LEGO figures have a wide range of value. Depending on how many times the figure appears in sets and how much the set costs are also crucial. If a common Batman figure appears in nearly every DC LEGO set it may not be worth all that much. However, a Heath Ledger Joker minifigure is only available in one set (76023) The Tumbler. As such the figure sells anywhere from thirty dollars and up. Some sell closer to fifty.
However the most sought after figures do not appear in any LEGO sets at all. There is only one place to get them. San Diego Comic Con. Every year at San Diego Comic Con LEGO gives away two exclusive minifigures. One for Marvel and one for DC. Past years they had some cool exclusives such as a Hydra Captain America or a Zur En Arrh Batman.
This year they showed off the LEGO Vixen figure, a DC character they chose to help promote their television show DC Legends. The Marvel exclusive was more of a mystery.
Marvel’s exclusive was Deadpool Duck. To get the LEGO figure, you would have to get in the convention center as early as possible. Then line up hours before they give away the figure.
