Episode 49: Dengar

39329: Dengar

It’s been an interesting move from the 31/32 back figures through to the figures first released on the 41 cardback. It was fair to say that almost all of the first 11 figures of the ESB line are pretty well coveted, with Hoth Han, Snowtrooper, Luke & Leia in the Bespin fatigues and Yoda all the subject go many foci. Even FX-7 seems to generate a high level of interest . However the figures first released on the 41 back (in the main) are where the collecting gets a little more niche, and competion for items really starts to drop off. In saying that, though, I’m often surprised at the level of sales for these “background” figures, and there we’re enough Dengar MOCs sold to produce a good report this month.

And with Dengar being a bounty hunter, his interest is bound to be a little higher than Ugnaught. I did manage to almost complete a theoretical run of Dengar with the month’s data. There aren’t a lot of graded examples out there, which I wonder if linked to the fact the bubble crushes pretty easy, and thus any overall grade will be impacted.

Enough of the background chatter, here is the data for the month (fair to say there was little inflation in these pieces relative to some of the other figures we’ve seen in recent months).

One of only a few graded figures in this month’s data. The quality of this card is probably worth the $200+ price tag, he’s not an easy character to find with a clear uncrushed bubble.

I haven’t gone back and checked, but this feels like one of the cheapest (if not the cheapest) MOC’s I’ve listed on the blog. This isn’t far off pricing for a modern MOC (well in Australia at least).

All in all some pretty cheap offerings, if Dengar was in your interest set. His debut card seems pretty cheap, given a lot people like the debut card when completing runs of MOCs this was a little surprising. Though offer less cards are also often coveted, and thus the 41A with its Survival kit offer might be a reason for slightly subdued interest.

The few graded MOCs seemed reasonably priced, given the bubble quality, though the 41C (AFA75-Y) was probably $50 or so over priced, given the yellowing of the bubble. The 41C AFA75, was a pretty good deal at $122.50.

Always like finding these MOCs with the Coin offer sticker and multiple price tags. Looks like this guy spent some serious time warming the pegs.
