I found myself in a difficult situation; the auction was almost over and had to decide wither to bid on the lots. I realized that I couldn't bid on both; the foot figures would be more useful to me. I decided to bid on the foot figures. I bidded on them, only to be outbid. I was going to give up as the price was more than I could afford. At the last minute, I did rise my bid, and to my surprise won. One problem with collecting out of production figures is you can wait years to find figures you want, and if you don't buy them when you get the chance, you can find yourself waiting more years for another opportunity.
