Ok, very long story short. Over 2 years ago, I lost almost everything I had collection wise and basically had to start over. Flash forward to today: I have done pretty well rebuilding my collection, starting with Animated, ROTF, and Universe 2.0, sprinkling in some Encore, Botcon, Alternators, Masterpieces, and TRU G1 Re-Issues. This morning, after a fellow board member pointed me to a local WM that had the new Legends Devastator, I go to pick one up, and had an "epiphany" if you will and wanted fellow TF fans inputs. Now I have the DVDs, I read the IDW comics, get the trades of the Marvel and Dreamwave stuff, etc, so I think I am a good fan and collector. But this morning, as I stood there looking at the Legends Devastator, my mind started working overtime. I live with my fiance, and we have a good house, and we both understand each others quirks and hobbies, mine being Transformers, comics, etc; hers being her horse; and we both have a passion for Disney stuff. And as we share more with each other, we understand and appreciate each other's passions so any decision made about my collection is prompted by my own thoughts alone, not nagging from my SO. Well, as I stand there in Walmart, I was thinking, do I really need another item that all I will do is leave in it's package and put away for a collection that maybe 10-15% is actually on display! Cause it is, I have my G1 Re-Issues, Encores, Masterpieces, and assorted characters from Universe and Animated opened and on the shelves in our den, but most of it is in Tupperwares put away in a closet, still sealed in their original packages. Now, our wedding is October, and I am in the process of paying for a honeymoon as well as part of the wedding, so my questions stem from this: 1) Is it time to stop collecting everything and maybe start focusing on specific characters or sublines? 2) Should I thin my collection out to not only save room, but maybe help pay for the honeymoon? 3) Should I stop collecting all together, sell what I have (or keep it) and just grab that random figure that really really speaks to me, like Masterpieces, etc? 4) I had always been a MISB/MOSC collector, but if I am not willing to open it and display it, is it even worth buying just to be put in a Tupperware in the closet just so I can say I own that? (and just so there is no confusion, there are no children to pass them down to later on sort of thing) Please Help!!!!
