Ultimately, that’s something you have to decide for yourself.
It’s limited, it’s nice looking and you get to have CARS before anyone else (other than about 1,100 other people in this world) in a nice box … can you logically argue for and against buying this set? Of course.
It’s certainly not “cheap” by most measures at $300+ … but it’s not unheard of … want the Sideshow Toys PREMIUM Indiana Jones figure? $280 clams + shipping.
Or the Aliens Power Loader (sold out) also from Sideshow Toys – $249
Plus $139 for the Alien …
Or you don’t have to go far, HWC has been selling this set with display case for $199 + shipping since last October …
Of course, there are plenty of things you can buy outside of toys for $200-$300 … how about a Louis Vutton hair band?
Is this also known as a scrunchie? This Louis Vuitton version is $335 BTW.
Of course, you can also spend money and not have a lot to show for it …
Parking in a bus zone in SF? $250
“Fine for parking in a Bus Zone
Violators are subject to a fine of $250. Parking in a bus zone is a hazard to passengers attempting to board or exit a bus and may prevent disabled individuals from boarding.”
The Digg story of the guy who spent $300 for an email address?
You can buy an HDMI cable for your TV – $374 … oh sorry, $373.99.
Or 6 Your Love Makes My Heart Blossom figurines – only $50 each. They are so gosh darn cute!
If this global warming thing is true – time to step up and motorize your cooler for double duty … now in electric versions! Your teenage kids will love a ride in this to school. A little spendier at $399 plus $100 for the cooler trailer.
Are you like most people who think – this is the 21st century – why am I living like a barbarian of the neolithic age and still have to pour my own cereal? Yes, civilization has finally advanced … finally, battery powered cereal dispensing … and as they note, “ it looks great too!”
WAIT, there’s more! “Because the unit is automatic, there are no dials or cranks to be twisted or to crush the cereal. Just press a bowl against the dispensing mechanism and
out comes the cereal.”
FINALLY! Yea, the last unit I got, the squirrel fell down into the crank and I not only got crushed cereal but crushed squirrel flakes.
So, my friends – spend your money wisely or poorly …
