    2012 Sales round up, how much did you buy?

    I was just going over my receipt list where I catalog what I spend on toys throughout the year. Can anyone say OCD? Well I found that I purchased approximately 89 items from Matty..or through a friend from Matty. Including shipping and taxes that comes to about $2500 this year. I really like the toys and will gladly spend this much next year if the product is available. So what does your haul look like this year for the MOTUC brand?

    Edit: Title should read 2012..can a mod fix this for me??

    My first year so...

    58 MOTUC items plus a sub for '13 & Castle Grayskull.

    I also dabbled in DCUC, Marvel Select, Doctor Who, Character Building (like lego), 90's X-Men & Fantastic Four, Danger Girl, Trash Pack, Monster High, Marvel Legends, DC Direct...and I think thats it lol.

    Forecast for next year still playing catch up in MOTUC, new Watchmen sub, Power Lords reveal, more dabbling in randomness.

    After doing some calculations, I just found out that I've spent just about $2000 on MOTUC this year alone, that includes also the comics from DC!
    Man that's a little depressing to know, especially knowing where the line is headed...

    I refuse to do this, as the end result would easily derail my MOTUC collecting habit. It's just best NOT to know...

    I'm only 20 figures shy of completing the main collection (not including SDCC variants like color-changing Orko, etc) and I only started about half a year ago. I won't even try to figure out the cost.

    Holy smokes! You are so right....... I hate thinking about how much money I fork over to Mattel, BBTS, eBay, etc...

    I'd rather not have that heart-attack!

    I Just decided to start a collection this past Black Friday, so my 2012 was $235 for the 10 figures I've bought off Matty Collector, TOys r Us and a collector selling off some of his pieces.

    Think about some of the things other people spend their money on; you'll feel better. For example, I think about how much someone who smokes spends on cigarettes here in Michigan ($5-8 a pack), and my hobby is pretty darn cheap, and the toys are still there even when I'm done with them.

    Well, without getting into finances, and I too keep all the shipping invoices and catalog how much was spent....Why? I don't know, I just like keeping record of how long I had a particular collection piece....

    From Matty....
    2011's BGEL & Demo Man!!!!! since I got billed for them in 2012....

    15 2012 regular figures

    2 30th figures

    1 Weapons Pack

    3 NOS (new old stock) figures I needed from DOS

    3 extra 2012 figures for customs or for MOSC

    2 regular NOS figures I needed & Marlena from BF/CM

    And Granamyr, of which I am currently awaiting arrival....



    From BBTS....
    2 regular figures

    I'm a brand new MOTUC collector. Just started in November. I have about 22 figures, 2 monsters, 4 Beasts (Granamyr included) and I pre-ordered Castle Grayskull.

    I was only able to get a few figures directly from Matty sadly since I am late and much of the stock is gone. But I bought what I could to directly support the MOTUC line. I missed the cutoff for a 2013 subscription, but will make sure I get a sub for 2014 if the line continues.

    I stopped collecting comics (except MOTU from DC), and I no longer collect videogames like I used to, so now MOTUC is pretty much where all my money goes. I am addicted now.

    I prefer not to think about it. I tend not to dwell in the past. It distracts from the now.
