View Full Version : Is this Crazy? Someone spend $231.50 for a AOTC R2-D2 figure on ebay.

I cant beleive that this guy bought a AOTC R2-D2 figure variation (R3-T7 leg version) for $231.50 on ebay. Here is the link


Now we know there is 2 different leg variations, ( I sent in a picture to sirsteves and he posted it about 3 weeks ago) but which one is rarer? Isnt it to early to tell since the AOTC figures have not been released in mass qtys yet?

Wouldn't it be smart to wait and see which one is rarer after the 23rd before shelling out $231.50 for a figure?

Is it just me or is that crazy?

It would be funny if the R2-D2 with R3-T7 legs ended up being the common version.

There are about 4 more auctions on ebay for the R2-D2 figure with R3-T7 legs, so they probally wont be that hard to find at retail.

I myself have found both versions, but dont know which is rarer since I found equal amounts.

2 with dome capped legs
2 with R3-T7 style legs

Most likely it'll be the most common due to that version being on R3, R4 and R2-Q5 and I guess R2 w/ Holo Leia. :D

'Course even if it isn't the most common, they'll both most likely be there in good amounts on the 23rd.

This must be the same "CRACK HEAD" that spent $213.00 on that Preview Jango Fett when it was the first AOTC figure on E-Bay. Now you can get Jango at TRU. I can't figure these people out.....:confused::confused::confused:

By the time he gets it in the mail he could have bought it for $6-7 at the store. I wonder if he wants to buy some magical beans?

That boy ain't right...

Why are you guys talking about me like this??
I like that figure!!!! It's gonna be awesome when I get it & I'll have the last laugh!!!!! HA HA HA HA HA!!!!

Just kidding, I'll get it on the 23rd!

It's people like this that make Star Wars collecting have a nerdy stigma!!!!

04-17-2002, 12:36 PM
We "fanboys" are regarded as some of the most crazy action figure collectors when it comes to variations. It does not surprise me one bit!

04-17-2002, 12:55 PM
LOL! there is like 10 auctions on ebay for the R2-D2 with R3-T7 legs now. I wonder if this guy is kicking himself. Only six more days and he could have probally picked one up for under $6.00.

It does not make sense to buy this on ebay along with the other AOTC figures since they will all be released in less than a week.
