Does anybody know how rare Detritus DW27 is? how many were made and sold and what it may be worth?

Hi Bigash! I have no idea how rare it is - I've got one myself though. I expect our member, The Mad Collector will have an idea. :)

Hmm, well I could say £50 and offer you that but that wouldn't be right. Detritus is really rare, less than 50 are know to exist and it's one of the few Clarecraft figures I don't have :cry: although I do have the matching figure of Ruby.

Frankly they are both pretty awful and Terry went ballistic when he found they had been put on sale without his permission. A realistic price nowadays is about £200 to £250, they used to go higher but the market has fallen in the last few years. Check for damage though. The flowers are often chipped and unless it's perfect with a tent card and box it won't make as much.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Excellent buy, even without the box and card it should still make at least £100 on the open market :D

Tony or Bigash,

Would either of you mind posting a picture of your DW27s as the only picture I have seen is the one in the catalogue and it's pretty small.

thanks

Actually, now I've seen your Ruby, I'm not sure my Detritus is DW27, but I'll dig it out and have a look. :D
