    I don't understand buying these kind of things when they hit crazy prices. Yeah fair enough when they're worth a few hundred and you know they're gonna go up in value given long enough but surely this kind of thing peaks?

    Is this Jawa thing really going to get much more valuable than it is now? (Genuine question)

    Damn, and it's not even a cape. Although a vinyl cape from 1978 would have fallen to dust by now.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    I thought that but after a quick search unless they were all boxed and pristine not so much, there are loads of figurines tht go for a few quid.

    My arctic Han Solo and Tauntaun are not going to fund my retirement unfortunatley.

    Sadly not, but I did get to stroke my AT-AT.

    Possibly a euphemism

    Definitely a euphemism

    I remember these being rare back in the day when it was released.

    I had the fabric cape version.

    Unfortunately, all I have are happy memories of playing Star Wars with the figurines, using a large piece of polystyrene packing as a male do Death Star / Hoth.

    Oh wait, happy childhood memories vs anal retentive packaging concerns ???

    only flaw is some light edge wear on the punch hole, the card lays straight the Bubble is crystal clear and the figure is perfect in every way

    That is an absurd amount of detail over packaging.

    /insert emasculating geek joke here.

    You buy it because you want it in your collection. In that sense it's invaluable to you. I doubt the bidders are thinking about resale value any more.

    To be honest, the cloth cape looks better anyway.

    I wonder what these types of people think moments before death, how they obsessed over packaging condition. Maybe the seller has wised up, got a grip, and decided to sell, for these reasons. Heh..

    Maybe they just have an interest you don't share and an budget you could only dream of?

    Just imagine the inner turmoil between keeping it in the packaging and posting an unboxing on YouTube.

    It's always risky. Wasn't there a MTG card that lost $15,000 worth of value?

    yes and probably yes.
    2500 isn't that much, so probably no.

    2500 just means more to me than a platsic toy that cost's around a dollar back in the day.

    Look at this, a pocket watch, it's worthless, $10 dollars from a vendor in the street. But I take it, I bury it in the sand for a thousand years, it becomes priceless. Men will kill for it, men like you and me.

    Damn, what film's that from? Don't want to google it but I know it's from somewhere.

    Hmm...

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    That's truly a man who's opinion we can all trust for cinema.
