Someone just sold their Episode 1 collection to a local shop. I got to take a look before they went out on the floor. Picked up 9 figures I didn't have. Got all four battle droids (clean, dirty, shot, and slashed), as well as Chancellor V., Yoda, Jar Jar, Ki Adi Mundi, and a Gasango + Pit Droid.
Only need about 13 more to complete my collection.
What figures are you after gar0u? I am selling my whole E1 collection as part of a need the money drive for new DSLR... I have most figures on card, some rare like Sio, as well as those accessory sets. LMK what you are after. I am in the UK, but happy to post.
Thanks, I was about to get rid of some regular US ones at a yard sale in the morning, so maybe I'll hold some back.
The Tri Logo ones I figured would be of interest as I bought them all when I lived in the UK.
Yard sales aren't a place to sell Star Wars toys unless they are undesirable crap you can't rid of on the forums. Usually people constantly low-ball you to the point of where you sell a 7 dollar figure for a buck.
Good luck on selling the Tri-logos. "You're gunna need it..."- Han Solo
I have a bunch of .0000 Darth Mauls, a Darth Sidious, a few other carded figs, and a Deluxe Maul I've been sitting on since I bought them new in '99. I've been thinking about just getting rid of them but I see that trying to sell them now is difficult at best. Does anyone think that when Episode I is re-released next month there might be a wave of renewed interest in the "original" figures?
Scored the Naboo Royal Starship for $83 shipped on ebay. Got it in the mail yesterday. I have to say this is an amazing piece! The play features are pretty impressive. The ship came unassembled in the parts' original bags but without the droid and the vulture fighter thing. I can't say I really needed them anyway, the starship itself was what I wanted.
Not an "acquisition" per se but my mother bought my 5 year old nephew an Obi Wan Naboo figure for Christmas. He was very excited! I thought it was cool that she bought a figure some 30+ years after she bought my first one for me!
MOC Captain Tarpals, for around $5 shipped off Ebay. Don't know what happened to my original one. My favorite Gungan, and it doesn't look like he'll get a resculpt before the end of civilization. Still, it's a very well-done figure for its time.
