Thread: Rare FF figures

    Rare FF figures

    What are considered to be the rare/hard to find FF figures?

    I have some that I consider to be rare/hard to find:
    Weequay
    Tie Fighter Pilot
    Emperor
    Vader
    Garindan
    At St Driver
    Boba Fett
    Tarkin
    Malakili (Rancor Keeper)
    Snowtrooper
    Leia Hoth, Pote Snitkin, Death Star Trooper, At At driver = these were availbe thru the fan club so I list them last because they were readily available.

    The only one that know of that I am missing is Sandtrooper. What others am I missing that are considered rare/hard to find?

    Re: Rare FF figures

    The only one's I would consider rare are the Weequay and the Sandtrooper, all of the others were pretty easy to find at retail when they were released. I actually worked in a TRU that got those "rare" Collection 3 waves in abundance during a sale that had them for $2.99. We actually got the Sandtrooper in those cases, but he was only one per case. I only saw the Weequay once at retail, and that was at an Electronics Boutique. . . not many stores recieved that particular case. All of the other ones you listed are uncommon for sure. . . but I wouldn't put them in the same category as the two I listed. I'm reluctant to even put Sandtrooper in the same category as Weequay.

    Oh. . . you are talking about the US versions, right? Otherwise, I'm not really sure. I would still say that Weequay is rare, mainly because all of us who can't afford the US have flocked towards that version. I don't think any other versions of the Sandtrooper exist, except the US version. I'm not 100% sure on the non-US versions though.

    I have to agree with fett. I remember getting sick of seeing all of those you listed with the exception of the fan club exclusives, Weequay, and the Sandtrooper. I never had any problem findin gany of the others at retail. I would actually consider the fan club figures to be more rare than those others also, because I'm sure not everyone who wanted them got due to the enlarged price, and the simple fact that many don't like to buy that toys that way (myself included, I hate ordering, I like to find my toys at retail.)

    But I like to find out if anyone has ever seen or heard anything about a FF Ponda Boba. He's was listed in the slide holder checklist, but that's the only place I've heard of him.

    Well, all i know is that when FF were the thing most of the figures I listed here weren't easy to find. I only saw most of them once and others maybe twice.

    I never heard of a FF Ponda Baba. I would assume though that all current figures at that time may have been considered for a FF card. They did card many of them at the time anyway.

    I have seen a mock-up with a Ponda Baba slide. If I can find the pictures I'll post the link. It definitely wasn't released. I kinda liked the Freeze Frames. . . wished they would've lasted a little longer.

    All of this links I seem to have are all outdated, and no longer have the pictures. There was a mock-up of the Ponda Baba card, with a legitamate Ponda Baba slide and a Removable Helmet Vader floating around on the web some time ago, but I have lost track of it.

    If anyone still has the pictures please post them. . .

    I was talking about the mock up that had the Ponda Baba cardback, and slide. . . I'm still searching high and low for the pictures. It had a RH Darth Vader on it. . . but everything else was Ponda Baba.

    Thanks for the link anyway.

    The old "Collector's Database" has some pictures. They aren't the greatest, but there are some different views. Scroll to the bottom, and you will see the links. If I find anymore pics I'll pass them on.

    Re: Rare FF figures

    Well, I believe the top 6 Hardest FF figures are:
    1) Weequay
    2) Sandtrooper
    3) Capt. Piett corrected variant
    4) Boba Fett
    5) Garindan
    6) AT-St Driver
    Most of those listed were in one of the few cases Hasbro cancelled back in 1998 after initial shipment.

    After that most are easily to find, but some collection 2 figures are becoming a little harder as time passes.

    Thank you.
