    Apr 22, 2008, 8:34 AM - Found some gaunts on eBay... #1

    ...and need some opinions.

    As always, eBay should be the LAST place to buy Fett stuff, But this looks like a pretty good deal. (But we all know looks can be deceiving ESPECIALLY when it comes to the 'bay)

    The seller is "skateguyqball"; 98.8% positive feedback. (anybody know of him, had some dealings with him?)
    Currently the highest bid is at $91 and shipping is $25, auction ends tomorrow afternoon at 4:15.
    They are resin, come with hinges, look to be RotJ and here's some pics:

    I'd REALLY appreciate a few opinions on it, seeing as how the clock is ticking on this item. I'm VERY wary about buying stuff from randoms on eBay, so I want to know if you guys think this might be worth the risk.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks, I'll check the CH. I'd feel a whole lot better about buying them, knowing they are a member here too.

    they are from a member here, they used to be mine. they're not great, the left is rotj boba, the right is a jango. they're made out of resin, kinda heavy, but the reason they keep getting passed around like a joint at a snoop dogg concert is that you'd need to have some pretty small forearms to troop them comfortably. i'd say they'd be great for someone doing a custom as long as that person has a slight build.

    I noticed that the left had the dimples (forget if its supposed to be 3 or 4) and the right had none.

    But I'm actually glad to know they are a tight fit on most ppl, I am skinny as hell, so they should fit me fine. They may find themselves a home with me yet.

    And S_N, you say they are heavy, but can you tell me how sturdy they are? Also who currently has them?

    Thanks for that S_N, I'll just have to try my luck at bidding then.

    EDIT: Mods, please feel free to lock this thread anytime. I don't know how but if I can lock my own thread and haven't figured it out yet, someone please let me know.
