ok so to sum up my total for feb after buying an evo pack last week.

Jan total = $148.40
Feb total = $158.91


year so far = $307.31

its not to bad i thought it would be more. the thing that scares me most is that in a few weeks it will get higher with waves 7.5,8 and wave 1 hitting local stores along side with the new evo packs and possibly comic packs soon enough. all i have left is 5 tac figures and 1 more double of the hawkbat and im done with that series. after that my next "big" army builder will be the K-trooper with an aim of getting 12 and 5 of each of TFU stormys. this year is really gonna hurt my wallet though with that at-te coming around the corner at a rumored $110 CDN.

I forgot to post my February haul!  I spent $205, but didn't sell anything (so Brent can't give me **** for "cheating" :P).

The majority of that was spent catching up on McQuarrie figures, plus the latest Japanese RC Droids, then a couple titaniums and older Star Tours astromechs.

This month should prove to be a lot more though...

MARCH

TAC Panning droid= $11.29
TAC 2-1B= $11.29
TAC Tri-Droid= $11.29
Wild Weather (novel for a school project)= $13.60
TFU evo pack= $33.89
Battlefront 2 BP= $45.19

March total so far= $126.55

since my last update i have got:

Tac 08 Obi
-Po nudo
-Vader
Hawkbat
and 2 vtac figures (han/leia) at 4.45 each

new March total= $180. 60

My dad was also kind enough to pay for a Gree and K-trooper for me, but since i didnt pay for it im not including it to my spending. Also after getting the k-trooper I have come to the conclusion that I will not army build him to a squad of 12 like I wanted to before hand. He is not what I expected him to be, but at the same time I dont want to have Gree stranded with only one trooper displayed next to him. So i have decided to only buy 4 more. that way I can display them in 2 rows of three with Gree being in the middle of the front row. Still no luck finding Wave 2  and the 5 TAC figures i am missing.

End of March, so:

Gentle Giant Obi-Wan in clone armor : $64.61 shipped
GG first Vader, second Vader, ESB Yoda, CIII sandtrooper busts $255
VTSC Snowtroopers x 6 - how could I not at $3.94 each?  $26.48

I'm not counting the Sith Evo set since I returned three figures at the same time and it came out as a net zero. :)

From that Vader lot I've sold off the CIII sandtrooper bust and will offload the Yoda and Vader too, so it should be that the original release Vader will net out to me at around about $130 8)  Still, the gross total for March was $346.09

March total: $346.09
February total: $269.73
January total: $248.96

2008 total thus far: $864.78

Now, if I was being a "Jesse" I'd be in great shape as I've sold about $200 worth of loose figures lately and about $500 worth of other stuff with another $200 pending.  So on a net basis I've actually made money this year.  Still, not liking that trend of spending more money each month.  I don't really want to spend $3500 on this stuff this year.

Well the March total is in...$579.60.

Much better than the previous 2 months but not great. Add that to the previous total and we get $2765.82.
