    My two resolutions were;

    Keep TF spending under 500 USD
    Limit collection to only figures I knew or cared about.

    I did pretty ok with #1, my spending 465 USD.

    #2 was tough as there were those CW sets that I was tempted to get as their price kept falling. MP Inferno and MP Optimus Primal were great figures. After watching TF the movie 30th anniversary and season 3 of the cartoons, there were a few on my list I wanted to get. But ultimately I was able to keep myself off. Also it helped a bit that I had close to Zero interest in the Titans Returns or the RID lines. Only figures I got were Fortress Maximus, Astrotrain, Wheelie, Scourge and Blurr

    I did pretty darn well... considering I didn't make any resolutions for 2016.

    Winning.

    Never occurred to me to have TF resolutions. I can't even think of one for this coming year. There have been long periods where I wasn't interested in anything so I feel it evens out anyway.

    My resolution was the same as your first and I failed miserably. I really need to rein myself back in.

    mine wasn't so much of a Resolution but more of a goal, and I came damn close to completing it. I lost a lot of Instruction booklets and Cards during Sandy a few years ago, This year was a big year of getting closer to finishing up collecting my missing Instruction Booklets.......who the hell thought Instruction Booklets would be so damn hard to come across
