With the 'Chive Cast returning to its regular show format following the live SWCA shows, we are back on the specific figure MarketWatch track. First up is the AT-AT Commander. Whilst not the most exciting figure, I did actually anticipate a bit more love for him that the market actually produced.
As we move past the 41 back characters, the number of potential cardbacks we see him on reduces, with only 5 ESB cardback possibilities. Regular followers of the MW will know we're always on the lookout for coin offer MOCs, particularly those that have multiple offers and even multiple price stickers. AT-AT Commander didn't disappoint.
Summary of auctions:
Pricing was relatively low across all examples seen over the period. Perhaps this reflects that no high grade examples are coming up for auction. A few decent grade examples in the $300+ range were sitting as BIN auctions, but no takers. I actually didn't find any Kenner graded MOC's sold over the period ..... this was a first for these MarketWatch segments. We did find plenty of coin offer stickers, no surprise, as I'm sure he was a very good peg warmer back in the day.
Interestingly, the market rate for the 2010 Vintage Collection MOC was in the $50-$75 range, this would be the first time I've seen those MOC's up with (and more than) the majority of sales data.
EMPIRE STRIKES BACK
Not a lot of high end items to pick from this month. Here is his debut card, in reasonable shape:
45 Back ungraded $124.99 - eBay link
45 Back - ungraded $78 - eBay link
45 Back ungraded $26 (with POP removed) - eBay link
47 Back - 4-LOM offer plus coin offer sticker ungraded $56 - eBay link
(I actually found another similar cardback with coin offer that sold for $41).
48B ungraded $67.50 - eBay link
48C ungraded $62.11 - eBay link
RETURN OF THE JEDI
65 ungraded $34 - eBay link
77 Ungraded $43 - eBay link
So there we have this month's selection. Not a lot of great examples, but it highlights that you can still buy some MOC's at pretty reasonable pricing.
Till next month, Wampa Wampa!!
