TFW's Just One More
Feel free to post stories about how you fell for the "just one more" temptation.
Mine was the movie line. I was ok with the designs, but didn't have any interest in the toy versions. Then I saw the Real Gears and they reminded me of the Microchange/early
toys, so I said I'd only buy them (but just the new molds). Then I started buying the deluxes, a couple here, a couple there. Then I thought "I have at least one Optimus and Megatron for every line I own..."
Cut to me buying Leader Op and Voyager Megs (still couldn't justify $40 on that design of Megs, even if the mold was better). Also have all of the Real Gear repaints to date (minus the last wave, which has yet to appear here). I have slowed down on the repaints from other lines, but the recent releases have me chomping at the bit again.
So far, Universe and Animated toys are the only things holding me back (besides my bills).
Heh, all of that has happened before to me.
One day, I was in a Walmart when they were having a clearance on transformers cybertron and classics toys (this was when the movie line just came out) and I was just going to get construction devastator ($20.00)but I was overwhelmed by how low the price was for a mini-con pack ($2.00)was so I grabbed it too but out of the 36 dollars I had, i wanted to save 20 dollars for the NFSC pc game.. so I walk away and see altenators ravange on the shelf
so I couldn't resist, so I grabbed him for 5 dollars and I passed the shelf again and see a classics ramjet so I grabbed it and head to the checkout and pay saying to myself that I just bought my last Transformer for the year and I forgot to get NFSC the Pc game but I have to pass the toy isle and saw Cybertron optimus primal for 7 dollars and I grabbed it and went to the check out and payed.
Next 2 weeks after I stopped by a Target and bought out the transformers isle even though I said I would skip the Movie line.
Then, just in Febuary, the Allspark powerline has came out here and I had the Target 2 bb pack and that was all I needed, so I had Barry, BB, and FB Jazz and I ended getting CJ and SB BB and last month I ended up buying all the repaints of BB, barry, and Jazz just because I just wanted ONE MORE.
Then Animated came out early and I got lockdown, ratchet, and prowl and now I want all the repaints of those guys because animated toys are so kool!
i'm worse with this on the boards more than anything, i'll ask about a couple figs, look over their list again and usually end up sending a message for "just one more"
I swore I would never buy a singe Animated toy....Now I have all of them except for BB and Lockdown
one thing i swore is, i would never get any of those flypaper graphics thing but i went out and bought two.
I swore not wacth animated I wacthd every episode at least 2 times
I swore no movie toys. Currently...I own G1ish Jazz, Robovision Optimus, Leader Optimus, Allspark Jazz/Brawl/Barricade, Wreckage, Arcee, Stockade, Landmine, Evac, Incinerator, Concept Bee, Best Buy Megs/Ratchet, Longarm, etc
I told myself over and over that I was going to focus exclusively on Animated. No Classics, no whatever else. But something in the back of my mind kept saying "you already have a complete Classics set, maybe you should keep going so you don't ruin it?" and "you're going to regret it later if you don't!"
I told myself I would at least slow down at one point when the movie came out I spent around $200 in one afternoon, be I have gotten better, I just buy one at a time, of course the figure I'm buying are going for $100 to $150
Given the recent news about characters in
, I'm going to have some serious deja vu next year.
i said cliffjumper was the last movie toy EVER yeah i failed
I said I wouldn't buy repaints but then I bought Skywarp and Elite Guard Bumblebe
The universe line is a curse, If you havent bought one, dont. Its more addicting than crack.
I bought a collection of
's and said that was all. Now I find myself itching for Omega Supreme and Fortress Maximus. The wife is starting to get a little exasperated at this. I think she thought the first purchase was going to be the last. So did I! I swear I will stop with the
's, and maybe some movie figs.
I told myself I would just buy Universe Ramjet, because I always wanted a Ramjet...
A year and 200 TFs later, with another Movie coming...I'm screwed
yeah this universe line is really bad for my bank account. it all started with that damn movie trailer back in '06. i thought to myself, hmm i would like to have one nice starscream toy to display on my computer desk. i eventually found classics starscream, and later found out about 20th anniversary dvd prime. and so on.
hello i just joined, but at the start of the movie line i said I'd only buy a few, Well i have a lot of movie Universe 2.0 and other things and i am hungry for more.
Im sorry if this is bad here but i said that was my last animated toy, i ended up getting one more but then its WAS truly my last animated toy (sentinel Prime being last)
Everyone! I have found a solution to stop yourself from buying transformers! Just get a loving partner to buy them for you, and you can walk away with the tattered remnants of your dignity
See, I give myself a list, tell myself that I'm only going to buy those guys on the list, NOTHING MORE... Then I go buy something completely random. I try to excuse myself saying, "fine, only this one time"... Then I do it again.
That's exactly How I ended up with
Voy Ironhide,Animated deluxe battle Damaged Prime/Megs two pack,and animated grimlock
I have all the movie figures from the first movie and I swore I would not buy a single figure from the
line, since I mainly collect Classics/Universe. But the other day I was at Target, and the Voyager Fallen figure just looked so badass, it's now sitting on my shelf. This is it, no more movie figures, I swear!
Hello all! I just joined the group today because I fit right in. I bought Animated Elite Guard BB after saying no way originally. Last week I got the
Voyager Prime repaint after reminding myself I skipped it the first time around because I has movie leader Prime. Can't wrap my head around whether I want the Wal-Mart exclusive jets either. I have the movie SS and TC plus it's the older mold, but I sure want as many of the seekers as possible. Ugh! Thanks for letting me join everyone!
Bought Bludgeon and Whril, yeah.... I thought they were cool...
and they are!
i havent bought a transformer in over 2 months man im goings crazy

Jolt suckered me in.
I've been in a philosophical discussion with myself. As most of you probably know, they released Superion and Bruticus overseas first, but they were in Classics Universe packaging. When they were released here in the United states, they were in the
packaging. Of course after much deliberation I bought them, but I have always kept wondering to myself, if they were released here in the US in Classics Universe packaging, would I have given it a second thought?

Leader Prime Damaged my wallet so badly it's still in the hospital.
Hi, I thought I'd skip animated, until I got blurr, then I delved into the show mythos and have gotten around 50 TFs since... Universe... tempts me... though I'm late to the line for availability, I am tempted by the ones I see in the store... so I guess that I do kinda fit under the third choice...

I was out getting a
for my girlfriend, only was supposed to spend money on her and the other members of my family...and I got myself a
So, is this meant as a confession spot or more?
I told my self I was going to get one PCC set and nothing more to do with PCC. A few month's later I was in Forbidden Planet, and purchased PCC Huffer w/ Caliburst, Searchlight w/ Backwind and Icepick w/ Chainclaw, my mind was split into the urge to want and the urge to resist. Obviously want won, and despite being ...well CRAP, I'm tempted to purchase more PCC toy's.
Why am I tempted to buy this trash?
Is this group still active?
