Whenever I see a friend pay good money for a figurine, I roll my eyes and go, "Surely that money can be put to better use?" Figurines such as the Japanese Be@rbrick and KAWS OriginalFake are expensive toys, and toys to me were things you put away for good after a certain age. People like Nigo and Pharrell Williams may beg to differ with my opinion, but I never fully understood the thrill of the hunt that has many men hooked. For them, scoring a rare figurine is like striking gold. I much prefer the 24k, 22k and 18k variants.
