I was curious as to what is the approximate amount of money you have spent on your entire dragon ball collection. I have spent over $1500 and since I do not have huge collections like the ones I have seen in these forum so I was just curious as to how much youve spent.
hakuna matata money is just paper if its not spent
In AUD maybe $1000-1400?? If I calculated it it would probably be more lol. But that's what it feels like I've spent. My collection isn't gigantic either, though it's pretty good if I say so myself. I enjoy owning them, which is the main thing!
On instagram - @waveactionfigures. Just figuarts poses!
I'd say I spent over 1,000$ on it, and I'm still not even close to say my collection is complete.
You haven't figured it out yet? I'm the Saiyan who came all the way from Earth for the sole purpose of beating you. I am the warrior you've heard of in legends, pure of heart and awakened by fury. That's what I am. I AM THE SUPER SAIYAN, SON GOKU!
I only collect Super Battle Collection now, so not much currently invested/spent. I dont recall what I spent on everything else I used to own, but I do know I sold it for a pretty good profit. Some SH Figuarts have dropped in value due to Premium Color Editions and I had the foresight to sell mine before the PCEs were released.
wow, I was just buying figures and buying and buying without realizing how much I had spent and found out I spent 1500 just on Figuarts, and they keep releasing figures. I have made a list of everything I want to buy such as the full color manga, master stars piece and the figure collection chouzoushu, and the xenoverse 2 collectors edition. I did the math and its around 1k dollars more in dragon ball figures. And recently I messed up a figure bad (ssgss goku) trying to custom the color to orange and I messed up, so now its another $40.

I stayed with the Bandai collections, and I don't like to repeat characters, unless they are in a different transformation or a different saga. Also, counting some figurines from the Achette french collection. So a bit over $1000. Banpresto is too expensive, and I do not like the shinny finish. I only got the Ozaru from them, since it can pass as part of the Bandai's collection.
One thing I think is worth mentioning is this thread is that using the word "invested" suggests that you're spending the money with an expectation of achieving a profit. I've collected many things in my life, in addition to Dragon Ball figures and something I've learned is that these types of collectable arent always the best investment. I own a few figures that used to sell for hundreds back when I was young, but now a days they're worth a quarter of their original price. This goes for anything in life, really. You can buy it cheaply and sell it at a profit, so long as you do both these things at the right time.
I suppose my point is that dont buy these figures hoping to make a fortune or profit one day. Its very risky. Buy them because you like them and enjoy the hobby.
