Therefore, let’s take a closer look at these 5 reasons why should invest in Bearbrick figures. (Additionally, the value of Bearbrick figures is not based on anything objective either. It’s a matter of hype, and of general demand).

To Make Profit

We have no problem saying it. Guilty as charged. Investing in Bearbrick figures is a great way to make money, especially if you already have money lying in a dead savings account. So, why not? The market for luxury Bearbrick figures is no different than any other market. First things first – Bearbrick figures are hard to get a hold of at retail. That’s mainly because they are limited in quantity and of course limited retailers. There are only two major drops per year, summer and winter, with a few smaller general and special occasion releases occurring throughout the year. Then there’s the actual rarity. Once something is rare, the price of it can go skyrocket high. So, if you can make a profit out of it, why not.

Unlike stocks, the Bearbrick figure is a long-term investment that will definitely pay off one way or another; if not through actual money, then through the pure pleasure of looking at it (that’s what we like to do). If it is a profitable one all the better. What we are saying is that you can enjoy all the benefits of owning a Bearbrick figure (or collection) and watch it every day while still making a profit on it.
