    The fund tracker for Castle Grayskull 2013 or bust thread!!!

    Hey everybody, I thought some of us might need a little motivation or group
    support to start putting those funds away for CG and stop procrastinating!

    I've got my 2 CG set to my spare CC...but i still plan on putting aside the funds each month.

    so starting today my total is

    $50

    Has anyone who needs to start now made any progress and how much have you been able to stash away?

    Good luck!

    Awesome banks...I have these in my collection!

    My wife who's relatively tolerant and passive about my collecting will kick my *** if she finds out I am spending $800 plus dollars on Castle Grayskull playsets. I pre-ordered 3 of them and I'm putting away $75 a month so when we get to December I won't be ebaying like crazy just to pay for them.

    putting money aside to support the motuc line should come first by buying army builders, 2 or 3 packs, vehicles, beasts, play sets, weapon pack & the monthly figures.

    Well, I just got a raise that'll give me about an extra $80 per month, so I guess I got it easy this year! That said, I also have a Subscription for the first time, so I still have to be careful about my spending, but I'm off to a great start!

    But seriously, CG and the Horde Troopers are gonna hurt come end of the year.

    I'm going to the bank and buying a couple rolls of dimes. I can only save money when it's in coin form.

    As soon as I replace 3 surfboards that were destroyed by Sandy, then I will start to save for CG... Oh yea, the beach house was destroyed too, so that has to be replaced whenever insurance decides to get off their slow as mol-asses!

    I'm just saying we're probably going to need to have $420.00 for Dec. 2013.

    CGC + S&H + tax

    2 Figures (I am guessing)

    I just bet ya' they are going to announce an oversized item at $60.00 +

    My last car payment is in September so I should be all set because that should cover CG and any other stuff that comes out in December.

    I'm about to purge my Star Wars collection to its barest elements and hope to raise enough money to more than cover the cost of Grayskull. (I've got a TON to get rid of and shouldn't have much trouble, even if I charge a dollar or two per figure. It's going to be official soon: I'll have a bigger MOTU collection than Star Wars! For me, that's really saying something!)
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Well, Mermista and I ordered 10. So our total with shipping will be $2860.02

    We are on the way to that total as of this payday yesterday we have a total of $500.00 put away.

    At this rate we will have all of the Grayskulls paid for by June 7th.

    Does anyone remember the date that Matty said to have fund ready by, I believe it was a month before December 10th, but I do not remember for sure.

    I've been saving since around November and currently have 80 aside. Definitely on target to do this.
