Welcome to Gaia! ::

To spend on a single toy.
Keep in mind that it's just a figure and does nothing but look pretty in my shelves.


I ask because I'm seriously considering spending 130$ on something.

If it will cost more in the future, buy it. Too much will be 60% of your budget.

There are amazing figures around $400
All depends on what you want and if you've got the funds for it.

My limit is 40 bucks, tops! I'm a poor student, to buy something worth 150 bucks I'll have to win the lottery or sell a kidney.

It really depends. On the topic of scaled figures, I normally am against spending more than 200 usd on a figure, shipping and customs included, however I kind of caved and broke that rule twice already (With Saber Alter and Motored Cruiasser)

Figmas /Nendos however are a different story. I refuse to spend more than 100 USD one, especially since you could just opt to buy a better scaled figure that's worth the money. Only exception is when I like that figure (ie: Figma Nero)

My limit is $150, and that has to be a figure that a) I absolutely love and b) will go up in value.
My limit on toys is $50, but that's just me. I was only tempted to spend more a few times. Only broke once though and it wasn't by much. The figure was $60

I collect Transformers, so most figures are well under the $50 marker, with the exception of the Masterpiece lines, 3rd party made figures and some G1 collectibles.
The most I've spent is $300.
I guess It depends on your budget and if you think you really want to spend so much on it as well.

it depends entirely on the figure, in some cases ive saved up and spent as much as $200 on a single figure but for most figures I would ever pay that.
really i'd say its just about the quality of the figure and how much you want it.

I don't believe in a toy (or any hobby item) costing "too much." An item is worth as much as you're willing to pay.
That's a common saying in the doll hobby & I often live by it!

I've spent close to $2000 for special dolls because I have such a passion for my hobbies.
My main rule of thumb is to never spend an amount that will put me in debt & I always make wise investments.
I only put large amounts of money towards objects that I know I can sell for the same price or make a profit from.
It's important to me that I never feel the pressure of debt, but I can still enjoy my toy hobbies in the process!

I don't think there's such thing as too much as long as you can afford it and it's worth it to you. If you want it and know you wont have any regrets about purchasing it then I don't see why you shouldn't go ahead and buy it.
A lot of pricy collectables can gain value throughout the years so if you know you'll take good care of the item then it can also be a wise investment opportunity. heart
