Wow, you've spent an assload too!

I forgot about the Tri-Fighter and the Battle Arenas... and the damn EE Clones... better add those to my list.   And I just found Mustafar on my lunch break.  :)

 :P

Yeah - I've spent a mega-assload on this stuff!

For me - basically I'm on the look-out for the TRU Green Anakin Starfighter w/figure (which I'll get two of) and I also need to still pick up by XBox copy of the EP3 Video Game - after that, I'll be enjoying the (hopeful) break for a while.

I just got the news that I should be moving in the middle of June - so that will put my toy excursions on hold for at least the last half of that month - so once I get those last two things, I may be putting everything off until July...

Oh my God!  I was upset spending a few hundred.  Actually between C3 and 4/2 I have spent a little over $400.

I actually sat down and calculated how much I had spent on ROTS stuff (from toys to books) and I'm not going to reveal the grand total, but it's literally 25% more than I had planned on spending by this point.  And that's just from buying one of each figure.   :-\

The only thing I can be thankful for (I guess) is that after the Mustafar playset, there doesn't look to be anything else coming out this year that is going to break the 15 dollar mark.  At this point, I'd settle for a two month break.

The sad thing is I could probably spend another $400 and still not be caught up with what I want.

I've spent a bit of money, but since I'm not army building or even buying doubles to open one anymore, it hasn't been as bad as in the past.  Couple that with I'm making a LOT more money now compared to when Episode II came out.

That being said, I've gotten a couple of "big-ticket" items in the past couple of months.  Medicom Luke, Marmit Fett, Medicom Vader on it's way next month, Four Elite NASCAR 1:24 cars...that definitely adds up.

I'm not spending too much, in the sense that there's still a lot of stuff I want and haven't bought.

In the sense that my bank account contains a limited amount of money, yes, I've spent too much.  I don't want to add it all up, but it's got to be a few hundred dollars on toys, games, and SW-related foods.  But you gotta eat, right?

I really haven't spent much at all. A couple hundred maybe and that's it. I'm buying everything a little at a time, just when I go out somewhere I'll get a figure or two and maybe a pack of Attacktix or something. I'm trying to make this last (and hold out some for coming clearances). ;) :P
