Yup, pretty much nearly done the Vinty collection. Waiting for a few pieces in the mail, need to get a Romba with a hood
(this piece will subsequently drop dramatically in price, once I do) and then the loose collection will be complete. I only need to upgrade a few figures, maybe 5-6 to be happy. Almost all of the weapons are present, but some that are missing are with the upgrades, so I'll buckle down and get the advertised C-9+++
individual figures with the $4 shipping
and be done with it. No more bargain hunting here.
That leaves me wanting something new. I'm still toying with the trilogo carded stuff, but know I won't ever finish that line thanks to a couple of extremely expensive pieces. I've contemplated doing the first carded appearance schtick as well, but again, probably more $$$ than I want to part with.
Vehicles are out - too big, too many and too expensive. Also not keen at the moment on playsets due to space constraints. Not sure what else there is that I want, so I'm thinking about the two smaller lines, Droids and yes, embarassing though it may be, Ewoks figures.
So, difficulty? Price? Completeness? Comments are all welcome.
I'm not terribly worried about prototypes or unproduced second generation stuff, that's beyond my desire (I've never seen these shows even once
). So who are the toughies in these lines? Should I be expecting to part with considerable sums of money? From scouring ebay, I've seen a fair number of the Droids common stuff come along, most of it carded surprisingly and relatively cheap. Seems blasphemous to buy carded stuff to open, but some of those bubbles are so yellow they're almost brown.
I've noticed that R2 and 3PO seem to be quite pricey and relatively rare on ebay, but the rest are rather more common. Is this accurate?
As far as the Ewoks go, I haven't a clue, largely due to my aversion to small furry cute movie ruining midgets. I occasionally see some and lost a few auctions on them on the weekend, only because I wasn't around at the end. No big, just curious to see the pricing, seemingly around $15 or so a piece.
Help me ___, you're my only hope
