    Ebay is a wonderful place, but when shipping costs just as much or half as much as the figure itself in most cases (at least when it comes to Deluxes and Voyagers, it's a bit of a pain.

    But since older lines are impossible to find in stores, buying online is really the only solution.

    Yep, my ebay purchasing frequency certainly hasn't lessened as the movie line has become recycled and stale.

    I have a list. If it isn't on the list, I don't buy it. I still go out to see if I can get stuff on the list, but I hardly ever find anything.

    I am having fun playing catch up with older lines, though. Just recently got 6 Energon figures with 1 more on the way, an Armada fig is on the way, and I'd like to get a RID Scourge/CR Black Convoy here soon (damn thread about it)

    I also got an Animated Starscream and I might get an Animated BB just because they're cheap.

    I recently added the deluxe autobot vehicles; Whirl and Roadbuster. Also I've been hunting down parts to complete sets like the fist and foot for computron and devastators right wrist.
