7 figures, 2x2-pack. Some cherries willingly unpicked, for some didn't even have a chance.
"She-Ra, Princess of Power was no more. That had been the price of freedom."
I came in in November of year before last, an bought [ALL] of the figures released up to now in 2012, all during last year except for 12 I managed to find in a bulk lot on ebay before January of 2012 at $200.
So, as of last count [counting the extra figures I purchased for custom figures] I am pushing...
[make sure ot make the lil cha-ching sound then an a lil bacon sizzling sound when you click for full effect, lol]
right now for 2012 purchases alone. An that's a rough estimate guessing, at $30 per item for "ALL MOTUC items to date including non figure items which dont go for that much". So $30 x the 131 figures I own [counting extras for customs, giants, vehicles, accessory packs, etc]. "An this estimate is coming from buyin from reputable .Org marketplace sellers ONLY, an waiting for good deals... "
I dont even wanna thinks about using secondary markets like Amazon an Evil-bay only... [shivers]....
So for new ppl coming into classics, I recommend having at least $4K ready to be spent so you can get caught up for all of the 2008-2012 figures [excluding the silver shera, and bronze & spirit grayskulls]... lol
So as of RIGHT NOW! Masters of the Universe Classics will run you as much as a used car to be caught up!!!! INSANE!!!! lol

My Custom MOTUC's http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/album.php?u=36694
I started collecting toys after SDCC 2012. Between SDCC Exclusives, GI Joes, Marvel Universe, MOTUC, Transformers and DC Collectibles, I have about 2500 spent in the last 6 months.
I'm too tired to do the math right now but I had one regular sub and the only extras I picked up were Fearless Photog, an extra TP He-Man, and Vykron.

"The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing." - Blaise Pascal
I really shouldn't have checked but I totaled up my purchases in the order history and including shipping I spent just under $1700 on Matty Collector in 2012. Included in that total is the main MOTUC sub, 30th sub, and Voltron sub as well as 12 other MOTUC figures, 2 weapon packs, 3 SDCC exclusive Vykrons, Blazing Sword Voltron, and DCIE Atrocitus. Oh and a PKE Meter too. In 2013 I hope to limit the extra MOTUC figures and with no 30th Sub or Voltron sub I would like to see my spending this year go below $1000.
Gosh... It would be easy to see if my Order History weren't missing But I guess I can do it this way:
Star Sisters x 2
Fearless Photog x1
Fearless Photog x1 (sale price)
Shadow Weaver x1
Shadow Weaver x1 (BBTS, not sure that this counts)
Kobra Khan x1
TP He-Man x2
Slush Head x2
Snake Mountain Stands x2
Spector x1 (sale price)
Horde Prime x2
Snake MAA x2
Vykron SDCC x2
Sir Laser Lot x1
Sir Laser Lot x1 (sale price)
Snake Warriors 2-pack x1
Dragon Blaster Skeletor x2
Temple of Darkness Sorceress x4
Weapons Pak #3 x2
Eternos Palace Randor x1
Castle Grayskullman x2
Add to this all the DC figures... as well as Cyber Monday (half-off) purchases of Icarius, Buzz-Off, Sy-Klone, Grizzlor, Count Marzo, Evil-Lyn, Trap Jaw, & She-Ra
2013 would be more conservative if I could have my way, but there's more to spend on that will be coming...

A Want List of Sorts: Roton, Skelcon, POP costume She-Ra / Starburst She-Ra, and all the other POP, Filmation, & NA characters.
I spent bunches.
July 2016 can't get here soon enough!
I'm home sick from work today so as one of those rainy day items I went back and reconciled how much I thought I should have been charged by Matty in 2012 vs my Amex Year-End Summary. The good news is that everything seems to be in order. It was a pain in the @$$ since the "view invoice" link on the order history pages seem to be broken, and the Star Sisters installment billing plan had incorrect total info on the order history page, but at least everything seems to balance.
Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!
