Earlier this month, I acquired the last piece I needed to complete my vintage Transformers collection. I will still be collecting a limited number of new releases like Masterpiece and select 3rd Party items. I now want to focus the majority of my "Collecting funds" towards other aspects of my life. However, I am having a hard time with the slow down. I find myself wanting to start/continue other collections, namely vintage TMNT and NES stuff. I have enough discipline to not take the full plunge, but it doesn't come without significant effort. The fact is, I've been collecting various things my whole life, and I'm wondering if it will ever truly stop. That said, I'd now like to ask my fellow collectors a few questions concerning this: 1. Has collecting various items been a part of the majority of your life? 2. What else besides Transformers have you collected in the past? ...and how old were you during that time? 3. How hard would it be for you to stop collecting entirely? 4. Do you see yourself collecting various things for the rest of your life? 5. Based on the answers to the previous questions, what are your thoughts on your collecting habits?
