I'm 23 years old and have gotten really excited about collecting G.I. Joes. I've dropped some serious $$$ on 25th Anniversary and vintage ARAH figures/vehicles over the past few months. My friends view all my displays and say my room looks like it belongs to an 8 year old. My girlfriend thinks I'm crazy every time I go running to the toy section at Target looking for new figures.
As an adult, I now have more G.I. Joes than I ever had as a kid. Sometimes I can't help but feel a bit guilty for being the old guy at Toys R Us who is shopping for.... himself. Do any of you ever feel the same way?

Im in the same boat, my room is filled with Joes(mostly), few Transformers, Iron Man, Marvel Legends/DC figs, TMNT. The rest of my collection is in storage.
Yeah I had more stuff now than when I was 6,7,8,9,10,11, 12.

sometimes i guess i feel like it shouldnt be as high as a priority as it becomes but i enjoy collecting. it gets old sometimes though and i do take breaks. its hard to be excited about gijoe all the time. you have to take a step back from time to time and just say i have enough right now. lol but i know what you mean.

I always keep in my mind that this is my main hobby so I don't spend much on other stuff except the GF, family, and necessities. Also, I also make sure I keep to a budget and that I can afford it. It's hard though sometimes but I try.

You know I use to feel guilty alot, but as I've gotten older I have come to accept that this is what I like. It's what I enjoy...so I say do what makes you happy - you only live once.

Not an ounce of guilt. I am a little burnt out but now I just look at other lines to possibly do a custom. I have gone a little overboard but it has not hurt my social life or put me in debt so I'll ride the train until it stops.
The only ones that should feel guilty are the repackers. They are the ones that have no soul.
