This question is sorta directed to Joe O but I'm sure several others have some input on this.

SO - Why is the AT AT Driver MOC Tri Logo so much more than other tri's? At least from what I've seen while looking for one I've noticed they are not as expensive as some but more expensive than most.

Just curious. Any input would be appreciated!

Thanks!

While he isn't very rare people pay more because of the alternate artwork, on the Tri release his chest panel was airbrushed out, this is kind of an old school myth that *all* the alternate photo art pieces are rarer than others when in fact many are quite common.

(The only thing Brians toys are good for - nice pictures to illustrate something haha)

I would just wait one out Dallas, there is absolutely no reason why you can't get one for under $80 in my opinion, depending on your condition criteria, he is not rare at all.

Thanks Joe! Great information. I guess it's all in attention to detail. I never noticed the airbrush job. I wonder why they did that?

Thanks for the price estimate too. That seems much more reasonable than some of the $200+ examples I've seen. This will be my first and probably only tri logo so I'm trying to arm myself with as much ammo as I can.

Free plug. lol!

D, anything over $150 to me is way to much. You can score them, like Joe said, under $80. Looking forward to seeing how the collection grows.
