Django Unchained action figures are skyrocketing!

django unchained action figure by neca

This is what you call a well-timed purchase. Last week, when the controversy started brewing about the Django Unchained action figures, I thought it might be a good idea to get one–controversy is usually a good thing when it comes to collectibles. The figures are sold out everywhere, so, I ended up buying this Django figure from Neca’s eBay store for under $30.

Yesterday, the Weinstein Company decided to pull the plug on Neca’s action figure line after the uproar, and the prices of these figures skyrocketed.

I bought this thing with the hope of making money on it in a few years, but one of these Django figures sold for as high as $1,000 yesterday on eBay! I had thought of getting the whole set, but didn’t feel like spending $150 on action figures I didn’t really want–stupid, stupid, stupid.

    Call Jordan Hemborough…..new misfit toys for him to pursue! Nice score though Brian. I have been in your shoes as well….The ghost of collections past!

      A collection of banned/recalled toys would be kind of fun to acquire. Of course, I’d be content to stop once I got a Kenner Alien figure. ;)

    It’s just crazy how things like these happen with movies and such and now how valuable those items related to them all are. I guess the question is going to be sale now or wait to later.

    I’d cash in as well. I agree that these prices will probably settle down soon. As the saying goes, “strike while the iron is hot!”

    Any plans to reinvest your quick cask?

      No immediate plans but it’s been a while since I put anything up on eBay so my collecting funds are getting pretty low. This should help fill the coffers a bit.
