    Hi! Just like the title what r your spending limits on tf toys? What would be the highest you would spend on a tf action figure? By figures I mean normal figures, not a 10 foot masterpiece fortress maximus lol!

    I've personally spent over $500 on one Transformer before, and would probably spend more if it's the right one.

    Most I've spent on a single TF is ~$250 for a complete, near-mint G1 Scorponok several years ago. If we're counting 'sets' or combiners as a single item, then the ~$560 I'm spending on TFC hercules will be the highest amount.

    In general, I start getting a little uncomfortable spending more than ~$50 on any single item and ~$100 on a single item is close to my upper limit. Anything more than that, I usually only spend if I'm celebrating a very special occasion.

    $40 is the most I've spent on one figure, ha ha. :lol 

    My limit really depends on the figure, though.

    at one time $1100. Only thing I have ever payed 4 diggits for. But then again a boxed Japanese MAX for that price is a steal.

    I broke the $200 barrier before. But it was a looooong time ago before reissues and knocks-offs deflated prices.

    $400 for one figure.

    I've spent well over $1,000 for a bunch together. BBTS is dangerous that way.

    That's a difficult question to answer in one poll choice.

    If you're asking what is the most I've spent on a single TF, that'd be $200 on MP09.

    If you're asking what the most I'd be willing to spend on a single TF, then that'd be $1000+ since I'd like to aquire a G1 Fort Max at some point in the future (and I'm slowly convincing my wife so that time may be closer than I once had hoped).

    100x6 when in individual modes? 1x600 in gestalt mode?

    Nah, I'd say 100x6 since it is 6 individual figures purchased seperately. Although if a box set of 6 was available, then 1x600 could be accurate.

    The most I've spent on a single toy so far is MP-10. I'm not sure how to classify my Ultra Magnus, as I had to buy the base figure, two upgrade sets from FansProject, one upgrade set from iGear, one from Perfect Effect, and lastly from Repo Labels.

    Most I ever Spent on a transformer was $120 on a Botcon 2008 Shattered Glass Starscream, though I'm certain I'll top that once the NEW MP screamer is available or the 3rd party sixshot- whichever comes first :D

    I can't gauge a limit. The most I've personally spent out of my pocket on a Transformer is $45. Most expensive Transformer was $60.

    But ... depends on the figure. I have no set limit on how much I can spend. Comes down to if I'm not a broke-ass bitch and if the toy is kewl.
