Does anyone else try not to buy figures over $100, it feels irresponsible to spend that much on a figure.
I normally wouldn't, but as a diehard Samurai Pizza Cats fan I have sworn to myself to buy any new merchandise that comes out, and earlier this year Evolution Toys announced a Supreme Catatonic for their Dynamite Action line. And after doing a bit of Googling, figures in that line often seem to go for well over $100 right off the bat.
I second that notion. I've been wanting Blodia for about two months since I've known of it's existence, but that pricetag makes me feel uncomfortable. Same for Charming Drossel and the blank Figmas. Speaking of which, what are they called again?
Only way to justify that is by the sheer rarity of that figure and you're willingness to have that figure in collection. I've been eyeing that ThreeA Metal Gear Rex but even with the disposable income added in that's something to think about.
>tfw I've spent over $200 on individual chogokins
I have no regrets.
Better get used to it poorfag that's going to be the standard MSRP for figmas by 2016.
I do, but when it was the figures I really, REALLY want and promotion/sample pictures REALLY convinced me then I don't mind spending that much.
Rarely happen though. I only remember spending around that much with SOG Max Otoha Karas, SIC Kiwami-Tamashii Den-Liner set, SRC Genesic Gaogaigar, and upcoming SRC Mazinkaiser SKL renewal.
>I have no regrets.
I was ready to call bullshit, then I remembered you can easily sell all of those off for as much as you paid, if not more. Even if you had regrets they'd be irrelevant.
i'm exactly in this situation right now. been wanting to get this figure for a while now and it popped up online. worth 12000 yen so that's over a hundred dollars for a figure. it does feel irresponsible. heck, even hot toys are kind of a stupid investment really. i owned one before and sold it after a few days. it just felt so wrong haha. inb4 dolls
Dude, im thinking about spending >60 on a mezco hellboy so maybe i'm not the one that should be saying this but: WHY?
It looks dollar-bin-ish. Sell it.
WHAT THE F*(K ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? is that even english?!
Most expensive thing I bought was SPEC SOC Eva-02 from Mandarake for 100 dollars. Totally worth it. Eva-01 only set me back 90 recently. I don't buy a lot over that price range so I agree with you for the most part, but I do plan on buying that diecast Gurren Lagann, SOC Gunbuster and the Lagann figure that comes with Simon once I have a fair amount of money. Which one should I go after first?
$100 for a figure is expensive?
$100 is the least I pay for my toys.
Quality makes it worth it.
But then $100 is barely a drop in the bucket for me.
I don't normally compute my monthly toy expenses because I just buy what I want.
That's the way. You gotta pay if you gotta play.
Hell, I just bought that "life-size" Optimus statue because I thought it would look good beside my toy shelf.
>paid $30 for him
No way! I have to see this, i've looked for him on eBay and goddamn
I try to keep it under a hundred but i am planning on buying this one
Another pic of the Sonico figure, i'm pretty stoked for this one and can't wait to buy it
Most I've spent was $79 or so for Manga Realization BAOH. If the figure is very good quality & a nice size, I could shell out over $100 for it, IF I have that money to burn
I keep 80 as a rough limit.
Then again I mostly collect 1/12 and 1/144 figures, a bunch of Bugmen and Gundams.
There are a few things I'd consider going above 100 for. SoC Big O, or the Dendrobium kit, but it's a very small list regardless.
But it'd have to be something nice and substantial, just cause I want some Web Exclusive bugmen does make it worth a benjamin to me.
About to pay $150
Yes it includes kawajiri head.
We will see if I regret.
Depends on the figure.
For 1/6 scale, I'll try to keep it at an average 250-300 depending on if its not in production, otherwise 200 average if it is.
For minimates, never more than 30 bucks (and thats for super rare out of production or completely overpriced shit like Gambit)
I spent $150 on this red behemoth. Bitch is the size of a newborn baby and rule all the other figures on my dresser. Next on my grail list is the toddler-sized Macross.
I'll never understand the Japanese figure market. They first release an expensive figure, nobody buys it, so they raise the price, nobody still buys it, suddenly it disappears, and the price skyrockets into the quad digits.
Spent $120 on this little bitch. Of all the SDCC minifigs they've done, she was the one I absolutely had to have.
Though the Zur-En-Arrh is very tempting.
