Do you think sellers read these threads and see what we, the buyers, think the price will be, and then set their prices accordingly? Someone speculated about the Parco Vader as "going to go for at least $300", then one appeared on ebay for a BIN of exactly $300. They'd be silly not to do this, since we wouldn't be completely surprised by the starting price, that's what we guessed it to be, so we may be more likely to buy it at that price.
I cringe when I see people quoting high prices on items not yet released like this, partly for this reason. I do think this figure will be highly sought after, I'm going to try to find one and I don't yet own any 400%ers (but I have all currently released SW kubs, except for the Jawa chase), but do you think we may actually be hurting ourselves by telegraphing our expectations on price like this?
"I don't see this figure selling for more than $90 or so." (Let's see if this works... =)
