How much would you pay for a vintage Vlix figure that was missing, say, a leg, but in otherwise decent condition? Not exactly the same, but I'm sure people would pay some good coin for that shot at owning one of the most rare Star Wars figures.
Would it be a lot different than paying a $100+ for a box for a very rare/desirable vintage piece? The box for a Flagg, for example?
I hear you and I realize that an item is worth what someone will pay you for it, but I just didn't know Stretch Armstrong was that popular still. I don't think there is a stretcharmstrongdefender.com.
