I don't understand some people just bc it has an error or variation does not mean i'm gonna pay big $$ for it.

I hate when they put "variation". It's a friggin paint error!!!  Big deal, so my question is why get rid of it?  You found something unique, unless this guy thinks he's getting some ridiculous price for it.

Brings back mamories of the red card error craze, some of those Fetts sold for big bucks. Not to mention the LT/SS stuff

Well one thing's for sure, the guy that sold it must have danced and cheered when that auction ended.  The guy bought it for
10-20 bucks and then sells it for $400.  Maybe toy stores should go through the cases looking for errors and then selling them on ebay themselves.

What kind of fool would buy these at this price when you can just wait and pay retail?

People need to stop calling those variations, at least the guy switched back and forth with the terms but he still called it a variation.  A variation is when the actual figure gets changed, such as paint jobs, the two arc troopers for example, stupid people...That is pretty weird though, I was quite  :o when I saw it.  Good find!

^^^^ If its Russian (and vintage, that means it would be from the cold war era !!) Why is the writing in english ?? I have no doubt that its a bootleg, but I dont think its from Russia and the cold war era. But I could be wrong.

Why could you not just switch out the guts with a NTSC xbox? It looks like everything is relatively accessible.
