    For those who own a toy that they spent over a hundred dollars for deserves some bragging rights!

    Show us what made you poor. They're not there just to grace your shelves, but also to make us drool. (and cry)

    So whenever you splurge , feel free to stop by and share the love. Support the money thread. And who cares if someone has already posted it. Then we can see how many recommendations each figure recieved from everyone.


    ...And please, tell us if they were worth it. :thumbs2: 


    A few to start off with

    G1 Shockwave

    Worth it? Yes. But in 1985 , no.

    [​IMG]
    Worth it? Yes.


    Overlord
    [​IMG]
    Worth it? F yeah!


    Monstructor set
    [​IMG]
    Worth it? No. He's so tiny. Unless your a completionist, stay away from this little ripoff.


    MP Voltron
    [​IMG]
    Worth it? Yes.


    MP Ultra Magnus
    [​IMG]
    Worth it? Yes, but borerline.


    Lego Star Destroyer
    [​IMG]
    Worth it? For $300 you bet it's worth a hundred!

    FX Sabers
    [​IMG]
    Worth it? Yes! Even though you can occasionally find them for 90.
    They're pure joygasmic.

    I don't have time to take pics right now, but I will later.

    1. MiB original Pepsi Prime, only tape has been cut -- Worth it? Aw yes. :) 
    2. 100% complete and mint G1 Scorponok -- Worth it? Yes. :) 
    3. Brave Max - Worth it? Yes, especially since I can't afford a Fort Max at the moment.
    4. Masterpiece Prime -- Worth it? At the time, yes, but it wasn't long afterwards I could get him much cheaper. Kinda got burned.
    5. Reissue Predaking -- Worth it? Yep, looks nice sealed and proud on my display, and feels good knowing I have a mint backup to the vintage original I have from my childhood. :)

    I've only spent this kind of money on the occasional TF, or on lots of TFs. Though this guy happened to set me back a decent amount:

    [​IMG]

    Worth it? Yep. One of my favourite TFs.

    [​IMG]

    Each of these is totally worth it. Some of the most fun toys in my collection.

    [​IMG]

    A near mint Great Goldran giftset, boxed with all inserts and accessories, most of which are still on the original runners. He is the rarest and most expensive of all the Great Brave giftsets. Got him as a part of a lot with two out of the three in the above picture and a whole bundle of others. You'd better believe he is worth it.

    [​IMG]

    He's worth it. Great Exkaiser vintage giftset. Pretty darn good condition, a little wear and tear, but nothing catastrophic. He didn't set me back much more than $100, but can and sometimes does go for loads more.

    Well I can't take any new pics since my gf is sleeping behind me and I don't want to disturb her, so let's see what I can dig up.

    Jafcon Prime- Worth it? Hell yeah.
    [​IMG]

    Trizer- might've been a tiny bit under $100, but pretty close either way. Worth it? Just as a toy, no, but as rare collector's item then hell yes.
    [​IMG]

    Sonic Convoy- worth $100 at least, maybe not quite the near $200 some places are asking.
    [​IMG]

    Some group shots, I'll single out the more costly ones.
    [​IMG]
    Dezarus- worth it? Hell yes. One bad-ass Destron leader.
    Overlord- Hell yes again. In great shape and he's one of the biggest baddies out there. Actually he might even be the biggest, anyone have height numbers to check me?
    Liokaiser- hell fucking yeah! No box and nearly $300 when all was said and done, but man he's freaking sweet.

    [​IMG]
    Victory Saber- got both for $152.50 total, damn worth it. Though Saber's a bit yellowed.
    And believe it or not nothing else in that show (save Trizer) was over $100. Road Ceasar I got in parts, but he'd be well worth it too.

    Not all, just all for now. :)

    He's a head taller than Scorponok, towers over Trypticon, but I think Supreme Starscream is a little above him, thanks to his shoulders. Not sure how he stacks up against Unicron as he's not stood next to him right now. Think Overlord was taller, though.

    Chaos Muffin, that Shockwave is HOT.

    I think the only thing of mine that I paid $100 or more for is 20th Anniversary Prime - but even then that was only over 100 Australian dollars, not US...

    Are you sure on that? My Overlord is stood right next to my Scorponok, and he's a good inch taller. Does the new head on Black Zarak really add that much extra height?

    Quite sure. I have them on the same shelf, so comparing them is easy. Black Zarak's head is much taller than Scorpy.

    Honestly, even though I love GGG he just was'nt worth the price tag. Even with all the accessarys and diecast he is'nt worth much more than $80-$90 tops.

    [​IMG]

    Defintly worth it. Great articulation and had a great time putting him togeather

    You know. This thread got me thinking. I've got a really big collection with a lot of hard to find stuff, but the only thing 2 things that I know that $100 were spent on was my 0 Prime and my Predaking giftset, and both were gifts. I've got Metroplex, Trypticon, Omega, orig. Predaking, and lots, lots more. I guess I'm just lucky on what I've gotten.
