Those prices certainly shot up towards the end!

Also was Vader holding a blue saber when the kid was putting him in the TIE fighter?
Put Captain Solo in the cargo hold!

Awesome! I am sure the interviewer was a timetraveller - some of the questions he asked implied he knew these toys were inevitably going to be very collectable one day! He also seemed disappointed when one 10yr old boy said he'd lost interest in SW and his younger brother destroys all his SW toys (understandable). If the interviewer does have a time machine I would be there in a milisecond... the memories of the superstore aisle of Star Wars eh? :shock:

If you go thru the Palitoy Adverts guy's YouTube account you'll find a bit of other vintage Star Wars things from the BBC and more. And I would know, it's my account.
