"catching up" is the worst part of collecting. haha. maybe not bad for some people. it just depends how much catching up you wanna do.

i lose like $20 a month ~ after all the selling, trading, and buying.

That use to be me....now it prob averages out at $200 a month and in reality that's commissioning artwork or buying at a show every few months that costs a fair bit rather than a lot of things.

I have like 3,000 toys in my room, in boxes, and in storage. Most of these are action figures so I'd put my total spent in the tens of thousands.

Vinyl hit me hard and within a year I had spent a lot. I have no idea how much total but its in the thousands.

Most I have spent on something would be $250 for each Deph 8" followed by $120.00 for two 3" Deph's. Vinyl is horrible because it gateways me into other artists or into Art and prints which recently has been where most of my money goes. Plus framing is a HUGE racket.

I love making $600 payments on my credit cards and the next month when I look at my balance it hasn't moved at all.

Enough For My Parents To Always Look At My Collection And Ask How Much Was That? Where And When Did You Get That?

My Whole Collection Is A Little Over $1,000. The Most I Spent On A Toy (Not Blind Box Cases) Was $90? I Think.

at this point now after collecting for almost 2 years. I would say I have spent close to $10,000 plus. Scary when I also collect NASCAR Die-Cast cars.

No idea how much more I will keep spending... lol I shudder at the thought of it. lol

It's been averaging $300/month, bad months are when things like Ringo come out.
:sigh: I am supposed to be paying off 2 credit cards so I can get a Mustang or an Elise (different reasons for both, haven't decided on either)...
Toys or new car, toys or new car...well, at least I'm not a completist. ](*,)
