You can start buying and selling figures in a few select spots across the internet. There are lots of ways to buy and sell figures online, but the following five are the most popular and most reliable of them all.

Without a doubt, eBay is the most popular and prominent place online to sell action figures. There are millions of monthly visitors to the popular marketplace, and a very healthy community of action figure buyers and sellers. It's easy to find deals on figures you want, and listing items of your own to sell is a breeze. It might not be the most affordable or collector-friendly, but it's definitely the biggest for action figure aficionados.

Much like eBay, what Amazon lacks in affordability and collector-friendliness, it makes up for in size. There are tens of thousands of figures for sale all the time, and new items are being added all the time. It's much more difficult for an individual to sell on Amazon, but it's possible, and there's always enough to buy.

Craigslist takes rummage and garage sales and puts them online. Unlike the other organized and easy-to-navigate marketplaces on this list, Craiglist takes a regional and local approach to buying and selling action figures. You'll need to scour lists for bargains and figures you want. It's a little riskier and a lot more work to find something good, but the potential rewards for scoring a huge deal or selling something quickly and easily are worth all the trouble.

DASH is a relatively new marketplace that's similar to eBay in many ways, but designed specifically for action figure collectors instead of general listings. It's a bit smaller, but it's incredibly friendly to collectors with its catalog integration, auction and fixed-style listings, and very focused base of users. It's easy to buy or sell, making this the collector's natural home for transactions, not necessarily the retailer's or casual buyer's.Continue to 5 of 5 below.

Although primarily frequented by those looking to buy and sell craftier items, Etsy does feature a healthy dose of action figures for sale as well. There are both traditional figures, and those which have been implemented into arts and crafts, giving buyers something a little different. It's a great place to sell offbeat or customized figures to a more open audience, and its international scope means there are lots of potential buyers.
