The Most Collectible Toys and Their Value Today

When you're a youngster shopping for toys, the last thing on your mind is prospective inflation. That is why all of us Gen-Xers despise ourselves since we ALL had toys that are now worth tens of thousands of dollars that we can no longer obtain because we actually PLAYED WITH OUR TOYS rather than storing them in crates. However, if we had stored some of them in boxes, many of us would be in much better financial shape now. The truth is that there are a lot of valuable vintage toys out there, especially from the 1980s and 1990s, that are worth a lot of money for a variety of reasons. One possibility is that the toy contains an error or misprint. Two, it could be extremely uncommon (which is the most likely scenario), and three, it could have been discontinued, which normally increases demand for premium toys.

1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, first edition, $6,500.00

Reading does pay off, youngsters! If you have the first edition of Harry Potter's first adventure and haven't read it or dog-eared the pages, you are sitting on a book worth about $7,000.00.

Reading is, after all, FUNDAMENTAL! Both your brain and your money account will benefit from it.

2. Luke Skywalker ORIGINAL 1978 Action Figure ($25,000.00)

To be honest, the entire list might be made up of Star Wars toys.

There have been so many discontinued figures, and the series has grown so legendary, that a good collection of Star Wars figurines in their original packaging could currently fund a down payment on a home. A good example is the original Luke figure.

3. Many Lego sets, like the ORIGINAL Star Wars Millennium Falcon, are valued at over$15,000.00

This one is hotly contested among geeks, with some claiming a worth of $12,000 and others claiming twice that. However, we can all agree that if you own the original Millennium Falcon (that HUGE one) Lego set, that sucker is DEFINITELY worth well over ten thousand dollars.

As we all know, Star Wars toys have a strong tendency to appreciate in value over time.

4. $ 250,000.00 Worth Gundam Fix Platinum Toy Robot

The fine print on this one is as follows. When you put the words "toy" and "platinum" together, you realize "toy" isn't the most accurate descriptor.
