My wife is intrigued by the customizing aspect and wants to get involved but wont admit it. lol
And she has bought/found things for me on Facebook, Kijiji, Evilbay ect. Very rare I will buy retail unless its something I know will cost me more online, but she has on occasion made some good grabs.

But anyway, my wife knows it's what I like, and I have the entire basement to decorate as I please. We both "wear the pants" in the family, so to say...so we make decisions together. Meanwhile, we also set up an "allowance," with the idea that we personal shop with in budget. However, the occasional advancement of said allowance is always a possibility... ;)
Having said that, I don't buy $1,000+ Flaggs/etc., so my purchasing amount--although a lot over time--really isn't too extravagant.

I live with my father, and have my whole room covered in toys/posters and everything; always have. Dad always shook his head and wanted me to ditch the kiddie hobbies... UNTIL... some of his friends saw my room and went crazy with adulation-- they thought it was SO COOL. Well now he's like a tour guide-- "You have to see my son's room!" Once he found out it impressed his friends, he did a 180 really quick. I'm glad for his change of heart of course, but also love to tell his friends about all the crap he'd give me over it before he realized it was "cool"!

My wife laughs at me about it, but she also will buy me stuff, and even gets interested when I explain stuff to her. OF course, it probably helps that I keep my collection at the office and not the house. I only have two people that work in my office, and one of them is the guy who got me into it and a fellow Tanker, so that works out well.

My wife is cool with it. She pretends to be interested when I get new figures and vehicles but she really just dont care.
My two youngest daughters, Shiarla and Shyann, are both into it a little. They both love going to the conventions. I think they have more fun at the con than I do. They each have a small collection of figures that they like. Shyann collects all the female figures and a few male. Shiarla collects anything Dreadnok and she likes the 3 3/4 con sets.
The grandkids love playing with all of my GI Joes.
Grandkids haveing fun
just see for yourself.

It's a secret.
No really, I'm totally in the closet about my collection.
Now I feel like a dick...

My wife is ok with the ones I already have. Most are either in my home studio on display, or in the basement carefully stored. I rarely buy anything new, or spend any money on new ones, unless it's with holiday money, since I'm pretty much done with most of my collections.
Trading is still the most fun part of my collecting, and the cheapest way to get the stuff I need to finish sets.

I had a friend come over once. She stared in awe at the comic and toy collection (Lots of Joes, Star Wars, DC universe and Marvel Legends, mostly) and said...
"wow...you must have had a happy childhood."
My fiancee is Ok with the collection. She did see the house before we started dating and thought it was cool. I think it amuses her when I get excited about a new toy. She buys me e-bay gift cards so I can get the classic joe stuff. We are building a house that includes display space for the toys. As long as we have room for her stuff, she is OK with it. I still don't think she knows how many toys I have, though.
My coworkers know about the toys and comics. I rotate the stuff at my cube and when I bring a new one in, people ask who they are. I figure it's my way of community outreach.

My wife is cool with it.
She does think I obsess over these little plastic figures too much at times when setting up a display, but I'd have to agree with her on that!
She bought me a VC Gamorrean Guard, Masterpiece Thundercracker & LEGO TIE Fighter for Christmas.
My son LOVES it!!!
