I will say that since coming to that momentous decision a couple of weeks ago, it has really freed me. Implementing guidelines and rules has eliminated the overwhelmed feeling I had when thinking about collecting. There were times when I just couldn't decide on what to buy or when to buy it and I constantly felt like I had so much to catch up on. Just thinking about it made me dizzy. And really, if I'm feeling overwhelmed doing something that I supposedly love, what's the point? With that in mind, I've given myself some guidelines to my future collecting habits. I'm using the phrase "guideline" because it doesn't feel as rigid as "rules". Here, then, are the guidelines I've given myself:
Buy What I LikeBasically, do I actually like the figure or character? If not, then I won't buy it. This means abstaining from Powerdashers, mini-spies, and possibly Micromasters. Yeah, I said it. No Micromasters. Probably. And in case you were wondering, I will be getting Action Masters. Because they are awesome. But only the U.S. ones. No neon Thundercracker for me.

Buy U.S.Pretty much self-explanatory, no? Now that isn't to say that if one day whilst perusing eBay, or some seller's thread and I run across a Canadian Slag, or some such figure at a rock bottom price I won't stick my nose in the air and pass it by. A deal is a deal, after all. I'm not made of stone, but then again, I'm not exactly made of money either. This doesn't preclude Masterpiece as, well, those figures aren't too expensive when you compare them to vintage figures. Mostly.
