Anyone else hoping the recession might cause a few folks to choose to unload their collections? I'm starting to browse for lots, hoping there'll be a glut over the next year or so which will cause the prices to fall.
Kinda vulturesque of me, I know....
That's how I finsihed mine in the early/mid 1990s. I recall several ads in the papers (remember newspapers, kids? ) for people doing just that: got a Y-Wing (no bomb accessory, but an Ackbar staff in the cockpit) for $20, some extras of various loose figures less than $10 each, a Wampa or Dewback I think, perhaps others. It could become cyclical; you may do the same in a few years (hopefully you don't have to).
