$800 LEGO Millenium Falcon? Yes! $170 TBS6 FO TIE Fighter? NO WAY!

The Toy Run Podcast Facebook page has started a pretty interesting discussion about how collectors view LEGO versus Hasbro. The discussion is so good that I think it warrants bringing this out of social media and to the Star Wars fan site community where it belongs. Here are the thoughts and questions paraphrased:

LEGO collectors went crazy for the UCS Millennium Falcon. It sold out within a day or two and no one balked at the price. Likewise, there aren’t too many complaints about its size or the space it takes up. The only complaints seem to be that it’s sold out and there are still people who want to purchase it.

Then you take the Hasbro Star Wars action figure crowd of collectors. Hasbro finally gives us a HUGE FO Special Forces TIE Fighter for $169 in The Black Series 6″ line and it pretty much bombs at retail. It didn’t even sell out 2 years later (!) at $50 online this past Black Friday.

Why is a Lego collector willing to pay $800+ (and is happy about it) while a Hasbro Star Wars action figure collector doesn’t want to spend $170 for a big vehicle? It’s perplexing.
