    This is something I've been thinking about lately.


    Was moving around a bunch of stuff earlier & found that there's DUST collecting on virtually all of my TF shelves.

    It seems like lately I've been buying stuff just for the sake of collecting & not because its something I'd actually enjoy.

    That has to change.

    Whenever I have time, which is not often. The problem for me is I keep my toys in storage since I don't have space to display them, which makes it a hassle to pull them out and then put them back once I'm done.

    Everyday I play with a toy, not always a Transformer, sometimes a gundam or whatnot, but still, my toys get used a decent amount.

    All the time. I even occasionally make those silly 'WHOOSH!' and 'Zing, Zing, KAPOW!' sounds, too. :eek:

    Usually, everyday, I just pick a random tf or something else and play with it.

    However, it also depends on what you mean by play. Whenever I play with a toy, I pose it, transform it a couple times, maybe take some pictures, and then put it back on the shelf. I don't go "BUMBUBEE TO DA RESQU!" and have Bumblebee drive over Barricade.

    A lot.

    Not like "pew pew pew, argh my leg, splosions!" type play, but nobody out of a display case stays still for long.

    Almost none of my figures are on display (the few that are are in a closet with the doors closed most of the time, so dust isn't an issue), so if they're at hand, they're probably getting played with or have been played with recently.

    I don't do dialogue or make "pew, pew" noises, but does constantly changing up poses on your figures on display, count as playing? If so, then at least several times a week.

    Neva. But I'm not against it.

    Actually, when I got the G.I.Joe Cobra Firebat...

    so, I guess once in a long while :p

    I'll sometimes sit around on my bed with a few figures having them battle. All sound effects and or dialogue is in my head, though.

    If this counts then sometimes because often. I like to keep one shelf spare so I can pose a few toys on it, and tend to change those getting posed every couple of days or so.
