I have a good number of IF200's 744 as well as a few SP's and love them.
But the HP will always reign supreme
I have a HP Lufthansa 747 which I got for steal thanks to some minor damage to the undercarriage and wings which was easily fixed. It is amazing, and I would kill for those NZ 747s, especially the LOR specials...I did in fact see a Legolas example sell for a good price some weeks back but had already spent my budget! I will agree with you that they are then best replica 747s as plastic can be moulded and joined better and printed on easier too. But, like you, I am also very happy with my IF and JCW 747s.

IF200 747s always cost around £99 from retailers in the UK over the past year, ok I've only been collecting since Feb last year but I haven't seen the price change in that time, up or down.
Most UK retailers seem to give a baseline price for JCW 747s as between £110 and £130...ok with membership discounts you can get them for less than £100 if you shop around. So if indeed the prices of 1:200 747s has dropped, this price fall is not reaching the customer, or not in the UK anyway?!
