Hello all, sorry if this has already been done to death on here but can anyone explain to me why some of the regular (non-variant, non-exclusive) figures are so valuable while others can be found for peanuts? It doesn't seem to be related to the quality of the figures, as although Zoot (one of the most expensive) is a stunning model, I think it's widely accepted that Uncle Deadly is too, and you can buy him for $5 on Amazon.com (unfortunately for me, shipping to the UK makes it not worthwhile). OK, Uncle Deadly is a fairly obscure character, but then so is Lips, and he's another high-value figure! Is it because they made fewer of some of the characters? It seems strange if that's the case, as Waldorf and Statler seem to be quite valuable, and you'd think Palisades would have made plenty of them knowing they'd be almost as popular as Kermit or Piggy, both of which are easy to find for next to nothing. Can anyone explain?
