Are Bearbricks a Good Investment?
This is question asked quite often when it comes to Bearbricks, the thing is many designer toy collectors don't think of Bearbricks as an investment. They buy a Bearbrick 1000 for the simple reason of having it part of their art toy collection and as a statement art piece in their home.
But over the years with the price increase these designer toys have had, many have begun looking at Bearbricks as an investment to make a future return on, rather than the simply collecting them. The Bearbrick universe is huge, so it's not easy to collect all the pieces out there. It's important to find what you love and when you start collecting.
You might be interested in the Marvel or Star Wars or perhaps you like Bearbrick designs that are inspired by famous artist from Jean-Michel Basquiat or Andy Warhol. The point is, make sure you're buying something you LIKE even if you're purchasing it as an investment, this is important.
Bearbrick's core is an art form that celebrates pop culture. It is intended to inspire and bring joy to collectors. Toy collecting is less fun when you try to predict the rise in aftermarket prices.
But if you're strictly into it for the money, you need to stay on top of art designer market trends. You need to do your researching on what Bearbrick you're buying, why, determine the scarcity and be aware of price valuations.
