I must note that she feels that she needs to compete by purchasing COACH shoes, sandals, flip flops, winter boots, wallets, billfolds, handbags and purses for every occasion possible. Which thankfully discredits any arguement that she tries to hold with my collection.

Last time she saw my collection, she said "im glad I saw this, you have no need to ever buy another GIJOE again. Really Gald" Two days later she was calling me from target telling me what Joes they had, and she bought me two. She gets over it quickly.
Also, after she sees my collection, she has the sudden urge to buy a new purse.

I mainly have Joe toys (vintage and 25th) and TMNT vintage boxed and carded items, most in star cases hanging on the wall or in a case.
I used to mainly collect statues and art, but that got REALLY expensive and had to take a break from it. I owned alot of Sideshows statues and alot of them I had went up in price dramatically so I sold most of my statues....now I am slowly trying to get some back.

I'm an uber-geek married to a woman who thankfully is cool. She could care less but knows I like comics, GIJOE and basses. She knows I get crazy excited when I see trailers for movies (Watchmen, TDK) or the new wave being released. She knows I live in a weird fantasy land often. She supports it. I support her and my kid. I do have a lot but most is boxed and protected. She only says something when she's mad at something unrelated. She takes it out on the toys. A few days later she's asking me questions about why I still love these fantasy things so much. She doesn't get it but knows it makes me happy.

"You haven't even opened the toys you already have"
She accepts the habit. Mainly because it predates our relationship. My basement is a jungle, and I keep saying that I'll move the Joes to clear room to the washing machine. However, I have cut back significantly, while also making more money, so she doesn't have a problem. I'm sure that if we had a baby, or couldn't make the mortgage payment, it would be a problem. But hopefully I would be smart enough to cut back then.
Several months ago I read about a guy whose wife left him because of his Joe habit. I thought it was one of the saddest things I had ever read. I even showed it to my wife, who said, "She didn't leave him because of his Joes". I thought about that a lot, and I'm sure she is right.
