Never. :lol:
Even this time around, after thinking long and hard what do I want to collect, I still see things and think “oh that’s nice, I would like that because...”
More focused than last time, but hey a little diversity never hurts, and keeps things fresh!

I like all vintage star wars merchandise, I never knew when to stop. I tried to buy everything in a particular range, but some toys evaded me like the the POTF Skiff.

I am all over the place :S

On this forum a few times daily, just lingering and absorbing wisdom.
On Ebay every night searching for stuff.

Worst mistake ever to fall in love with this forum and collecting again... :lol:

Bought a Carrie fisher signed photo yesterday and a blue-ray movie collection signed by Peter, Kenny and David. Requried a lot of research to feel confident they were the real deal. Had to watch an agonicing amount of homemade comic con 2013 London videos to make sure David Prowse was there as Wikipedia stated otherwise...

Also bough a funny suitcase name tag with a C3PO pointing a finger at you with the quote. "These bags don't belong to you" 1£ =))

I still buy random things that take my fancy but I’ve got pretty good self-control. Started being more discriminating around 10 years ago with the Han Hoth focus

I do get very tempted by tri logos these days but that’s a road I don’t want to travel :)
