Steph Flemming writes: "Silver figures are the most rare of all Skylanders toys. They are unlike the Legendary figures in that they have the same stats as their non-silver counterparts. They also look the same as standard figures when used in the game. The novelty, especially for collectors, is in their different physical appearance and packaging. Silver Skylanders are more sought after because of their rarity -- only being sent out randomly to retailers in limited numbers and found on shelves alongside standard Skylander figures. Because of this Silver Skylanders are the most expensive to buy second hand and have already generated five or six times their retail price."
