I think this is a wrap, I heard back from 3-4 more people.  This figure did not come sealed.  I even had pictures sent to me.

So my TF Vader is not deffective after all ;D

Grroovvyy!

Merry Christmas to all JDer's,

The Toy Fair Vader is a figure that seems to have really held its value over time. That last few I've seen on eBay still go for about $175US, give or take. I've just never been willing to spend that much on it, despite it being a very unique figure with the saber going through the bubble.

A friend of mine offered me one for $170CDN, about $140US, which is very fair with today's value (and considering he paid $200CDN for it). But I just couldn't convince myself to spend that much - one moment I regret it, the next I'm glad I didn't spend the money.

Any others still needing this?

He fluctuates back and forth.

Not too long ago I saw him ending around $100 or so on ebay.  Now (as you said) he's back up to $150.

I remember when Hasbro handed him out at TF - auctions were ending close to $500.  It's almost like attendees were leaving the building, going back to their hotel rooms, and listing him right then and there!

I would've sold him too for $500; given the opportunity!

I was fortuneate enough to get two from the fanclub, and traded one over at Galactic Hunter.  I dont even remember what I traded it for ???.  I actually used my Jedi Points in the auctions a few years back to score my opener.

I  was  able  to  get  2  as  well,  one  to  keep  carded  and  one  to  open.  I  promised  my  friend  I'd  hold  off  opening  one  until  he  was  able  to  get  his  own,  but  he  never  had  the  chance.  I  gave  it  to  him  on  his  40th  birthday.  I  would  have  rather  opened  it  than  sell  it  to  some  stranger  who  has  more  money  than  he  knows  what  to  do  with,  for  a  ton  of  cash  I  surely  would  have  blown  by  now  on  more  Star  Wars  stuff,  and  I  didn't  have  the  heart  to  open  it  when  my  friends  missed  out.  I'm  happy  with  my  decision.

I got 2 from the fan club and traded one for a Georg Sacul when he first came out. :P
