Same here, I wanted everything that looks cool and at least 1-2 of every character I thought looked ok. Then xm came out and I wanted every xm statue. Then I saw prime 1. I wanted all the p1 since it was the new rage! Then I realized I had way too many preorders and I was already out of space with 30 -40 more characters I wanted to po. After that I had to force myself to stop buying and sell away some statues just so I can't complete a line. I felt like I was selling away my babies fighting myself to let statues go. Felt sick and very unhappy. but in time I learned to deal with it and now I'm more happy collecting less. I also enjoy what I have more than before when I was hoarding. Btw selling statues suck! Many broken, dealing with some rude buyers, had to take a lost on most, shipping cost so much on some that buyers passed, then had a lot of buyers low balling to get it 50% off retail basically free, was scammed a couple of times with buyers switching out a part they needed and sending it back to me, and so on. Selling statues is not fun. Now most is gone and I feel good! Not a lot of massive boxes, and the statues I have left has sentimental value to me. And it took me 2 years to sell most of my collection around 70-80 pieces. All this is done right on time with the rising prices, taxes, higher shipping, with ever growing scammers on these high priced items. Now I do have the space left and funds to buy whatever I want that comes out. Just have to be super picky.

I'd have half as many pre orders if statues came out when original stated (looks at Prime 1 Wonder Woman and Ciri...)

I do agree though it is easy to get sucked in. Having a solid annual budget is critical to reduce stress.

When you are considering selling your current collection for a smaller scale because you can't keep up with the rest of the line. R.I.P Bane and Scarecrow.

Iím going to a Batman only collection plan from here on. I figure since heís my favorite character and there are so few statues that do him justice, that will save me some coin. (Iím also going to Norway and doing some big game hunting in Alaska, pricey stuff)

Flex payments are great, but no way in the world I'd take out credit for a statue. That said, aside from the Boba fett print which I used up all my points on, I haven't bought a sideshow produced item in years. If they need more money, they could get their backsides in gear and list some Prime 1 statues that they missed. Start with the EX City hunter please and I promise I'll have that deposit sitting in your bank by the end of the day....

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

I can vouch for Affirm as a decent company. I used them to buy a PC a few years ago. Obviously buying a statue with it might not be a great idea. But many people would like a "grail" and the payment plan is too steep. It's a nice option for people.
