Loose figure price increases? ?

Post by welshwookie »

Saw earlier on Facebook a loose Ev9d9 up for £300. After a bit of banter and price bashing the amount was settled on £260 posted.
While I don't collect loose figures , I have no idea how much he was worth before Covid, I found it quite an eye opener, as a few years ago I bought a carded example for probably £90 more.
While I appreciate everything has risen in price, and I have actually stopped myself over bidding in the last few auctions, it makes me wonder if I should or could part with some doubles that I have :roll:

Yep I would have said around £90, Lumat & Warok have been going for over £200 recently as well!

Here is some Star Wars Tracker data from the last 2 years. Prices were trading in a nice channel of £80 to £200 at the top end for a good while.

Then around May 2020 it all kicks off.

Cheers, Jared.

I really hope price go down again, but then again I have said that the last 10 years and so far when prices have been going up then I have not seen them come down again. But then again I do not look at the prices every day.
