|Worth lots in the box.
|But difficult to use in gaming unless opened!
|And added to the collection - now I just need some more Jet Bikes!
Much of the material I use for my gaming could be considered collectors' items, but given the sheer scale of production of these plastic toys, how rare are they?
Hugh Walter, author of the blog "Small Scale World" addresses the subject numerous times in his blog, and raises many interesting points in a manner far better than I could, and with the benefit of considerable knowledge of collecting across several fields. His most recent musing (at the time of writing) is here and can be found part way down the post under the heading "Prices"
Largely I agree with Hugh on this, but would like to add that hobbies should be fun, and not "All about the Rutherfords!"
