I feel like in the past few months, the joy in collecting has diminished somewhat. I still enjoy it, however the glee upon obtaining a figure has changed into a sensation of cracking it open and sitting it on the shelf. That instant gratifcation that only lasts for that day, and at worst, a few minutes to a few hours. So what I'm planning on doing is creating a POL for myself. Not online, but whenever I get a figure, I'm going to leave it MOSB/MOSC until a given date, and then at one point either open the entire haul or just pieces of it. My "Date" at this point is looking like my Birthday (The end of may, or just after the first few waves of DOTM toys come out). During that time I also plan on shelving most of my figs to attempt to keep them off my mind, until the time comes for them to be nostalgic and fresh when I take them out of storage. I imagine this won't be much longer than my haul date. Anyone else feeling the anxiety? Agree with me? Disagree? Do you do the same, or something similar with your figures? Discuss.
