I do love the model and would be a signature piece in anyone's collection.
It's big, so chances are it's worth that much in size alone. If I decide I'll fork that much money in one purchase at any point on a Starwars foundation weight than I'll buy this set... it doesn't look bad to me.
TLG has been known to cite inflation when defending set prices, claiming they aren't really rising as quickly (or at all) as many people suggest. Thus, I thought it was quite legitimate.
It sounds like the SW Advent calendar is going to be 5 dollars over the price of the reg advent and it has set interesting things in it than the other advent calendars..
Versions of both Dengar and IG-88 did previously appear in the 6209 Slave 1 set, but the new versions are IMHO a big improvement.
Again, if noone buys the SSD (which lets be honest, isn't going to happen) TLG will be forced to reduce its price.
Bottom line, if you feel it's overpriced, don't buy it. If 95% of the fans agree with you, the price will come down to reflect it.
Sure, the sets cost more than I'd like to be, but then we still buy. We're our own worst enemy.
I need to be pragmatic. Its a lot of money, and with a young daughter, it just feels too selfish. If there is a sale, thats when I will consider it. I really can't see this selling much at all. It's not even in the arena of xmas present values for older children like the Death Star and a couple of the other UCSs. It's purely aimed at adult collectors, yet in the current environment, even if you are comfortable, you have to think twice before spending £350 on one set ahead of all the other priorities and opportunity costs that the money could be linked to.
