Quoted from DaveH:
Being able to afford it doesn’t mean you find value in it. That’s the actual issue.
That is exactly why I spent $9000 on a Dialed In le & have a deposit on a POTC le, instead of $5500 or $7500 on a Star Wars.
The value in my mind was very clear. I'm getting way more value for my NIB $ on a JJP title, even though I'm spending more $.
At the $5500-$7500 price range, I'm buying HUO quality Stern's(LOTR, TSPP, IM, etc.) & Bally/Williams title's, not NIB Stern's, they are a joke.
