$14,000 Boba Fett

Postby Ian on Tue Mar 16, 2004 5:08 pm

Would you pay almost $14,000 for this piece of plastic?

If you're wondering, this is one of the rarest Star Wars toys around. Someone will buy it for that price.. just watch and see.

I'm not a Star Wars fan or anything, but that's pretty damn cool! Talk 'bout the ultimate unique collectors piece!

How big is this Boba Fett that shipping within the US is US$150?
The picture makes it look very small?

It's a 3 3/4" action figure. Even with the plastic thing around it, shipping shouldn't be $150. Brian's Toys always rips you off any way they can. For $14,000 they should have free shipping.

For $14,000 they should deliver it to your house in a limousine, or maybe even helicopter it in. :roll:

Yeah, it was a BS buyer. 0 feedback, etc.

I noticed the 0 feeback, but thought it might be a collector who never had a reason to buy on ebay before.
The thought that it might be a BS buyer was the other possibility that crossed my mind.

I guess I should have realized that based on the "not a registered user"
next to the high bidder's now former ID...
