Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!
I once saw a flea market vendor who was selling a carded Hasbro action figure of Darth Revan from the Star Wars EU continuity. Great condition. No cracks or openings in the blister. The cardback looked to be in terrific shape.
$80 was his asking price.
I was polite, complimented the guy on his table and display, said "thank you" and walked away.
Eighty bucks for an action figure that at the time was barely four or five years old? Eddie don't play that.
Wow. That's insane. Even if the figure is in mint shape, it takes time for it to be really valuable.
Heck the ones I have aren't mint, have a little opening on the bottom, but other than that they're good. Considering it's been a little over 10 years, that's pretty nice. Wouldn't have paid more than I did though.
