Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Depends. Opinion is divided. When it comes to much larger vehicles like the Millennium Falcon, X-Wing, AT-AT Walker or the upcoming MTT Droid Carrier then yes, most want at least a couple of lights and sounds, especially if they're shelling out premium-level dollars. But smaller ships and vehicles not so much. They cost less(in some cases far, far less)so collectors don't really expect lots of flashing lights and sounds on the smaller ones. Besides, adding lots of electronic f/x to a ship as relatively small as the Naboo Fighter would just make it more cost prohibitive. It's already expected to retail for at least $30 before tax if not higher and enough people are already grumbling about that as is.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
