Well, here we go.
With the mass release of the 56 new figures for ROTS (plus 4 previews) we will see over the next 9 months or so the hunt will soon begin a new.
But this time I am considering giving up the hunt and waiting until they have all been released before buying a full set on Ebay or some other website.
Well, it comes down to a couple of things. Time, money, resources and enthusiasim.
I spend way too much time hunting down figures, after work, weekends, holidays. I spend too much money on gas driving all over the place for my little "toy runs". This leaves little time to actually enjoy my current collection.
I also find that my enthusiasim for the ROTS line is the lowest it has been in a long time. The only other line that sparked less interest for me was the soggy line.
Resources, as a MOMC collector who is trying to limit my PT loose collection, I am disappointed that the new stuff will not fit the Star Case. Thus forcing me to store the newer stuff in a safe place until the new protective cases come out and I can afford to buy the 60 or so new cases I will need to hold everything.
Other stuff! I have recently gotten into collecting the Kotobukiya and Gentle Giants stuff. With that said a considerable amount of time and money have gone towards hunting down what I want from those lines.
There will still be hunts, I will continue to look for the Unleashed line and from time to time a few other really cool items will no doubt surface that I will feel I have to have.
This will also give me time to thin out my now bloated collection. Which will in turn allow me to raise more funds for other Star Wars stuff.
I was wondering if anyone else has done this? I know that I have seem a lot of "comple sets" for sale on Ebay long after lines have died. I saw it with EP1 Flashbacks, SOTE, EU, EP1, POTF2 CommTech, POTJ, Saga, OTC, etc.
