Wow, and the sad thing is, they're pretty much just paying for the packaging.     :o :o :o :o :o :o

That's a pretty cool concept there, something I don't think many people would have thought about doing.  Nice find there!

I need people's opinion on something. I was looking for Red Royal Guards last night on Ebay just to see what they were going for since I would like a few more. I stumbled across an auction that had only been up for about eight minutes. This auction had a Red and Blue Guard listed as "Buy It Now" for only $0.99.

I did a double take, thought about it for a few minutes, and then tought what the heck. I figured the worst that would happen was that the seller would tell me that this was a mistake and that I would be a nice guy about it and say that's OK. So, I bid. Now the seller is being nice and is actually going to sell me these figures for $0.99 even though he made a mistake.

My question: Should I stick it to this guy (who may be a scalper) or be a nice guy and say that I'm not going to take the figures?  ???

You're saying this guy had both the red & blue Royal Guards for sale at a BIN of $0.99!?  Something doesn't sound right about that.  I can understand starting an auction at that price, but not it being BIN for that.  What's the guy's feedback look like?  Care to share the link to the auction?

Maybe he swapped the figures out with the old TPM Blue Guard, and POTF Red Guards. I would ask some questions, and make sure he doesn't make up for it withj S&H cost.

Here's the link to the auction...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5977198019&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&rd=1

The guy just made a mistake and put the figures up for Buy It Now at $0.99 instead of starting the bidding at $0.99. He stated that in an email to me but gave me no hassle. He is perfectly willing to sell me both figures for this price and is charging me less than $4.00 for shipping. He seems like a nice enough guy that is why I feel bad about screwing him for a simple mistake.

If you don't want to buy them just talk to the guy and arrange to leave good feedback to each other.

I checked out the guy's feedback. He doesn't seem like a big time scalper. I sent him (actually her) and email stating that I wasn't going to penalize her for a mistake. If I bought the figures for $0.99, I would just feel like I stole them.

First post on the site. I wanted to start off by saying you guys have tons of info and it's always appreciated. I noticed this on ebay today and didn't know if anybody else had seen any of these "sleeve variants". It's certainly different than the one I have or what I've seen.

I'd hardly call this a varient, just the way someone packaged him inside the card.

I don't know, his sleeve is pointed up, I don't see how that could just be the way he was packaged, perhaps it's an error?

Well I'd say this is a little to much to ask for this, I have bought loose figs from this person in the past for reasonable prices so I don't know why so much?

I can't believe how hard this guy is to get, Hasbro had better re-release the OTC line after ROTS so we can fill gaps!

^^^^^ I've seen Kebco sell no less than 5 of these guys on ebay... I have the feeling that this guy will be the FF Weequay of the modern POTC line. I've seen the POTC Jawas go for $25.00 as well !!

I never saw a POTC Sandtrooper at retail. I purchased a couple from amazon last December, but they sold out in no time. Over a period of a week or two, the figures were in stock a few times. They would last for a few hours and then sell out. If memory serves me correctly, they sold out one time while I was in the process of ordering them.

The evolution pack Sandtrooper looks like a better figure to me though. From pictures, it looks like his sculpt is based on the VOTC Stormtrooper. He should be pretty nice.

It might be for a loose figure, but I wanted the OTC Sandtrooper to complete my carded collection.

Ok I won an OTC Greedo on ebay and when it arrived the bubble was crunched on the bottom. It clearly states MOC and in fine condition, and was pack great and had no damage to the outer carton, do you think I'm over reacting?

I don't think you're over-reacting.  You should send that guy an email stating the fact that you're upset with it.  If he doesn't help you leave at a minimum neutral feedback.  Has he left you feedback yet?
