Yeah, and there's a tin gun on the cover of Ray Gun -- but I don't see people clamoring for it. I agree that there's SOME cache from being on the cover but I don't think it plays that much of a roll. (A reverse example: the pyro isn't on any covers and it still brings huge money.)

Beautiful toy. I love that it still has that old price tag!

Oh yeah, definitely unique. And in this case, nice looking, too. I just quibble with their being called prototypes. Not disagreeing with anything else.

You've got a good point, Fin -- the economy vs desirability. The reality of being able to shell out. Clearly no one's grabbed this baby yet, and as you say, it might not be for lack of wanting.

But then again, we know the big spenders are out there. No less than FOUR Renwal Planet Jets (well, three plus a British Cracker Jet) have sold for crazy, crazy prices in the last few months. More than one person's tossing cash around.

I also know there are a number of really high end collectors out there who could drop this kind of money if they wanted to -- but I bet they already have one. I'm NOT a big spender and I've already got two, so I'm sure those really big sharks have theirs, too!

This is really fascinating. Those Renwals were snatched up like THAT. This is as rare a gun -- maybe rarer? -- and it's just sitting there. Pricey but not insanely so. Bit of a head scratcher.
