Lately I've been just buying Dune stuff.  I try to limit myself to under $200 per month.

I collect Star Wars, Masters of the Universe, and Transformer PVCs with the occasional McFarlane figure thrown in for good measure.

Been awhile...wondering if anyone's toy spending habits have changed.  For me, it seems to be breaking down like this:

According to my little spreadsheet, covering what I have bought this year (my wife's idea, and a good one), I am averaging around $40-55ish a month on toy spending this year, which surprised me.  The vast majority of that has been Star Wars spending, I'm guessing about 95%.  I've bought almost every Saga figure released in 2004, as well as the new OTC, and what VOTC I have found.  Add in Unleashed, glass sets, etc., and it takes up the majority of the budget.  Looking at my spreadsheet here, it looks like I've bought 13 non-SW items this year:

3 minimate four packs (Marvel)
4 Lord of the Rings figures
4 Spider-Man figures
1 MOTU figure
1 Batman figure

I think I've bought 13 non star wars items this week :'(

2 deadpool
1 phoenix
1 juggernaut

1 Moria Orc Archer
1 Elrond (1st)

2 white Jamal Lewis
1 white Payton Manning

Okay, only 9, but you get the point. 

Star wars gets the most money.  McFarlane used to get a fair chunk of change, but not any more.  Marvel Legends I may pick up one or two more, then wait for the next series.  May pick up the S6 pack this weekend if I see it.  LOTR is fairly stable in purchasing, not much to buy at all right now.  Limited focus is good.  Kubricks are currently a non-issue.  Simpsons are done.  Vintage Star wars is all but done.

It depends on what's out, if I get lucky nad happen to find New Star Wars toys then it get's the bulk of attention, but If I find tons LOTR figures then I'll foucs on it;  the day I the Snakes figures in stores and then I'll buty MOTU;and I fidn tons ML I want Then they get my attention. It all depnds what eaiser to find at the moment.
