I have a question that perhaps someone here can answer: When Hasbro releases a new version (or just the old sculpt in a new box) of a vehicle that was originally part of the Kenner line (ie, Shuttle, AT AT, Skiff, etc), does the Vintage price typically hold steady or has it dropped upon the new release?
Just like Barada, I'm not in it for the value...I just want the toys. So when I paid $150 to a comic book shop guy a few years back for a vintage AT AT, it was worth it to me...at the time. Had I known that a couple years later a similar version of the toy would be released, I most likely wouldn't have bought the vintage despite the relatively minor alterations.
But, with items like the Skiff and the A Wing, not in a million years would I pay anyone some inflated price for the vintage version when pretty much the exact same thing can be had for around $20 or so.
The figures are different in that most of the sculpts are radically different from the vintage models, although, again, something like Amanaman is close enough to the original that the inflated vintage value doesn't seem to make such a purchase worth it.
