So this guy obviously has an unused Cantina Adventure playset and is selling it for parts at crazy prices.

Must say I would have been tempted had the prices not been so out of this world. Looking for the insert and instructions for this set.

I see no problem in breaking up a beater or discoloured ships and taking off parts that may be perfect to complete a better condition ship.

Is no different to collectors painting and making customs from knackered figures which is widely accepted. Most ships are incredibly common like the figures so no real loss to collectors. It's not like in 10 or 20 or 300 years time, you'll be struggling to find a Millenium Falcon for sale.

It makes you a bit of a dick if your specifically doing it on an industrial scale just for the £££ but unlikely they would be breaking up mint or nice complete ships.
