Guys,

Back in their day, how much did a Don Post Deluxe Vader and a Don Post Classic Action Vader actually cost?

I remember the price of the CA. It was $120. You had to love Galaxy Trading back then. The DP Deluxe was $1200, if memory serves.

Yes I remember $1200 for the DPD. My boss at the time opened an account with DP and got it for me wholesale.

I have a bunch of the old catalog and price sheets...I should dig around for them.

I got mine for wholesale value as well Mike. The guy I bought it from sold me his own personal DP Deluxe (Number 888) virtually new, and said he'd just buy himself another as a replacement.. I heard sometime later that he hadn't been able to get one as they'd already been discontinued!
