Besides the tri-fold borg what in the trek toy community is considered the rarest playmates action figure? I know I have some of the more harder to find one buts I want to absolute rarest for playmates after the tri-fold borg...if its the doctor crusher in generations uniform or lt. commander data redemption version then I have those two as well....

The rarest 4.5" Playmates figure that you could actually find in stores, though not in the US, was Dathon with Space Cap. There was well under 1000 produced. I just saw one sell on Ebay for $700. The trifold Borg was a promotional piece and not sold at retail.

And what about the platinum series "Vulcan Leader"?
I just saw one on Ebay $2499 buy it know, Is this crazy?????
Got one myself I bought it a few years ago for € 300,- if I remember.

I heard from a friend that he saw them years ago on a Star Trek Con in Germany for 50Dm, that is €25,- (~$32)

One is owned by Digger the guy that started Art Asylum and the other, though a chain of giving it away, ended up in the hands of Anthony Montgomery.
