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.
