See, this is where I can't help.You've got me thinking... up till now i was adamant that i would not touch the Rebels line, but after reading what you've just said, i sort of agree, you may have a point; so, strictly from an investment point-of-view, i will grab him. Thing is, which one do you think will end-up the rarer, helmet on or off? Where i am at the moment, every store is saturated with the helmet off version.
Every store around me only has the helmet ON variant. I've only seen the helmet ON variant once.
I would pick up both if you have the option. I don't know which is the "rarer" variant yet because it looks like the figure hasn't sold well enough to distinguish which variant is being phased out.
