    I'm a Alt/BT/MP/Classics/Henkei collector, and It would seem I've hit a collecting wall! I have pretty much have everything from the lines I like. I have pre-orders for the new BT's, Henkei's, and Classics 2.0. So with the exception of a few hard to find/expensive items, I have everything I need. However, I still I find myself reading the Junkion threads looking for things I don't really need. Which has driven me to realize that this really is an addiction! Is this normal? :) 

    Please excuse my ranting as I'm tired, and I don't have anything new to open.

    I hope it's normal, or else I'd have to commit myself. I'm a very picky buyer when it comes to TFs, because I just don't think the quality is there. I basically bought all the movie line then sold 90% of it because I didn't like them after a month. Going forward, I have absolutely 0 interest in the Animated line, and very little interest in the upcoming Universe line. So basically I've been doing the same thing as you, searching the threads, going online. I have bought a couple items I now regret. I basically bought them to fulfill my addiction, but like all addictions, scoring secondary stuff just ain't the same. I need my crack!

    I was done with the movie, I stopped buying for a little bit but then I found a Animated Bumblebee for my son for a deal, and thought what the heck, got cybertron Prime and Deluxe Megs too.

    Now after getting a few more I find myself kinda bored. I still love all my TFs but not going to pay outrageous prices for the ones I really want, and seeing alot of the same figures for the past year at the stores(the new wal-mart just built stocked I swear some wave 1 releases of movie) kinda kills my enthusiasm for now.

    Will I hit animated hard, yes, but until then I think my funds will go elsewhere

    It's not normal believe me. I had that same feeling too that I need to collect almost everything and then it hit me.... now I only collect toys I like and I usually chase girls this time. Hope you get through your "addiction"

    I'm saving up right now. I feel guilty as hell cuz I got blitzwing and grimlock for 100 each, then I pre-ordered the henkei TC/SW set, plus I won an energon lot of wheeljack( i forget the name), Energon megatron, landmine, landquake and the reiussue takara megatron for 50 bucks. plus I have wave 1 ordered from HTS for animated with all of the voyagers too. So yea....I've gotta save up I'm starting to have more of the "quality vs. quantity" policy.

    ive been having the same problem. i agree there are some upcoming figures im not looking forward to, as well as a lot that i am. ive found myself spending ridiclous prices for the botcon classics figures and scooping up lots of crappy destroyed bots on ebay but i know when i get this stuff in the mail finally im not going to keep it. i just get them because im bored...
