    Question Gold-plated Slave I & X-Wing Fighter Question

    I was at my local Big Lots looking for some older SW items, when I ran across something I hadnt seen before.

    If anyone can provide info on it I would be grateful:

    Contents inside a clear plastic case with a black base.
    X-Wing Fighter in gold-plate on left hand side, Slave I on right hand side. Both ships are pointed so that they face the middle of the case.

    The price was around $15.

    Two questions:

    Is this a good price for this?
    What if any information can you provide on this item?

    There are three of these sets listed at Rebelscum. I have no idea about their value and don't collect these but I can at least direct you to images of the rest of the series.

    Thanks!!!

    That first link you gave me was it!!!!

    I looked this morning using google.com but couldnt find anything.

    Now I just have to figure out who made em (I assume Galoob, & what their original retail price was, so that I dont overpay for em)

    Value is not a concern me, as I plan on opening em...

    Again, thanks!

    They were made by Galoob, they were exclusive to 3 different retailers (FAO, JC Penny, and the Fan Club) and were $100 each originally. Our good friend r2dee2 picked up all 3 for me w/ COAs (certificates of authenticity) a while back. They're made from the Galoob X-rays molds (those molds got a lot of milage, besides X-rays and these 24-karat gold sets, they were also used for the classic trilogy Die Cast vehicles).

    - Slave I/X-wing set was JC Penny's
    - Vader's TIE/Falcon set was FAO's
    - Shuttle/Imp logo set was the Fan Club's

    JT: I don't think the shuttle was a Fan Club exclusive. I bought it at Service Merchandise when it first came out for 74.99 and until now believed it to be a Service Merchandise exclusive (it was the first Galoob item I ever got). At least up until KB and other closeout stores got them about a year ago.

    Later,

    You could be right, but it might have been a shared-exclusive or the Fan Club could have tossed it quickly. The data from Galoob's old site says "Star Wars Catalog", but that's not conclusive.
