I got the qui-gon LE new in a sealed box from Starworld on Ebay. they still have lots left, brand new, sealed boxes. they are charging $320 for these right now.
this is still well below the original retail price of $369. anytime you can get brand new factory sealed collectibles for less-than retail, then this is always a good deal.
(and there is something special about opening the sealed box and getting the "full experience", so to speak ---
for me, personally, I like knowing that the item is in "perfect" condition, handled only by me --- I like to buy these things "new" not "used". if you take my meaning. ;)
for my money it would be worth spending the extra $50 for a "new" item -- but that's just me).
Also, because they are a large retailer, the customs process was streamlined. When you buy collectibles from a private collector then they will scrutinize the shipment more closely -- it's more likely that a private citizen would try to cheat the system. but, coming from an authorized MR retailer, the customs-office didn't even open the box on this one (shipping from the US to canada) -- the paperwork was processed in record time. ((I've had items sit in customs for MONTHS because the sender misreported the market value -- this won't happen when you buy from a major retailer, they will trust the retailer and move on)).
