    So who do you want right this second that you haven't picked up ? For me its a toss up between Prime Arcee and the new Sky Shadow. I really didn't want the jet till I saw the paint apps. Man, he's slick.

    Honestly, I've just about scored everything on my immediate "wants" except for ROTF Lockdown & possible the Generations Sky Shadow, and I'm in no rush to pay more than bottom dollar for either.

    My light wallet (it's actually heavy as fuck right now with change & other junk, but you get the idea) has made me quite good in the self control department. At this point, I know that they're just figures, that they're not going anywhere, and that I'll be able to find a really good deal/sale/etc if I'm willing to be patient.

    I have everything I can possibly obtain right now.

    My current wants that are either close to release or just haven't hit my retail.

    -Voyager Prime and Bulkhead, and CJ and Eradicons which I assume will be out before Christmas.
    -Junkheap x 5.
    -Hercules
    -MT Trailer

    I think thats pretty much it that is due out by years end.

    Well if we're counting unreleased shit, then I'd bite on the Eradicaon too, not to mention that HA Soundwave. I really am close to be totally satisfied though, and it's a strange feeling...

    Heavy Labor from TFC. I'm pretty sure thats the only thing out there now I'm looking for that I can pick up easily but don't have yet. It'll be a post-Christmas buy most likely.

    There are things I want to have. There are nothing I "HAVE" to have that I don't have.

    Junkheap. Need to make it out to a store and find that sucker.

    I intend on collecting some Prime figures, but I can (and should) wait until next year for them.

    Black effing Shadow. Space Gangster. Come on.

    Also, TFP Arcee.

    I think my fiancee's choice is Junkheap. She seems to want Wreck-Gar to have a buddy more than I do.

    psssst. Keep your fiance away from the Maiden Japan add ons. They are awesome and offer up many friends for Wreck Gar and co.

    But seriously, those MJ add ons are nothing short of a wonder.

    I've told her about them, but I haven't shown them to her yet. Though, with the random Wreck-Gars popping up at Ross and Marshall's here, it might be high time to invest. I figured it would either be the Maiden Japan add-ons, or the iGear Kup head, that would be my first 3rd-party purchase.

    Let me welcome you to the 3rd party world with a piece of advice.

    You know how when you started collecting TFs it was just that one figure? Look how many you own now.

    Same thing with 3rd party, once you pop that cherry you go from virgin to pro just like that.

    My advice, if the MJ sets are in your sights, is get those first. These are a "garage kit" set and by that nature are much more limited. That and if you think the pics are nice, wait until you see them in hand. WOW!

    Good luck and I hope to see you join our crazy world of 3rd party goods soon :)

    Skyshadow and Junkheap.

    Mainly becasue they've been released to retail and i'm wondering why the *expletive deleted* BBTS don't have them yet?

    Heheh, thankfully I have a limiter on that - I don't have enough cash flow to justify many 3rd-party products. Besides, I have a friend who gets a lot of them, so I can see them in-hand before I decide if I want any, and I've come to the decision that I like add-ons more than full figures (not to discount the full figures; they just don't appeal to me quite as much).

    Besides, I'm almost at the 200 mark with my collection. I'd rather not get to that stage with 3rd-party stuff - I'd be broke! :lol
