What is the most expensive hummel?

What is the most expensive Hummel Figurine on the market?

It probably depends on your definition of "on the market". There were a lot of large promotional pieces made, including a lifesize Merry Wanderer outside the Hummel Museum, which is probably the most valuable, but these are not really "on the market".

Some early samples of various models were produced in such small quantities that they can exchange hands for potentially tens of thousands, but these were not originally offered for general sale either.

The most expensive one I am aware of that was not a promotional or sample piece is Worldwide Wanderers (with Miller book value of $4,500) - see attached link for detail.
