The only way I see these working for collectors would be to put them on vintage style blister cards to really play up the retro style of these figures. Even if they did that, unless it's something brand new, I'm not buying any. I started buying the new figures because they were an improvement over what I had as a kid. The R2-D2 released in '95 or '96, while awful by todays standards, was so much better than the one I got in 1978 that it sucked me right into collecting. Better sculpts (monkey face leia excepted) and eventually better articulation kept me hooked. There is absolutely no incentive for me to go backwards with collecting.
