    Hey All,

    After going on a weekend binge and getting pretty much 90% of my "current" want list, I felt the guilt. Then I found another thread where someone spent a lot of money on a vintage G1 Japanese figure. So I felt ok about my plastic crack addiction.

    So, here is the guiltless, no judgement thread. So my question is, what is the most you have ever spent on TFs in one year?

    I'd say about $1,200 the year I bought my Liokaiser (he was $750 himself). To date this is the year I've spent the least amount of money on Transformers - $11 for Blurr and $17 for Sidearm. Woot.

    I kept track of my total spending last year for the most part and this year I plan on keeping a more precise journal of my spending. In total, I spent over $4000.

    I'd say roughly 2500 was the most I've spent. That was last year. I bought 3 botcon box sets with that. Don't intend to go over that mark much on a annual basis.

    I never go after expensive figures but I decided to throw caution to the wind last year and spent around US$400.00 getting the FP crossfire set and a very used Overlord at just the beginning of this year.

    Couple that with around US$400.00 in different piles of loot and I think I already spent this year's budget.

    We are, tell me about it. But this is a non judging thread. Therefore people coming here don't feel bad spending $500 in one weekend. Damn you FP, damn you and your awesomeness.

    It is nice to have a full crazy devy Devastator, FP Bruticus, FP Superion, FP City Commander, FP Protector and FP Warbot defender though. That wasn't in one weekend though. Between the MP and the FP stuff I bought recently, it makes up for like 75% of my total spent on TFs.

    The only customs I have are some crazy devy parts(missing head and waist) and FP Bruticus that was just too badass to ever miss. FP superion don't interest me also since I didn't like the superion set. BTW I'm glad I got bruticus add-on kit when they were released, the prices now have already nearly tripled on the aftermarket...

    Starting from the beginning of Generations/HftD I figure(pun intended) around $500-$600 for mainly those,tho I have spent maybe $150 to $200 for movie-esque figures.So probably a total of $700-$800.As for this year I may skip a lot of the movie figs,as they aren't eye popping like the previous movie toys,so to make up for those I plan to get lots of the generations figures however many they make.

    Well I got it at BBTS cost. I find the ROTF Bruticus is more expensive then the add ons.

    This year is going to be a slow year TF wise for me. I have spent about $120 so far on HFTD Starscream, United Tracks, United Jazz, and PE Ninja.

    I am getting MP Rodimus and the last couple of waves of Generation/ RTS deluxes amd then I guess I am pretty much done unless Takara or Hasbro release something of interest. I am okay with this though since Hot Toys will be releasing figures from Batman and Raiders of the lost Ark this year.

    USD $770 on the average (more or less every month) & it comes out to over USD $9000 in a year.

    I've got The Wifey watching me like a hawk these days... :p
