Value for these is basically determined solely by availability and quantity made. Many figures are considered valuable, but are in fact not. People are often led to believe a figure is rare and worth hundreds of dollars, when in actuality it is readily available and had a long manufacturing run. More often than not, one will see an expensive two hundred dollar figure and believe they will never see another again, so they purchase it. Not a day later in many cases you will see the same figure show up for twenty dollars. This is not to say there are not rare figures, there are many that are quite rare and valuable. The best advice is be aware, reasonable, patient and use our introduced and discontinued dates when available as a basic guide on how much to pay for a figure you want.
