    Just curious. On average per month how much do you all spend on transformer toys. I just added up my July month and ive spent about 800 dollars. This isnt my average month I kind of went overboard with the ROTF line. I got all the Leaders, Voyagers, Deluxes, Scouts, Human Alliance, and Supreme Devastator this month except the new waves which I havent found yet.
    On average id prolly spend about 200-300. Just curious what everyone else is doing.

    It used to be around $150 a month, but now it is a lot less. I've probably spent about $250 in the last three months.

    Of the £250 I get from my weekend job (thus is my lot while at uni), £100 goes on car insurance, £30 on my BlackBerry contract, £50 on food, fuel and other sundries, and £70 on TFs. This month it's less as the car needs testing and what-not. However, I will make up for it next month -- I have at least £100 of overtime due.

    I just bought my first house so I'm having a hard time figuring out how much money I can spare. So if if anything maybe like 20 bucks a month =(

    Well, it all depends on what's being released at the time. When that final Animated line comes out, I'll end up spending between £100 to £200, but normally, it's about £100 a month, a few deluxes and maybe a voyager or two. I've had months where I haven't bought anything though, so I couldn't really give a solid number.

    It differs depending on how much money I have to spend and what is out, or what I can find, at the time.

    I believe I only spent about $12 on one deluxe for the last month. While the month before I probably spent a little over $100.

    I dont know, about 100 or 150 in the ROTF line. I buy when there is something new, so saying that I have a monthly budget would be a lie.

    yeah, maybe about 50-60 bucks a month if you average my habits for a year. I'm going to take a break from collecting for a bit however... I own all the G1 I love now!:thumbs2:

    My trouble is there's always something I want. Right now, when I have no money, there are numerous RotF toys (even though I'm mainly buying characters in the film -- Ransack was an uber-cool exception and Superion was too cool, too), and I really want Universe Tankor/Octane and Sideswipe. MOTs are displeasing.

    I normally spend 100-200, depending on what's out. Over the last few weeks, i ordered SDCC Soundwave and MM Prime -> 60bux, and when the FP stuff comes out, that's an easy $2xx.00.

    I'm also out trying to hunt down: HA Sideswipe and Target Bruticus. I got the icecream truck twins last week and i'm in the process of getting Universe 2.0 Vector Prime.

    So yeah, i spend wayyyy too much on this hobby.

    edit:
    Oh yeah I also forgot to mention that I don't drink a lot and my girlfriend is out of state, so that allows me to move my money around. But when she moves to GA next month for schooling, priorities will have to change tho.

    Usually 50-100. Depends on if I buy any Leaders. I mostly just buy Deluxes and Voyagers.
