Hey all,

as a pretty new collector who finally has enough money to start chipping into my dream purchases, I was wondering if there is a general rule regarding the origins of figures such as Lili Ledy/Palitoy that they're more valuable than say Kenner but less valuable than Glasslite. Is there some or pecking order on value like:

1. Glasslite
2. Palitoy
3. Kenner

for demand/value or does it vary for each figure and not just flat out where they're from?

Thanks so much for any info!

Are we talking loose or carded? Carded there are palitoy cards, loose there are no such variant. Palitoy did not make figures, it carded figures from other factories.

I don't follow the market much, but regular Kenner is without a doubt going to be the cheapest.

From the past observations I would imagine it would be (as a general rule but of course character and cardback combo plays a big part):

Poch
Harbert
Clipper
Ledy
GlassLite
Pbp
Toptoys
Toltoys
Palitoy
Trilogo
Kenner

This list may be incomplete as I am recalling cardbacks off the top of my head.  

This may be a bit out of order.  For instance some poch figures only one figure exists on that cardback, but the glasslite vlix sells for more than I have seen any poch figure command and there are around 25 of them that are known.  Not even sure how many top toys carded are out there, but the commons are out in large numbers so they sell for way less, so Vader and stormtrooper sell for less than some Kenner, but a Luke Jedi would go way higher.  Again cardback combo and which character and even figure variant all play a large part in all of it.
