    I smuggle nothing either because my wife is okay with my collecting. I don't go overboard, even though I have a lot of figures. Now I'll really have to curtail my collecting because of a new car I have.

    Heh. Liz bought me more toys when I was in Sacramento for Xmas than I did! She's totally cool about my collecting; she even made me promise never to sell any of my collection. I am SO marrying her. :)

    $150 mp prime trailer. got it shipped to my dad's house 1100 miles away. my first big, single purchase in a while. funny thing is, I could buy 2 binaltechs, which would cost almost as much, and she wouldn't bat an eye. apparently when all of my debt is gone, which should be in the fall, I'm cleared to purchase...wait for it...an OVERLORD!!!

    :lol  this thread is pretty funny.

    My buddy Chris was bitten by the TFC bug in August. Since then, he's been hiding figures in the back of his car and garage ... just waiting for the moment to sneak them into the house. At first, he'd re-arrange the collection, that way, wifey would never see a new figure, just a new setup ... but then the setup got awfully chubby.

    My wife controls the cash so there is no getting them before she notices unless I happen to have some cash on hand (not very often). If I have some cash, she doesn't care. Generally, when we are out shopping and I see something, I grab it and put it in the cart. She's cool with my collecting. She knows that I have a list of all of the figures I want through the rest of the line and I only rarely buy something that is not on the list.

    My wife and I have a system. She's bought me I don't know how many toys. Probably as many as I've bought myself. But, on occassion, I'll have a box waiting when I get home, or be carrying a bag when I get home. She says, "What's in the bag/box?"

    I say, "toys."

    She goes, "OK."

    And that's that. I pack them into the toy-room/dungeon, and they're never heard from again. If I had them strewn about the house, then it might be a problem.

    I think my highest/lowest point was convincing the wife that the Predaking re-issue I got was from a HLJ "contest" that I won.

    Other than that, I just tell her that my boxes are full of eBay stuff and she lets it slide. Of course, there was that time when I bought the entire first wave of Cybertron...left them in the garage till she fell asleep and then went on a 2 hour toy-opening orgy. :D

    rearrange toy shelf to disguise addition; check.

    sneaking into garage/toy room to unpack new purchases; check.

    impromtu excursions/toy runs while wifey's occupied; check.

    i love you guys.

    seriously, i only ever sneak in the big ones. stuff like alts, while sizeable, i bring em in 'over the counter'. i just tell the old ball and chain 'hey, its less than 25 bucks. no biggie'. i have so far managed to sneak sky lynx, jetfire, metroplex. there was no way i couldve snuck in fort max. and i got busted with my boxed trypticon.

    the drama keeps the flame alive.

    Try sneaking in 2 Star Wars Force FX lightsabers. That's taking your life into your own hands right there...
