I've come very close to buying a figure I don't really want just out of some need to get something. I'm pretty good at restraining myself. I have ordered things I don't need from HTS just because it seems like such an event when things show up there.

I am strictly a MOC collector, but it got so bad that I bought an extra viper and Snake Eyes wave 7 to open.
I even bought other stuff like the joker/scarecrow movie masters....but that was more to sell, at least I wasn't completely unhappy.

With money as tight as it is these days there is no way I can settle. I see the same TRU 3 packs looking back at me as if to say "today is the day, you will buy us". You have no idea how frustrating it is to actually see new figures on the shelf and not have the cash to buy right then and there. I have been lucky enough to find a figure here and there when I had money. The pickens are slim all around me. I had a huge ordeal just trying to find one last Doc sticker last week. I opened and had to return 3 different comic packs at two stores and still did not get a sticker. Finally a tank member offered to mail me one. I am waiting patiently for that to come. Good luck in your search and it won't be long before we don't have to settle and the shelves will be saturated with Joes.
....and knowing is half theYo Joe!

It's pretty much a hit and miss!
And even though i'm caught up with the new releases, I found myself buying another set of the Cobra Night Watch because there's just nothing else that I can buy. But i'm still happy with the extra set.

I'm pretty good at just picking up what I want. I'm not a completist; rather, I only buy what I like. I have passed on the Wave 8 Roadblock, the cheap Wave 9 repaint of SS, Python Officer (not my style), and even Tiger Force Flint (also, not my style) without even thinking twice about it.
I have just about every figure I want...with the exception of that damn FLASH; I should've bought him when I saw him. My only regret so far is not buying that FLASH!
Oh...and don't get me wrong; while I didn't pick up TF Flint, I do have a set of Wave 1 Flints...

Damn TRU and their $5 off $25 coupons... always making me buy something! One time there were no joes in sight(surprising huh!) I ended up buying an elite force A-10 which i have no room for..doh! Then another time I promised myself I would not buy the snake-eyes vs. red ninja pack because it was a lame repaint...guess what's sitting in my closet now....double DOH!!

I have read many times on other toy collector's boards about the hunter's need to score that next hit of plastic crack, so I sympathize with those of you who have bought stuff you wouldn't have if the store would've had what you wanted in stock.
I don't get the urge to buy something no matter what, but I do get frustrated at how ridiculously hard it is to find some of these toys. I think what helps me is that I always go on a errand/grocery/fast food run when I hunt, so I'm not pissed at myself for wasting time/gas.
