  • A 1994 G.I. Joe Manimals Vortex MOC C-7 in its original packaging sold for $20,100 on eBay.
  • The Vlix action figure from the short lived Star Wars Droid’s cartoon series is so rare that no one knows if a mint condition figure still exists. The figure was never sold outside Brazil. It is believed that a loose figure could be worth $4000 whereas a mint condition boxed figure could be worth several hundred thousand dollars.
  • A Mego Robin figure with a Kresge Card sold at auction for over $12,000 in 2006. It is the only one of these figures known to exist.
  • A rare McFarlane Toys action figure of New York Yankees player Babe Ruth, sold for $13,600 in an eBay auction in 2009.

  • The G2 Protectobots and G2 Stunticons are some of the rarest Transformers ever made as only a very limited number (estimates say about half a dozen) were made as test items. Hasbro then decided to cancel the Generation 2 (G2) line altogether. It is believed that these figures can fetch up to $2000 at auction.
  • The Helms Deep Gimli Lord of the Rings Toybiz action figure is the rarest Lord of The Rings action figure, as only 500 were ever made. One was listed on for £449.
  • A 1967 G.I. Nurse doll (the first female figure in the G.I. Joe range) sold for $305 on online auction site eBay.
  • A 1992 WWF Hasbro Kamala "crescent moon" on belly internal production sample. Between 12-24 of these figures were produced after the figure was originally released with a "star" on belly design, in error. At least half of these figures were destroyed at the factory after production. Only a handful of these figures are known to still exist today. Worth in excess of $6,000 in mint carded condition.
