I just wash my hands, that is usually enough for me. I'm kinda anal about washing my hands before touching anything I consider to hold value though.

Monkey Depot is cheaper, but you're gonna have to check their site every day. tmthobby on eBay is the usually on the bleeding edge of parting out figures first, but you have to take your chances with auctions.

I've stuff in the $200, $350, even $400 range. I don't think I get as much enjoyment out of them as I do simple, cheap little novelties.

Most toys that go above the $200 range are rarely ever actually playable. They're usually 1:6 dolls and 12" figures are pretty unwieldy. And since they're dolls, they usually use fabric and fabric on toys can be pretty fiddly, which hampers their playability too.

IF they're not dolls, then it's vehicles and playsets. $200+ vehicles in general are also unwieldy, because they're also 12"+, so it makes palying with them very hard to do. You can't zoom around a 16" tank like you could with a 5" car.
If you can treat the vehicle like a playset, like say, some 24" transport helicopter where you're loading troopers into the compartment, it can be fun.

THEN there's "super premium" toys, like diecast mecha, which frequently go over $200. That shit is rarely ever worth the money it goes for. It's basically $50-100 toys being upcharged because it's super niche, either because the company is greedy or because there's very few collectors who actually want them.
Enjoyment isn't any less or better than similar toys of that size and type. Quality is also little better, if it's better at all. Nevermind the lies that diecast is even considered a premium, when it's cheaper to produce and has less detail than high pressure injected molded plastic.
Only reason to buy "premium" shit is if it doesn't exist elsewhere.
>>
>>10054554
Depends on my mood. Sometimes I like a nice high quality import, other times I like a cheaper domestic figure. It just depends.

I have all these and a bunch of Mario characters. Who else is available to add? Looking for some 4-5 inch Minecraft Steves / Alexes too. Thanks, all.

Well it's their toys they can do whatever they wish with them. Some people like to open them and play with them as I do. Some people just like them for decorations, or perhaps they really do believe they are some kind of investment. Whatever the case it's their money they are spending.
Even if they buy it just to melt it down it's their choice, there's always going to be people who destroy, and people who build. That's just life man.

I had 5 figures sitting in my cart on Dorkside for a few days from their Summer sale. All figures I vaguely wanted, but was only really considering because of how low their prices were. Ended up putting in the order for about $70+ after shipping, around what I pay for a single import figure, and immediately wished I hadn't. I've got 300+ figures and already have over 30 unopened figures with no space to display them. Fortunately, I'd waited so long to order, 3/5 figures were out of stock, so I just cancelled the whole order.

Have you ever regretted buying something before even receiving the figure?

I feel guilty for being selfish and possibly irresponsible. Like I've got three toys hiding in my car right now, I slowly filter them in so the Mrs doesn't rip my friggin head off. Ah well, never said I'm not a shitty person. Got her a nice pearl ring for her bd day.

When I was in my early 20's and living with my parents I would buy absolutely everything that caught my eye. I did have a few purchases that I regretted, mostly figs from IPs I didn't know, and my collection got to be way too big for my tastes. Ended up having a huge cull and only keeping figs from a particular IP that I love. The irony is there's a few figs I regret giving up but I'm not about to go out and rebuy them.

>>10059102
I usually do research and have a good idea of what I'm getting before I actually buy something.

Honestly, 20. Only reason I stopped was because of moving in with the gf and being too embarrassed since she's always home when I am. Although, it was only Army Men and old beat up GI Joes by that point, and it'd be a sporatic thing once every few weeks. Around 17 though, I did get way more concerned with actually converving my toys, I didn't want to ruin newer purchases, so those were strictly for posing and displaying. I do still come up with backstories for photo shoots and on the rarest chance I get alone time and there's nothing better to do, I'll dick around with Army Men at the desk, but the days of a bucket of beat up figures to simply smash around for a few hours is long gone. I think it stems from most of my childhood collection getting thrown away by my mother when she lost custody back in the day, so now I can't ruin a toy out of an irrational fear of never getting another one. Even accidentally scratching a figure bums me out sometimes. Ironically though, my gf says I can play with my toys if I ever need to for nostalgia's sake when she's around but I never did that shit in front of anyone as a kid and I'm not doing it in front of her lol. That, and I'll usually do something more productive whenever I have the time. Sorry for the blogpost.

Probably sometime in high school. I used to build my own bonkles and as I was building them I would come up with stories for them to keep my mind occupied. Nowadays I just pose my figures and leave them like that until I want a new pose for them. Sometimes I'll pose figures fighting each other and sometimes part of that is having them do motions to see if I like the feel of a pose or if the figure can pull off the pose I'm aiming for.

I wish I'd played with them longer. I'm in my thirties and the last time I can remember being genuinely happy was when I was 10 or 11 years old, spending hours sitting on my bed playing with my g.i. joes.

Are there any other instances of a cheap domestic toy mogging an import toy of the same character?

Only one that really crosses my mind is the s.h.monsterarts 62 Godzilla vs the neca 62 Godzilla that released around the same time.

Nah I need Rogue and her fat fucking ass and Beast is pretty cool too. Ultimately I'm glad I got the Marvel Legends versions because I could flip them to fund the Mafex ones if I wanted(but I just gave most of them to my nephew because he enjoyed them more). I will probably keep the Rogues, though.

Have you never ordered from them before? They ALWAYS send a card with her (and sometimes one of her buddies) on it. What's more, there's a different card each month - I've got a million of the things at this point, but I'm guessing pic related is the one OP is talking about, since it's the most recent one with her ass on display.
The general rule of thumb is that if you're ordering weebshit, you should never open it in public - you never know what may be packed in there. Alternately, move the fuck out of your parents' basement, and you'll never have to worry about opening shit in discretion ever again.
