Re: Do you ever buy a figure only because everyone wants it?

No...I never let others opinions influence mine.

Nope...passed on 99% of the Energon, Cybertron, Armada and RID lines. Only picked up the OP's, Meg's and couple of fliers. All four of those lines just didn't speak to me; much like the PCC line.

Sometimes I buy a toy that's in high demand with the reasoning that, while I might not want it now I might decide later on that I need it in my collection only to find that it's become impossible to find.

Generally, these are the only toys that I leave MISB, since it means that if I decide I don't actually want it I can probably sell it for about what I bought it for, or donate it to one of those toy charities that sets up around Christmas.

Re: Do you ever buy a figure only because everyone wants it?

I buy what I like.

Originally I was gonna pass on Rodimus, but seeing it in motion in Peaugh and Vange1us's youtube review, I changed my mind. I was committed to buying it exclusive or not.

Re: Do you ever buy a figure only because everyone wants it?

in general no.
i WAS tempted to get MP grimlock because everyone was saying how reat it was if you loved grims...but i still have yet to find him anywhere by me so that fleeting feeling of wanting him went away due to no grimlocks to buy

No one said we weren't hyped by a figure, he asked if we buy a figure because it's the hot item simply because of what others say.

I've bought hyped figures because I WANTED them, not because someone else said it was the hot item. There is a difference.
