    The deep dark recesses of my brain.
    Picking and Choosing.

    I'm going from buying $6K worth of stuff last year to a planned budget of $4K. So for me it's a 33% decrease, but still alot of stuff...
    Move along, move along

    I cut my buying habits a lot in 2005 before ROTS hit so I don't see myself cutting back now. The new figures look good and with all of the new sculpts coming out this year I'm pretty excited. The extended lines may get boring to me. I'm already getting less excited about the Titanium lines. So those may fall to the wayside if anything.
    More is more. Less is less, Twice as much is good too,
    Too much is never enough except when it's just about right.

    I voted "Picking and Choosing."

    I will definitely be getting most of if not all of the basic action figures. I'm not real big into collecting vehicles and sets (because of their cost and the amount of space they take up) so I'll be leaving out quite a bit of merchandise. However, I'll still be spending a lot.

    Well first, I have scaled down dramacticly since I stopped beinga carded collector, also I no longer look for the variations. Right now I am only looking for the new ones like veers derlin and cody.

    I still army build a little, as I want at least 2-3 Cody's and about 6 of scorch.
    Looking for CW 2010 Sidious and TX-20...if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    I don't really buy that much as it is, so I'm not buying 75% or more.
    The Spudtrooper was the first SW toy I've bought since...probably the BK toys.

    Well, it changed a little but essentially stayed the overall same, the current results are split almost down the middle, with 53.5% collectors saying they're cutting down to half or less. I wonder how true this will hold in 6 months or so.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    If it's a repack I'm passing

    Barada...left him...I have him in the three pack.

    I may leave Reiken, Veers...although hes not "seeable" in the AT AT so I might buy him.

    No Kit Bash can keep your snowtrooper.

    I have to take it down a notch.

    I wouldnt leave Veers, although I have the AT-AT one, it is a much better sculpt, plus it has the armor. You can double him as an imperial officer as well.

    picking and choosing ...

    Now I'm only collecting ones that I like. Which means only a few of the basic size and all galactic heroes.

    I think it's more important to like something that to collect EVERYTHING.

    all the other lines of star wars stuff doesn't float my boat, even though some of it does look good.
