    After barely seeing a thing since summer, I’ve received all of the following in the last three weeks:
    MP Soundwave & cassettes reissue
    Planet X Asclepius
    TFC Deathclaw
    TFC Mentarazor
    TFM Carnage
    TFM Disorder
    Toyworld Attack
    Toyworld Combustor
    Toyworld Requiem

    I’ve also got the following in transit:
    Badcube Grump
    Badcube Slick
    Fans Hobby Archenemy

    And I fully expect to receive shipping notices for the following very soon:
    Badcube Speedbump
    MMC Artifex
    MMC Girder

    Also there’s a good chance that Gigapower’s metallic version of Grassor may make an appearance as well.

    Admittedly, some of these were released a while back, but I had them stacked up and only got them when the final item came in this month; but even without those, that’s eleven new releases this month... twelve if Grassor comes in.

    I can’t think of a single month since I started collecting when I was so inundated. Great times, but as the number of gaps in my collection dwindle, I can't help but feel a little sad that I'm very unlikely to see this happen again.

    If your gaps are dwindling, you aren't trying hard enough. Any time I feel like I'm getting close to being done, I decide to expand my horizons. I'll never be done.

    I've been feeling closer to "done" lately, and it's a relief to me!! LoL. I've expanded too many horizons. Once I get Kultur, I'll be about set for chug-ish Cons, and I always have too many Autobots. Then just a few MP releases, and only if the pricing calms down some.


    But for the OP - GREAT haul!! I had a crazy week last week, a bunch of random purchases all came in within 3 days. Will definitely miss that feeling of "zomg sooooo muuuuuuch stuuuuufffff!"

    Enjoy!!

    First Quarter 2017 is looking really nice for me as well. ARtifex, MP RiD Scourge, and that MP Bludgeon are already good enough for my budget.
