    One of my friends asked me if I wanted to rent his extra room. It's near the beach, in a really nice neighborhood for 600 a month. The room is tiny. But of course, I don't need much stuff to fill it with. With the exception of my Inhumanoid figures and a few vehicles. I don't want to bring a ton of stuff with me. He lives in a really nice neighborhood with lots of night clubs, bookstores, organic food stores, clothing boutiques, and restaurants. Not to mention, I am in the middle of looking for a new job and doing some important legal stuff. Toys are the last thing on my mind. I didn't even buy anything at Wondercon due to sheer boredom with the fantasy stuff.

    Over the last few years, I've lost interest in collecting. I still am buying figures, but I think I only bought two DOTM figures(Shockblast & Crankcase). I purchased a few Iron Man figures. But I really think how am I gonna load all these across the bay? I don't even drive. I'd rather bring my desk and my huge collection of clothes.

    But toys.... why would I bring those? I'd rather sell most of them and keep the profits for rent and the other stuff I am into. Then store the rest here. But I am more concerned about connecting with other humans than their plastic representations.

    Okay, cool, if you're not into it anymore, stop collecting or dial it back. It's a hobby, something that's supposed to make you happy, and something that you're likely paying a significant amount of money or time to do. So if it doesn't have a place in your life anymore, why would you keep it up?

    If you enjoy it, keep going. If you don't, stop.

    Did I oversimplify that?

    I like some of the figures here and there. But really, I could get a new brush set or something. I don't really drink or do drugs anymore. I stopped cocaine years ago.

    Toy addiction was pretty bad. But still gonna buy more decepticons when they get cool again. I can't justify dropping 40+ on a single figure though.

    Transformers and porno...well that works. Except I think I already saw some transformer porno, the "girl" looked like a horse on its way to the glue factory.

    Keep the Inhumanoids, those were the shit.

    Woud store it all and let it double as either your collection, or an emergency funding center lol
    Sitting on toys is like having stocks.
