Well, not sure the seller really lies : he mentionned "the condition is generally very good/mint"... "generally", ... but not in this case !  :lticaptd:

Still made £56.00 + a hefty p&p charge.  Perhaps some bidders didn't view the pictures?

Ebay says something like $432 US.  Seems like a decent price.

It said US$588 when I looked. It think 430-odd was GBP.

Something for the parts box, but not at that price.

This problem is often seen on the Etalon.

It can be fixed by gluyng back the ring on the cap. But anyway, the price is far too high !

I have been looking for an original BUZZ LIGHTYEAR for my grandson....and me.

 

Batteries need replacing they have run out.

 

Now £160 would you not think of putting a new set in, at 2 quid tops, to prove that it works....but then again maybe it doesn't.

So, that's the Indus Gray.  Hadn't seen one before, as far as I can remember.

Cheapskates.  Almost as lacking in class as the people who sell a pen for a few hundred dollars and then charge $7.50 for postage.

And when you order a new car they add £400 on for delivery.
