Yes, it is rare, but when you consider that in 1982 Star Wars collectors were spending about $120-150 to own the first release of the original VHS cassette of the film that started it all, the $100-200 it is worth today doesn't sound like we are talking about a bonafide put-your-kids-through-college collectible. That isn't what makes this an award winning Totally Ridiculous Auction Hall Of Fame entry however. What does is the fact that the description is lifted directly off of a site that clearly states the item's true value, and still the seller thinks they can get $18,500.00 (or best offer) for a VHS cassette. Yikes! Maybe if the seller receives enough $100-200 offers, he'll get it. Sideways happy face.

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
