So on March 1st what is a person to do when they came off a 28 day toy drought? Buy some freaking toys that's what! So during the day on March 1st I ordered a couple of Stormtroopers from Hasbro Toy Shop, plus a Galactic Heroes Pack I have had my eye on for quite some time and I laid down a couple of bids on those two vintage beauties up there, okay they may be a little banged up in spots, but the price was so right on both and they complete my Vintage line up of Bounty Hunters. All true to my goals for 2011 by the way.
A quote from my wife "Well, it didn't take too long for you to get back into the toy business!"
You know I just realized I bought things that, besides being Star Wars related, feed some of my little toy collecting quirks. For instance I have a habit when I decide to open a figure that I have had for a while where I will bend a corner of the card and then say "well the package it ruined, might as well open it!"
1) The duel Stormtroopers - Having two (sometimes more) of certain figures like Stormtroopers, AT-AT Drivers, etc. Also this may feed my recent addiction to having Stormtroopers of all shapes and sizes in my Stormtrooper focus collection and having one that is packaged when it comes to 3-3/4" scale, old habits are hard to break.
2) The Galactic Heroes Pack - Again having a AT-AT Driver in different styles and in case I get the small AT-AT I will have two drivers even if they do not fit.
3) The Bounty Hunters - My more recent compulsiveness of having a complete set of bounty hunters in different lines or styles. Once I get at least a couple I have to track them all down... which is going to suck because when I didn't have all the 12" POTF ones I let a 4-LOM go and am now trying to complete that set as well... ugh.
Now, I am not saying I am obsessive compulsive, this stuff doesn't bug me when it happens, I have just noticed the pattern.
Which leads me to this, does anyone else have little collecting quirks or compulsive collecting disorders? Dr. Chunky B is in.
One more thing if my family is reading this I also have a disorder of wanting expensive toys for my Birthday and Holidays, but I am too cheap to buy them myself, it hurts the precious...
