As collectors we've all spent unhealthy amounts of time looking for that one item that continually eludes us, and often when we do find it we then consider the asking price and try to weigh out its value. In the case of the Original Kenner Han Solo (Hoth Battle Gear) figure with tan moulded legs and how difficult it is to spot in images on eBay, variation collectors need to consider the value of their time, and come to terms with the fact that all the time you sink into finding this variation that is only worth $10 may have actually costed you hundreds of dollars worth of your time. That said, a nice clean Buy It Now of $85.50 for a confirmed hard-to-spot variation doesn't sound so unreasonable. When it comes to the toy hunt your time has a value. Make sure you appreciate its worth when factoring in the cost of an item when it is finally found.

Poll
Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
