On the whole my wife is very cool about it, but she has her moments, especially when I army build. She's a smoker, though, so I can always mention how much more destructive her nasty, habit is. "Yeah, well at least my addiction has some kind of value and can't get me terminally sick."

My wife has been collecting the 25th line with me... its just as exciting to her when we find figures we need, its kinda cool... now I don't feel like a child with all these toys because she likes em too. Although she does say I need a bigger toy box alot, lol

"what's all this... serpentor on your face?!"
"this aint serpentor... this is DOO-DOO, BAYBEH!!"
so yeah, my wife... she is uh, tolerant?
she would rather i not spend our money on useless plastic, but she agrees i could be spending it on worse things. plus i have a monthly limit of $200, so there you have it.
she wont go with me to stores, but if we happen to be somewhere (walmart, target) she will leave me in the toys while she looks at clothes or something haha so it works out.
her biggest pet peave is when i run out of display room but keep buying and trying to stuff them everywhere. resolved by agreeing to put up more shelves. i have showed her the display case somebody here showed (not the detolf but the other badass ikea display) and she loves it. keeps them out of the way, dust free, KID PROOF, and actually tastefully constructed.
sometimes she gets annoyed by my customizing too. i admit sometimes i spend too much time tinkering, but its a hobby and i would say its a fairly safe and cheap one. just very time consuming lol
i think im pushing it though, trying to finish my HISS contest entry while trying to take care of newborn twins...
ehhh you win some you lose some.
i did tell her i plan on selling off most of my figures to concentrate only on joes and marvel figures. maybe occasionally dabbling in star wars.
she was shocked at this and asked "why? are you sure?"
i think she feels guilty about giving me a hard time, but i told her i have so much junk i need to just get rid of and concentrate on just a few lines, plus with babies...
wow i just wrote a novel. haha sorry!

Yeah, my wife is not interested in it at all...
But she watched and (at least told me she) enjoyed every episode of the Sunbow series... though she agrees with me as we currently watch the DIC series that it's crap. Though she did wish it was Quick Kick that got the pointy end of the snake in the movie, rather than Duke.
This is the same girl though that refuses to think "Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker" is canon due to what happened to Tim Drake.
She does make a trip to the toy aisle for me when she's out... and has yielded some nice results from it as well. The latest was the Crimson Guard battle pack... though I'm not supposed to know about that yet.

My wife was encouraging for a long time - calling me when she found stuff out and about, talking with me about the upcoming releases.
Recently she became complacent - she listented to me dither on about the future releases, obviously disinterested.
After that skeptical - how long will this go on?
Now, I live in a home where my wife disdains my hobby, refuses to look for stuff when she is out and I should not even bring up the subject.
The worst part is I have bought one figure in the last month.
So count your blessings those of you with encouraging or involved wives.
