    Is it worth buying a toy for 160$?

    There's a LEGO set in my local toy shop with a very distinct, large setup, that includes a minifigure of Darth Malgus, a minifigure I've been longing for. He is primarily the reason I am seeking to buy the set, but it is 160$ total...is it worth it?

    IMO, if it means something important to you and you'd get more interest or use out of it than "Well that was nice" and goes in the closet never to be seen again, then yes I would say it's worth it.

    I used to collect Star Wars figurines when I was a little kid. And back then, I was a very destructive person, and I'd always smash up my toys when playing with them. 12 years later, I still like them, but now I simply plan to build the models and display them on my desk.

    Pretty much this. But personally I would say; "Legos?! Say no more, OF COURSE IT IS!"

    Remember, some people spend $85,000+ on "toys" Such as a Dode Viper.. You could make the argument that it is a car and not really a "toy". But then again, Do you really need to spend 85 grand on a car? Not really, therefore I would classify the purchase as a "toy". So compared to that, $160 is pretty trivial.

    I think you should give that $160 to me.

    Eeyup.

    (seriously if your budget allows for it go for it)
    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.

    There is the Fury Interceptor that Lego sells directly online for $90 that also comes with a Darth Malgus Mini-figure you might want to look into.

    or op could borrow it to me so i can afford some nice bose noise cancelling headphones or a new motherboard.
    but yeah if you want it op go for it but make sure to shop around a little first to make sure you arent getting ripped off/overcharged.
    160$ for a lego set sounds suspiciously high.

    If you're struggling to pay bills at all, no. If you're saving up for something, no. If you've got a lot of disposable money, then yea. Personally, I wouldn't, even if I had more than enough money. I don't like superfluous crap like that.

    If I had much more money than I have now, I would have an entire room dedicated to Lego's and only Lego's.

    So, if you can afford it and you want it, just do it.

    I haven't played with Legos in years, but oh, the memories.

    Just ask yourself what's the opportunity cost of spending $160. If you can part with it, go ahead. Lego sets are collectibles that may be worth something later on, too, if that helps.

    Maybe you should make less threads and do more thinking about your own questions.

    what does that have to do with him wanting a second opinion on a lego set?

    It has to do with him "wanting a second opinion" on 10 topics a day.

    It's only worth as much as you're willing to pay for it.

    It's not the sort of toy that will hold its price or appreciate in price, so it's up to you.

    Shit I just bought it.

    I feel so giddy, but guilty at the same time.
