Fans of Cactus Plant snapped up the new sets and sparked an unprecedented demand for old figures.
In early October, McDonald's celebrated with a new exclusive Happy Meal in partnership with Cactus Plant Flea Market - the figurine sets sold out within days of going on sale.
Fans of Cactus Plant Flea Market have also created an unprecedented demand for retro kits from the same series. News outlets reported that the toys were listed on eBay and Grailed for up to $30,000. And a rare set with a Cactus Buddy figurine was offered for a record $36,000.
Users of the eBay platform said that the demand for old Happy Meal x Cactus Plant sets was indeed a record. While most listings sell for between $20 and $40, there are some unique offerings that are in high demand, such as 150 sealed Cactus Plant toys at once for $2,400. One can only guess who and why kept these sets without opening all these years?
