This kind of stuff is what really makes me angry! Some guy walks into a store and buys every one of the boba fett figures that is released! He is not buying them to play with he is not buying them for a collection, he is buying them to make money off them! I collect all star wars toys but boba mainly. I can afford to buy everyone that the store has but I am happy with one. People forget that these are kids toys and I sleep better at night knowing that if some kid walks into the store and has the chance to get a boba fett toy that he is gonna grow up loving the same thing as us. This is not a great collection, this guy would not love every figure that he has! This is a some one that is trying to make money off something that should be a passion not something where you are gonna rip other collectors off with cause they want one of the figures that you have a dozen of!
he aint doing it to make money he collects all SW figs like that... every variation..
I do it wih fett when i find it but being in the UK variants are hard to come by as so little product hits our small isle and when it does just one shipment of most things come in an no restocks like in the USA.
I have a friend who is a variant collector an keeps a close tabs on POTF2 etc to make sure he has it all.
we went to SWC3 together and he kept finding me fett stuff I didnt have from dealers there. but then I found a POTF2 dark flashback Leia with 00 padme pic on the back he spent over $2000 on it and it wasnt even mint !!
he and I will never sell our collections if we can help it we just love collecting. !
