I mean a full set of every figure, inc rareties like blue snag.
A friend who's frankly a bit skint was considering getting into vintage and I tried telling him it was a bottomless money put if you start from scratch, but he is still keen.
I'm not being funny, but what do you mean by 'a full set'? Everyone defines this differently, since some people will care about both variants 'A' and 'B', whilst others couldn't give 2 hoots about 'B', but definitely want an 'A'. And depending on the figure variant, it can make a huge difference to the cost of the set. For example, if you include a loose toxic limbs Bossk, that's at least an extra grand on the cost right there (assuming you can even find one for sale).
It's a fair bit of work, but the only way to really get an answer to your question is to write out the list of figures in your particular 'full set', but at a minimum it will run into several thousands of pounds at today's prices.
