Are there any reliable websites that do minifigure trading? I had a look around but couldn’t find much at all.

There is a site for explicitly this purpose, called aptly swapfig.com.

It works by connecting other users either via a wanted or an offered ad, and if the other party accepts the trade you have to exchange postal info and send the minifigure. When the minifigure is received you have to check a box in the trade process page and you can leave a comment. Same if the item is never received. Like Bricklink, building a good reputation is necessary if you want to be trusted in making exchanges.


Or if by trading, you mean buying and selling, then there are many suitable websites:

Here you can sell any minifigures you have and use the revenue to buy others, all the while enjoying the benefits (buyer and seller protection, market share, infrastructure) of an established site. Using these sites might not be straightforward for the first time, so be sure to read up on their own rules and customs, or ask around to learn what you must/should/could (not) do on them.

If, however, you mean "trading" rather as swapping, without involving money, be mindful that there can be huge differences in the value of a minifigure. Depending on age, condition, accessories, rarity and of course desirability, there can be a price range from under a dollar to hundreds of dollars for a single minifigure.

    @Hugo That sounds like an upvote-worthy answer to me, care to make it into one? Or should I just add it to the list in mine with proper attribution to you?

    If he accept you have to exchange postal info and send the fig. When the fig is received you have to check a box in the trade process page and you can leave a comment. Same if the fig is never received. Like Bricklink, building a good reputation is necessary if you want to be trusted in making exchanges. Concerning the FAQ on their website, I noticed you can see the answer if you open the question in another tab.

    @Hugo Thanks, I have added your remark to the answer. Since now you have contributed more to it than I did, I converted it to a community wiki to avoid unfairly profiting from your contributions.

    @Hugo I'm not doing it for the points either, and with a CW nobody gets points anyway :) Meanwhile it's simultaneously encouraging anyone to amend the list in the future - as these services are expected to come and go, like you have experienced.
