    Non Japanese/Euro Eopie!

    I was at Celebration 2 this past weekend and finally found one of the items that was eluding my collection: The Eopie and Qui Gon Jinn. I priced them out all over the show, and the price ranged from $50 (for a european) up to $125 (again a european and one japanese). I was about to go buy the first euro version (the vendor was very nice), however I ran into one more sample. I asked to see it (noticing that it was the non-euro version) and I was shocked at what I saw. Not only was it an english version, it did not have any of the Japanese stickering on it like every non-euro version I have seen! I asked the gentleman where he found this, and he told me Guam! Not going to Guam anytime soon, combined with a very reasonable price, I snatched that puppy up. I search on Ebay (I know) for this beastpack almost everyday, and I have NEVER seen one of these up for auction. Has anyone else ever seen one of these?

    Japanese = same as American, except with a sticker on the back (which is removable).

    BTW, the guy probably removed the sticker himself. Voila, instant 'American' version.

    It would be pretty much impossible to remove the sticker without taking away that area (plus probably the surrounding area) of the box... unless he chanced it was successful with a sticker removal tool and was able to not damage the box.

    I've seen quite a few on ebay actually, never really saw any Eopie auctions get into the hundreds. Whoever was selling a $125 Euro Eopie was definitely stupid.

    IF he did remove it, he did a damn good job. I really don't think he did because I saw a Japanese one and it would have been VERY tough to remove one of those stickers. The box is in MINT shape so either way, I am very happy. LT, you are definately right about the stupidity of a $125 euro version. Needless to say, the same guy was selling AOTC figures, even Obi Wan and Kit Fisto, for $15 each.

    Hard to tell the sticker remover is. I can remove stickers and even blisters without a trace of tampering. The sticker was removed, thats the simple answer and the most logical. It's possible that it never had a sticker. Like it just missed that phase in the factory. You got a good price, but it's still a Japanees one. Stickers on or off make little difference in the collectable itself. I bought the euro one myself at CII. I spent $50.00 and thought that was fair. I don't mind all the funny writting on it. I just hope they don't pop up at KB for $4.99 next month.
    If you want to find it you have to shop.

    $125 for the Eopie, blimey. If I had known that I would have got more of them.

    I only paid 10 for mine about a year ago, so anyone wants to offer me that kind a money it's theirs.

    Only kidding, I wouldn't sell it, well not for another 20 years or so.
