Default Value ($) of Aun'shi when he's Discontinued

Since Aun'shi is not coming into the new codex, how much will he be worth on eBay after his discontinuation? Will he possibly get to $50? If so, I'll buy one and keep it in the blister.

Well, I dont think his value will go up THAT much, but a little bit. I think the coolest thing to do, however, is to buy him, wait 6 months to a year, take him out, and do the best dang paintjob you can do on him. Then take hm to a battle and play him as a regular Etheral. It'lll look so awsome compared to everyone elses main guy. Yours'll be unique (sp???) AND good painted! ;D

Maybe. So Aun'shi won't be a good investment?

Strictly money wise, I have no idea.

You never know. It might be worthwile to get a couple and hold onto them. It may take a while but *shrug* its unpredictable really. At the very least you can use him as a unique commander after you stop seeing the old Etherials.

Its hard to say since we don't have the new codex. I only like using him as Aun'shi, mainly because he had a 4+ Inv. save. Other then that, I went with the cheepest ehterial there was. No need to get him goodies like an honor blade when he didn't even have a save :.
He might become valuable afterwards since he is a relatively good sculpt, considering what the new guys look like. But I'm sure the consensus around here is still that its better to not have one.
Besides I'm sure GW will still have in archive, so I very much doubt you'll get to sell him off for $30.

What about in 2 or 3 years when everyone forgets about Aun'shi? Then will he be worth it? And if GW bombs (most likely no) before then, I'll just make him a nice model.

I got one for christmas and didn't return him in hopes that he'll go up. Other than that, I might paint and field him when I finish everything else I have to paint...

As far as an investment standpoint. No it probably will not go up in value. There isn't THAT big of a market in the OOP GW figures. Plus, the model will still be available through the online store in the classics range. If one couldn't find them hiding out in random games stores perhaps even in their clearance racks.

Yep. Any old special character models seem to find their way into the classics range 'as an alternative farseer!' or 'A differnt looking warboss' or '...thingy! Buy! Shineeey!'.

Even worse, the minature might just become an Ethereal. Bog-Standard Ethereal.

What probably would be worth it, annoyingly, is plastic models. I know I'd pay a bit for an old land raider just to have it sit there and be silly.
