Definitely...I'm almost acquiring something new each week. Not good for the bank account, especially when I would like to get married one of these days! Yellow_Hot_Colorz_PDT_02

How much is your collection costing you? How much is it worth?

I dunno how much it's worth...I had kept my SW items from childhood (Just a few items) and didn't officially start collecting until the release of the 'modern era' figures in 1995. How much it's been costing me...Well...I have a lot of action figures and each one ranges around $8 to $10 (CDN). The vehicles can be around the $30 (CDN). I also get the Japanese Kotobukiya statues at around the $110 (CDN) range. You can do the math but it's so hard to keep up-to-date as to how much I've spent. I get a figure here and there only if I find something I like and I need.

Not keeping track of your expenses can potentially be an out-of-control situation wink

The 80's Generation One Transformers are actually from childhood...They are in "played with" condition but I kept the boxes and the inserts including the blister/bubble. I guess it was a good idea at the time!

You know what that says? You were BORN with the toy/action figure collection instinct smile

So, would you like to meet up when I go to Vancouver? smile A couple friends have asked me to join them this December for a week-long road trip. The plans are still preliminary.

I wish I could bro...But I don't have enough days off left for this year for like a week's time of vacation. I'd love to visit Vancouver one day...Lots of mountains...Beautiful scenery...Typical west coast! You don't get anything like that here in the GTA! I hope you have fun bro and please take lots of pics! Cap_PDT_01_21
