Silver Bib Fortuna Ring (The Galaxy Collection from JAP Inc.)

June 25, 2011

I’ve posted about my other two rings from JAP Inc. before (Jabba and the Rancor), so give those entries a look if you want some general info about them. I’ve been on the lookout for the other two Jabba’s Palace characters ever since getting those, but these things just don’t show up on eBay very often at all, and even Yahoo Auctions Japan doesn’t have very many.  This is the first one of this character that I’ve seen, and I’ve been looking for over a year.

Patience paid off, though, as I was able to buy it for less than $30, which is a steal compared to the original asking price of close to $200. Of course getting these secondhand means that you can’t be too picky about the size. Like the others, this really only fits me as a pinky ring, but it’s not as if I was really going to be wearing it anyway. I would think the potential audience for a ring like this would be relatively small compared to the more major characters, but it’s cool that they made one.

Here are the JAP Inc silver rings that I have at the moment. I still need the Gamorrean Guard, but I have yet to see that come up for sale anywhere, even in Japan. I guess most of the people who bought these when they were originally available were hardcore enough that they’re unlikely to sell them later on. And of course they were only available in very limited numbers to begin with.

    A very nice find. I’ve always felt that it’s these little finds after a long search that makes collecting the hobby it is. Aquisition is nothing compared to the search. 🙂

    You said you were looking for two rings. What is the other one?

      The Gamorrean Guard. I like these enough that I’m a little tempted to get all of them (even the non-Jabba-related ones), but it would probably take decades to find them at this rate. 😀

    I will keep my eyes peeled.
