    What is the most rare item you have in your collection? Meaning, what item do you have that has a very low production count?

    I have a 1/43 scale resin model of the famous black Lamborghini Countach from the movie Cannonball Run. This is made by Make Up Company which is a Japanese die-cast/resin model car maker. Mine is 1 out of 100 pieces. It's an awesomely detailed model car right down to the wing up front, six CB antennas, and 8 exhaust pipes on the back just like in the movie.

    So, my question to you is..............what is the rarest item in your collection?

    The only thing that comes to mind is an autographed Brett Favre football card that is numbered out of 150.

    I have one of the original Gremlins puppets.

    It's in bad shape but one day I'll have it fixed.

    The rarest thing in my collection? Hmm...

    I guess that honor belongs to a chrome Lego Darth Vader.

    The rarest thing in my collection is me.

    The problem is it's yellowed a bit in the sun, has loose/creaky joints, diminished intellectual efficiency and has incredibly depreciated resale value.

    That e-Hobby Astrotrain, I guess. I don't think it's that rare, but it's got to be the rarest thing in my collection.

    Mine is probably a Limited run of Buffy the Vampire Slayer unpainted Tara figures, autographed by Amber Benson. Only 50 were made and signed. I have 2 of them.

    I think some of you are missing the point of this thread. It's not just about a rare item. The question is, do you have an item that is 1 out of so very few items. Like, less than 1000, 100, 50, or whatever.

    Well it's not really a toy but a friend of mine made me a Print that we both got signed at an convention. So I'd have to go with that.

    The rarest thing in my collection? Along the lines you're describing... I have an Asian Ball Joint Doll (my wife got into these and kind of dragged me in...): Limited Soo-Ri Version 2 that is limited to 1/20 in the world. What makes him so limited is that only the twenty made have the particular face up and accessories (clothes and such) that came with this particular version.

    For me, I've got set #88 (out of 100) of a special edition historical patch set from Camp Oyo (Boy Scout campground).

    Rarest is probably Spawn: Urizen online store exclusive. Can't remember why color the sig is but I have a feeling it's not one of the rarer ones (green, red or "T. McFarlane" or just "Todd" which is hyper rare apparently).

    At the very least 1 of 5000 and at one point going for hundreds of $$% sadly...not the case anymore.
