regarding your comments about people buying more than 1 item…as someone who doesn’t live near the parks…. people buying these for ebay allow us to get items that we can’t get hold of as well as people picking items up for other collectors

It’s not the purchasing of extras that is troubling, it’s the purchasing of extras and then reselling them at an inflated price that hurts collectors, IMO.

I haven’t listen to the podcast yet, but I agree with Annemarie. If the sellers that bought their extras would put them on ebay as auctions and let the market set the price, I think fewer people would have a bad taste for this practice.

Exactly. or, pick up an extra and trade. most people picking these up for ebay aren’t collectors, they are sharks.

sadly because i live like a few hour drive away from wdw and dont have annual passes i cant go the parks that much. and yesterday i just bought tha abe copper variant off ebay. Truthfully, i cant stand auctioning on ebay so i just get “buy it now”s. and there are a lot of people who dont inflate the price and make just under the market price range.

With regards to your comment about supply and demand, its a double edge sword.

Loved the idea of some Jawa Jr’s, but taking it one step forward… How about a Brave style set but with R2D2 & 3 Jawa Jr’s depicting the scene where R2 is captured by the Jawas. If you didn’t want R2 you could always choose another droid (R5D4) similar to the scene when the Jawa’s sell Luke & Uncle Owen the droids.

With the rise of internet marketing and social media you can make disney do something about the dumpster divers. If enough people complain several times on Facebook, twitter, email, etc. because it hurts the brand. They still might not do anything but it’s worth a shot. As for LE and prices I think they keep testing the waters especially how popular Disney Afternoon and certain 9″ ended up being. As for more releases I was disappointed at first because if you did not start from the very beginning you always felt like you had to catch up. I did not… Read more »

Loved the podcast. You were very right about the Comic Con QR Codes. It was a PR nightmare.

PS. I loved when Annemarie compared the Beast to Michael Bolton. I agree. The Beast with all his long glowing locks isn’t very attractive.
