I'm still waiting for Harriet, Anna, and Christophe to put up a couple of pictures of their favorite rarities. That will be a sight to behold. (Not to pressure any of you, but … c'mon!)

I also think it's worth noting that a "rarity" doesn't have to be something that is universally acknowledged to be a rarity. For example, there are figures I consider to be a rarity not just because they are desired by everyone and expensive/hard to find. I would think a rarity could also just be a figure that someone looked for for a long time, or something that is just particularly precious. (I liked Paige's posts for this reason, since she posted lots of different kinds of rarities.)

For example, I desperately wanted the Kaiyodo Large-Billed Crow for ages. It's easy enough to find on eBay, but was always so expensive. So when I finally found it for a reasonable price, I was over the moon. Similarly for one of the Kaiyodo Tyrannosaurus models. Or the Kaiyodo Apatosaurus I didn't even know it existed because I just never saw it available on eBay -- when I finally did, I was smitten; it's such a lovely model of a sauropod. Or, the Bullyland Topi. I never thought I'd ever have an opportunity to get one; I assumed it was so far out of reach, I didn't even go hunting. And then Susanne came to the rescue and every time I look at it, I'm reminded of her generous spirit.

I hope everyone will interpret 'rarity' in whatever way they feel comfortable and add to this thread. (Again, no pressure, though.)

No need to apologize. I had planned on "spamming" the thread with photos too. Laughing

If we coordinate this right...  Wink I had the same idea. I'd love to see more rarities personally...  Smile

Here are some of my scarcer models. Few constitute true rarities, though – certainly the Neo by Deseo, the few artist resins shown, the Papo brown velociraptor perhaps, Sideshow Styraco, and possibly the Safari "female" oviraptor – but the rest are really just stuff like expo exclusives, secret figurines, personal "rarities" or plain old thin on the ground, regionally or temporally. Still, they're all models one doesn't get to see every day, so I've opted to interpret "rarity" with mild laxity here.

Horses. In the background an unknown brand Made in China draught - "rare" as I've only ever seen two like it anywhere and would dearly like to have several; an unpainted artist resin Tennessee Walking Horse 'Independence' sculpted by Sarah Rose and slightly customized by me; left foreground a half-painted artist resin Welsh Cob 'Dafydd' sculpted by Sarah Minkiewicz-Breunig and slightly customized & half-painted by me; and on the right an artist resin hunter horse 'Laf'n Bear Rayne' sculpted by Lynn Fraley, being customized and painted by me.
The artist resins are all of low and limited editions, of course, and therefore automatically "rare" in comparison to mass-produced figurines, but even among their own kind, the above few are, I guess, mildly uncommon. The TWH in particular is rather a sought-after piece, making it perhaps my "rarest" resin.

Dogs, from left to right: Kaiyodo ChocoQ Pets series 4 (2003) Boxer 019A (foreground), Toy Major Akita (background), TOPPS Precious Puppies 07 Bull terrier 'Spike' (foreground), Bullyland shar pei dark red variant (background), Furuta Choco Egg 10 Pug (foreground), the Yorkshire terrier from the same set (foreground), an original sculpture Neapolitan mastiff sculpted, painted and collared by our Deseo (this is my only true rarity - it's one of a kind!), and lastly a 1997 TOPPS Precious Puppies Whippet 10 'Speedo'. The TOPPS dogs are "rare" in the most subjective sense of the term; after owning both as a kid and giving them away, I spent a good 10 years idly searching for them before finding both again, which is the only thing that makes them "rare" to me.

Now i will start with my figurines.

I really agree with Susanne for the question what is rare. But i think very high priced models and very hard to find figurines are also rare.

So here is the SSS Pukeko. Now some of us have it but most of us got it in one deal  Very Happy  Before this deal and a member from New Zealand i search for this Pukeko 3 years and never found it. So i think it is hard to find

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Now i will share a few unknown brand chinese figurines. The long-beaked echidna is the only figurine that i know from this specie and also the brustail possum from this serie is not a very often produced specie. The "Grey" lemur too. But what you will search if you will find that. I think it is the same likewith the small Nayab figurines. We know that but if you will search for this it is difficult.
