    12 pages of mouth watering Hauls ^


    This covers about 70% of my misc toy collection. Many lines like Brave , Star Wars etc were bought alone and put in their respective categories instead.




    Thought I'd post this since Im done with giant hauls.
    No more big spends for me. New priorities are real asskickers. (and too many frkn bills)

    Just going to concentrate on TF's now mainly and the occasional cool toy that I can't resist. Gone nuts over the past few years and need to chill out.
    Spent about 70 grand on toys . That's just insane!


    Now Im all about diapers, insurance, education etc... and more space for the kid. Going to save now for the little one and get into & support whatever hobby she get's into when she gets older.

    She's in G1 episode training now. hehe


    This thread is to show off my hauls mainly, but added the reason why incase anyone was wondering.


    (Much of this non TF stuff is for grabs btw. PM me if there's something you're interrested in.)

    Very impressive.

    We'll miss your hauls in Highs & Lows thread, but I wish all the best for your plans. Nappies (diapers) aren't cheap, are they :(

    So, non-TF things are up for grabs huh? Do you count the Macross stuff as "non-TF"? And how much for that chocolate bunny next to MP Prime? You better buy the XL diapers for yourself buddy.

    I know it's kinda personal, but what the hell kind of job do you have that allows you to spend 70 grand on toys? whatever it is, where do I apply? gotta give you props for slowing up to take care of the fam, and I've always admired the scope of your toy collecting. if it's cool, you've got it!

    Thanks. Ive lawnscaped & tree removed my ass off the past 15 years until I became part owner of the company (Natural Lawnscapes) We took care of the rich fockers that paid like 500$ a yard (crazy), so we milked that all we could (by mowing their yards twice a week ) We had the whole rich area to ourselves and the weekly pay was overwhelming.
    Everyone bought nice cars etc, but I threw everything in the bank, (still driving a cheap nissan pickup) all I cared about was the band I was in at the time and video games . Was making money just off interest alone. I was never good with weekly schedules from normal jobs. Cant wake up for crap. Which Is why I did so well there becasue my boss craig would bang on the door everymorning or come in and throw stuff on me

    He moved to Fla for chemlawn work in 99' (His dream was bush gardens) and the biz has been pretty loose since and we do mostly trees now since the out of towners kind of took all the lawnscaping jobs . Also did roofing for about a year with exgirlfriends dad and made about 8,000. Lived with mom until I was 25 and never bought anything but taco bell, beer & bass strings. Also had a second job (Falcon Aviation) working nights fueling , washing, painting and tugging small airplanes.
    Was great money but a larger airport bought us out. Most of us laid off. Was a year away from getting my pilots liscence as well. Boo on that
    Had atleast 15 jobs before I got into all that at Kmart, Krogers, Bode Finn, Publishers Printing etc

    Also got 20 grand from 2 deaths in the family, well 10g actually since I gave mom half for being super.

    Just recently I used about all the rest of my savings to cover someones ass that owed 22grand to the government over social security , and my savings are back at square 1 pretty much, and the weekly check barely covers the bills. These last 5 years have been pretty slow while my collecting habits have been outrageous.
    If you can climb & use a chainsaw then get your ass over here, we need atleast 2 more workers really bad, and atleast 1 ground guy for loading limbs and rope guiding. The hours have been crappy lately since I have to be home before jess gets up for her job so someone can watch the baby. Only get to do about half the jobs and all the new guys get my evening work. (then quit after a week)

    Trying to go back to college at the moment. In my life I probably made about 90,000 and most of it went to my plastic addiction. Which explains why Ive been obsessed with the TA over the years. Trying not to go back to driving forklifts & boom lifts


    The teens and 20's were save save save , then the late 20's hit, and spend spend spend! Was afraid Id save too much then end up getting hit by a car or something stupid :lol 


    btw Im down , but far from being out hehe



    *EDIT* ^ damn mr. rambles

    the beginning part sounded very much like what I saw on nantucket. I lived there for two summers working as a natualist for a nature center. the money on that island was insane, and I would see all the contractors/landscapists, and think "you go on wit yo bad self" because you knew they were raking in the dough from all the rich folks. my dad lives down in jacksonville, so I know how much people use landscaping down there as well. finally, the CM mystery is solved!

    Holy moly, thats a lot of stuff!

    Out of interest, I don't suppose you have any Centurions stuff lying around for sale?

    Nappies are expensive, get that baby potty trained pronto! For the first time ever the other day I had to buy some nappies (for a friends newborn) and while initially flummoxed by the variaty, I was astounded that you could buy nappies for 5 year olds...
