The months trickle on as we vacillate between background character and main character in different outfits. Leia Hoth is a great figure. The cardback is great, it works so well with the actual figure standing next to her. It’s like that was the photo they used to sculpt the figure from.
I wasn’t sure what I’d find this month, a main character but just not sure how hard she is to find. I’m sure there will be a few crazy prices – given the state of the market.
Let’s begin …..
Empire Strikes Back
41A AFA80 (C75/B85/F85) $306.88 – eBay listing
41A AFA70 (C80/B60/F85) $200 – eBay link
Now here’s a few 41D’s. The price increase as the quality improves is quite marked ….
Ungraded (clear bubble) but rough card $82.88eBay link
Ungraded (yellow bubble) $150 eBay link
As we move to a graded version we get a decent price bump …
41D AFA80 (C80/B85/F80) $365.66 eBay link
And now it gets crazy … Got to love the AFA85 pieces !!!
41D AFA85 (C85/B90/F85) $1,075 eBay link
So we’ve gone from under $100 for an ungraded, rough but clear bubble to over $1k, having straight 85’s or better really pushed the price on this piece. Personally I thought the $360odd for the AFA80 looks like much better value. Each to their own.
45 AFA80Y approx $299 – eBay listing
47A ungraded $177.50 eBay link
Return of the Jedi
65B ungraded $182.50 – eBay link
77A ungraded $139.99 – eBay link
77A ungraded – eBay listing
AFA90 NM+ $99.99 – eBay listing
All in all a nice selection. The AFA85 41D was pretty crazy, but that’s the theme these days – high grade + main character = big price. But with all the hype and big prices, there are still a number of decent pieces at reasonable prices to be had. Certainly researching, and not being hung up on an “AFA85” piece will put you in a decent position to pick up pieces at a much more affordable price range.
Till next month……
