    I have spent over $500 in the last month on Transformers. This is getting ridiculous, I blame this site for my condition. $20 here and there REALLY adds up. My girlfriend keeps making comments about how I have a bunch of Transformers coming in but still no engagement ring... :lol  I don't know how much longer I can put it off. :D

    muahahahahaha.

    in my eHobby / TFC "catch up*" phase, I was pooping $500 bills.




    * I started with TFC18 and that's it. I had to go backwards for a few months.

    Dude, I had the same problem too until I realised that no matter how cool toys are (and I think I can safely say that I have a couple of cool toys), they can't be compared to your loved ones...go get the that ring! :D

    Tell that to ALT Ravage, Rumble, and classic Devistator

    Yeah, I should probably get that ring, no matter how cool all my transformers are, they could never provide the "benefits" that a good looking woman can. ;) 


    Although sometime optimus prime does look rather sexy...

    Also, remember that Transformers are disposable income as well. If worse comes to worst, you can always sell what you have, use the money for other stuff (like engagement rings) and re-collect your favorites at a later date. Tying yourself to your transformers is not half as important as honoring your girl with something sparkly. :)

    I'd rather just use buying transformers as an excuse to buy me some more time. :lol

    Tell me about it. After I buy this KO Shockwave (which is way cooler looking than the Purple one) and the Titanium 6' UM I'm not going to buy one for a while. I'll be around $450 in the hole like you my friend. This classics line definitely made me a collector, and a kid, again.

    PS; if Hasbro was smart they'd capitalize on this buy making an Arcee engagement ring. What girl (or fanboy) wouldnt love one of those?

    Only problem with that is that sooner or later you'll end up with all the time in the world... ;)

    Heh. My girl. She likes my TFs just fine (and collects toys too), but hates Arcee. Hell, we almost had a custom ring made for her that was gonna be TF-themed, but went with another cool design instead. I agree with her. Arcee is indeed lame. Now, a Prime ring...

    Naaaaah... engagement rings are nice, but has she stopped shopping for herself and saved up all her disposable dollars for a fancy ring for you? End economic sexism! If you're gonna quit spending on your hobby for the sake of your new life together, spend those dollars on something for you both... like a house! :) 

    On the other hand... $500 in one month? I'm starting to feel a bit better about my own plastic crack habit. ;)

    Meh,

    Ive been married, divorced, had several girlfriends and may end up marrying my current one but the same and awesome transformers I've always had have been there thru it all with me and cheering me up when I needed it.....
