To accompany the return of the "Figure of the Month" shows on the 'Chive Cast, here's a look at pricing for recent sales for the Rebel Commando. There's lots of chatter that post-The Last Jedi we are seeing a drop in pricing. I don't think we'll use the Rebel Commando as the "canary in the mine shaft" as his sales don't reflect any real trend.
I wasn't able to find that killer piece that goes for crazy money, though there is a foreign MOC which does get good money without what could be considered insane pricing. It remains the case that the lower end items continue to go for a reasonable price (for the budget conscious collector out there).
A couple of loose baggies are in the mix along with the Endor Forest Ranger mini rig. Pretty consistent themes here: you really are lucky if you can pick up cheap baggies.
Here's the data...
