Insidious Darth Sidious eBay Auction

Posted by Paul | June 28, 2014 at 11:37 PM EDT |

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).

More Insanity On eBay!

Our friends at would call this a "totally ridiculous" auction and they would be right. Click through for the craziness! Special thanks to Darth Chuck for the alert!

Incomplete Bastila Shan For $7.99 (But She Is Missing A Body Part)

Posted by Paul | February 09, 2014 at 12:05 PM EDT |

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.

The Black Series 6-inch Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues) On eBay

Posted by Paul | December 06, 2013 at 07:50 PM EDT |

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!

Get Two Incredible Episode II Interpretations Of The Droids For A Song

Posted by Paul | December 04, 2013 at 11:00 PM EDT |

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!

A Genuine Variation, Or Taking Bidders For A Ride?

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!

A Packaging Error Of The Peculiar Kind

Posted by Paul | August 07, 2013 at 01:39 PM EDT |

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!

A Whole Lot For A Star Wars Lot

Posted by Paul | August 05, 2013 at 01:25 PM EDT |

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!
