As I've been saving up for an MP-10, it dawned upon me that I've amassed a bit over 200 USD and STILL I need a good 60-70 USD more to pay him up. This puts him at an *almost* 300 USD price range, including shipping, for a single TF figure. When I get him, he's officially the most expensive mass retail transformer [not including mark up, vintage rarity, botcon exclusives or any other sub lines] I'd get. And concurrently, my preorder for Prime DLX Wave 03 hits at around 140 USD shipped [I'm in Europe, not the US] for 8 deluxe figures, some of them duplicates. So I've got the choice of either committing to my funds for some arguably inferior figures and save up once again, or cancel my order and just wait out for a single, masterpiece, full-playhouse esque figure. Have you ever gone through such choices in your collection, and what did you decide momentarily and in the long term? Even a 300 USD figure [and by takaratomy interviews, he's a one-off at that price] seems inconsequential to many hits over smaller figures, multiple times per year. Plus, it adds a [relatively, objectively speaking] milestone character in a stand alone figure on your shelves instead of many smaller ones, most of which are going to be repainted/retooled down the road. Any opinions on this? I know many collectors downsized and trimmed their collection around the time MP-05 came out, how's the situation now?
