Wow! You guys take credit card debt to a whole new level!  :o

Fairly presumptive of you.  Zero credit card debt, but thanks for asking.   ::)

Zero on my end   :)

That's the way it should be. But, I have a feeling that most don't live that way.

I haven't been buying as much, partly because my DH does complain about it, and partly because it's very expensive and I feel that Hasbro has jerked us collectors around so much over the years.

Also, I'm frustrated, because when we bought this house in January, 2004, the large family room was supposed to be my Star Wars room. Four and a half years later, the tile is still stacked up in the corner, the walls are ripped down to the studs, my husband is using it as a workshop to complete a large project for a client, and his cat (the one that wants to kill me, plus he has feline leukemia so he can't be around our other cats) lives out there permanently now. So, I can't even go into my room to look at the toys that are boxed up out there. The dining room, bedroom and bedroom are filled with SW stuff. Our office, living room, bathroom and the cats' room all have SW stuff in there was well, so there's no room for anything else.

So anyway, the combination makes me think twice before buying anything new right now (although I still manage to pick up at least one toy or collectible a week, I think).

I'd say - get rid of the cat.   :)

I'm not sure if that will work.  ;)   :D

It's funny, I started this topic originally back in 2005, now we're closing in on 11years later and it is still an issue. I've been taking some time this week to actually find space for the Force Awakens stuff I've bought and it has me evaluating things again. I have actually been doing better lately with actually getting rid of stuff, selling off between 100 and 150 figures from various lines on eBay, but there is still a space crunch. Add to that the no end in sight situation of the movies, and it will continue to be an issue. I've narrowed a number of lines down ( done with things like Joe and He-Man), but added things like the 6" Black Series and the occasional LEGO set.

It can be tough because I'm not the type who likes to just have stuff in totes/bins, because I figure if it is sitting there, I just as well sell it. Also, I like the more "clean" look for display, which gets tough when you are displaying 100s of figures, plus vehicles and all that. Anyways, does anyone else have this struggle, or are you cutting back or stopping with a number of lines or areas of interest?

Just out of curiosity, how well have the figures been selling on ebay?  Did you get MSRP on them?  I have thinking about selling my carded figures since they have been sitting in totes for years and years.  I just figured I could probably never break even on them.
