Episode 30 – General Market update

Pete’s July update

Item: Falcon ANH MISB
Why: In the world of Star Wars Vehicles size does matter. And in the case of the Falcon it’s probably one of the most sought after and ultimately well done vehicles of the series. Demand is always really high for the original series of vehicles in sealed boxes. With the X-Wing and Tie Fighter demanding $800-1000 consistently for MISB versions it’s not far off that this piece brought in nearly $3K.
Rarity (Scale of 1-10) – 7
Price (Scale of 1-10) – 7
Price of this auction: $2750 – In line with condition and value today.

SW – Falcon MISB

Item: ANH Store Display AFA 85
Why: Keeping with the ANH theme we have a great example of an original store display from the era. The bell shape was very popular during the original run and even into the ESB era. The grading on a piece like this would run a pretty penny due to the size. Overall a very cool piece and worthy of mentioning.

ANH Store Display AFA85

Item: ESB 9 Pack Catalog Mailer AFA85
Why: Moving onto the ESB line we have a very cool and unique Catalog Mailer 9-Pack. It’s a great selection of figures featuring only figures from the ESB release. I really like the casing job that AFA does on these, they are so tough to display on their own so it really helps make it easier. Overall a really nice piece, there’s probably only a handful of these out there.
Rarity (Scale of 1-10) – 8
Price (Scale of 1-10) – 4
Price of this auction: $961 – Seemed a bit high for mailer prices but it’s in great condition and extremely rare. eBay link

ESB 9 Pack Catalog Mailer AFA85

Item: ESB Sealed Micro Tie Bomber
Why: The rarest of the all die cast vehicles rarely comes up on eBay or in the general community. I’ve always been intrigued with why the vehicle had a Die Cast but no 3” version released.
