    why is horde trooper so expensive?

    Hi all,
    I'm new to the motu collecting universe, would like to know why horde trooper is so much more expensive than other figures. Also is there any resource out there that lists current prices for various figures? Thanks.

    A lot of loose vintage Horde Troopers have been bought up over the years to make armies out of them. You'll find numerous fans with a bunch of them in their collections.

    Simply cuz it's an army builder figure, a very cool and unique one, and there's a lot of demand for it.

    It was hard to find back in the day, too. IIRC, it was one of the last 1986 figures I got, and I know I saw it on the pegs very rarely.

    Bingo. I swear this figure was underproduced originally, which I always found quite odd given the "Collect an Army of Horde Trooper Robots" starburst on the package, and most of our parents had the darnedest time finding him. THAT'S why he's so rare and pricey in the secondary market.
    I was going to share!

    That, and the fact that the two torso pieces (chest and back) are more easily lost, so it means quite a bit more when a Horde Trooper is complete.
