The SSD auction will be a scam and the minifigs are indeed knock-offs of which eBay is awash.
Unfortunately, even with the best market conditions, there is always a trade off between selling things at a high price and selling things fast. That's just a principle of marketing. That said, you might consider these options: BrickLink / Brick Owl These are sites that specialize in trading LEGO. I can't comment further, as I've only used these sites as ...
Your friend can get Queen Amidala at several shops based in Europe. Here are all the listings with the country of the shop: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogPG.asp?M=sw387. It might be also worth checking the eBay listings specific for their country. As far as Mario, LEGO never made an official one, however this UK based store does carry some: ...
So the box says 49 inches long, the official description says "under 50 inches long". I just measured the width (about 13.25 inches) and height (about 9.5 inches) on my assembled set. So a rough minimum inner size box would be 50"L x 13.5"W x 10"H.
For sets currently available through LEGO.com or other online retailers, the cheaper sets may be authentic, but part of a scam known as drop shipping. This type of scam works like this: You order a remarkably cheap, new LEGO set from eBay or the like. The seller uses your contact information and a stolen credit card to purchase a set directly from an ...
Indeed it seems there are two different boxes for 7670 Hailfire Droid & Spider Droid, but it seems the box is the only difference, so if you just want the pieces ignore which box they're selling and buy the cheapest. :)
Is the set new in the box, and never opened? Is it retired and rare? In that case, the skies the limit since the set may not be available anywhere. When I find my self in this situation I generally list for the high-end price on brickpicker, but include a best offer option. Do you have the manual, the box it came in and all of the parts and minifigures? ...
In general, legos can be un-yellowed by soaking in a combination of hydrogen peroxide, oxyclean powder (or sodium percarbonate), under sunlight or UV light. Or use Retr0Bright. Certain colors of painted decorations (such as gold) will not hold up well to the cleaning, but plain pieces and some colors do hold up well.
Given that this is from a new set that is currently in production, you should contact LEGO customer service and they'll probably send you a replacement torso at no charge. LEGO has a pretty simple site to handle this: https://service.lego.com/en-us/replacementparts#BasicInfo You just have to enter your age and the issue that you are having, then you enter ...
It depends of the set's inventory parts, I mean pieces. For example, the Hoth Rebel Base from 2007 was only available in stores for 5 months, and if you look at it, it's an amazing set (I have it) So, it depends, and as Joubarc said, there is not a rule for that.
Don't worry my friend, those "unchromed" spots are because of the regular use of that minifigure.
