    I must admit, I really want the Sailor Moon Cosmic Crescent Wand, and the Spiral Heart Rod! The problem is, when I've looked online, they're either $100 or more. Are there any toys that you want, but you won't buy because they're too expensive?

        The Trendmasters Ultimate Godzilla from the (somewhat forgetful) 1998 American version... couldn't get it off eBay because it was either way too expensive or I don't have the PayPal or cajones to get it. I wish I could find one at a garage sale or thrift store for a lower price.

          I'd really like some of the Mattycollector He-man/She-ra figures, but 30 bucks is a bit much for an action figure. Now if it was the sort of figure that Todd MacFarlane used to do, that would be a different story. Or if they used the same moulds as the 80s figures. THEN I would plunk down 30 bucks for them. Especially if they'd reissue an exact copy of Castle Greyskull.
          Don't pay any attention to the evil spirited and dead of heart. They're not worth your time.

                  None because I buy what ever toys I want. Having a job makes it possible. Now there are plenty of adult toys like that run into into 1000s of dollars I would like to buy. Someday I'll be able to afford them.

                    I've been wanting to expand my Boglin collection lately, but the prices on eBay are ridiculous!

                        The Matty Collector Ghostbuster figures "DARN" when they came out they were like 60.00 bucks a pop plus shipping. Now there even worse since I last looked there 100.00 usually on the net, I hate that plus you guessed it shipping good grief.

                              Yes, the MOTU Classics are awesome as hell. I have He-Man, but the rest are way too pricey and impossible to get besides eBay. They have 2-packs featuring the DC Universe Classics figures I'd like to get. Aquaman & Mer-Man, Hawkman & Stratos and Lex Luthor &. Skeletor are pretty available at Toys R Us for $30

                              BTW, they did a commemorative series of the original molds and packaging a few years ago. They are great for nostalgic collectors.

                                I would LOVE to have the Muppet Show backstage playset with Rowlf action figure (the other Muppet figures in this pic didn't come with it, just Rowlf) made by Palisades toys...



                                As I mentioned in the "what have you ebought" thread, I spend close to 100 bucks to get the Electric Mayhem stage playset with Animal, which is pretty costly for me. I would have to shell out a cool 500 bucks to get this set and that's if I'm lucky enough to even find it on ebay anymore, it's super rare and super expensive.

                                  Two other toys I want to get are the Technodrome playset, and Monster Face. There are two problems when it comes to buying the Technodrome playset. 1. People on ebay want $80-$100+ for it. The Technodrome is an awesome playset,but it's not worth what people are asking for it. 2. When people sell the set, the eye is usually missing. I don't want the playset if the eye is missing, because the eye rolling down and hitting figures is my favorite feature of the set. There are two sellers on ebay trying to sell Monster Face. One is MISB, and the other one is out of the box, but 100% complete with all the pieces, including the green glob. The problem with the Monster Face that's MISB, is that the seller wants $565+ for it. I kid you not! And th problem with the other one is that one of the switches is broken. And the seller wants $325 or more total for it. Nobody in their right mind is going to pay that much for these toys.

                                    A brand new dirt bike and 4-wheeler.

                                    A badass guitar with dragon inlays with the amp Marty McFly blew himself across the room with.

                                    A limo full of high class hookers and top shelf liquors.

                                    Those are some toys I want but cannot afford.

                                        I'd KILL for an original rocket firing Boba Fett prototype action figure from 1979. Too bad only two of them supposedly still exist.
