Thanks Alden. I wanted that gregory so bad. One week 2 popped up on ebay. 1 for 10$ buy it now and the other on an auction with king kai and bubbles that ended at 28$ I had 0$ on paypal for 2 whole weeks until i got paid!!!! I was so heartbroken. I thought i would never find one again lol it did take about 4 or 5 more months to find another one.
Good to know you finally got one. I once purchased two HG Gashapon saibamens( not sure of the exact name but it's those small neon green color saibamens) since it had the word RARE in it's title for $30 only to later see them being sold by another seller for $12. The only thing rare was the price is what i learnt the hard way.

Thanks ssj2dakota!!! I seriously had like every dbz toy available when i was a kid. That and seeing all the awesome collections here really just made me want to start building the collection I've always owned in my mind. Over the course of building a collection i found so many toys i never new about that I love so much. It was one of the best parts. Funny thing, seeing pictures of my own stuff actually kind of bums me out. I really take common figures for granted, I havnt ended up buying most of them and passing them by all the time makes me feel like I've acquired them. This makes me feel like there's like 200 more figures standing there Lol.

I feel the same way about 5 inch collections. to be honest, seeing your guys' loose 5 inch collections, here on DBF, with all the items from different countries and customs, is what made me want to start collecting Adrenaline , Branjita, doraemonizuka , goldenape808 , monkeyb0y , PGV , timone317 , ssj2dakota , ssgoshin4 , horde23 , cmakhk , ToadKart and all the others too numerous to list. I'm around 280(maybe 10 redundant outfits and such). I've weeded out quite a few subpar figures I had previously had as well. I'm still happy with that though. I was unemployed for 2 months this year because the company I work for sold and needed time to restructure. I managed to land some items that cost 10x as much as commons I still don't have, so I chalk it up to Quality/Quanity. I just feel like if I can find rares i need, then I need to get them while I can actually find them. Some of what I did get this year was Jakks Omega Shenron, AB Capsule Corp, father son Bardock, Epoch softdolls Bulma, Sonokong Goku, and X-retro piccolo Jr. I have a feeling I'll get to 350 pretty quick though. I still have a conservative list with over 100 licensed products I want.
