I do it quite often, usually to save on postage as distribution is so erratic in the UK. I'll quite often buy cases at a time and sell off the doubles.
My feedback.

I did that at Botcon, haha. Luckily I was crazy ill and couldn't eat, which gave me even more money for plastic crack.
Haha, I may have a problem.

When I buy lots of them at a time, it's cause I found a "lot" of transformers on CL for cheap or fairly cheap... other than that, it's a calculated and well researched purchase. I don't make a crap load of money and have 3 kids and a wife that acts like a college student who spends money and parties on the regular so I really don't have money to splurge. Everything has to be calculated...

The figures I got were FE Starscream, PRID Megatron and Ratchet, SG Drift, SG Soundwave, and Alternity Megatron.

So what's your opinion? Splurging good or bad?
I splurge on a weekly basis. And regret it on a weekly basis.

I was spending $20k a month on Transformers alone for 6 months straight until I got everything I wanted.

It sure as hell took a toll on the amount of free space I have in my house.

I kind of wish I could go back and slowed it down a bit. Buying everything up quick takes the fun out of this hobby.
