It could be that new hardcover or trade paperback you were waiting for, a new manga volume, the latest book in a series of novels, a new video game or even an entirely new console, maybe an upgrade for your computer, material for your latest cosplay, a commissioned art piece or poster, that cool new action figure or statue, a new pair of Batman undies, or any other kind of geeky merchandise. Maybe you put up some new shelving to keep all that stuff on or even renovated an entire room just for that purpose.

Show and/or tell us about your latest haul.

Well it's wasn't a pricey splurge but I am one step closer to completing my entire Namor run from the early 90s that was started by John Byrne. Got issues 46-50. Just 12 more to go.

I bought the entire Fables run and all of the side series to go with it over the course of the last year. That was cheap for what I got, but still cost me more then I should be spending.

This is probably stretching it, but two Rogue One shirts - one of which is a Disney Parks Authentic.

@xwraith: I did say in my post that it could be a pair of Batman undies, so not much of a stretch .

Over the past couple of months, I've picked up the HGUC YMS-15 Gyan, Figuarts Zero Orochi Doppo and Jae Lee Designer Series Catwoman figure.

I don't usually buy just single figures, I usually go for the entire line/set, but I just had to get this Catwoman 'cause it had the most beautifully sculpted and painted Selina face I've seen short of some kind of premium statue.

Got myself a figure representing probably one of the saddest origin stories in shonen manga/anime.

@jgames: Ooh, which one? Of the various offerings I've seen from different companies, Aquamarine's version is the best-looking, imo.

I've been spending a horrendous amount of money on old comics, back issues and trades (including lots of omnibuses), but I've even been getting stupid stuff too.

Just today I bought the Funko dorbz Nebula. I have absolutely no use for this...

I just got the cheaper re-released figure from Max factory

The one I do want is the kototbukiya, but I am not the type of guy to fork over 100$ plus for one figure even though some of me wants to, there just a part of my brain that tells me that is stupid. Especially since there is lots of counterfeit. The aquamarine one is nicely painted, but not a huge fan of the face tbh. There is a other re-released that does look great, but unfortunately is little bit higher price than I wanted it to be.

Might buy the kotobukiya figure of squirrel girl though.

@jgames: I've only ever spent over $100 on a collectible once, only because it's my absolute favorite comic character and it was such a good representation.

I get the appeal of those kinds of things. They look real cute at first, but then that gets old for me quick. I usually find myself looking for more faithful representations of characters from their source media so those deformed/stylistic pieces like dorbz, pops, etc., don't quite do it for me in the long run. So it's mostly action figures and the rare occasional statue for me.

@gunmetalgrey: Ill spend stupid money on comics but I just can't do it on those statues, as cool as they are or as bad as I want them. I guess if I was single without child I might consider them.

@jloneblackheart: Oh, sure. I've only bought two statues in my 7-8 years or so of collecting. First one I ever got was at a deep discount, to sort of test out the waters, see if I think these things are worth it. The second one was an absolute must-have since my favorite character is one that hardly gets any kind of merchandise at all.

@mrmonster: Well, my definition of splurging includes anything that isn't a part of my regular outgoing cash flow. So I guess the only geeky thing that doesn't fall under that would be my weekly comic pull.

So, did you "buy" anything interesting lately then?

Would you care to share a picture? The composition of sleeves always fascinates me, it has to have just the right nearly seamless flow for it to work.

Hardly a "splurging out" (I'm a notorious penny-pincher), but I've been expanding my collection of the Star Wars EU novels recently. Added these three to my collection last week.

@discipulus: I've always wanted to get into those, but sci-fi has always been such a visual thing for me. I get lost in a lot of the tech jargon and such if I don't see a matching image. Funny thing is, I don't have the same problem with fantasy/sword & sorcery, with all their made up words and spells. Just how my imagination works, I guess.

If you use it for play just as much as you do for work, then sure.

@static_shock: I'm not really into soft goods (fabric, faux leather, etc.) so I've been able to avoid the temptation of 1/6 scale figures for a while, but if they started making comic versions with that same quality, I'm not sure I'll be able to resist..
