Yeah, he was pretty costly. He was worth it, though I think. He is a custom, made according to my specs. Although to be truthful, there are a lot of regular My Little Ponies that go for as much and even more than I paid for my Starchild. I paid $50 for him. A mint My Little Pony can go for $70 plus on ebay, depending on how sought after that pony is. If it's MIB, the pony can go for over $100. There was one pony MIB that went for over $2000. I cannot afford those ponies. I am finally getting one of the "sought after" ponies next week, and she will cost me $50, and she's is not mint. Her name is Mimic, and if I got a mint Mimic, I'd pay about $200 or $300 for her. I never thought I could afford a Mimic, but luckily I found a collector who is willing to sell me my Mimic for $50, because I've purchased from her before and we've become friendly.
