    I would say (in no order) Shadow Weaver, Teela and SacreGlow. I don't know who's actually the rarest, but those three are probably the most sought after.
    MOTUC: What we need NOW:
    KARG, Eldor, Horde Troopers, NA Skeletor, Sagitar

    I think it would be fisto or teela from the monthly releases but the sub exclusives and sdcc exclusives would probably be made in smaller runs
    Making sure the vintage line is fully reproduced in the classics line

    Teela is now the only figure I haven't been able to track down. I'd be interested in knowing how rare people think Tri-Klops and Whiplash are too.

    Teela is the most rare and expensive for the regular figures. Fisto comes right behind her as rare due to the shoddy shipping of DR to subscribers. Shadow Weaver is the most expensive, but not really rare as she can be found readily on eBay with a $100+ price tag. Teela will only become even harder to come across because of TG's announcement that she is "gone for good" and that they will likely not do anymore reissues. Doing a quick check on eBay, it looks like Whiplash and Tri-klops' supply is running thin. Then again, how many peope on the boards are willing to give theirs up? I'd pretty much conclude that anything early 2011 and earlier would be considered "rare" based on secondary market supply.

    I'd say Teela, I started as a loose collector, then started a 2nd collection MOC and was working on the original 8. Of the 8, Teela, was the rarest and most expensive. I saw 2 on ebay last week MOC and I broke down and picked one up for 95$ with shipping. The other one was going for 117$ I think and that was without shipping. I always thought we'd get a 2nd run of Teela which is why i waited so long to buy her.


    Oh I even saw a MOC Teela AFA Graded for 299$ Im not sure if thats still on ebay.

    Flocked ears Moss Man, TRU Bizzaro v Faker, Teela, Shadow Weaver and perhaps Wun-Dar too would fit into the above categories IMO.

    I know this may sound like a cop-out answer, but the rarest and most expensive figures are those that have been revealed but not released.

    -Ram-Man, Jitsu, The Fighting Foe Men, Fang Man, Clamp Champ, Octavia, Karatti, and New Adventures He-Man.

    I'll go with the Faker/Bizarro 2-pack.

    It's one of the few items I still need.

    Bronze King Grayskull would be the the most rare, not limited to under 25 wouldn't it? Pretty sure there's less of him then Teela, Fisto and any SDCC figure

    True, now that you mention it, I just remembered that clear king grayskull has to be the rarest. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think there are only a couple official

    Well in that case, Chrome She-Ra would be the rarest.

    In no order....
    Spirit SDCC Grayskull, I believe only 2 made.

    Bronze SDCC Grayskull

    Fisto, sub holders were short changed of him.

    Teela, had no second or larger first run.

    TRU Battle Armor Faker, the TRU line was cut short.

    Red Eyed He-Man, ?....I don't see many of that particular run noted in pics or collections....


    Not really true rarities....but close.

    Castle Grayskullman, seemed to be hugely popular, may not be all that rare, but he sold out every time offered, and many still seemingly did not get him.

    Shadow Weaver, being a sub exclusive, especially made only in sub quantities, therefore being hard to aquire. But not really all that rare, yet....but being so expensive, I would consider her part of this list.

    Tri-Klops is not really a rarity, he has appeared more than Teela on Matty.

    The spirit version I believe only had 2 real versions....and they I believe went to Mattel employees or something....that part I don't remember the details as to who they went to....but I do remember reading there were only 2 made.

    There are a ton of KO versions, that look almost identical....but they are not official.

    And I have seen that Silver She-Ra....now that she was brought up.
    Recent....Eldor
    Coming....Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow
    Wanted....
    Considering....

    "Rarest" figures are Silver Chrome She-Ra (only 2) and Spirit of Grayskull.... Both of these are near impossible for the average collector to obtain as they were promo-type figures.

    i have the red-eyed He-man moc. Mine was delivered w/ beast-man dec 12th 2008 and neither one even had the hang tabs put on the back of the card. they didn't start putting those on until later.
    if people are that picky about considering those a package variation, they are pretty rare.

    I think Teela and Shadow Weaver, for sure. They're both going for absurd prices. Weaver isn't really "rare" per se, but I think she soon will be. I think Teela definitely is, though. There’s clearly something about Teela. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the 200x figure of her pretty rare, too?
