All the sabers are getting some $$$.
I switched gears a few years back and went back to trying to get the role playing stuff.
Numerous reasons from a collectors standpoint other than it's pretty cool stuff:
A) The kids all seem to clamor for these, and around the Holidays the parents seem to always have them in the carts
B) That could mean A LOT of these getting opened/played with vs. figures, which even the kids today seem to want to "collect" and keep carded.
C) A lot of people buy these through the years and the $ always spike for Halloween (you'll see this now in Aug., wait until Sept. some decent prices for the common role palying guns/sabers)
D) A lot of costumers (which seem to alwways multiply year after year) will buy the "cheaper" ones and paint them/modify them for thier gear.
E) No hard evidence but as far as the supply side I would guess there are a lot less $20 blasters and sabers produced and sold than $6 figs.
Lots of reasons to collect the role playing items. BTW anyone out there have a nice "role playing focus?
