Want To Collect Marvel Avenger Pop Figures? What To Look For

Once you get your hands on a Marvel Avengers pop vinyl figure, you will likely want to get your hands on another. In fact, before you know it, you will be on the path to becoming a collector. Make sure you know what figures to look for. While all of the pop vinyl figures are great, there are some that are considered more valuable than others. Here are just some of the most popular styles you want to keep your eyes open for.

Exclusive Numbering

Typically, all pop figures have numbers on them. However, the format of the number can offer an indication of just how rare it is, particularly when it comes to the presence of a slash (/) mark. If you see a figure with a number formatted like, 001, this typically is just a reference to the series that it is a part of and doesn’t necessarily mean that it is a rarity.

However, when you see a figure labeled with a number formatted like, 1/100, this is something special. A number formatted in the latter style would mean that the figure was the first produced of only 100. This means it’s a rarity and something you probably want to grab.

Convention Models

Another type of pop figure to keep your eyes open for are convention models. Convention model figures are designed exclusively for a particular convention, such as Comic Con. To identify these figures, simply look at the box as it should state that it is a convention exclusive.

If the box is unavailable, the bottom of the figure should also include this information. Not only are they only introduced at these functions, but they are also only produced in very small quantities, making them highly valuable.

Defective Figures

In most cases, you wouldn’t want something that is considered defective. However, when it comes to collecting pop figures, a defect can increase the value of the figure. Examples of a defect include a figure without a painted face or even a color defect, such as a Hulk figure that is painted yellow.

These types of figures are rare, but if you do stumble across one, you definitely want to consider purchasing it. It’s worth mentioning that some knockoff pop figures often look slightly different than the original Marvel figures, prompting some people to think that it is actually defective. Before purchasing, make sure it’s an authentic piece with a defect and not simply a knockoff.

The more you know what to look for, the more valuable your collection. For more information, contact local professionals like JMS Pop Culture.
