I'm going to hoard all the 2007 UGH figures I can!!  I'm going to put them all in Star Cases and then put them into storage!!

Then, in 15 years I'll sell them off and use the HUGE sums of cash I'll get to put my kids through college!! 

After all, take a look at the ridiculously high prices the 2006 UGHs are fetching on eBay!  Nearly $7 each with shipping!!   :o

They won't be worth anything unless you get them graded by the AFA Jeff.

I wonder if the idea of coins (medallions?) will have an impact on the secondary value of the UGH this time around then...  Personally I saw only 3 UGH figures total last year as I recall...  I have a Vader sitting here I had for a friend who bailed.  Didn't see much though.

The coins, since they're trying to make them ultra collectible, may impact how the secondary market is for these...  Or it may not and my speculating may just be total BS.

I do think the gold coins will be more 'valuable' in the future than the silver plastic hologram figures.  I thnk there's a lot of excitement about the coins because A.) they are character specific and B.) their nod to the original POTF line - which is quite valuable if you have a complete set.

I just hope there is not a gold coin for every figure this year.

Didn't Hasbro mention in a Q&A that this years UGH's would be produced in a greater quantity? Or have I been doing crack again?

I just hope that there will only be a few of them like they did last year. I beleive it was around 10 or so. I would like to get all the gold coins, while last year i didn't care. Here's hoping for more luck.

I only found 2 UGH figures last year (Fett & Snowtrooper) of which I kept the Fett just because I thought it was a cool looking figure in the package. Personally, I don't really care for chases unless they relate to a character I like/collect. This time around I'll stick to the mentality of "if I find it, i'll buy it" but i'm certainly not driving myself bonkers looking for them...

I actually found quite a few UGH's but just did not care about them either way.  I took a UGH CMD Cody and opened it right up.  I probably should have sold it on Ebay for $30 or whatever it was going for at the time.  Oh well.  That is why I am poor  :P

UGH's this year can sit or others can chase em down. I won't spend extra money on figures I have since I open anyway.

Anyone got any silver UGH holograms laying around?  I'm trying to assemble a loose set.

I don't think i am going to spend extra money this year, but i am going to make more of an effort to search for them compared to last year. I didn't look at all. I found 2 on the pegs and that was all i bought.

My buddies and I here are split on the TAC UGHs, half are gonna collect them the other half are gonna ignore them. I'm the only one that's going to attempt to get a pair each, one to open, one to stay carded.

I'm going to play UGHs like I played them last year, buy them if I see them. (I ended up finding an entire set last year.)
