Do preorders count, if we have to pay in advance?

Only count it when you've cut the cheque, paid the cash/paypal or it's been charged to your credit card.

okay, i decided to just go with a "monthly recap" of sorts, instead of posting every time i bought something new - which seemed to be everyday for a while  ;D

so, here's january 2004:
1/2 - $303 - various momc/loose figures and ships from rebelscum forums
1/7 - $60.33 - 12" biker scout and 12" ewok 2-pack
1/9 - $159.65 - real stands (500 pcs)
1/10 - $28 - star cases
1/20 - $46 - more figures from someone @ rebelscum forums
1/22 - $18 - even more figures from someone @rebelscum forums
1/24 - $30 - wave 1 animated clone wars from target

monthly total for january - $644.98
year to date total - $644.98
year end estimate - $3500
percent of yearly estimate spent so far - 18.4%

I've spent WAY too much money so far.... On the plus side, I'm caught up on United Cutlery LOTR, and now have a complete Kubrick collection. I even have enough to preorder 6 more items from United Cutlery.

The bad side, well, my collection is pretty darn small and getting smaller. I may be selling my LEGO collection if the right offer comes my way.

I think I may go over to prop collecting, but continue collecting Star Wars Kubricks and Mini Busts. I guess I'll see how it goes.

Since January is over, I'll give my monthly totals.  

Toys:
$93.04

Comic books/DVDS/Magazines/Books and the like:
$349.91

My toy count is low because I haven't received any shipments yet from Kebco.  That number will skyrocket next month as I have a huge list of pending items just waiting to be shipped.  

All in all, not too bad.
