So far I have resisted the urge to buy stuff I am not interested in. But my resolve wears thin with each wasted trip...and I am going shopping in the morning!

I am trying lately to avoid going at all just to avoid this....and to avoid the depression that comes with not finding anything.

Bought a HISS Driver last night outta spite for just missing wave 9 at the second Wal-Mart I checked. Kinda stung when it rang up at 7.64 though.

I usually don't settle on stuff if I don't find anything. If I don't really want the figure then I'm certainly not going to stand in line to get a toy that I barely want.
When I'm buying a lot of stuff that's usually when I'm more likely to buy a heap of stuff and include something that is borderline. Although my mentality is buy first return later if I need to. So just because I buy it doesn't mean I'm keeping it.
You guys that settle are the guys that the manufacturers count on when they include chase figures in assortments.

It just gets frustrating to hit three stores in an afternoon, having the lug the kids in and out of the car to go home empty handed. I did hit target yesterday and leave with nothing. So I guess I do have some self control.
Looks like they had wave 9 at some point as Wild Bill was warming the pegs.

First off you have to understand my area. I have two Wal-Marts and that is it. They are both over 20 miles from me. The nearest Target or Toys are Us is over 100 miles from me.
So needless to say, I am honestly never really dissapointed when I do not see a thing.
I have scored a few good items from time to time though. But for the most part I have bought from Online Sources.
I do have a tendency though to see other items though. I have started collecting some of the Indian Jones stuff, just because it looks cool with my GI Joe stuff.
So in a way, I quess it is a good thing sometimes.
