I'll throw out another vintage one (and provide a link this time). But this one is actually a rare part, technically it was never launched completely as a fig. You'll get the drift of it.
It's the trans-black ghost shroud (also available in red and bright light orange - I'm a little skeptical of the authenticity of the red and orange though).
I've heard the trans-black piece was available randomly in a Lego System Basic bulk parts box back in the day. If that's true - it is a very rare instance that Lego introduced a "chase" part - like sportscards. (I'm not counting the Collectible Minifig Series in my comments).
Trans-black Ghost Shroud
Well, I won't pretend I'm not humbled by your generosity. Thank you @Furry. I have sent you a PM.
$99.99 is cheapest in North America... Kapow!
It looks like Furry's helping you out so that's very cool. If something falls through, I'm sure I have an extra I can throw in for you the next time I send pollies to the staff here.
Lego Star Wars Toy Fair Nuremberg Darth Vader
Guess in the end you pay because he's in a plastic wrapper...
The Exclusives and Promos from Comic-Con & Toy Fair have done very well in the market on a reliable basis, but that's due to rarity mostly. Its the regular minifigs that are a surprise sometimes and are real eye openers as to what's possible in terms of returns for common figs. That's why I believe Ninjago is a winner in the near future, just look at Kai's Cycle going over RRP while its still readily available.

Another Craigslist find. Sadly though, I think I'm missing Momo, the lemur.
Cloud City Lando is passing the $100 threshold in bidding as well and probably is the second rarest Star Wars figure right now. (Again, excluding promos).
The batman sets have failed to come down generally as I think people are holding o to them waiting for the film and for superheros to go away. So the ones do sell are in higher demand.
I just wish I picked up a shiny Stormtrooper, I picked a box up from Tescos and this little kid came picked the one behind and then saw him later open his and he got the shiny stormy, I did not..
Iron Man already has 3 different figs....Promo; circular arc symbol on chest; triangular arc symbol on chest.
A good character for variants is Wolverine (Yellow movie suit, first trilogy black suit, origins movie leather jacket/jeans, brown/yellow Uncanny outfit with mask, black/yellow Weapon X), etc.
But take Superman for instance, how many outfits can you remember him in? Just 3 if you include a civilian Clark Kent and Bizarro. The Hulk gets 3 if you include Bruce Banner. But just imagine Professor X, Cyclops, Storm, Sabretooth. Slim pickings for alternates.
What other characters would have a lot of variants? We can't let Han Solo and Luke show the Heros up on this point can we?
Looking at the pics available, I think you're right ie. rifle vs pistol - I hadn't noticed that. The only other difference is the included magnet in the blister pack. The Ebay sellers assure buyers that the blister pack version is not glued so I guess if one is actually going to open it, they wouldn't mind a blister pack but for the promo mf collectors, it's gotta be the poly.
I would expect newer limited versions of figs to exceed the value of their previous incarnations. Who would choose one of the old lumps of plastic (eg gamorrean guard) over a new printed version?
No 'full' failures yet! ;o) One has been built, it's been seen, but since the license wasn't a lucrative one, TLG couldn't release it. A photo was taken at the time of sight but was quickly asked to delete it. The other....the other!!! The other looks like a 3po to me. I'd be pretty confident in saying that if you were to hold up one of the new figs to a bunch of non SW fanboys, 99% of them would reply "3po". That's what happened in this case.
Nothing I might say are predictions. I'd be scared stiff of getting it wrong - case proven. Everything I have comes from TLG.
I'm saying nothing more on it. :o) [Zip]
Your offer was a kind one though and has been noted. Thank you @Yellowcastle. :o)
I may seem greedy are you giving Shinys out? If so would it possible for me to have one?
I hate the fact some people can spend loads of money on one figure
Jabbas sail barge also does very well
They can now both be had for ~16£ together by buying the relative books from amazon (they are at 50% off at the moment)... But I don't really need the books.
I wish I had gotten my hands on a chrome stormtrooper.
How much would you give/sell them for
