What's the most you've spent on a Minifigure?

Mine's the 2012 New York Toy Fair Darth Maul polybag - £14.

https://brickset.com/sets/5000062-1/Darth-Maul

I'd really like the Darth Revan polybag too, but currently the cheapest one for sale is £25, and I'm not sure I could bring myself to spend that much on a Minifigure.

What's yours?

    I finally broke down and spent about $30 on Deadpool a few months back.  Other than that I have tried to restrain myself.

    Sheesh, I'm nearly embarassed to admit I spent $200 for a gold chrome C3-PO many years ago, but I did...
    And @xwingpilot, I happen to have an extra MISB Darth Revan lying around, feeling rather lonely and unwanted.
    Drop me a pm, maybe we can work something out!

    About tree-fiddy!






    OK, maybe even less than that. Never really wanted to purchase just a minifigure, outside of the Series ones. And that was back when they were a lot cheaper per bag.

    I spent $40 on a chrome Vader a few years ago but that is about it for expensive ones.

    I spent $36 on Agent Coulson, but he came in a box with a bunch of other parts...

    For me it was £35 for a Davy Jones minifigure last Christmas - but considering they were going for £60 at the time, I was practically saving money... right? :P

    The most I've spent is $3.99 + tax on a series fig. 

    I've been trying to avoid the urge to start collecting a certain theme(s) of figs. It's a rabbit hole I cannot afford to slip into!

    Most I've spent was £70 on a gold 3po.  Not even sure what I was thinking at the time but I'm glad I did.  Second would be £30 on a chrome Darth.
  • GeordiePaulGeordiePaul Glastonbury, CT, USAMember Posts: 524
    $350 for the exclusive snowtrooper minifig that came with Assault on Hoth. I gave the rest of the set away after getting my hands on that precious minifig!

    @samiam391 - I don't even want to know, so don't post an answer :-) but I do feel better now.

    To think I had ten misb chrome vaders (gotten for free at tru), I gave 8 away, sold one for a fiver, and the last...well, I look at him daily.

    I once spent $19 for Mola Ram. Usually $13 is my limit on what I'll spend on a minifigure.
  • jmeninnojmeninno The Batcave (MA)Member Posts: 708
    About $20 on a ~2007 Lego Batman Mr. Freeze (the first time LEGO had the DC license).

    I spent $50 to get Davy Jones recently.  I also just commissioned Minifigs.me to create a Gozer for me. She roughly cost me about $55 including shipping. We bought a Deadpool with the set he came in, when it was new. I saw another poster mentioned him. These are our 3 most valuable Minifigs. I also have custom Freddy Krugers, Jason, Michael Meyers, and Ash from Evil Dead. Those are all the minifigs we have that I value at $20 or more. 

    Unless you count Smaug, I have 2 of him. Speaking of LOTR, the hobbits tend to do pretty well also.
  • mmozzanommozzano UKMember Posts: 413
    I think mine was £18.85 for the Series 1 Zombie followed by £16.75 for the Bumblebee Girl CMF. Spent a small fortune catching up on desirable figures when I first got back into Lego. 
  • elspankdogelspankdog TexasMember Posts: 403
    I'm too embarrassed to post what I paid for a SDCC minifig.

    Another question is what is the most you've sold a minifig?  I think mine is a zombie bride I sold for around $65

    That's not a minifigure, that is a set!

    I sold a Carina from the newest POTC film for $25. Last time I checked, it was still the highest sold one on BL.

    @SumoLego- As a supplier of some of your crazy minifigure purchases I can comfortably (more sadly, really) state that you need to be even more insane to be my deputy mayor... although give me time and I'll get you there ;)

    I can be content to be the dog catcher. 

    I suppose I only have three relatively unreasonable minifigure purchases... and I can keep it at that.

    Well at least none of you paid 18,000 Euros for a 14 carat solid gold 2x4 brick.  These were only given out from 1979-81 in Germany (Hohenwestedt) to LEGO employees who had 25 or more years of service, or business associates of distinction. 

    One 14 carat 2x4 LEGO brick back in February sold for $12,500, and just recently a Belgian collector friend (liquidating his collection) sold his gold brick for 18,000 Euros! :-O

    So don't feel too bad on how much you paid for a little bit of LEGO!!

    I won't be too embarrassed to say that I paid $400 for a mint-in-packaging SDCC 2014 Batman of Zur-en-Arthur minifigure.

    If I can't win them, I'm buying them...

    Keep them coming, this is going to to be a great thread to get me out of trouble as the missus thinks I'm nuts when I say I'm going to drop £650 on a huge Lego set. Thank you all. :)

    I remember correctly it was a sealed #5002946 - Silver Centurion for £20.

    I’ve refused to purchase Minifigures that are sold separately from sets, new or used; I’d have to purchase the set. I’ve also never purchased a set for a specific Minifigure, it’s always various reasons or multiple Minifigures. Given I’ve pretty much cut down on retail sets it won’t be happening as often.
  • AyliffeAyliffe the UK innit?Member Posts: 306
    Dimensions aside ('cos lets be honest, the main selling point for us lot is the 'figs innit), the most I think I've spent is £12 for one of the Orange Lego Universe astronauts - I'd always wanted one when I was a kid, so I treated myself to one at BRICK a couple of years back. It's a good 'un!

    £6 for Quicksilver. No way I was buying that crappy set just for him.
  • vwong19vwong19 San DiegoMember Posts: 1,174
    Despite attending SDCC the past several years, I bought all 4 of the SDCC 2013 Super Heroes minifigures on eBay after not winning each day that year. 

    1. Green Arrow $540
    2. Superman $450 & 325
    3. Spiderman $405
    4. Spiderwoman - $375

    I'm so glad they have not been as limited since then.
  • YodaliciousYodalicious DagobahMember Posts: 1,366
    Somewhere in the $20-30 range. Silver Centurions, Iron Patriots, Joker and Batman from the Tumbler. Probably one or two others in that range. I’m hunting for a Bellatrix, so that may push it a bit. 

    But I do really, REALLY want a Sam Wilson Captain America. 

    So far, not too much on any one specific figure, but ask me to calculate how much I’ve spent total on Iron Man minifigs and I might give myself a minor heart attack. 
  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,296
    6€ for a joker, but it was in addition to arkham asylum breakout for 120€ but without figs.

    I guess the most I saved was 45€ for a sith fury class interceptor without minifigs. no way I was paying 25€ for darth malgus (I think that's him?) or paying like 100€ to get a complete set from europe, when I can get it in france for 45€
  • MrJacksonMrJackson Member Posts: 323
    @Yodalicious I'm in the same boat with some of the Iron Man figures. Probably $30 on Iron Patriot, was given the Silver Centurion as a gift, and got a number of sets just for the others and War Machine figs. They're the only ones I collect all of (only missing the 2012 NY Toy Fair one). I'm trying to come up with a display cabinet for the them but haven't come across any I really like. 
  • TheOriginalSimonBTheOriginalSimonB Felixstowe Member Posts: 1,309
    I guess £4.50, but that will have been attached to a magazine which also had an extra gift. Not yet been able to bring myself to buy loose figures from bricklink or eBay or even a dimensions set even though I'd love to have some of them.
