I am being very choose and only getting ones that I want (I know that makes no sense, as obviously you only get the ones you want), however let me explain what I mean, before I had 3 categories in collecting these are as follows.
Category 1 (and the only ones I am buying from now straight of the peg).
Anything Movie Related to the OT that was from the Vintage Line done in Modern Style.
Category 2 (Now this used to be my back up line, picking up when I know I have the cash to splash out on them).
Anything that was a secondary character from the OT Movies or the New Republic era.
Category 3 (Which was anything, will be picking up of ebay or here in the sell section or from other boards, for a fair price).
Anything which fit in with the OT or New Republic from the entire Star Wars figure universe or anything that could be fitted in from various other lines (or used from various other lines for customs).
So yes my collecting has suddenly just changed however will I stop collecting no, does the price point annoy me yes, would I like it to go to a lower price Hell Yes with Bells on - is it going to anytime soon nope, I think it will get higher before it crashes, because the younger generation with disposable incoms that dont have mortgages or anything like that and have no real bills can still get them, Hasbro has just stopped people of an older generation from getting them - if you notice theres less and less of the OT being made and more of the EU and PT stuff being made, why because thats whats popular at the min to the younger generation, they couldnt care less about Wioslea (who they retconned into being a Jedi Knight and they cant decide if she's a Man or a Woman, WTF, shes a used car saleswoman originally) who appeared for a brief glimpse, nope they want that character from the New Dark Horse comic that appeared for a brief panel but looked so kick ass because he had millions of guns coming out of every orifice, and was a Jedi Master in the OT era as well as being one in the PT era, who owned the Millennium Falcon before Han got it, and Also was a love interest for Leia (or some other such crap).
