Looking at the auction for this large Episode I lot is not just nostalgic, its a bit sad and a true cautionary tale about living life adhering to the collect to collect mantra. First off, there are a lot of great iconic collectibles that promised us the Dark Ages were over and we'd forever bask in the light of the Force, and for those of us around in 1999, there are many pieces we've all but forgotten about that are fun to see again. Sadly, none of it is worth a fraction of what the seller is asking. We'd be interested to see what the lot would go for on an open auction. Despite how much fun it is to look at everything included in this auction, at the end of the day it is just another entry into the TRA Hall of Fame, even if we wish it weren't.

Poll
While it can be argued that both are important to many collectors, the Probe Droid wants to know, if given the choice, would you demand Hasbro brought back all the articulation or improve the paint applications.
Great Paint applications are more important to me.
I'm all about multiple poses, so I'd rather see all the articulation come back.
