That Elusive Action Figure

Everybody has one, that one action figure that no matter what you do, you just can't seem to find it within your grasp.

Oh it's not because you didn't try either. You've spent time getting up early to be there when the Toys 'R Us or Target store opens, hounded the overnight stockers at Wal-Mart to open the boxes they just pulled out from the back, and gone from one corner of your state (or country) to the other in search of that one figure, that one holy grail.

That ever elusive action figure for me is of course the Star Wars Expanded Universe Darth Revan figure from Hasbro. Sure I could go on eBay or Amazon and pay $40-$100+ on one, but let's be honest here, the figure was $8.99 when first released, can I actually justify spending that kind of cash?

Oh how sweet he looks, but seriously there's no way I'm spending that kind of cash. Possibly $20, but that's still pushing it too.

Now I ask you, what figure has eluded your collection, and at what cost would you go to have it within your grasp?
