How much is my figurine worth?
The price of your collectible on the secondary market is simply determined by supply and demand. Other factors to consider are auction price history (which is mostly out of date at this point), printed price guide values (also, not necessarily current), and recent sales by your dealer or exchange service. Some people, especially eBay™ sellers, consider rarity the ultimate value determinant, but rarity is sometimes difficult to determine in these days of the global internet marketplace, where items once considered rare surface with some frequency. On the other hand, if a piece is too rare, collectors will not be aware of it. By definition, then, this sort of piece cannot generate market demand until collectors become aware of it and consider it desirable.
