He's a tough one. I've seen him on eBay for as much as $70 or $80 USD and the cheapest ones run for no less than $30-ish (and that's if there even are any that cheap). He's probably the most expensive and most elusive figure in the first two waves of the Vintage Collection.

Him and C-3PO definitely.

The VC Shocktrooper is also an added bonus. Great set.

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

Threepio's prices are ridiculous. Also, the three VC Boba Fett variants (Empire, ROTJ, "Revenge") can often command high pricepoints depending on the seller and which one they've posted. The "Revenge" variant is probably the most valuable.

Vader's belt buckle is the activation button for his light-up lightsaber effect. I know, I have this figure. This is a repack of a 2012 light-up Darth Vader and not brand new at all. But yeah, the "Press/Try Me" demonstration hole in the packaging isn't exactly located in the most innocent place.
Especially with the text reading "The Rise of Darth Vader"

Padme should have stayed with him even after he turned to the Dark Side. It's obvious she was missing out on something.

I saw those as TRU the other day, so they are out. If I didn't already have the older Art Asylum ones, I might have picked them up.

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

I was wrong about the "Man of Steel" Hot Toys video...it wasn't Hot Toys, but Sideshow which I think OdoWan brought up here before??

I might have to see if I can get those ST Diamond Select figures.

Nice. I kind of like how Kirk and Khan look more like they're just drunk than fighting.

Brand new Black Series 3.75" action figures are announced by Hasbro to appear in future wave assortments!

Nice. Now that's a pretty good lineup of characters if you ask me.

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

Plagueis is the one I'm most excited about. Plus, super-articulated updates of Dagobah Training Luke and Yoda might look amazing. The 2004 figures with mud/swamp bases from the Original Trilogy Collection are still great and hold up nicely after almost a decade, but they don't have modern joints and could really benefit from some ball-jointed elbows, knees and ankles (Luke could, at least....I don't know how much they could do with a figure as small as Yoda that they haven't already).

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

I might get the Jedi Training Yoda for my brother who's a huge Yoda fan. Is this the first Darth Plagueis figure?
