Anyone else seem to be losing interest in the lines? I am a flashback guy so maybe it’s different because we don’t have as much coming?i haven’t even picked anything up since the Walmart Elites hit. Nothing really interests me and when I do find newer stuff, I have passed on it. I hate seeing stuff I paid full price for half price and under so maybe that’s one reason. Maybe I am tired of the repaints? I. Don’t know what it is but I just haven’t really been excited about collecting lately. Hoping SDCC changes that.Anyone else in the same boat?

Yup I still want stuff but I just don’t care much anymore. I’m a flashback collector and there’s not enough regularly or easily available. Lack of announcements/lineups and images kills this place a little for me too. When we do see stuff or hear stuff I have no confidence in when I’ll ever see it to purchase.
**The way the relationship deteriorated with the Mattel design team and this forum has been a turnoff to me. **

I go in and out. Stop collecting for a few months, then buy 20 figures one random month. I've learned its a love/hate relationship... but i know not to part with the collection or i'll hate myself later, as many here have done in the past.

Lost it. Seeing SDCC will be exciting but once there became an abundance of exclusives that have become increasingly hard to get and brick & mortar distribution became terrible and inconsistent I really lost it. Coming here seeing people’s collections is fun but I’ve got 0 desire to buy even one figure again.
As a "flashback" collector, I do occasionally get the newer guys if they look cool -- like the Drifter guy from NXT from Series 60. I don't really follow WWE much anymore so the figures are strictly sold to me on the look or if they were in NXT a while back when i was watching that. I am really ready for some NEW flashbacks were they haven't already made 3 or 4 of them already. I love Andre and got the new on from 60 from Ringside with the Drifter but I am ready for more characters that we've not seen yet by Mattel. 80's, 90's, 00's, 70's -- whichever. Just fuel the older collector's drive, Mattel.
Not removing until Mattel makes a KING of HARTS Owen Hart figure (never removing)

It really all depends on what Flashbacks are shown at SDCC ...
The few and far between legends releases are getting slim and I really have only truthfully watch the Royal Rumble & WrestleMania all year long ... I’m slowly losing interest, but the Golden Era and Attitide Era figires are the only thing keeping me around.
Guess I’ll know my answer after this years SDCC 👍🏻
