I think many plan on buying 2, just to sell 1 later.. It will return its investment, this maybe 1 I actually open up & keep other 1 with other figs shelved forever..

I buy for myself for my own collection not to resell. If I do it is because I intend to get a better version of the item I'm selling (recently happened to my AT-AT helmet, I sold it to get a better one) o because some important problems occur. I never buy to resell just to make some money off collectors.

If I buy this figure I'll go for the regular version, I simply don't need the EX hand stump, which I'll never display it with. At least the ANH Force choke hand could be used a bit better than this one IMO

SS is limiting 1 ex per customer, so I got 1 of each. & only need 1, just Spice & others keep telling me to get crap for trade?
I have never sold anything SW that I did not have 2 or more of & never for profit, just to help a fellow collector fairly.
I want the collector to keep collecting & SW is not a tool to make profit off of unless you are a scalper & only care about money.
I want the SW stuff & could careless about money & just wish I had Glass Cases big enough to display it all...

As I said countless times I collect for myself. Never flipped or scalped like some others. I sold my AT-AT helmet for a price that all real prop collectors said it is more than fair and even too cheap.

As for Vader figure I passed on the EX easily. Might get the regular locally unless have something better to do with my money.

 :-[  I HAD to Fox, I missed the LAST Vader way back when.  I was laid off at the time and sadly one I missed, plus I think this one is way better. To hell with the price! Thanks to Penter for the reminder too.  :) ;)
There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

I will chew on those bullets all day long... I need more lead in my diet anyway..
I bet this will be the hottest figure SS does & in time his value will prove it..
I would rather get 1 for $250 than try to chase 1 down later for triple or quadruple the price..

I have seen Amazon & ebastards already selling their Preorders for $5-800? WTF!!
What will it be priced at in 2016? 1st Vader ex MIB goes for $1000+ I do not get why? Glad I got 1 at $125...
This was a "Bite the Bullet" moment & smile while doing it, knowing in time, you have something super special.
