We were all pretty amazed by the value of 2012's TVC Ahsoka figure. In the last year or so, wave 1 of The Vintage Collection was skyrocketing too. While some figures definitely command a premium still, we were perhaps more surprised by how many of the past high market values have plummeted significantly. Check out these auctions and see if you can fill any holes with these recent price drops! Click any thumbnial below to be taken to that figure's auctions.

Goodness gracious! Look what 2012's The Vintage Collection Ahsoka figure is going for on eBay. It's ridiculous. And if you think these are just "asking prices", just check out COMPLETED LISTINGS to see that these asking prices are pretty accurate.
UPDATE: Who is the dum-dum who bought this for $100?

Well, I'd be lying if I didn't think these eBay finds were interesting. An eBay seller from Malaysia has found three bootleg The Black Series Episode VII figures in Cambodia and has put them up for sale. If that wasn't a tall enough tale, the three figures look like all-new sculpts and, get ready for this, are loaded with premium ball-jointed articulation unlike the 5POA figures Hasbro makes! Does anyone else find it odd that bootleg figures, which should cost next to nothing to make, are actually better than the Hasbro figures in terms of articulation? Notice the odd light-up feature too!
UPDATE: We have just learned these are actually 6" figures, hence the super-articulation.

Hopefully this isn't old news for you. It's been a while since we've linked to the eBay auctions of tunghori. But to our big surprise he has listed loose 2010 TVC MagnaGuard (VC18) figures that are complete. This hard to find figure is often at the top of collectors' lists to even obtain loose as it wasn't widely available when originally released. He has it listed for a very reasonable $12.99 loose. You should also check out his other auctions as well. He has a ton of figures from The Clone Wars line for $5 and under and other gems. This is definitely worth checking out!

With special thanks to our friends at Yakface.com for the alert, The Black Series 6" Emperor Palpatine packaged figure has made its way to eBay which likely means it's not too far off from reaching the USA.

Legendary eBay seller tunghori has JUST placed a ton of cool figures up for sale on eBay including the upcoming The Black Series Darth Vader (ROTS) and Wedge Antilles (Snowspeeder Pilot).

Don't feel like you want to risk missing the SDCC exclusive TBS6 Jabba The Hutt with Salacious Crumb? eBay seller viperskingdom has one right now up for auction. It shows boxed images but the description says loose. Check it out! Hurry though because this auction ends in less than 24 hours from the time of this post.
Check out this ridiculous eBay auction. Unless one is getting a full case of Darth Sidious figures, I don't think the suggested start price is remotely close. Actually, it's so preposterous it it laughable.

You saw our earlier report today, but anyone doubting why Hasbro SHOULD indeed flood the market with hot Star Wars figures need to look no further than this eBay auction of 10 TBS 6" Stormtroopers with a starting/recommended bid of $500 which is $300 higher than what they should cost. The madness that HasbroToyShop started today with a "one per lifetime" maximum of this figure is enraging, and once scalper scum get a whiff of that craziness, prices will only go higher. Don't think for a minute that limitations will help you secure one for your collection. Only by Hasbro constantly releasing and re-releasing these hot figures will put an end to this nightmare. Hasbro should have the right to pull auctions like this if you want my opinion! Oh, and better case assortments will only help. But who knows when that will improve (in this scale at least).

With special thanks to JTA Facebook friend Nick B., he has alerted us to eBay seller sinodolls who has over 30 loose Bastila Shan figures (minus right hands) for $7.99. If you can swap out another hand, this is a great deal. We didn't post this to tease you with an incomplete figure, but browse his auctions for some awesome deals. THere are some cool things available.
Posted by Paul | January 15, 2014 at 05:18 PM EDT |
The same seller also has the Rebel Soldier (Echo Base Battle Gear) (VC68) figure for $19.99! Currently there are four left of these figures!
UPDATE: SOLD OUT!

JTA staffer Chris M. alerts us to the fact that eBay seller viperskingdom has the new The Black Series 6" Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues) up for auction. He has also pointed out the paint job on his face, which of course should cause some alarm in any normal human being. Hopefully this is a rough inital factory pressing before the machines were calibrated. Mamma mia!

The 2010 Legacy Collection R2-D2/C-3PO Geonosis Arena Showdown set rarely shows up on eBay, and if it does, it goes for a premium. Because of this, we thought we'd let you know that you can purchase both figures individually for under $5 loose. Links for each figure are found by clicking the images below. If you need to know why you NEED this duo of droids, then click HERE for more!

Wow! Look at all the great stuff eBay seller viperskingdom has on eBay at the moment!! Some new TBS figures and some definite rarities!
Posted by Paul | August 24, 2013 at 10:41 PM EDT |
We certainly understand why packaged figures are so important for Star Wars collectors, just look at The Vintage Collection. But when we see eBay auctions like this, it really makes our heads explode. Whether this is a real factory error or not, or just someone taking really bad advantage of the "separating card backs" issues, even if you did win this auction, are you really going to take a chance on it crumbling apart once it's in your own possession? Gee-whiz. Please learn how to appreciate these great figures outside of the packaging. If you don't, you're really missing out! See the madness HERE. Special thanks to Eli H. for the head's up!

This eBay seller is unbelievable! HobbyStock also has multiple loose red bandanna Kithabas in stock for less than $7.00 each! He also has a lot more cool figures in stock with reasonbale Buy It Nows too! Click through for more! Let's see how long it takes for this auction to make front page news "elsewhere" too...
This Battle Packs set must be a freak of nature because I have never seen or heard of it until now, but check out this AFA graded Capture Of Tantive IV Battle Packs set from the 30 (77-07). Do you notice any figures that don't belong inside of it? Check it out on eBay. And get ready to laugh over the price!
I haven't done the math so who knows if this is a deal (most likely NOT a deal), but regardless, we're not sure who would be willing to plunk down this much money on any loose collection on eBay. That being said, there are some really rare gems in this lot of Star Wars action figures. If you want an instant collection, this may be for you, but we would suggest writing the seller and asking if he would accept a whole lot less for it first!
There is a gorgeous Commander Wolffe collectible on eBay for a very reasonable price at the moment. Does anyone know what this is? Is it a custom? Special thanks to Haris I. for the head's up! Check it out!
Wo! The Shadow Of The Dark Side Cyborg Darth Maul from the Comic Packs line has hit eBay loose with FREE shipping from Hong Kong. Read the auction carefully, but this may be a great chance to secure this super-rare figure for your collection!

eBay seller viperskingdom has a fantastic lot of five (5) Ewoks for $20.99 with FREE shipping. For both customizers and teddy bear lovers alike, get this family of fur balls for a very reasonable price! More than 10 sets are available for purchase as this goes to print! While they're not complete, there are some harder to find Ewoks in this lot including Romba and Leektar. Click through for more!
