I used to be a regular customer on the Sideshow website. I would say that once a month I would get online and reserve a figure, whether it was Star Wars, Buffy, or Sideshow’s proprietary zombie offerings – The Dead. When I first started buying from Sideshow Collectibles their 1/6th scale figures averaged fifty bucks apiece.
Eventually they stopped producing Buffy and seem to have moved to different formats for The Dead. Star Wars has gotten prohibitively expensive and I think it’s GI Joe’s fault.
