I've yet to be put on restriction. Something tells me that may happen soon. We are now looking into a 3rd glass windowed bookcase to keep the future purchases in. What she doesn't know is that the future purchases have already been made. I believe I have around 20 figures arriving in the next couple of days. To put it bluntly I am a dead man. Much thanks to Trance for helping my collection. Whenever I need a fix Trance is there. Whenever I need accessories or parts or figures to complete a set... Trance is there! Thanks Trance!.

I had it pretty sweet for a while. A high percentage was on display in the 4th bedroom with the rest in the closet (no not that kind of "in the closet"). I had to pack them up and now I have but one lonely shelf that is getting more full. I also have some over flow on to the table where my xbox and tv are. I just don't want my Tfs too close to the ground in the wagging tail danger area. I have more bedrooms now that I live in Italy, but sadly not as many TFs on hand. No restrictions except for having money to buy them. New TFs here in Italy are wicked expensive. So the ones the navy exchange gets in sell very quickly. I just have to go every couple days to check the stock out. If I find one I want but have no money it goes into hiding. Right now there are 4 TFs in hiding. One universe Starscream, one beachcomber, brawn, one other I'm blanking on, and one nintendo DS lite. Sadly the new aniversary OP was too big to go into the hiding place.

My wife thinks collecting Transformers is a big waste of time and money! I keep telling her it's a investment for the future retirement fund! (Man I'd really have a hard time letting my collection go!)

I hate having to buy these without her knowledge and then make sure I get to the post office before she does! Then I have to sneak them into the house and then sneak them out to one of my glass cases in the garage. Fortunely, there are so many, the new purchases just blend right into the Transformers woodwork! :D It's a real addiction for me!!
Ooh...the things we have to do for the love of Transformers! :cry: Until All Are One!!! :D

I too can relate to toy restriction. As an unemployed 26 yr old whose main focus should be studying for my GMAT's or finding another job, I choose to instead spend part of my unemployment checks on this wonderful site. I have been yelled at countless times by mom, girlfriend, sister, etc. God bless you Trance. I can't wait for my shipment, should be here tomorrow or Saturday (hopefully!!). I've put myself on restriction until June or whenever I see something I really want or "need" to have. lol Lemme see some Sludges, Grimlocks (which I just saw he posted) or gawd forbid, a decepticreep.

Buy a couple of 'Cons!!! I thankfully don't have to worry about that anymore. I just buy them and store them until I get my own little Fortress Decepticon.

Itsprimetime - Good luck on the job search. What are you studying for? What are you majoring in?

I was able to smuggle in a package today while she was at work. Time to get rid of the evidence.

I worked into my cabinet 2 decepticon micromaster bases and their micrmasters, 4 micromasters or so, 5 action masters & 4 of their targetmasters/helpers, a minivehicle, and a jumpstarter. I do believe they will blend in with out her noticing. I am dead when the next two packages arrive.

:twisted: Toy restriction will not be happening today! :twisted:



Sorry if this is a double post. My last post disappeared.

Hey Ratchet! I can definitely relate to the smuggling in of transformers and I'm careful to open the package and getting rid of the empty packaging and the box it comes in before my wife gets home too! :wink:

I've had to restrict my self on account that I'm suppose to be moving to Oregon at some point...

I'm suppose to only spend $50 a month... I think ive spent 300 in the past 2. so i'm not quite successful at it... lol

I'm gonna have to crack down on myself though, cause I need to buy a car and insurance. Already got the car lined up just need to go get it.

I was suppose to have moved last October but we haven't been able to sell the property for 6 months.

We finally got a offer last week, but it wasn't enough to make the full move so me and my roommate still have to wait til we sale the other property before we can actually move!

So after April I'm probably gonna have to cut myself down to 20-50 dollars a month with no exceptions...I might as well get a doctors appointment to get some depression pills, may be the only way I'll survive...lol.

Ratchet-I haven't started studying for my GMAT's yet... I majored in finance as an undergrad, then preceded to get laid off last yr from my hedge fund..

Hound- I am happy I was able to make a fellow Autobot laugh. That's what good leaders are supposed to do. Now wheres Ironhide? It's time to go bust some Deceptichops!!
