    Out of all the toys in the various toy lines you may regularly collect, which has been the most expensive per toy/action figure? Not including Transformers.

    For me, it has been the Masters of the Universe Classics toyline. At $20.00 plus shipping for each 6 inch figure every month ( a little over $28.00 with shipping), this is the most I have ever paid consistantly from any toy line. Well worth it so far too.

    For me, it has to be the Gundam Master Grade kits, followed by SOCs. And yeah, MOTU is pretty expensive for me too but I love that line! :D

    Gundam Master grade kits, I used to buy SO many of them... I don't like to think about how much I spent on them.

    Definitely the MacFarlane and Neca lines I have. Its only small collection right now (15 or so, maybe 20), but each figure costs me $35-40 (Australian Dollars). At the current rate thats $28-33 US dollars.

    Ehhh.

    I think Evangelion, but only because the top two figures there are RAH Asuka and Rei, and they cost quite a bit.

    i normally collect random female action figures from various boy toy lines. like from DC, Marvel, Anime, various movies. *like Star Wars for example*

    i don't have room for every figure, but female figures ever since i was a child, always interested me the most, more then the guys because they stood out, on the pegs in the shelves as being something different. unlike the Justice League U male figures which all seem to have the same BODY :lol !

    also... cuz i am male... :lol
