To follow up on the theme my best friend Alexis posted *here* Im going to do a top 5 list but its not the "Top 5 Vintage MOTU figures (IMO) that I do not currently own" my list is The top 5.5 I need in my life .I decided to go this route because the MOTU figures Im still missing Im just missing because I haven't bought them yet not because I can't find / afford them but the things on this list I can either not find or afford.
5: Remco Warrior Beasts Wolf Warrior. He turns up very rarely and when he does turn up you can guarantee that 300 other people want to win him just as bad as you do.
4: Sungold Galaxy Warriors Dragoon .another figure that isn't always around , this guy can quickly rack up the bids to 100$ or more loose.
3: Remco Conan Thoth Amon : This is again a case of supply and demand .Loose examples of him come and go in the blink of an eye and carded examples run between 300$ to 500$.
2: Underworld Warriors : They are rare and expensive and high on most KO collectors want lists.
1:Speclatron Dethlor: The holy grail of 5.5 Ko collectors. This guy will cost you over 1000$ loose ,if you want just an arm that will cost you over 100$ .I had this guy for a long long time and then he broke in half and from there Im clueless where he went. When I went to replace him a few decades later I was shocked to see that the figure I picked up at Toys R Us with leftover pocket change (from playing in the arcade next door) was now ridiculously expensive .
and now as a bonus ,this is a picture of how my first shelf full of non MOTU 5.5 figures looks on the morning of 7/11/2018.
*please forgive the poor lamp placement*
I'm about to expand onto another shelf so I will keep you guys updated!
