Never got the Superman...just too busy to keep checking back in at the DC booth. Got lucky and got the Green Lantern and Batman from a fellow Lug mate.
Dude who scored those for you?
(I hope these links work)
I'm all about sharing :)
Well, to anyone that may win, I want the Bucky (or ironman, preferably bucky though). So to anyone that wins, and doesn't want to keep it, please contact me to hammer out a deal!
Take the original Batman figs for example, they were in high demand as they were the only way to have those characters in lego form. Now that there are new and (fairly) easy to obtain figures I imagine demand for the original versions has probably dropped.
There will always be collectors who what every version of every figure and are willing to pay for that privilege, but there are probably a lot of collectors (like myself) who are just as happy with a Batman fig from a (50p) newspaper promo instead of a $100 'exclusive'.
That said, I'd still love a Shazaam that is unlikely to appear in any sets. I guess that's what makes a figure a bit more desirable.
As long as there are collectors out there, the market will stay solid. As LEGO continues to get better, the number of collectors will increase, and to complete their collections they'll want the old figures too (paying premium prices to get them). That's my take on it.
