Historically, the prices drop once the frenzy is over, and 1023 is a decent number. I think it depends on your financial state and if paying more is worth it to you personally. Also, now there a quite a few Snow White dolls, and I think more people would spend a bit more to get the original (e.g. Elsa). I want the doll, but I'm willing to wait and I'm fine with it taking several months for a decent price (although I think they'll drop much quicker). I bought the Shanghai Snow White when she came out so I could have a Snow White and I have no regrets, but I did overpay and she's still pretty obtainable. Prices aren't soaring like they once did. I was even able to get a red Jasmine, COA and NRB, for $135 a couple of months ago. The box is a little bit damaged on the side, but even deboxed she's worth much more to me. I just really wanted the doll but wasn't willing pay nearly what she was going for and lucked out one night. (She was $900+ after D23 and evened out around $700, but I've seen for $500, to give you an idea) I've overpaid for some of the dolls, but they made me happy when I got them, and didn't get in the way of mortgage payments, so no regrets. I love coronation Elsa and paid about $400 over a year ago and have seen her go for less than $200 now. Still, no regrets. She was worth to me what I paid. I think you have to just weigh your situation. How patient are you? How frugal are you? Get it now if it'll make you happy, you can afford it and you're not going to be upset seeing for $100 or so less. Sometimes it's worth paying more, especially if you aren't wanting to put in the time on Ebay stalking and waiting. Good luck, whatever you decide. BTW... I'm a long time doll collector and have spent an embarrassing amount of time on Ebay watching and waiting for deals over the years.
