Hi Lee, Don't buy the figures if you think they will be worth something in the future. Buy it because you want to have them. The "valued" ones will be the original series back in '77. Nobody really collected them for a profit back them. Nowadays there are tons of figures and collectors out there. Sure their's gonna be the odd figure that worth a couple of bucks. Buy it thinking it will be worthless in the future. I know it sounds odd.If you're looking for an investment you're better of buying stocks The hard figure to find as I speak is the blue royal guard.. its really hard to find. The red guard is easily found at the moment. Did you go this Saturday (Apr 2) to any TRU? It was crazy... lots of people!
