I started off needing at least one of everything, somewhere around wave 11 or 12 I stopped. Just got burnt out on the constant repaints and lack of space, how many shades of blue CC's does a guy need. Give me a different version like 94' commander!!
so far i've skipped
pp crimson guard
single carded torch and ripper
ubp save for short fuze and stalker
new 5 packs, resolute, cobra 3, joe 2, and greatest battles
will skip most of the movie toys as well
give me a new character or a different version and i'll be happy. everything else is a probable pass

my new rules for saving space (not really worried about money):
1. no movie toys
2. no vehicles
3. no vintage stuff
4. no repaint sub-teams (i.e. Tiger Force, Python Patrol, etc.)
5. only 1 version of each individual character, no matter how many versions are released (although i do army build Vipers, BATs, etc.)

Everything that TRU gets as it's all repainted crap and overpriced. The 5 packs are boring (5 CGs being too late after amassing the single card) The Firefly pack is by far the biggest snoozefest with 4 plain green guys, and I don't care if they were int he cartoons.
The 3 packs are ok, but mostly just repaints of already easy to find figures.
The new 5 packs (Cobra, Joe and Resolute)again, repaints and unnecessary.
Wave 12 has finally hit enmass and they are warming quite nicely. They put 2 divers per case and they are clogging yet Eels are sought after and nowhere to be found. SO I am passing on that whole wave now that I am finished with it.

I am just about finished selling off my 25th Anniversary Collection. I just couldn't keep up with the many items being released, not to mention the space it takes to store it. I had a lot of great items (i.e. Pimp Daddy Destro, Black Timber, etc.). It just no longer seemed necessary to have them anymore.
I am still keeping and collecting vintage style figures. I have everything up through the time before the 25th Collection release. I will maybe part with some stuff as I realize I have too many of one thing.
The economy did have a part in this decision. Also, I decided to focus my collecting energies and try to break my OCD desires. It has felt good to unload all that stuff.

I passed on the following:
Greatest Battles DVD (Repaints)
Python Patrol Conquest (Not a fan of PP)
Tiger Force Rattler (Not a fan of TF)
Python Patrol CG (See above)
Tiger Force Flint (See above)
Tiger Force Duke (Once Again...See above)
I only buy what I like...

Right now I am content with what I have. I will be changing my collecting habits once the movie hits. It will be pick and choose. The one thing I have done is reduce my loose figure collection. I will only buy a double if it,s a major character from 82-85
So far I skipped the greatest battle dvd pack and most of the TRU 5 packs

I am not intentionally scaling back on my Joe spending. There just isn't a lot of Joe stuff being released this year that I feel like spending money on. I'll be ordering multiple Cobra 7 packs, 3 Stingers, 2 FLAK's, 1 more TRU CG set and maybe a couple of other vehicles to build up my Joe forces (couple more VAMPs, Sky Hawks, and Armadillos). That's pretty much it. I just have no interest in any of the other Joe stuff Hasbro is putting out. I guess Hasbro is aleady providing a 12 step program to help some of us bring our plastic crack addictions under control. Three cheers for Hasbro!

I have no variants except for a black mask Destro. Which a fellow tanker hooked me up with. I also don't have an SDCC Destro or Rowdy Roddy. I have been getting the itch but they are just so much money for something that costs no where near what they are going for now. I do collect one of every prime item for MIB status not including variants. I am currently missing the Python Conquest. I am one of the people who is actually glad the line is going on hiatus for the movie. I want to take a break and do something else with my time and loot. That being said I will buy the 7 pack and new vehicles. I am going to pass on the movie stuff. That stuff is not canon IMHO.
