How bad has Lucas damaged the brand? There's only one way to find out; I'm selling my loose Jorg Sacul figure on e-bay. If I get less than $30, no one cares about George anymore.

I dont think he can stoop lower than zombie stormtroopers. But hey, who knows. We might see "Dancing with Star Wars" on TV....

Nah, I doubt we'll ever see that (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTA9oLekoUc).

Jorg Sacul was never a hot seller on the aftermarket. It was overproduced, is all. And even though Thrawn documented all 4 variants (head paint was altered every week for a 4 week run), that business never got any traction.

I would think the loose alien figure of him from the multipack, or the mail-away Vintage-style figure would be hotter sellers.

I got one off eBay about a year ago for under $20 (wasn't that about the price at the Celebration?), and I ordered the Lucas Trooper when it was first available. Also found the Lucas Family set for less than $9 somewhere (I forget if it was online or at a shop). But do you have the Lucas TIE Pilot from the Action Fleet series?

I think Brianstoys is selling this for like $15. There's no way you hit $30 on eBay.

Still missing how Lucas damaging the brand (still debatable point) is tied to prices of Lucas figures on the secondary market. There some sort of formula or proof out there?

Yeah. Sold all my Action Fleet but I did hold onto that figure.

Simple economics, "Supply & Demand". As supply increases or demand goes down the price drops, and vice versa. Lets say in fact "Lucas did damage the brand" (theoretically). Said damage to brand turns off fans from wanting to buy/purchase items associated with the brand (on account that they don't like the brand as much anymore). Demand for items decrease (meaning more supply), thus the price has to drop to make a profit.
