The Funhouse has two figures that don't come in other sets and offers arguably the best package (minifigs, playset, price) among all the sets in the wave.True, but that assumes those figures won't become available in something else next year.

Got ya'. My son just started watching Ninjago so he would probably love this. This is the only set that I would want to build but it looks like it's now sold out.
^Personally I hope they never re-release Cloud City. I have way to much money invested in those figures/sets for there to be a re-release and a "sinkage" in price of the old figures/set!
I hadn't paid attention to the Emerald Night aftermarket prices until a few minutes ago. I was surprised to see them selling for $175+. I think @LegoFanTexas has good insight into this. But you also see the investment market dynamics happening here, with him considering buying up all of the lower end of the market, thus driving up the price overall.
@LegoFanTexas - I am surprised you only have 12 Death Stars! Thanks everyone, great conversation here as usual.-Dan
I regards to the Death Star minifigs... even the characters that haven't had significant updates since 2008 still have the old solid black eyes. And the stormtroopers have the plain black heads (which I actually prefer). And let's not even discuss ANH Luke's hair... So the minifigs in that particular set are all actually pretty dated, which is just another reason I'd like to see it go out and make room for a nice $300-$400 Cloud City.
^It just doesn't feel appropriate to talk about minifigs on an important thread such as near-EOL sets. It's like talking about kid toys at the adult table where serious topics such as profit, inventory and discounts are the main course. In a way, I almost feel like some portions of the community would wish minifigs to disappear altogether. Just expressing a view as to why SamIam thought it a better idea to discuss mini-figs separately.
