    1. @thelastgherkin Was it ponies?

      1. @mrdragon Transformers. Specifically a Universe (2003) (RID) Optimus Prime (Sam's Club exclusive yellow).

        1. @thelastgherkin Get out, no justification to you.

          Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:29:33 UTC from web
          1. @mrdragon If someone is in the position to spend £70 on one pony toy then they have very poor price comparison skills.

            Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:31:59 UTC from web
            1. @thelastgherkin I think when I was About 11-12 I spent about 30 quid on a Lara croft doll... It had guns

            2. @thelastgherkin Maybe not the molded/brushable figures, but if you count plushies then maybe one or two. Probably a little less though.

              Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:34:37 UTC from web
              1. @fallinwinter You realise I'm talking like $110, right?

                Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:36:17 UTC from web
                1. @thelastgherkin I'll be honest, if we're not counting in context of "regular plushies in store cost 25-30 dollars" The fanmade craftmanship of this deserves at least $50-$75.

                  Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:37:52 UTC from web
                  1. @fallinwinter We're talking actual products available in shops, made by Hasbro.

                    Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:40:45 UTC from web
                    1. @thelastgherkin I don't think I've ever spent more than $30-$40 on any toys though it's been a while. Only Yu-Gi-Oh/Games did I spend $50+

                      Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:42:22 UTC from web
                      1. @fallinwinter I spent £80 on some add-on Transformers armour a few years back.

                        Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:45:27 UTC from web
                        1. @thelastgherkin I enjoyed transforming/armor wearing toys. I remember Megaman X toys where you could swap out their armor. There was one for Megaman.exe too.

                          Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:47:12 UTC from web
                          1. @fallinwinter This armour was a fanmade add-on for Ultra Magnus. Only problem was that when I bought it, I didn't have the Ultra Magnus. I splashed out on him some time later.

                            Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:50:01 UTC from web
                            1. @thelastgherkin Eh, I think I probably spent the most money on the digivices and stuff like that. I think I had like 3 versions of the 2nd seasons ones.

                              Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:51:43 UTC from web
                              1. @fallinwinter Oh yeah, I've spent tons of money on toys. It's just that I'm not used to spending so much on just one.

                                Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:56:30 UTC from web
                                1. @thelastgherkin Dunno, personally I'd buy it if I wanted it that much. Granted there have been instances where I have regretted my purchases. So take what I say with a grain of salt.

                                  Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:57:38 UTC from web

                        2. @thelastgherkin I totally would, I wish I had some expendable income to actually get some of the other stuff I wanted. T_T If you have the extra cash I would totally go for it dear. You don't see to many of them floating around. Is he CIB?

                                          Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:57:44 UTC from web
                          2. @jinny He's complete, but he's not boxed. I'd never be able to afford it if he was still mint.

                            Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:51:14 UTC from web
                            1. @thelastgherkin Yes that's still reasonable. I'd still say go for it.

                              Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:51:58 UTC from web
                              1. @jinny That's the answer I want to hear~!

                                Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:55:57 UTC from web
                                1. @thelastgherkin Yes hehe, I always encourage ponies on saavy purchases. Just think in 10 years you'll get like double your money.

                                  Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:57:24 UTC from web
                            2. @thelastgherkin # for the Fansproject City Commander Armour. :3

                              Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:52:43 UTC from web
                              1. @jinny Thanks! I also have Protector. :3

                                Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:57:22 UTC from web
                                1. @thelastgherkin Oh squiggles I was so close to buying that, but some ponies were like it's just so-so.

                                  Friday, 09-Dec-11 13:58:28 UTC from web
                                  1. @jinny Protector's not as good as City Commander, but it's DEFINITELY better than Masterpiece Rodimus. Masterpiece Rodimus is terrible.

                                    Friday, 09-Dec-11 14:01:10 UTC from web
                                    1. @thelastgherkin Yes Masterpiece Rodimus is like sweet Luna, no good. I was like "" when I nearly almost walked to my car to goto TRU to pick him up. xD

                                      Friday, 09-Dec-11 14:02:20 UTC from web
                                      1. @jinny I impulse bought him when I saw him in TRU because I wasn't convinced I'd ever see him again. (I'd only seen Grimlock once at the time.) I had to return him because he was just so bad.

                                        Friday, 09-Dec-11 14:06:34 UTC from web
                                        1. @thelastgherkin Yes I was lucky as my TRU got him waaaay later than everypony else, because I live in purgatory. So I got to see how he stacked up to the Japanese release, and well how about that nothing really was improved. xD

                                          Friday, 09-Dec-11 14:09:39 UTC from web
                                          1. @jinny It's nothing I would mind if he wasn't so expensive. For comparison, I got Masterpiece Optimus for like half price and he's a great toy.

                                            Friday, 09-Dec-11 14:11:35 UTC from web
                                            1. @thelastgherkin Yes, Masterpiece Prime was like really solid. :3 They need to retool Rodimus, release him with his trailer at the same price and he'll be worth it.

                                              Friday, 09-Dec-11 14:12:23 UTC from web

                                            2. @thelastgherkin Or just give in to my incessant ramblings and release a masterpiece Galvatron.

                                              Friday, 09-Dec-11 14:12:42 UTC from web
                                          2. @jinny Oh, and I got Armada Unicron for half price way back when! That was a great success!

                                            1. @thelastgherkin That's awesome hehe, because he's certainly not half price now dear. ;)

                                              1. @jinny The TRUs here are absolutely pathetic. Pretty sure there's still some Movie stuff hanging around.

            3. @thelastgherkin You spent money on something non pony, you have no say in this.
