:shock: :shock: :shock:

Wow, that's quite something and I'm sure you're going to need that bed at some point so the quicker you figure out where to display them the better :lol:

Great run though.

Thanks guys. Thought I would gather them all for a group shot. Only problem is the floor aint as comfy as the bed but the bed looks better! :lol:

I think I started them early in the year so 10 months ish. Still after variants and upgrades but no rush as the rest of them can trickle in from now on.

In readiness for the arrival of the Khetanna next year, I couldn't resist preparing a companion craft to display alongside it. I hope you like it :-)

Right, have to get my head around stuff. Compulsive buying is not working! :lol:

Options I have and after a bit of advice.

To fund my habit, do I:

1. Sell modern vehicles and just concentrate on carded modern?
Would save space and raise funds for vintage and modern figures .

2. Cut and run on TVC to raise funds?
Way too many to get and space for display.

3. Sell off any duplicates/spares in collection to raise funds?
Are they required when they are not variants but very hard to part with.

4. All of above?

5. Stop buying modern and focus really hard?

What your thoughts?

1. Sell modern vehicles and just concentrate on carded modern?

Are you enjoying having them? If you are doing it because you feel the pressure to have a complete collection, then likely you are doing it for that reason rather than because you want to enjoy them. "gotta collect them all". I would advise on giving yourself some clear rules. They may be rules you are happy with yet may appear mad to others, but its your collection. Do it your way.

2. Cut and run on TVC to raise funds?
Way too many to get and space for display.

TVC is a really nice collection and the value appears to be decent over time especially on those earlier ones. But if you didnt get them early, theres a LOT to catch up on. I only get the TVC ones that fit into my focuses and I look longingly at those I missed out on worth 5 times the amount... (but happy I keep to MY rules)

3. Sell off any duplicates/spares in collection to raise funds?

Nope. Just wasting space. Sell em..

5. Stop buying modern and focus really hard?

buy/collect what you enjoy. Fuck collections unless it keeps you happy. Completing these modern lines should be fairly straightforward, and might be something you complete then store away (for peace of mind). HOWEVER I would recommend getting a carded and loose . That way you can have the collection of figures in a much smaller space knowing you also have them carded.

I hope this helps.. make sure a collection doesnt stress you out.

All very sound answers, I’d agree with everyone of them.
Especially the first one “gotta collect them all” is a path to the Dark Side.

Thankyou very much for the time taken to write put thoughts down. You too Mini.

So, recently, this happened:

1. Concentrated on two lines - Rogue One and TFA. Love the thought of completion even though space for vehicles is tight. Two vehicles left for Rogue One completion but if i have one or five (k2so) i love them all if i am honest.
2. Still obtaining other modern lines if currently cheap but no rush to complete.
3. With my excess figures, one going loose and display, variants or marketing differences being kept. Others will swap out / sell.
4. TVC going. Only keeping Enfys nest - stunner.
5. Vintage loose retain. Jawa army and some mocs gone. Good for funds.

Thanks again for the insight. Always welcomed.
