Mine's supposed to be $185 Cdn shipped. But I must confess to some degree of nervousness about it coming in. I ordered it from John's collectibles out in BC. Communication has been great and every time I ask, he says no problem if I want the deposit refunded. I'd like to support him, but do not want to miss out.
This was the major cross over occuring in all the X books back in the mid-late 80's? If so, I have probably all the original issues involved. If not, I am remembering something else. It was tough for me to finish. Titles were hot at the time and I went to Australia for a stretch (where they hand wrote the price on the cover in ink). My comic story put aside many of the titles for me, but not all.
Good theory Scott, but not Jesus, Moses. Sorry I cannot recall the specific book in the bible, but an entertaining version of it can be found in the recent cartoon video Prince of Egypt which is of course the story of Moses.
As a brief summary, Pharoah went and took all the young male children and threw them to the crocodiles. I suspect Lucas will be more subtle than that, but perhaps not. Regardless, it will not be pretty.
Another collector on another board (Canadian) put forward the theory that distribution for current Saga figures sucks so badly because this is a rerun of the last waves of Episode I. He is under the impression that production has been scaled back due to the switch in card color.
There was a discussion of just this sort of auction (case of silver R2) at RS back when this figure first came out. I recall it coming up for auction on ebay, cheaper than this, but not enough so it sold. Wonder if it's the same seller. TRU employee?
Got mine today. Happy to have it, but boy, I better be careful to look at the back of the card when I open up my 3POs. It came in a trade and it was a good deal based on that, otherwise I wouldn't recommend chasing this unless you are a true variant hunter.
