March was my biggest month yet, and aside from possible exclusives in April - it should be pretty slow until July, particularly for Star Wars.  Of course, that doesn't account for Indiana Jones, Marvel, DC, and all that :).

Star Wars
3 TAC Wave 1 Figures=$20
2 TAC Evolutions Sets=$40
Galactic Heroes Cinema Scene (Speeder Bike Chase)=$20
3 Galactic Heroes 2 Packs=$18

Total=$98

Other Purchases
Iron Man Movie Mach 3 Iron Man=$10
2 DCUC Action Figures=$20

Total=$30

Total for March=$128

Total for 2008=$250.98

Just before march ended i picked up a Evo clone set. $33.89

March total= $214.49

Year so far= $521.80


I cant believe i have spent so much money. and yet i feel like I have found nothing.


April:

DragonBall Z history of Trunks movie= $25.80
Super DragonBall Z (PS2) = $11.28
Star Wars Revelation= $ 10.17
Guitar Hero 3= $101.69 (cant beleive i bought it)

EDIT
Well last week during the BOGO at TRU i ended up returning some figures and came out with $$22.58 which lowers my yearly spending too...

Year so far= $600.91

and so i only have $180 to last me till july 26 in terms of "hobby" spending.

Almost a zero month for me until the last couple of days:

Vintage trilogo R2-D2 periscope $46 shipped
Vintage trilogo Obiwan Kenobi and trilogo squidhead $75.02 shipped
Jump trooper and evo trooper $21

Total for the month of April: $142.02
March total: $346.09
February total: $269.73
January total: $248.96

Total for the year so far: $1006.80

Sold off a couple of hundred bucks worth of stuff locally too, but not factoring that in again.  I'll probably spring for some Indy things in May, so I'm expecting that month to be more pricey too. 

May:
Indiana Jones stuff: six basic figs, 4 deluxe sets: $80
Box Kubrick Series 8 $80
Indiana Jones GG artifact (Crystal Skull) $45

alright so i had yet another slow month with only 1 SW purchase which was a bummer.

Jan= $148.40
Feb= $158.91
March= $214.94
April= $148.98 -$11 from returns. total $137.98

Year total=$660.19


hmm not quite sure why my numbers are not adding up considering i bought GH3 and my year total only went up $60. but none the less if it is off it shouldnt be by much.

May might get a little expensive for me what with the new indy toys and the FU figures finally on cdn card. plus the new wave of comic packs finally hitting the shelves. But if I can stay on my budget i should be fine, and get more then what i need to fill my gaps.

Let's see - April totals...it doesn't seem like I bought much this month, but I guess much of it was closer to the beginning of the month.

Star Wars
Order 66 Packs (5 packs)=$50
TAC Force Unleashed Wave (5 figures)=$33.15

Other Stuff
Iron Man Movie Mark 3 Iron Man=$9.99

Total for April=$93.14

Total for 2008=$344.12

Big Indy hit today/this weekend should make May higher than it should be, but other than that it shouldn't be much SW stuff until July now.

I'm betting no Mauers are in there.  And since he's getting $2.50 figures and using the $5.00 coupons, that's over 500 figures!    :o
