Hmmm.  I know a store that (within the last month, anyway) had all three
of these in stock.  And a MaxiForce 3-D and three or four Impluse 2-Ds as
well. And some other old stuff. At original retail prices, even.

On the one hand, since these auction prices seem to be pretty consistent,
snatching these up would be a profitable thing to do.

On the other hand, this kind of profit motive is exactly what's spoiled
the Beanie Baby experience for countless kids already.

On the other hand, I doubt there are too many kids whose day would be made
by spotting a Super Vega in an out of the way hobby store.

On the other hand, _my_ day would have been made if one of those rockets
had been a Saturn something or even an orbital transport...
