Finish the 1985 FiguresThis should be fairly straight forward. I only have 10 figures left to get from this group: Roadbuster, Whirl, Barrage, Chop Shop, Ransack, Downshift, Overdrive, and the Powerdashers. I could probably just cut out the Powerdashers and get the other 6 and be happy. More on that in a bit.
Enjoy the CollectionI've been so busy over the past year trying to add to the collection that I haven't really had a lot of time to stop and smell the roses, so to speak. I've gotten quite a few (to me) figures this year, and I haven't really taken the time to, uh, play with them. Perhaps "play" isn't the right word, but I can't think of a better one. What I've been doing is getting figures, transforming them a few times, and then they go into the displays never to be touched again. It's sad. Time to rectify that. Time...to get a little more child-like.

Get a Japanese Exclusive FigureI've been circling this one for quite some time. After seeing so many posts about Japanese figures, I've gotten the thirst for some Japanese exclusive figures. The only thing that has kept me back has been the prices. I actually tried to bid on the infamous Galaxy Shuttle auction a few months ago, but I came to my senses before the auction hit new records of crazy.
After the auction, I actually got extremely reticent about Japanese figures, as I don't want to spend the kids' college tuition on a few figures. Doing my little favorite past time of making lists and weighing the pros and cons of a situation, I've decided which Japanese figures I really want: Star Saber, Dai Atlas, Overlord, Dezarus and Raiden. The rest are nice, but these are what I'm really after. If all goes according to plan (which it never does), I'll have one of these guys this year. After I get these 5, I may set my sights on figures like Go-Shooter, Minerva, and Artfire.
|Coming soon to my collection? I hope so.|
Become More Involved in the FandomThis one is a little harder for me. I'm kind of involved in a few Facebook groups, but nothing major. I've had accounts on AllSpark and TFW2005 for over a decade now and I think I may have posted 4 times this year on each forum. I need to fix this. I've always just felt that it was a bit hard to join in on the conversations at these forums. There is just so much history there that it's a bit daunting to me. Perhaps if I had actually done more than lurk over the past decade, I wouldn't feel this way. No matter, somehow, some way, I will be a presence on the boards. Look for me.
Four goals for the year sounds simple enough, yes? What about the rest of you? Do any of you have any goals for the year?
