I'm not as seasoned as most of you, but it seems to me with LCS promotions, black friday, and collectors trying to unload statues for XMas money that the holiday season is prime purchasing time.

Are there any other times of the year that are like this?

before comic con

I have a feeling Sideshow is sitting on their big items for comic con. January - March are going to be brutal.

I would have to say it is on Ebay: I bought over 20 statues on the month of Dec. at really good prices. Most of my collection grew in the months of Nov-Jan 2011

Based on historical sales we've recorded on the Sideshow Collectibles Sales Reports, prices in general peak in November as buyers presumably go after Christmas presents. Prices dip in December as most buyers have wrapped up their shopping while sellers try to unload more inventory for year-end. Prices are flat for a month or two before prices start going back up again.

Now, this is a general overview of sales trends from last Christmas season and subsequent months. You can view individual sales reports on our web-site at http://www.myauctionreports.com.
