Popped onto Facebook today and was amazed (well, not totally!) at some of the prices being banded about for loose figures:

Lando Skiff: £22 :lol:

Leia Poncho: £40 :shock:

The fact folks are paying them is what is really, really insane. I'm just waiting for the prices rise enough before I can sell up and invest in a small property, like the Isle of Man or maybe Guernsey.

Actually it's less community spirit, more cult.

And selling a collection for an old school friend.

And he didn't rip anything off its card to flog it either.

Prices are getting out of hand but buyers are just as to blame as sellers. If people didn't pay these ridiculous prices, sellers wouldn't be able to charge them.

I really can't understand why people pay so much money for production items, especially loose figures :( "Back in my day they were all £5 each and not a penny more" :lol:

Totally agree, but I'd perhaps load more of the blame on buyers. Learn more, spend less.

Totally depressing. Was looking back over the old for sale threads on the forum. The prices are unbelievable. Today's prices are a total horror show and only going one way! The worlds gone mad.
