    So like a lot of you on here, I keep a detailed list (in the form of a database) of my collection for inventory and for my own OCD tendencies. I usually update it as soon as I get home from the store with a figure or right after I open the package from the mailman, but I've been sorting through a large lot a recently purchased to see what I was keeping/selling.

    Finally got around to put the figures I'm keeping into my list and...*BOOM* G1 Wheeljack was number 1000. :D  I still have quite a few to enter but I just happened to look down and see that he was the 1000th record.

    Now back to work, just thought I'd share...it is kind of a milestone that I've been looking forward to and didn't think I'd actually notice who number 1000 was.

    niiiiiice. I'm getting there slowly. probably by the end of 2011/mid 2012 I'll be there. I'm thinking dark of the moon figures will be worth a solid 20 figures in that count, and we're getting so many awesome generations/rts figures, that I find myself updating my list like 5 at a time now.

    LMAO :lolol 

    I wasn't really 'shooting' for it but I knew the mark was coming up, I totally missed my 500 mark; I just looked down one day and I was close to 600. It was kinda cool to know who exactly was my 1k-th

    Congrats, dude!

    20th Anniversary DVD Prime was my 200th figure. I'm up to the 490s now and want to make sure something equally special is my 500th.

    Rock out with your clock out.

    My last laptop borked in January, and just this weekend I pulled my files off of it. I have everything I bought since January to add to that list, and I also have to update the values since some of that stuff has changed value. And pull down everything I've sold.

    Then I can update my financial software to inflate my net worth. :lol

    for the people that keep spreadsheets - Do you have a column for how much you spent on each figure including taxes.

    I would be interested in finding out how much actually money I have spend on TF's over the years.

    I have a excel file with all bots and if they are mib, moc or mosc, insert bubbles and so on.

    I will never reach 1k, because there is not that many G1. ( micromasters is crap, so is pretender and action masters)

    It took me two and a half years just to get up to 211. I will probably have 300 by the beginning of 2012.

    Congratulations! I hope my plastic crack collection tops 1,000. As is, I have ... I dunno.

    Wait, I live in a tiny ass shack, no room for 1,000 toys ... I hope you enjoy yours.

    I'm one away from 100. It would've been so awesome to be able to say Cybertron Backstop was the definitive point of my collecting.

    Nice -- congrats!

    As I go on, I find that my accumulation rate seems to be increasing exponentially. My collection as a child reached 68, I think. I picked up collecting them again in late 1999. One of the early Alts (Sideswipe, I think, so early 2004) was number 500. Now I'll be hitting 2000 in the next month or two. :eek: 

    :lolol

    Cool. I'm somewhere in the 800s. I keep a spreadsheet too, and I tabulate everything on different spreadsheets for overall total, total by character and total by line (I'm a bit obsessive-compulsive too). Even if/when I make runs at some of the odds and ends items I feel like picking up and counting preorders, I still have a little while to go before I crack the one thousand barrier.
