More than a dollar amount I usually ballpark 2 or 3 figures that I want then I go after 'em.

Then again I stick strictly to Dunnys.

i cant spend that much, i have other priorities right now, new Canon DSLR equipment isnt very cheap either. but jeez, $900 on some kidrobot stuff is insane, i call that passion. (or just addiction, lol) $900 barely pays for my 24-70 f2.8L lens.

I was bad in the beginning. Blowing each paycheck on vinyl. Now I have money set aside and work out if it's affordable and if I really want it.

In the 15 or so years I have been collecting action figures, and now action figures and vinyl, I've spent about $50,000. I have tapered off though and in the past year only spent around 4G. My Wife asked me to bring my spending down until my business thrives more. The past 2 months I did pretty well and spent around 5 or 6 hundred. You know you have tooo many toys when you move and the boxes fill 2 20 X 20 rooms. My name is Rich......and I am a toy addict. Next...

Since I bought my first toy I've Spent a measly $200 (about)

But My only actual shopping spree was a few weeks ago when i went to my first vinyl toy store (rotofugi... why are you so far away?!!?!) and spent $109 there... and thats just that I was being rushed and forgot ALOT of things.... :(... but if i had a choice I'd be spending all my money on it.... i just dont have any place to feed my addiction... a blessing or curse????


anyways yeah..... ... i wish i had a way to order online :(

This year I haven't been too bad on how much I've spent...However, I've probably spent the money at the wrong times..lol

All in all this year I've probably spent only $400US on toys....Which to me isn't bad at all..Last year would have been more prolly closer to $600US.

I just buy alot of stuff in general. Hats, shoes, beer, food, books. Have to pay bills.

But Toys, food, and music are what kill me. My credit card was payed off a month ago. Now its almost maxed out again. SO thats why Im not buying anymore toys starting with a month! lets see how it goes!

So far this year I have bought

AD-AT - 280 shipped
Bloody Horselington - 135 shipped
Bill McMullen Dunny - 35 shipped
JLED Bummer - 120, then sold

I did sell my complete mongerforce sarges set to make up. So substract 150 from the total for this year. Also the bummer shouldnt really count, since that was sold.

But whats coming next in the next month or two, will be close to a grand, I have my eyes on a Kaws Companion, and black and og possesseds.

I've been collecting for about 3 years now and find I go through spurts. One month i'll drop around 200 but then go dry for a few months. A buddy of mine who's heavy into Kaiju taught me to be picky when scooping up vinyl as it could easily get out of hand fast. Especially when it comes to smaller pieces like Dunny's. I really try to avoid those and gear towards bigger pieces like a Bigfoot or a King Ken.

Man I love being a vinyl collector though.
