    1. The office you built for work is so packed with Transformers that you don't have any room left to work in there anymore.

    2. It takes you weeks to find a lost toy (in my case, Arms Micron Soundwave) in that room.

    3. When you finally find that lost toy, you come across another one you don't even remember buying (Botcon Gigatron).

    Ewww!

    Can't access drawers & closets. There's a trail that is outlined by Transformer boxes in your room. Forgetting transformers you have...

    You move to a new apartment and you spend more time moving your transformers than you do your kitchen or living room.

    ... consider moving to a new place to have more room for your collection.

    Just put some of my collection in the local fair today, and they gave me one of the larger display cases, and I could have filled it three times over. Really started thinking, I have way too much crap. Still have about 7-8 tubs of stuff that I couldn't fit in there, and I know my collection is a lot smaller than many people on here.

    - When you need a spreadsheet to remember all the stuff you have.
    - When can't store them properly anymore.
    - When your closet has more figures than clothes.
    - When your plastic bins are stacked almost reaching the ceiling.

    I've only got 3 out of 4 of these, so I'm ok, right? Of course as far as the one I'm missing, that closet has no clothes in it, just TFs.

    Then there are more TFs than clothes, as there are no clothes

    what's been mentioned in this thread is all so very, true. ;D
    yeah when you notice that you've stacked up boxes and boxes of toys...
    and your room resembles a warehouse for toys... :lol

    I'm only guilty on 2 out of the 4 :eek: . I moved into my fiancee's duplex and since there isn't really any room for me to display my figures, they all stay, for the most part, boxed in plastic bins in the basement. So far I've filled seven 35 L bins and I can easily fill another 1-2 :lol  :eek: 

    The spreadsheet is more of a cost tracking/figure count thing for me. Yes, I agree if you're struggling to make ends meet because of plastic toys, you need to re-evaluate some of your choices, but I don't think there's anything wrong with logging information on your collection. Besides, it gives me an easy, one stop shop for how many figures of each line or how many more I need to buy (I'm trying to finish up the Alternators line right now). And by using pivot tables, it makes navigating/manipulating the information super easy.
