    So how much time a day or a week do you spend on transformers related activities? And would you like to be able to spend more time or think you spend too much time on the plastic crack?

    Activities being, playing with the toys, trolling the forums, online shopping and searches, hunting in the car for toys, reading comics, admiring your collection...anything.

    I spend not nearly enough time as I would like.

    I used to spend a couple of hours a day on random things for Transformers, but now I am lucky if I can get in a solid 2 to 3 hours a week.

    Depends, really. If I'm having a busy week I might only get one hour which I'll usually spend looking at this board and plotting my next purchase. Average week, maybe four to six hours. Weeks with not so much to do, maybe anywhere from six to 12 hours.

    My goal - 27 hours a day. Mathematics be damned!!!!

    Too much time. I know I'm new to the board and all, but I need to get myself away from the computer and out to work. Showed up way too late today.

    Ebay:
    Lately, it's been two or three hours a week, spurred by watching choice items on eBay, trolling the boards, and comparing prices on items I'm talking myself into buying despite the Christmas season coming up (hey I've picked up some DVDs for other people too). It can extend into four or five if I find anything I like or find any relevant information regarding the upcoming sequel.

    Lots of my free time is spent online (here and a small bulletin board and I do online shopping), and I fiddle with my TFs and take photos of them. Though I don't play games or watch TV much at all, so I still have time to eat, sleep and talk to my family :p

    Maybe an hour or so a day. Sometimes more, sometimes not at all. It's hard to say. It's in spurts. 5 minutes here, 10 minutes there. I spent an hour with my club Seacons I got the other night.

    Thinking about it? Lots. Actively engaging in part of the hobby - a few hours a week, but I do have to balance it with work, a wife, a toddler and a 1 month old. Plus all the other "grown up" stuff too :wink:
