Value and financial gain (return on the "investment") isn't an issue for me. That's actually a big thing that has turned me away from other things I've enjoyed collecting. Guys hoarding up pieces just to flip them for an inflated profit all because they think it's gold or some sh*t. Kinda sad really. The only time cost and value are an issue for me is when I need a miniscule part to complete a piece and someone wants a ridiculously over inflated price for it. I really do like the "show accuracy" on the 3rd part pieces tho, that's what draws me in. I think once I get my G1 collection where I want it I'll enjoy it for a spell and then sell and move on. We'll see...........Roadbuster wrote:That's the way to go now-a-days. G1's are steadily declining in value (unless you own something super rare and complete... like the Japanese G1's) while 3rd party figures are SKYROCKETING in value once online retail stores sell out. Not only do they look better and have more poseability but it makes more financial sense too as selling them to make your money back (sometimes doubling or tripling your investment) isn't hard at all to do.duttry98 wrote:I tell ya what, you guys keep flashing these gnarly looking 3rd party guys and I MIGHT have to sell off my g1 collection and start collecting these. I love the "show accuracy" these things possess.
Really digging some of these Generations Voyager Class pieces that are out as well.
