The minute things are labeled as "collectibles" - they instantly become worthless. People run around like idiots buying up the same thing as thousands of others and then, well, forget it. Go on eBay and see what those "collectible" Beanie Babies are selling for. The shipping costs more than the things are worth. It's the same thing with Precious Moments figurines for which people paid big bucks.
FT's toy action figure collection is a big dust collector and nothing more.
