I was thinking about this last night after looking over my last month's credit card bill. I have already started slowing down the army builds - not only is it a money drain, but I am running out of space! Not only will I look to cut out ebay, but I may cut out online ordering unless I get good deals on shipping - I always add the shipping cost into my cost per figure. I spent way too much in 2008.

I'll end up spending more cuz I just got my son hyped about GI Joe with his x-mas presents. Now he loves his Joes. So I'll end up buying them for him more.

I think I am safe because I hardly know any of the figures past 87'
Diogenes, one of the better known proponents of the school of Cynics, was often seen to be strolling about with a lamp in broad daylight and when asked what it was for, he would reply "I'm looking for an honest man."

I won't be buying anything online I don't believe. I'll just wait to see if they get released in store for the next 6 months (I have to shop for work anyway so I don't really pay for gas that much).
After 6 months I may actually break down and get some stuff online if I must..like the Best of DVD set. If I'm patient I bet I'll find it though....

Definitely up this year. I'm expecting a lot of odd non-toy merchandise with the movie this year.

Luckily I get financial aid for school. I have a couple of C.D.'s maturing around the time the new Transformer movie comes out, so that will help.

I don't think I can stop! Lol Good thing I have job. LoL I mean I like the Resolute Figs but have to wait to see what the movie line will look like and if it will be worth getting. Love the vehicles! So those are a must! Don't really army build that much except for the vehicles. Lol. Plus I like the vintage Joe stuff too, M.A.S.K. Toys and Transformers! Like I said, I don't think I can stop. It's like a sugar rush. Lol Look out 2009, here I come!

Same. I have a set budget that I can spend each month. I get what I can in that budget and wait on the rest for when I can get it.

Yes, it is an addiction. I was only gonna get one of each. That turned into 1 MOC 1 loose. Then I was army building the figs. Then I was army building the vehicles. Then came those cute little combat heros. I wanna stop, but I can't!!!! But the some of the movie line figures might help me with that. Then again, some might contribute!!!! I can't win.
Cobra has won. The Battle is over. Or is it?
