Summer of Doom- for my wallet.

This upcoming summer will be the summer of doom for my wallet!

Last year at A-kon 21 I spent nearly $230 on loot.

So this year, I figured since I’m not going to A-kon 22, I’d save some money. Who knew that this would be the spring and summer for awesome figures, not to mention huge amounts of new nendos (12  nendoroid releases in April and 11 in June, has GSC lost its mind?). The only problem now is instead of seeing the figures in person, like I would have at A-kon, I’ll have to take a chance and order them and hope they look as good as the pics. No saving money for me =s

Upcoming figures that I’ve pre-ordered:

Black Gold Saw: 4/2011, ~$50

Kuroneko: 4/2011, ~$60

Kinoshita Hideyoshi: 4/2011, ~$60

Yikes, April is going to make me bankrupt me =(

Other upcoming figures I want:

Strength: 6/2011, ~$50

(Alpha x Omega) Tia Harribel: sometime in 2011, no estimated price yet. I want this to match my Alpha x Omega Nel, however in the promotional pics she looks much larger than Nel =S

Play Arts Kai Cloud: 06/2011, $60. I must have this toy, I love Cloud!

Play Arts Kai Squall: 06/2011, $60. This one looks damn good too =(

Well Kenshin Himura is one of my favorite characters! Why do they have to release 2 versions? (I can’t decide between them). The first is the Battosai version and will be released 06/2011 and will cost approx $90. The second is the Rurouni version and will also be released 06/2011 and cost $90. Oh my, I need him, but which one to get, also each version comes with the face and hairstyle of the other (to switch out). So the real decision is whether I want him with a red shirt or a blue shirt…

Figures that I’m not going to get because I’ll be bankrupt:

Sadly, I’m choosing to forgo nendoroid Haru-chan who will be released 4/2011, and nendoroid Sherlock Shellingford who will be released in 7/2011.

So far, that means ill be spending approximately $170 in April and approximately $260 in June. I’ve already ordered for April, so no going back. That means I have decisions to make for June (cries). Not too mention, I recently started watching Full Metal Alchemist:Brotherhood on Netflix, absolutely love it, and now want to buy these older figures:

Play Arts Kai Edward Elric, Roy Mustand, and Alphonse Elric which were released back in 10/2009.

So, anyone feel like helping me make some decisions? Lol =D
