What were you expecting to pay for high grade examples then?

Wasn't suggesting that these specific figures were priced inappropriately; rather just a rueful comment on current prices in general. Humour doesn't always translate well in cyberspace.

These prices are indeed substantial, however will collectors in 2027 look back wistfully at 2017 prices when equivalent palitoy Mocs will no doubt be unobtainable for any less than £7k and £8k + a piece? :shock:

My view for what it's worth is that prices will continue to rise steadily until those of us in our mid thirties and forties are six feet under and then tail off significantly as younger collectors will have no nostalgic or emotional investment in such iconic pieces. Lots of other variables will also come into play around that time as well e.g. Deteriorating condition of the pieces due to natural processes inherent in the pieces and rising costs of conserving them, much less interest in physical toys among young people who are more involved and interested in computer gaming leading to a massive fall off in interest. It is going to be a case of who is left carrying the parcel when the music stops in my view. Still, there are an interesting 3 to 4 decades left...... :lol:

Just wait until the Chinese become interested, then were all screwed.

cheers. Steve


Hi

I know this is an old post and this question has already been asked but are the 20 backs still available?

If yes could you let me know which ones and the prices?

Thanks for your time.

I disagree with the popularity in collecting tailing off and therefore the value if this was the case then Golden Age Comics would now be worthless. Comics have increased in value significantly in the past 10 years both an Action Comics Volume 1 and a Detective Comics Volume 27 in a high grade can fetch over a million now and yet their principal characters date back to 1938 (Superman) and 1939 (Batman). The films live on with continued popularity and the comic books continue to rise in price (there is no price limit). I recently watched Rogue One and felt quite emotional at the end it was the best Star Wars film I have seen since the Original Trilogy so much so that I started collecting on Jan 5th 2017. I find it hard to believe that future and present generations who love the Star Wars films will have no interest or fascination in its roots or desire to collect because they are too busy playing Call of Duty!

If the Chinese enter the market then I am sure 8D8 will become very popular overnight.

Yeah I don't think there is much chance of the Chinese getting into Vintage Star Wars, although I would have said that about expensive wine 10 years ago and now they just buy it to give away as a gift. :shock: :?
