Back story: My primary focus is buying and selling books. About 3 years ago I received a call from a gentleman who was responding to an online post about that. He explained he was handling the selling of a rather extensive Star Wars collection for the estate of a prematurely deceased friend. He said it was something that needed to be seen.
Curiosity piqued, we agreed to a date and time. And a few days later I was on route to the location where the collection was being stored.
Tucked in the woods, off a long dirt drive, was a log cabin. Upon being welcomed inside, I was greeted with a large living space completely covered in every type of Star Wars book and publication. Paperbacks, picture books, encyclopedias, slip-cased books, comics, cookbooks, coloring-books, pop-ups... simply everything.
As I perused the presentation, the gentleman told me about his friend's vocation, his "raison d'etre", to collect all things Star Wars, which is what he did with passion for many years. I selected the titles I wanted, piling them on a counter top. He said: "Before you finish, do you want to see the real collection?", to which I agreed. You don't drive 2 hours one-way and not see what there is to see.
He took me across the yard to a hulking outbuilding and led me upstairs. On the second floor, piled 15" or more high to the peak of the roof, was an immense space absolutely crammed with Star Wars merchandise of all kinds.
I have been a Star Wars fan since the first film came out, and there were items in this cavernous space that I didn't know existed. To say this collector had been, as some collectors like to fashion themselves: "indiscriminate", would be an understatement of no small measure.
In any case, this AT-AT, came from that collection.
Again, please look carefully at the images, and the condition description, and decide whether the seeming re-application of a second layer of tape on one end is an issue for you or not.
I personally do not believe this item has ever been opened, but I can only perceive what I see and know what has occurred since the item has been in my possession. If you are not sure, do not offer to purchase.
The item will be bubble wrapped, and placed in a larger box to be shipped. Insured, requiring signature confirmation upon delivery.
Please note: The box is BIG - 31 x 16 x 12" and HEAVY - 15lbs. So shipping will be EXPENSIVE. I am not overstating the shipping costs, it is simply a matter of what it is to ship something this large.
