    Beanie Babied still sell and there are still some being remade (although this doesn’t necessarily harm the value of the originals and other early remakes). The line’s have even expanded a bit. What really determines their value is condition and the time they were made/released as a remake could actually be worth more than a original (like if it were released during some major event as a promotion or something).

    I hate saying it, but there had been and there still are childhood collectibles that would actually knock a number of these top 20 (if not all of them) off the list. 1st example; FF7 for the PS1

      Sry thing automatically submitted the message before I was finished. Anyway back to what I was saying;
      1st example: FF7 for the PS1. I remember way back there was a huge craze over this game and the FF series in general because of the FF7 film that was due to release. Many people sold even the FF7 game in parts on eBay with each disk, case, and booklet going as high as $700 EACH! Made me angry; especially considering that amongst these were copies of the Black Lable with the misspelled Masterpiece word on the back of the cover art. There is also a Japanese exclusive bundle (I think it was Japanese exclusive; I forgot..) which included not just the game (and I think a strategy guide), but a rare VHS tape, a figure or two, and other extras. If you were able to find the complete bundle and in good shape; that could be worth quite a bit. I don’t know about right now, but I have seen Gobots Puzzler sell for a few thousand before in near complete (as in just the six figures that form Puzzler and no box or instructions) and near mint condition. There are also various NES games that were released by unlicensed developers prior to Nintendo enforcing a licensing agreement. These NES games were often homebrewed games that you might have even seen a neighbor, with the tools to make games, haul off to a nearby store to sell. There aren’t many of these left and they can run you a fortune if you were lucky enough to get your hands on even just one of these! Of course; you might have to check several yard sells, flea market type places, or even an old junk yard just to find one without spending a fortune yourself. There’s also the old Doll’s that somebody like your mother or grandmother or great grandmother might have collected and played with. These dolls use to run very high, still sorta do, but they are so overlooked nowadays that it’s become difficult to find collectors and even harder to find a good seller (if not selling it yourself) who won’t scam or cheat you out of their value. You might even see a major b***h at an auction telling inexperienced buyers what is valuable and what isn’t valuable just so they can get the best deal possible on the most valuable of items (be careful confronting these people because some auctioneers are also so trashy that they’ll side with these lowlife thieving scoundrels even when you try speaking to them or a law enforcer present at the auction). There was this one time that I came across an elderly woman who was demeaning my own grandmother’s dolls she had taken to the auction to sell and the b***h just would not keep her hands to herself and was telling everyone who came by how worthless they were and the auctioneer threatened to throw US out if we didn’t leave her alone! And of course you can’t really reach out for help from places like the Better Business Bureau or something more localized for help as they aren’t always and at times, NEVER, reliable. There are even times that reaching out for help just makes things worse as proven time and time again.

      Sorry for the long post plus rant..

    Man i do miss toys r us times square nyc it was a great job and i had access to all the collectibles before the store even opened. We would always stash some of the hard to get stuff to keep them away from the ebay hounds and whip them out when a kid asked for it. Had a nice collection of my own plus the mix ups where i got lucky. I had a whole case of silver r2d2's c3po's and Darth Vader's all a penny each. Too bad she died due to amazon.

    Um, Game Boys are not that expensive, you can usually find them for around $50. In the box maybe a little more, but definitely not $500. They made so many that there is definitely no shortage of them.

  • Desert Guy

    I am not sure if this video merits real life, i have several of these items growing up. However, not factory sealed condition ranges from good to fair. My question is, how many collectors were buying these toys and sitting on them for 20 years in a time fault. That is why the value is so high on most of these now to meet those conditions, because 99.999% kids who got their hands on them would not be keeping them in the box unless by accident like it was hidden for Christmas and forgotten.

    People here who are saying this is "All lies" or misinformation no it's not. He's not saying all of them are selling for that much or have sold for that much. He's given examples of the ones that have, which by the way, is true. Furthermore, he's talking about very specific collectors items which are definitely limited in numbers and he's talking about sealed in the box. You also need to realize that if you are able to find a buyer to pay that much they will pay. Not everyone will pay, and there's not always demand for these specific items. I know a guy who runs a store that specializes in nostalgic toys, the originals, and his business does INSANELY well and he does routinely sell SOME of these action figures for very high prices. It's not misinformation it's about finding a buyer and having the right person willing to pay. Damn.

    I find it hard to believe those toy values without knowing who's paying the big bucks. I'm sure you could say that's what they're going for on Ebay but what percentage of them are being sold for those prices on Ebay? I'd bet not too many. However, I grew up with 1950's & 60's toys and that's where my main interest lies. But that wouldn't stop me from looking for 1980's & 90's toys at garage sales and picking them up , especially if they're in the original boxes, to see what someone would pay me for them. i don't deal with Ebay and Paypal, though.

    Wish I still had my original gameboy. I left it in my backpack outside on a really cold night and the screen cracked. It looked like somebody smeared ink all over it. My brother in law bragger to me one time that he bought an original gameboy for 5 bucks. when he showed it to me it was blue and not the fat grey one

    Only a few years ago the original GameBoy could be picked up really cheap on eBay... Then some idiots on YT started saying how rare and expensive they were and pushed the price up. Pretty soon other old consoles followed suit... Luckily I'm not stupid and could see this coming a long while ago when I stocked up on old consoles, mainly as a back up to my own originals, but knowing that within a few years the price would increase by almost 700%...
