Not bad.

i found a blue snaggletooth on ebay for about $50. That's relatively good.

Probably the $4 Blue Snaggs at a swap meet in 1987. Others:
= $1 SW bed sheet at a yard sale (wasn't even for sale, just used to display other items).
= $130 total or so for POTF carded Luke Trooper, R2 Saber, Imp Dig, Barada, A-Wing Pilot, Romba, & Amanaman.
= $35 for POTF2 Lando (just kidding... well, I did pay that much, but it's hardly a greatest deal).

The 2 for $1 I got on a carded Ackbar and Klaatu ('88 at KB). Some 60 odd bucks for all for the Hoth figures, vehicles, and accessories minus the AT-AT, snowspeeder and tri-pod gun. And $30 for a poncho Luke w/ card. Think those are all of my good deals.

A friend just sold me a vintage tie fighter, snowspeeder, complete Death Star playset (even with the foam "trash"), and the 2 Hoth sets (the "cave" with collapsible entrance and the one with the cardboard AT-AT background) for $35. Not too bad of a deal.

I just started collecting carded vintage figures so the best deal I've yet to find was last year for my Death Squad Commander and Jawa: C-9/ 12-Backs/ unpunched- for $100 each.

I got a MOMC unpunched Jann Tosh from the Droids series on a canadian card for $15.00. That's a great deal.

Back when I was in high school I was talking about this kid about the Timothy Zahn SW book I had just read, and he offered to sell me his SW collection, he sold every figure he had for $2.
This was in the day before the widesperead net, and I didn't know about all the POTF figures that were released(i was onto GI Joe by that point).
Anyhow when he showed me his figures I was in AWE never realizing the POTF force ones existed, so I ended up with Han in Carbonite, Dignitary, A-wing, Luke Endor, Barada, Lando General, all for $2 a piece.
This and the soon to be release Bend Em's got me back into the game, not until about a year later when I got a mail order catalog (yes that's what we used before online retailers) did I realize how good of a deal that I had gotten. I'm still in awe over it, althogh knowing that most off my vintage vehicles got garage saled off to some chap for $0.25 I feel a certain sense of redemption.
