    yowza...all that for a loos fig. What ever happend to the old 3 buck rule. I could see a loose TF Vader going for 20 or 25, but that's too much.

    I think the people who bid are fooled by the other pictures. You only get the Darth Vader.

    Yeah... that's kind of a crappy way to distract people, throwing in other pictures.

    Gem Mint Condition? Boy, that's a new one to me. How about Super-Ultra Mega Gem Mint Condition to insure a higher final bid next time.

    'Gem Mint Condition' is actually a real grade, though I think it's kind of silly.

    Some loose modern figures have been often selling higher than their carded counterparts lately. Perhaps it's perceived value of having an actual toy, or it's just cheaper to ship loose, or maybe it's faith that a loose item in a pic proves the owner's authenticity.

    For example, take a look at this loose Captain Panaka auction that ended at $12.50: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=1743875479

    And later E1 stuff goes even higher, look at this loose Amidala Ascension Gun that ended at $31:

    Just goes to show that I don't know my grading scales.

    Can there actually be a true Gem Mint figure? The only way to guarantee a figure never sees a ding or scratch you'd have to catch it falling out of the packing machine. I would be skeptical of a so call 100% mint figure, but that's just me, I'm always a bit skeptical.
