As proof that there are collectors out there with very deep pockets, I did a quick search to see the most expensive action figures that recently sold on eBay. Items that sold with a “Buy It Now” price or the items that were obviously fraudulent were not included. Whether or not the buyers went through with the sale is unknown, but the items that made it to the list had multiple bids and seemed legitimate. All of these sales took place in June and July of 2014. You can click on the titles to go to the actual auction listing on eBay.
