    It depends on how rare they are. The bearbricks you can buy indiviually for like $6-$8 but if you get one of the super rare ones you can sell it on eBay for like $100-$200.

    Bearbricks are blind assortment. When you purchase blind assortment figures they come packaged in identical boxes. The boxes are the same in every way and you can not see what is inside! On the side of the boxes will be a list of different possible figures. One of these figures awaits inside the box.

    [​IMG]

    The chances of you getting particular figures are listed as percentage rates. The percentages are based on a box of 24 figures. As you can see, you have a better chance of getting the BASIC figure as opposed to the ARTIST figure.

    You sometimes have a chance of getting one of more than 12 different figures.

    [​IMG]

    When you open the boxes the figure will be wrapped in foil. At this point you STILL cannot tell which figure you got!

    Foil is used to wrap the figure so people dont open the box and peek inside! It is also used so people don't scan the boxes under X-ray machines. (Believe it or not, it DOES happen!)

    If by chance you get a figure that is not listed on the side of the box, Congratulations! You have found a rare 'chase' figure! Some of these figures are so rare and limited that people pay BIG $$ for them (We're talking hundreds here!).

    Why would anyone spend money on dumb shit like a toy with limited design value (but really at all)? I guess thats why you're selling it - trends suck when they end

    People spend money on dumb shit because they can. I find bearbricks, kubricks, qees etc aestheticlly pleasing - especially when there is a good artist designing them. I just couldn't keep up and wanted to spend my money on other things - like a new mac and shoes. If anything the trend is getting more popular - esp. in our little graffiti sub culture with all the dalek, kaws, ewok, haze, jest, etc.

    I find strippers aestheticlly pleasing, but I probably spend $100 a year on them at the most...about a much as I spend on toilet paper and home cleaning products...it just seems like the most retarded thing ever unless you are afforded a lifestyle via a trustfund that lets you buy dumb shit for no reason, or you are inclined to blend in with the other people in the room wearing square glasses and rocking coy fish tats...
