    A reply in the last thread I started inspired this.

    What will you buy (or did you buy) with your free government money?

    For me:
    Wing Blade
    Real gear Photon
    Devestation TpB

    And I'll be buyin these guys off of Lumpy:
    Henkai Astrotrain
    Classics Tank Megatron
    Armada Comettor

    and on the non TF side :
    A night with the girlfriend
    Stupid bills

    What will you be pickin up? Some older bots you've missed? Save for animated and universe? Or silly things like rent and car payments :)

    dunno. I don't have much TF-related plans for my stimulus check, at least not at the moment.

    The remainder of the bill for a new macbook pro (the rest is being paid for by the GF's school - yoink!), which should be 200-something. If there is anything left, grab some ram.

    Oh wait, was I supposed to say Blitzwing or Grimlock or something? ;) 

    I'm gonna preorder Leader Bulkhead next month, so maybe some of the check will pay for that (better?).

    Dammit, I get nothing.

    Oh well. Three years in a row I've paid no state or federal income tax, and it'll probably end up being five come April '10. So I can't really complain.

    I'm getting some new rims and tires for my girlfriends ATV with my stimulus check.

    I already spent my federal tax refund on mostly TF's, so it's only fair I spread the wealth :thumbs2:

    I'm saving half and spending the other half on Animated. What's left will buy a few G.I. Joe's. That's the plan at least. I will probably have spent the whole thing or close to it by the end of the year with all the cool Transformers and Joe's coming out.

    If I pay off my bills before the check arrives it'll go into savings for a few animated figs I want, and Universe 2.0.

    It will be saved for the end of the year when they take it back out from my taxes. It isn't free.

    What isn't free? The stimulus check isn't taxable, it's a tax credit. It's not considered income. Unless you have some kind of special filing reasons etc...
