Totals so far
January - $180
February - $130
March - $495
April - $99
May - $228

YTD - $1132  :o :o :o :o :o

Does this total even include the Joe Mauers?  ;)

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


Only 1 Maure for myself, but if you look at the over all list of what has been purchased very little of it has been Star Wars. Mostly Stargate figures (3 Waves of them)
I have been told to go to hell; well at least I will know everyone there!

Jan - $342.04

Feb - $204.30

Mar - $427.94 
  The Medicom oversized Darth Vader was responsible for half of that.

Apr - $743.95 
  Ouch. Over $450 of that was spent in 3 days in Edmonton at the Toy Show.  Damn it was fun though.

May - $330.24
  The month's not quite over, but I seem to be back to my "normal" pace of spending.  But I've got another $150 worth of stuff still to come in the mail.

I didn't keep the best track this month, but I'll give my best estimate.  As far as I can remember, I think it was pretty much all Indy this month:

Indiana Jones Basic Figures (16 at 6.99 each)=$112
Indiana Jones Deluxe Figures (6 at 9.99 each)=$60
Indiana Jones Adventure Heroes (9 at 5.99 each)=$54
Indiana Jones Vehicle (1 at 19.99 each)=$20

G.I. Joe Basic Figures (2 at 6.84)=$13.68

Dark Knight Movie Masters (2 at 9.99 each)=$20

Total for May=$279.68

Total for 2008=$623.80

By far my worst month I believe, and higher than I'd like to be for the year.  I don't think I'm looking for much aside from the Mygeeto BP and Shadow Stormtroopers until the big July 26th SW hoopla, unless more Indy or DCUC stuff shows up.

Jan= $148.40
Feb= $158.91
March= $214.94
April= $137.98
May= $164.34

Year total=$824.57

I think I spend way to much money in May, however all I need now is one more Indy figure (his dad) and I will probably be done with that line for the rest of the year. I think I SHOULD be good for figures until July 26, but that day will for sure beat most of my above listing which is going to hurt my little friend named wallet. All I need now is the Mygeeto pack(which will probably arrive in Canada sometime around christmas) and a SL gold coin figure.

I missed keeping track in May. I know it started heavy but ended pretty painless. June just had its first purchase as well. Got my Sideshow LOTR Frodo and Sam.

June

Well after buying the BMF this months costs just went up!

BMF= $160
shocktrooper/evo trooper= $21.33
Basso comic pack= $16.94

Month so far= $198.27


I put the BMF as $160 for one major reason...thats all I paid. My dad said he would help me pay this thing off because since it came out so soon I did not have enough for it, also he said it was considered as my end of 'high school gift'....now to make sure I can get the grades I need to continue my life in university. Now mind you this months costs is only on my collecting items, my university enrollment deposit cost me $450 :o all I have to do now is cross my fingers work my butt off and get a sure seat in the Uni then I get to pay off the other $5000. And my parents have already said they wont help me with this pay lol.

note: to make things easier for myself instead of making a new post for every item I buy this month I will just edit it into this post.

Wow I never thought I would break the 4 digit point. This is kind of making me wonder how much I am gonna end up spending all year. I already have about $500 worth of stuff I am planning to buy this month, although that doesn't go to say I will buy it all first day. At this rate I just hope I don't break the $3000 mark by the end of this year. July should be fun though :-\ :)
