    Since you started collecting, how much money have you invested in buying transformers?

    Def. a minimum of $500, maybe a thousand. Funny thing is, most of my TF's weren't bought at retail prices or were freebies (gifts/lucky finds).

    Does the amount you get for selling stuff get subtracted from the total or are we talking about total amount of $$ anyway?

    I've bought lots of TFs over the years, but most are sold off and have funded my newer purchases.

    Judging from what I have at home ATM, I'm guessing a good 700-1000 USD, including all shipping costs.

    Probably around a grand, but that doesn't include what my parents got me growing up.

    This. Anyway, if I had the money instead of The Transformers collection, my life would have been less interesting and happy. I can't even think what my life would have been like without Transformers.

    I am not sure. I know it is a good amount but I never put too much thought into it.
