    I officially kicked off my Christmas Purchases a moment ago. 48" tall Darth Vader, motion activated talking, can set it to Friend mode or Foe mode. First store I heard had it wanted $164, and I found it on Amazon for $89.99.

    They got a Stormtrooper also. Amazon had it for $137, Toys R Us has it for $99.99. I might hit Toys R Us tonight.

    I gotta set up a video camera for when my kid runs into the living room and sees it next to the tree. He'll probably think it is an invasion.

    50/50 if I buy extras to resell on ebay. If some people are trying to price gouge already, it could get crazy come Christmas, or in a couple months when they are all gone.

    I've been buying up original merch from the first three movies over the past 5 years. Hope the investment pays off.

    Coolest thing I had from the original movies was the complete Hoth micro collection, w/ the die cast figures. Had 2/3 of Bespin also. Wound up giving them all to my younger cousin after Return of the Jedi came out.

    Stockpiling. We'll hit the mother load one day. Just like they did in the 90's with those Beanie Babies!

    Good luck! I've got a collection of the Funko horror selection and those little fuckers are expensive so I know you have some $$$ invested on those walls.
