Andy, Andy, Andy. You caved in man!

Seriously, this is a pot-kettle thing as I have basically done the same thing. Reading your story gave me a chuckle as I went through my "only collect action figures" phase. Then I branched out into some DC Direct statues - nothing big - just Supes/Bats. Next thing I know I am collecting Bowen. Then finally, alas, Sideshow Ms. Marvel. And to add insult to injury, I also pre-ordered Sideshow Exclusive Rogue!

Well, I'll tell you now, there is now way I'll be starting on life size monsters! No 1:1 scale Godzilla for me! THOSE people are the ones that give collectors a bad name!  Wink

She is gorgeous.

I did like the guy selling one on ebay and his "selling point" was the inclusion of a photo that shows you can pull her costume to the side and reveal her assets  Grin

I'm seriously running out of space. I already have numerous statues I can't display due to space. I was contemplating the Hobgoblin statue and simply can't find anywhere to put it.

It's amazing how space can change your buying habits, moreseo than whole in the wallet.

I just force my display space to accommodate my buying habits. Mrs AFB loves buying things from IKEA in equal parts to how much she dislikes my collection. It balances out in my favour.  Grin

I just got really lucky. We moved a few years back to put our kids in a better school. Wasn't looking for it, but the house we found came with a "bonus" room over the garage. It now doubles as my office and my "display" room. I filled it with bookcases and Ikea shelves. Now I've got plenty of room for "collectables".  Thumbs Up

I have my own 'office'/display room, but it's so full of unorganized crap right now, that my office is in whatever room I feel like using the laptop in.  I should straighten up my room, because I do have lots of neat items I'd like people to be able to see (or you know, that I'd like to see), but it's not nearly big enough for PF statues.

I think this Ms Marvel one is gorgeous, and I wants it, and I don't know anything about the character at all.

"I Like it and I wants it". That should be the official AFB mantra  Cheesy

If nothing else, it's pretty much my official mantra regarding any collectibles depicting any DC Heroine, and most Marvel Heroines.

I'm always wanting more
Of anything I haven't got
Everything I want it all
I just can't stop

It's true.

Mrs 'shake made an off the cuff comment about "When will it stop? You can't just keep buying more stuff. Aren't you happy with what you've got?"

I'm pretty sure I've heard that one, word for word.
