....to coincide with the thread on the most you've ever paid for a figure, I thought I'd start one to ask what's the best you've ever gotten for a rare fig.
R2D2 w/ Holo Leia: $6.50 last week off of Ebay. Came to $12 with s/h.
Jorj Sacul: $32 also last week off of Ebay. Wanted it so badly when it was going regularly for $100, but waiting paid off.
POTF2 Orange Card: Luke w/ Tan Vest, Boba w/ half circles on hands, and all longsabers including Obi Wan with half picture on card, all Deluxe POTF2 figures, all orange cards and a 12 inch Han on Tauntaun - I got these for trade for an Episode I double -sided teaser poster that I got when I was working at a movie theater. These were going for $200 when they first hit EBAY (when EPI was the hottest thing on Earth in November 1998 - now they go for $10), but I didn't want to get into trouble with Lucasfilm so I traded them instead of selling (our district manager gave these double-sided posters out to employees at an employee meeting - I got lucky).
