I can't help but think that the people who would buy this **** instead of digging in on a true vintage collection probably look (in their own way) just like the guy in the meme.....
Ha, that's great.

In defense of those buying these retro lines though, if you were never around to get them when they first came out or were cheap on the secondary market then getting a re-release CAN be a more economic solution (especially in the case of Star Wars). Or maybe you've got the figures but none of the accessories, etc. There are reasons to jump in on some of these lines.

The people I don't get are the ones buying every freaking one of these re-releases, or saying they're getting them just for the boxes. Those people are headed for a collector crash at some point.
