So I know I joke about this quite often, but it seems that it really has come true faster than I ever expected: I have reached critical mass in terms of both toy display AND storage in my room. Even after doing a good bit of shifting in my closet today, I really only cleared some things off of the floor and stuck them on the shelves.
But did that stop me from picking up Frankie, Lagoona, and Draculaura today at Wal-Mart and TRU? Of course not. It's so easy to ignore your own space limitations when your standing there in a store surrounded by really awesome toys.
My collection has really gone through some explosive growth lately, and it has not been without its share of growing pains. Aside from the space issues, the Silkstone Ken I ordered on eBay appears to have been in the possession of a smoker. There was brown gunk ALL OVER his stand and shoes, and his white shirt and jacket have brown stains on them! That really, really irks me. There was NO MENTION of that in the listing, and the pics are strategically taken to minimize showing ANY of these very apparent flaws. I fully intend to replace him at some future point in time with a MIB version. But in the meantime, I need to attempt to launder the clothes and see if I can't get the stains out. ~_~ *sigh*
I may have reached the point of selling some things if I want to add any more, but in truth I am attached to everything in the collection at this point. Is that a sign of being a hoarder? I feel like it sometimes. So many books, DVDs and toys...it's just an untenable situation. So I finally sat down and made a list of the lines that I collect. This list should serve to guide me and (hopefully) keep my collection in some semblance of order and prevent it from growing so huge that it falls and kills me in my sleep.( Here if you want to see it and a small wishlist )
