    this is personally - i.e. not as a gift.
    The most for me is £50 and it was Energon Unicron

    I say single transformer but if it's a box set then you can still post it :D

    About $140 for MP Wal-Mart G1 Starscream due to a scammer or else it would've been only $70-80 but eh, oh well.

    Probably the $750 I spent on a MISB Hasbro Europe Optimus Prime in late 2006 that eventually graded as AFA 80. Don't have it anymore, though.

    But I've spent more than that on toys I bought that I only intended to resell.

    $300 on Fort Max in 2002. Wasn't the best deal since it's missing a lot of pieces but at the time I couldn't find one with both Headmasters for under $400 so I jumped at it.

    Edit: Ah hell, forgot about the 2007 Box Set which was more than that...but I'd rather not think about how much I dropped on it....

    About 5 years ago, $150 for Roadcaesar; loose.
    That was the japanese brain-master combiner.
    Bought all 3 as one unit.

    Think I paid 300 or 350 for my Brave Max... Oh and he's nice! :D 

    Paid 250 for a Pre-GoBots Devil Satan 6 MIB combiner set.

    Figured I'd get them out there before the big dogs start chiming in, lol. I can still remember when I first started collecting and I thought the 50 or bucks that they wanted for 20th Ann Prime was a lot. Oh how the times have changed.

    The 300 and some for the Botcon 2005 box set, if that counts. Also, 200 for the first reissues of Convoy and Ultra Magnus. I bought them together from a seller in Hong Kong. I don't remember if Hot Rodimus came with those as well or if I bought him separately. It was too long ago. After that, it's 135-ish (can't remember) for a nice and white MIB G1 Jetfire. And after that, 90 bucks for a Brave Maximus (helluva deal nowadays. I got him several years ago).

    Probably $150ish for MP-04 Prime when it first came out. I don't buy expensive vintage stuff.

    As shocking as it sounds to even me for as long as I have been collecting is $200.00 on Animated Magnus. Ohh Wait a second I spent like $250.00 on my TFC #0 Prime.
