Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!
Good example...but I feel sorry for the folks who go on eBay and spend $99.99 plus shipping and handling for an action figure that's only a year or two old. I have holes in my collection too, but you're not going to see me blowing a hundred bucks on one single action figure, no matter how hard it was to find in stores. Not an action figure that's four inches tall or shorter. If it were a foot or 18 inches in height, was a spitting image of the TV or movie character and came in a great-looking box? Maybe. Possibly yes. But not a small blister-carded figure that was in retail stores since the last midterm Congressional elections.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
