Although what was done to the above hurt the "value" of the case it was a really good idea. I never liked the Vader case as a kid because the figures always fell out when you opened it. Major design flaw. Didn't happen with the later C3PO case. Even after the C3PO case was released they didn't redesign the Vader case or at least the straps for it.
I ended up either throwing my Vader case away or put it in a garage sale or something to get rid of it. I disliked it that much. I actually stored all my figures in a cardboard box as a kid.
