Since I'm already thinking seriously about not collecting figures anymore, and since the main reason I collect figures now is to share them with any kids I might have in the future, it would be pretty easy for me to give up collecting for a woman.

My girlfriend doesn't mind my collection, she does kid me about the posters in my living room and the prop lightsaber collection, but she's never said anything about my hobby being too odd that she'd want me to give it up or anything.

Yes, I have a 5 year old son, but I think he's referring to another point in my post- the point about getting help if you are too focused on where to get the next figure than you are on the person you are with...

And what if the figure is ON the person I'm with AND I'm too focused?!
This is just such an open door... but I'm going to be good... for a change... anyone else want to take this one?

Do this is all an attempt to get off Santa's Naughty List?  :D

Yes, but it would have to be a severe situation. Finances, or somthing.

You take me and my hobby. It's a package. I also have a package.

I'd give up my collection for the perfect woman, no doubt.  But not for any old chick, she has to be wife potential.  Like I wouldn't give up collecting for a girlfriend.  Screw that.  So I guess what I mean is I would give up my collection for my future wife, who ever that is...

The question is a little vague.  It all depends on the girl.

I know you left it open, but it doesn't mean I want to take it :P

Yes, I'm feeling the heavy culmination/burden of a rough year myself especially now during the "so-called" holidays. But wait that's every year for me ;) guess I wouldn't have it any other way 8)

I get so many recommendations from people to order online, I really need to add a disclaimer as my sig:

"Thanks for your concern, but online ordering is NEVER going to be an option for me as long as I am married to my current wife. You fine people simply do not grasp the atomic level intensity of my wife's temper when it comes to boxes of worthless junk toys showing up at our house. I do not need that kind of stress in my life. I would rather have my nuts splattered with a ballpeen hammer than to endure that kind of unrelentingly painful punishment."

Trust me, it's much more appealing to go through the angst and frustration of driving store to store than to put up with any more of that nonsense.
Slice you open like a tauntaun, faster than the Autobahn,
Or a motorbike in Tron, do the deed and then I'm gone.
