I know. Another post Botcon thread. But I was looking through my stuff and thinking. Every year I go, I go through the arduous task of compiling a list of wants. I think of everything I would want to look for or possibly add to my collection. Then I look each item up on ebay, check out current and completed listings and get a price range for each item: loose, complete, MISB/MOSC. I then put it into a spreadsheet and print it out and bring it along. Each year I do this, and each year there is no point. I rarely even look at the list. I am like a kid in a candy store and start running at tables, arms flailing wildly, ginormous stupid grin on my face, all just lost in the moment of pure TF geekdom. I end up doing more impulsive spending, and sometimes I look at some things at a table and think "Well, for that price why not?". That is how this year started off for me. Ran right to the Hartman's table right when preview night opened. I was looking at getting some Headmasters, since I am a big fan. They still had plenty when I got into their store, but then I saw some G1 cassettes, complete, mint, with cardbacking...All for 30 dollars. Hell I couldn't pass that up! Sure G1 Highbrow was on my list, but for the price of that, I could get three sets of tapes! So I bought the three sets, and to add to the impulse buys I found a Micromaster set on the way to checkout for 5 bucks with card backing! All in all, in the very end, it turned out I got 4 things on the long list that I had made, and a majority of the stuff on the list (which was carried over from the list from last time) will be carried over to next year's list. Anyone else go through anything similar? Or am I the only one who is obnoxiously anal in preperation, then falls apart and gets taken by the moment when it arrives?
