Just curious if any of you feel this way about the recent economy,whether it has some way or another affected our spending power for gi joes?

It probably will. We're bracing for layoffs in the financial sector.

Well, here's the thing. I'm a compulsive collector of many lines and I play a very tricky game to get stuff, which I'd rather not do. I do the store credit game, the return and by back cheaper when it goes on clearance game, the order from on-line dealers and cancel when I find it to save on shipping game, the sell stuff thats rare to pay for more collectibles game. It gets tiresome and I'd rather just buy and be merry but thanks to the Bush administration I must play games.

Something tells me that people who are into collecting Joes aren't day traders on Wall Street.
Any white collar criminals in our midst? ARBCO lobbyists? Freds selling porkbelly futures? Come on, pipe up!

it will very soon if the lending crisis is not resolved. i'm not so much worried about loosing my job as inflation and cost of living increase in conjunction with little to no increase in pay will eat my discretionary spending money. my health insurance is going up 13% this year alone...

Hell yes. I buy one of everything and have been pilfering my old toys to anyone that'll buy them just to make Joe spending cash.

I used to by anything and everything I wanted within reason. Now things are tight and I buy sparingly or not at all. I have also taken to selling off my old toys (Transformers/GI Joes) to pay for the new ones. If it weren't for this site, I'd not be able to get at least half the things I have in the 25th collection.
