I would get rid of my Yalker (yellow stalker), but I have big plans for him in my next lil comic strip thing.
Thinking of dropping a rather large rock on him maybe. Not sure yet.

I got my black Timber variant on eBay for $10 in the first few weeks it was out. I'm so glad i didn't wait to buy it like I was originally going to.

Final price for Yellow Stalker $182.55, now that's just crazy. Why in the hell would someone pay that much for a little plastic man? I know, I know, because he can. But really $182.55, how many retail figs can you buy with that kind of loot? Thats roughly 28 figures for that kind of money. The price people will pay to get what they want.

the yellow stalker was the 1st one i found. i didn't see another for 3 months. i found him on the way back from the con in kentucky. way outta my way off the highway. i think that fig means more to me than $200 because of the story that goes behind the way i found him. i shall keep that $5 figure.

I have a hard time believing that Ebay reflects "reality" when it comes to the value of collectibles. It seems that an item will fetch a certain price based on the whim of the day. Kinda like those people who bought international carded figures for $100 thinking they were prototypes.

Variants are worth the same as any of the other figures. Its those people who fall for it pay out the ear for it. Unless the variant is something different(scuplt wise) then its just another cool figure. I'm really good at painting( as you can see in my customs) so I have made variants myself.

I've been wanting a yellow Stalker, been thinking about trading my silver PPD for one.

nobody will trade (IMO) a silver PDD for a yellow stalker....especially now that the market is driving it's (stalker) "value" so high.

Also, a big factor to keep in mind is there are a LOT of "former fans" re-entering the arena because of the 25th line. Many of the aforementioned fans are also completists.
People look at price guides and see a "book value", and determine what they'd spend based on that value.
Also, as mentioned, if a person has the means to, and they want the piece bad enough, they will pay out the ear for it. Does that make them "dumb" or something? Perhaps, but to each their own. Unless I'm giving a person money, I can't tell them how to spend it, or shun them for what they spend it on.
Oh, and I too found a Yalker (great name! ) on pegs, and it was also my first found 25th figure.
