The list author says: "The world of LEGO figures is unending. Children and adults have taken to collecting these mini figures and rejecting the rest of the LEGO set! Often it is less expensive to just buy the mini figure (2-3 inches tall), rather than the entire LEGO set it comes in. Why?, because we have seen in numerous sales, children and collectors ONLY WANT THE MINI FIGURES! The price of them can be from ONE penny up to ONE hundred dollars for ONE figure, it all depends on how RARE the figure is, the set it came from, and how many the market has. LEGO RETIRES their sets VERY quickly which keeps the VALUE of the sets and figures VERY GOOD. So just pick your theme (star wars, civil war, western, space, Indiana jones, Ninja, City, Knights and castle, ETC..) and have a blast with these super little guys and gals. NOT A GOOD CHOICE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 5 YEARS OLD WHO WOULD SWALLOW THEM. CHOKE HAZARD."
