labeled as rare when it is actually readily available and can be found
just about everywhere. This term, when added to common figures, somehow
loses it real power to describe the potential value of any collector’s
The metallic Cynder, however, is one figure that truly deserves this
accolade. Released exclusively for the 2012 Toy Fair in New York City,
it was only available to those in attendance that week and was never
made available in stores.
While it is certainly true that no one knows for sure how many of these
figures were released, best guesstimates place the entire run at around
5,000 pieces. What’s more, once these figures make it into someone’s
collections, they typically remain there which leaves even fewer
available to meet the increasing demand.
