You also have to factor in the total cost on these deals...
Is your time worth anything? Time spent parsing Craigslist, Bricklink, garage / yard sales, pawn shops, etc....
How much gas are you using driving around to garage sales, pawn shops,
Good Will, or duder's house from Craigslist?
How much are you paying in shipping?
Also consider buying now at retail price to hedge against marked up prices after a set goes out of production. Jabba's Sail Barge is a good example.... I picked it up at the store on sale... sure it wasn't cheap.... now check it out on BrickLink. Set goes for $140 with out any minifigs or $220 used but 'complete'... Jabba himself goes for $38, the Gamorrean Guard goes for $14, and Lando goes for $15.
I'd never pay those prices now for those figures or that set.... I'm glad I picked it up at 10% off retail.
Just saying that buying retail or even 10% off retail shouldn't be completely ignored.
