Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!
Thanks, my friend.
I have to confess...Wedge isn't AS badass and epic looking in person as you think he's going to be thanks to his near-legendary status as the most elusive action figure of 2011...he's just a generic Rebel X-Wing Pilot body with a Denis Lawson head(a quite good one, I must say...they nailed Lawson's neutral facial expression and hairstyle pretty well) and a Wedge-accurate flight helmet. But I'm just glad to get a couple of this bad boy just to mark him off my list after all this time. The Bespin Han is really nice to get my hands on as well...it's not a bad take on Harrison Ford from the second film. As recently as about a month ago the 2011 version was still going for as high as $99.95 on eBay. Wedge and Han were the gold and silver medals of Vintage Collection hunters up until now. With both being rereleased and in hopefully wider numbers the asking prices on both are starting to drop pretty sharply.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
