Do anomaly sets have an increase or decrease of value?
A few years ago at Brickcon in Chicago, there was a raffle for a sealed White Boba Fett... but this was no ordinary White Boba Fett... this one was a mess up. Rather than getting a helmet, head, torso, legs, the bag contained a helmet, head, and two pairs of legs with no torso. Without the torso, it felt to me a decrease in value, however it was an already rare polybag and with this rarity, it made it very rare. Does it make it more valuable or less?
I guess also does faulty printing on mini figures increase value? The new C-3PO has had complaints about offset eyes.
There was also an incident where someone had found the printing of a clone trooper's head was on the back rather than the front and was selling it for a high price. (No idea if he sold it)
My same question goes for sets such as:
BTTF Delorian: Error in printing "Sheild Light From Eyes"
The Antman set before they caught the error with the legs
The faulty Wall-e sets
The Star Wars Ghost with the Protaganist having black rather than brown hair
