Rarest LEGO Sets

Thu Feb 22 2024

We all played with LEGO as a kid. However, what were once deemed as “toys” have transcended mere playthings to become some of the most prized collectables to enthusiasts. Certain sets sit above others though, and in this guide, we shed light on some of the rarest LEGO sets around today.


Rarest Funko Pops

Mon Feb 19 2024

In the world of Funko Pop collectibles, certain figures stand out not just for their popularity, but for their rarity and exclusivity. These gems, coveted by collectors, often fetch staggering prices on the resale market, usually demanding tens of thousands rather than hundreds on the resale market. The whole topic is fascinating, which is why we've put together a list of the rarest Funko Pop figures to guide you through some of the most elusive sets.

Now, it's worth getting it out the way that there's no real way of determining which sets are rarer than others. Many figures are like gold dust, and we'd argue the ones at the very top are just as rare as each other. That's because they're all pretty much unattainable for us regular collectors, with only those with the right contacts and huge disposable income able to get their hands on them

Want to receive quicker stock notifications?

Wed Oct 18 2017

We have today launched a new option whereby you can receive a Push Notification Stock Alert immediately when our servers detect potential stock.

Previously a member of the Stock Informer team would quickly evaluate any stock and send push notifications if the retailer has a definate number of units for sale. This was introduced to prevent users being bombarded with alerts that sometimes were false alarms or the retailer only had an odd unit in stock which got snapped up immediately. However, you now have the option of receiving immediate alerts sent by our servers the second potential stock is detected.


Buying tips for the SNES Classic Mini

Thu Aug 31 2017

Demand for Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) Classic Mini is massive. In over 11 years of tracking hard to find items we have never seen demand so high for pre-orders. This includes the USA where pre-orders went live only last week and sold out in minutes.

Nintendo have promised to produce 'considerably' more units than the NES Mini console last year, however based on the current demand we predict there WILL BE major stock shortages. Nintendo have also stated that their priority is production of the Switch console and the SNES Mini is also a limited time production with no more units being produced after 2017. Nintendo have probably decided to manufacture a set amount with some reports suggesting double that of the NES Mini in 2016, however if this is true, this will still not be enough to satisfy demand.
