I found a Millenium Falcon Extraordinaire thru a friend......$600 bucks. I had to have it and it was the last chance I figured I would just do it. I gotta admit, I love a huge, action figure sized Falcon.

Pretty sure that's a store display piece from when the original trilogy was re-released in the 90's with all the new footage. TRU had them if I recall correctly.

Yes, it was the large hanging model of the MF that was in TRU stores. Thought I would never get one, then an opportunity came up and BAM! Just had to do it.

I always wanted one of those big display Falcons, but I don't even have room to display the BMF Falcon that Hasbro released so I don't know WHAT I would do with one of those. I guess I'd have to live in it. :lol:

Approx. $300 for a Yamato 1/24 Patlabor Ingram 1. I bought it heavily discounted so it wasn't supposed to cost that much (damn customs duties... :evil: ).

I believe $120 for an MOC Estrela Super Powers Plastic Man is the most I've ever spent on a single toy. That was very hard to justify, but I mean, American release Plas MOC go for like $80-100, so, when I saw it, with the little comic inside and everything, I just did it. I don't usually spend that much on toys, I try to keep my toy spending to a minimum. After that, I'd say Stay Puft, which was however much it was on matty. 80, i think? And the Muppets Backstage Playset, which was somewhere around $80 also, I think. The only other toy I'd drop a large chunk of cash on would be a Mego Stretch Armstrong Plastic Man, and the few times I've seen them, they go for way more than I even have. One day, though, I will own it.

I keep looking at the Devastator knockoff "Hercules" but I just can't seem to pull the trigger. Even the combined package is just too much. :?

For a single figure, really not much. Maybe $70 for a BAF Pitt. I'd like to have any army of Pitt's.

I'd say my two MOTUC Castle Grayskulls, but since I technically haven't paid yet, not sure those count. I guess it would be the Gentle Giant Scout Trooper and Speeder Bike Statue that came out 8 or 9 years ago, think I gave right around $300 for it. If my mind doesn't change I may be dropping around $700 on a toy very soon

$600 for a Palisades Wedding Kermit and Miss Piggy. Very exclusive item, never sold in stores. Got it directly from the person that it was made for (Ken Lilly's wedding). I had been in touch with Ken for a while and the proceeds for it went directly to a foundation that he's a part of that helps with disabled children. Ken is a super-nice person and I was more than happy to help out the organization.
