I really gotta cut back on my spending.
But with wave 2 of legacy expected out soon along with the other two evo packs and animated wave 2 I think that will be hard. Not to mention DragonBall z season 6 coming out next month along with DragonBall GT and The Force unleashed.
School has been on strike all month. so much for the summer job I was hoping to get D:

I won't tell you that Wave 2 Legacy, all 4 EVO's hit on 7/26 here in Minnesota, and reports are coming in of the Comic Packs and Battle packs arriving now too.

August so far= 209.70

Was finally able to pick up 2 of the TAC figures I needed at a local comic shop. While going to another I was able to find the all so rare (anywhere besides Japan that is) Gundam figures. I only bought the LaGOWE because it was A. Cheap and B. the only one from the Gundam Seed series. I wanted to buy the Destiny mobile suit but that one was $16.99. Its a great series but they are very hard to get and very expensive for the main characters mobile suits. I might pick up the Destiny the next time I go. Besides they have been at that shop for a year now. When I went last year they had 3 of these Gundam figures and since then I have picked up to of them. Only one left to go lol.


edit august22****picked up a ton of figures in Buffalo at a way cheaper price. heck I was surprised to find wave 3. only thing that sucks is now after I find the quad cannon clone it will be even longer till something new arrives up here :-\
next stop Fan Expo....it will be expensive for sure.

edit august 24*** Expo actually was not to expensive but it was a ton of fun.

Still no wave 2 up here in Canada. I'm guessing it will come in this month while all other waves will also be pushed back a month. So with my luck we will at least get wave 3 legacy by the end of the year and wave 2 clone wars :-\. Collection spending will be cut back a lot though as my first day of University is tomorrow and those monthly passes for the GO bus are going to cost me $150 a month :-X Now its time to buy only what I really need or in this case because toys are not a need..want :)


Oh yeah forgot to mention I was also able to get a SPC discount card.So basically all the figures I buy from now on will be from  Zellers or the Bay because I get 10% off. Pretty good considering I will be saving about $1.15 a figure and since there are only 20 figures left for me to get (in which I know I wont be finding half of them anyways) I can save up to $25. There are also a bunch of other deals all in which will help make university cheaper for me. The card cost $7 and it has already saved me $4.

May= $164.34
June= $198.27
July total= $237.47
August= $209.70

Year so far= $1470.01 $1430.57




Sept.
Returns
Guitar hero guitar =   -$39.54


purchases
Clone Heavy Gunner= 11.29
DragonBall Z season 6= $40 (i used the left over change for the bus but mainpoint is that its gone lol)

September should be cheap for me though. I already got the last Legacy figure I needed and I doubt clone wars wave 2 will be out anytime soon in Canada anyways. Only other thing I need for this month in terms of Hobby spending is DragonBall Z season 6 which comes out on Tuesday
I have also spent about $25 in food and bus tickets at university and $500 in books but Ill leave that out for now.



The extra guitar I bought for my guitar hero broke down so after talking with the stores head office I was able to get a full refund for it because he stated that all the ones they sold were having the same problems. So i got $39.54 back. I then used the money toward buying RB but once I got to my car to give it a further inspection I realized that there were no drum sticks, and the drums were really banged up. heck some of the pads were already falling off, not to mention the fact that it had all been just thrown into the box. So i went back and got my money back. They tried to refuse giving my money back but I reminded them that I bought it 5 minutes before hand and they stated they had to call head office for a refund, once I said I would wait they caved in lol. I still support the store but I will only buy dvds from them for now on, all the accessory type things I have bought from them have always been crap.

Year so far=  1481.76



Had to fix up my May spending. due to the fact that I had to return my GH guitar. I screwed up somewhere I know so my over all spending is going to be off a bit by the end of the year but what ever I just want an idea of how much I spent all year, I dont care about being exact.

On the side note I am very happy that I was able to keep Sept spending down. although then again if I didnt buy wave 2 in the states in august I would have for sure broken the $100 point this month lol. All I need now is about 15 basic figures between clone wars and Legacy. I can see Wave two of clone wars hitting canada and wave 3 of Legacy but I dont think we will get the last wave for each set up here. And if we do it will be next spring and each store will only get 1 box each and then hasbro will say they were here so we should just shut up and give them more money.
