Some exclusives may be a bit hard to get due to high costs, eg. SDCC Silver Darth Vader. And not to forget there's really a lot of exclusives.

Which line of MR are you looking at? The vehicles are very expensive, but really cool.

Thanks..you are right..I am looking at those potf2 toy expo and showtime..potf2 expo is still okay to find...

MR aiming at the dual signature and anakin se only..

all also love them..but concern is the budget and display issues. like..whether is cool....easy to find place..the carded wise..most likely is to use...starcase..but only a few of them..may not look nice to me and

so far for MR starwars line, the dual signature items are :

- Vader ANH saber
- Vader ROTS helmet

and it's really expensive :shock:

value there is.. only in what you like ... you see....
collect whatever you desire.happy it makes you..value it has.
...rely not.. on what others perceive....

have fun collecting..sw galaxy is filled with scum and viliany of merchandisers who push out trolleys after trolleys thrash to the unsuspecting sw fan :cry:

i used to collect hasbro toys.. figures ..ships... creatures.. anythnig everything.. till one day i woke up and found myself surrounded by cartons of plastic crap.. why i say crap. cos they kept reissuing old stuff in "variant" paint jobs.. i got sick and stopped collecting altogether! :shock:

haha
now i stick to resin and statue stuff...and prop replicas... for the reasno that plastics and vinyls dont store well in our climate. unless u have a temperature controlled place.. ur pasticsmight turn color and become sticky with time..its a frustration...
so i just stick to the so called "high end" , get those i realy like.. and hey..
in the end.. less is more :D

have fun man!
