    this is so kewl!!!!!

    I have one (it was a prototype - not a serialed unit). It is definitely 1 of the 2 most impressive DVD collectibles in my collection. The other is the Alien Head that I got from a UK site.

    Thanks for the heads up I just ordered the set I had been considering getting this but the price made me a little hesitant so I have held but at this price it is hard to pass up.

    Thanks,
    T.J.

    Mine, too! [​IMG] j/k [​IMG] I haven't even gotten the set. My wife would be too spooked! We're still arguing about where to store one particular family heirloom--a stuffed pheasant shot decades ago by my grandfather! [​IMG]

    oh well, for those that waited.

    My question....Mine is a prototype, it is labelled as such and does not have a serial number. Would this make it more or less valuable over the long term ??

    Just curious.

    I would guess coming from a collectables...fan (for lack of a better word), that, depending on the amount of prototypes that went out, these are usually more valuable then the serial numbers (baring a #1). This is provided it is a full quality prototype. It will at the very worst be worth as much as a production level one, but should never go for less then the full production one.
