I was just nosing around completed auctions and found this :

http://cgi.ebay.com/The-Black-Hole-MOC-Humanoid-CARDED-the-real-Deal-RARE_W0QQitemZ220094391783QQihZ012QQcategoryZ1169QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem#ebayphotohosting

Damn, that's a huge price!

Peace,

Chip

Fools and their money....

I think that particular figure was really rare in a line that didn't last very long to begin with - the memory gets foggy with age...

But 6 G's for an action figure?!? I gotta wonder about that being legit.

It looks legit but I am still skeptical if a transaction went down, that seller has been flogging that piece for years and believes it to be worth double.

I think it's worth around $2k max. I mean, it's not even graded (even tho I hate AFA and the whole grading thing) plus there MUST be more out there.

Peace,

Chip

I was gunning for a 2k bid and got blown out of the water. I have a friend with an AFA one he's considering selling and I tell you I think I can get it for a lot less.

Okay, where should I make out the check? ;)

Down the road you'll simply HAVE to find one for me. Puh-leeeze!

will do, hopefully I find two. I hear stories on Rebelscum of people trying to sell carded humanoids at Star Wars shows and it makes me crazy.

Hey, can one of you guys explain AFA to me? I've seen the grading in Toy Fare, but who are they, how do they grade, how much, etc.

Everytime I read about a "graded" toy or comic, it sucks out another part of my soul.

Hrm...well, that gives me hope then. I'm sure we'll both have one within the next year or so. :D

Peace,

Chip

I agree 100%. I hate the whole 'grading' thing.

Peace,

Wow...a tremedous amount of money for an incomplete loose one!

Amazing!

Peace,

I'm not really surprised, I live in Canada and I've only ever found one or two of these. Except for when I was a kid and saw a whole endcap of end run BH figures for a buck, sigh....

As for grading, I don't get it personally. Many would likely tell you how great it is but i've never been able to get my head around it.
