Macguyver, your list is missing something. OH!!! That's it....
Lucas dumps all of his money into the production of the movie "Howard the Duck" in an attempt at a comeback.
As for the action figure... that's just dumb. The figure itself is bland, and the fact that he "was" going to be in something, and then left out should speak volumes of the character. Worthless. Perhaps it's just me, but I would rather spend four-thousand dollars on something that's a little more worthwhile than a cheap plastic toy - that if it had made it into production would've met the same fate as thousands of little green army men. You know what I'm talking about.
All I can think of to say to the buyer is... maybe it's time to move out of mom's basement and quit feeding the stereotype.
