the full price of a figure for each. The big catch was the left arm-- it's basically impossible to find. I have yet to see a loose one on eBay, after months of keeping tabs. Tarados Gon is a figure I also want, so I splurged on a carded one to finish it off. I still managed to beat the asking price for a loose complete HK-47, though I was lucky not to face the aftermarket on those first two pieces.congrats!!
