    August purchases. 22 figures. Good Lord last month set me back a bit. Thank God I've got September to recover and prepare for October.

    I love how the wide angle feature on the Note 10+ allows me to get a better picture of my entire display.

    It sucks that I have to make this post, but my collecting has to take an unfortunate pause. I have recently come to the realization that I was letting this hobby control my finances. My spending was getting out of control.

    Over the weekend, my girlfriend and I sat down and worked out a strict budget. And, as expected, this budget doesn't allow for rampant transformers purchases (I even had to cancel my preorder for the Amazon exclusive fan vote 3 pack - not happy about that). I canceled my Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime accounts to free up some money each month, so hopefully we don't get any more Prime exclusive figures.

    This isn't a Nazi budget, however. It may seem like it at first, but only for the first couple months. The goal of it is to get my paying for only the essentials each month (food, bills, etc.) and saving the rest. Once I've got a decent amount saved up, a window for about $20/week of personal spending opens up. This will be my transformers budget. Then, probably starting around the new year if things go right, I should finally have a comfortable enough buffer in both my checking and savings account that I can get back to collecting at a normal pace. But I will still have to be careful. Which means no more jumping on a figure as soon as it's released (unless it's an exclusive/limited run).

    I do have a few preorders spread out between now and next March that fortunately I can keep. So if I'm posting new figures soon, that's why.

    So as much as I hate to say it, I have to take a break. And that break may include some time away from TFW. Don't wanna to be drawn into something by temptation. Might stick around long enough for the WfC part 2 reveals, but probably won't be on much after that. So if you don't here from me anymore, so long. I'll be back someday.

    Man, I hear you! There have been two situations in my live as a collector where I had to pause for a moment and had to have an earnest look at my spending.

    That was the time I looked at my wishlists (one for HasTak, one for 3rd Party) and started to ask myself "What do I really want from this?" Especially in the last 2-3 years when we were hit by a flood of official and unofficial Powermaster or Jet Power Optimus Prime toys. It would be cool to earn them all, sure, but do I really want them? A lot of things went of the list.

    After that I took a second look at the remaining items on the list and came up with a plan for the next months...
    - When does item X get released? When does the next Wave of Siege come out?

    Going on with Siege as an example here...

    - How popular will the next Wave of Siege be? Is the entire Wave a hit or just 1-2 figures? Which one(s) are the hot wanted item(s)? Which one can I skip for now to get it at a sale? How big are the chances to find them at local retail anyway?

    It is tricky with 3rd Party items as well. "Is this gonna sell out immediatly or can I take another shot at it in like a few months?"

    Apparently reorganizing things is my way of dealing with stress and anxiety. So I spent all evening yesterday doing just that.

    Oh buddy! My first ever POL from BBTS is getting delivered tomorrow. To say I'm excited is an understatement.

    Got two of the three Powerdashers coming as well as Nightbird, so I'm looking forward to that. Also got the Dr. Wu Chromia kit for both her and Nightbird to share.
    IF Alkaid is coming. Just one more from that set to go.
    But the icing on this cake is the SND Primo X Mortis coming for my BC OP. I have been literally dreaming of putting this kit on and even though some people have told me it's a tough one I'm still excited.

    Oh, and I have CW Firefly and Airraid coming from Ebay. I wasn't originally gonna bother with completing Superion but I guess I am now.

    All in all I think I have 11 new items coming tomorrow. Sucks I'm working 2nd shift this week cause they're probably get delivered while I'm at work but that just means I'l have all morning Thursday. It's gonna feel like Christmas!

    Well I just spent two hours installing the SND kit on BC Prime. Might even post a video of the install. I would have taken some pictures if it weren't so late. But I gotta whole pile of loot to go through anyway so I'll get it tomorrow.

    Well no video of the SND install because of technical problems but here's a pic dump of all my new acquisitions.

    Did a little decepticon shelf cleaning and reorganizing yesterday.

    Also painted the combiner joint extensions for my Sky Reign.

    Autobot shelf got the cleaning and reorganizing treatment tonight. Though for them there was less reorganizing the figures themselves and more of simply switching the positions of each shelf.

    Unfortunately Verizon is being a real cunt tonight and not letting me upload the pictures, so I'll have to do that tomorrow.

    Finally got the pictures to upload.

    I think of this shelf as kind of my makeshift Lost Light shelf. Or perhaps an alternate universe Lost Light crew. I've got Rodimus, Chromedome, Rewind, Perceptor and Brainstorm, so I just pretend everyone else on the shelf was also there, even though they weren't.

    I think today after work I'll try to get some shots of the entire collection since its changed a good bit since the last time I took some.

    I also feel like now would be a good time to mention that my collection will be changing rooms within the next couple weeks. My girlfriend and I are currently working on repainting and recarpeting all the bedrooms in my house. My other spare room is already empty and getting new carpet next, so when it's time to repaint and carpet my collection room, it and my computer will be moving to the other spare room. Then they'll just stay there until it's time to sell the house.

    The outside shelves are starting to look a bit full, but I still don't think I have enough to put any on the middle shelves. I'm sure by the end of Earthrise I will, though. Hell I'll probably need to upgrade to taller ones by then.

    I think I mentioned this already but I expect to have my display moved to a new room before the end of the year. Just need to recarpet my other spare room so I can empty out this room to repaint and recarpet it as well.
