since we're talking about this figure... how about his force file pic??? it's not even in the emporers throne room. I would think it would have been involved in the scene that the figure is based on.  8)

Boba Binks, I agree with you.

it's quite sick. The only reason that the fig sells for this price though is becasue people are willing to buy it. When the phaze dies off, we will all be able to get the figure for a decent price. don't give into the dark side ;)

seriously though, if you don't want to pay high, out of wack prices, just don't. if no one buys it, then they can't sell it. eventually, it'll be attainable.

The figure actually isn't that bad, though I already had that figure, just minus the gun, which annoys me. I find this to be the case with a couple of the ep1 figs. Obi, Qui-gon, Darth, and Anikan figs were all so very similar, yet they were "new" figures. This is the case with the amidala, as its the same outfit as the ummm, naboo one? Can't remember the other figs name. All that is different though is the GUN!!!

I will hold off until I find someone who wants to sell it for a decent price.

hey. It's cool if you like it. I'm sure there is stuff I've bought that you would say "OMG, why did he pay that much for that?!"

I will hold and wait. I didn't expect to find the Swimming jar jar for $5, but it happend. Value is all in the holder. I once got over $300 worth (and by worth, i mean if i had bought all this at retail this past year) of Star Wars Lego for $45. That's right. I met someone that just did not want their Star Wars Lego anymore, so they sold all of them (about 20 sets) for $45. It was unreal, but it did happen. I already had all the ledo sets, but I figured I could use the doubles. I am using this as an example to show that one day I will get these figures for a decent price, cause stuff like this happens all the time. It's not just star wars collectibles, it's just in life. Items lose value to people, and people will be willing to throw something away that is worth a billion dollars to another person! :)

I have not gotten:

Sio Bibble
Queen with the guns

That is it. I haven't gotten them because I've only been collecting the EP1 figs for the past 2 to 3 weeks, and I have yet to talk to someone who has these for sale, even though I want to buy them.

kinda icky to see talking of prices for figures like this. oh well. I view the hobby different, and don't value a figure by a price that it will "command."  As far as getting these figs, i just started collecting the ep1 carded figs about 3 weeks ago. I have them all except about 6, including r2-b1 and tc-14. I plan on getting them one day, but for retail price. Call me crazy, but I know it will happen. I can't justify paying more  for these 2 figs, especially since  I've gotten most of my ep1 figs for less than $3 MOMC. I got a swimming jar jar for $5 and a pit droid 2 pack for $5. Thats the most i've spent on an ep1 fig.   8)
