i was checking out the completed auctions for action fleet, and i see that the episode I tail enders are getting prices far in excess of what the e-wing and the tie defender ever got.
ships like the royal star ship, sith infiltrator and droid control ships as closing in the 200+ range
the royal star ship wasn't even a tail ender, that came out with the 2nd wave and was quite avaialble at retail.
i had to order the last three ships, the infiltrator, droid control ship and att from d&s toys back in 2000, cause i never saw those three in a toy aisle ever
so once again, we have toys from the action fleet line that were never ditributed well, getting prices which just shouldn't be for a plastic toy. i guess as people become aware of how good action fleet toys are, and then realise that particular ships were made and that they can't readily find them, they are willing to drop a load to have them in their collection.
but of course if you ask hasbro about the line, they'll always tell you that market demand for these is quite soft, and doesn't support the cost of tooling up and producing these at the retail level
even the trade federation landing ship and republic gunship are selling high in the 150 range
c'mon hasbro, get with the program, people want these things, there's no reason to not make action fleet available.
