    I'm talkin bout the longest period of time you've ever gone without buying a TF. I was going crazy, waiting for StormBombshell to ship, when i looked at my TFs and the BBTS shipping stuff and realized-I haven't bought a new Transformer in 6 WEEKS. Realized this and started twitching lol. Now I reeeeeeally need a fix lol, the Kre-Os I've bought during that time just aren't cuttin it (They don't count lol)

    So what's yours?

    The last Transformer I bought was in early August, not planning on picking up any more until December.

    I tapped out early on Energon figures and didn't buy anything else until well into Cybertron -- lasted about a year that I didn't buy any Transformers.

    I can't remember the last Transformer I bought. I think it was one of the SDCC exclusives. Since then I have been spending funds on Masters of the Universe Classics. Pretty up to datw on the ones I want in that line now.

    Merging posts here

    Something like 1 and 1/2 years between a ROTF Optimus Prime in June or July 2009 and ROTF LDR Jetfire in November 2010 or if you want to get technical, you could consider the 4 year period between my birth and when I got my first toy a drought.

    The last official thing I bought was probably the Warpath case from BBTS or MP Rodimus... Not sure what came out last.

    Unofficial figures were Exgraver and the first insecticon..

    I'm more selective now. Only collect classics and MP figures. So I can be patient now... and actually welcome breaks from TF collecting. There's an avalanche of 3rd party products coming... Need to prepare for that.

    Do you really need toys for your enjoyment? Look, my point is, you have a problem and you don't wan't to fix it even if you should.

    I didn't buy TFs for a while earlier this year.

    And official toys are on a drought for me right now (last official one I bought was HA Jazz like 3 weeks ago). But I'm still buying a lot of 3rd party stuff.

    Can't you do something else in life besides collecting toys, living off whatever your parents make and just sitting there in your house.

    I don't know if this helps but read this:
    Overcoming Shopaholic Addiction
    Anyway, I'm done. If you want to discuss this, do it with PMing.
