Ths shipping charge actually hasn't changed. It's the same price it was before he lowered the price of the item. What I'm trying to figure out is how Snowballz managed to buy the same thing from the same seller but at such a lower shipping rate... and with USPS. ;)
Aahhh... I see the confusion now.
I didn't buy my Obi AFBB mini from the same seller as you. I bought it from a different seller that I also purchased a Dooku AOTC from and he combined the shipping. I was just saying that I got a good deal on an AFBB *also* ;)
I looks as if we've both been on an ebay buying spree on these minis... I seem to remember we started collecting them at about the same time. The $99 FX and mini sale, right? How many are you up to now?
Ahhhh okay. I get you know. That clears things completely up. ;)
Yeah, that's when I started as well. I'll forever curse MR for coming up with that deal. :D From the Vader ROTS I collected every widely released mini, with the exception of the Obi-Wan AOTC and the Count Dooku AOTC (not sure if its different from the ROTS). So I'm at 13 now. After getting that free Vader I was only going to get the minis that I liked best, but it turned out I liked most of them, so I ended up thinking, 'What the heck, I already have most of these why not get the last ones I don't have to have a mostly complete collection?' And sure enough, I did that. In less than two months I went from having zero to having 13 minis. :o :P
I'm already on the lookout for the Luke ESB and Vader ESB... there's are sellers on eBay that have them on sale already, but I'm waiting until they reach the $25 and under pricepoint. ;)
if its "as first built", then it should not include the D-ring. Tongue
there was no D-ring on the ROTS version.
that would have been added sometime in between ROTS and ANH.
You're right. The AFBB (both the LE and the .45) were released before ROTS, so MR pretty much took a gamble and made replicas of what Old Ben's lightsaber would have looked like when it was brand new. Personally I prefer this one over the weathered one... it looks more like what I remember seeing in ANH.
