This isn’t wwe specific or any company specific, but...
What is the frequency of your figure buying? Is it everyday? Once a week? Few times a month?
Lurking through all the boards on here, it seems some people buy a figure a day or hundreds of dollars in preorders a month. I’m curious to see what people spend on every like they collect and how often they spend it.

Honestly, I just buy the odd figure from NECA a couple of times a year. I only buy figures as display pieces for favourite fictional characters. After stopping buying WWE figures a good 7/8 years or so ago, I used to buy 1:6 scale Doctor Who figures from Big Chief Studios, but due to a lack of space, drop in quality, long production time, and poor customer service, I no longer buy from them.
Now that the main line of NECA figures I used to buy (Heroes of the Storm) has since come to an end, it looks like I won't really be buying anything else in the future, unless a line I have interest in is announced.
I did buy NECA's new Half Life 2 Gordon Freeman figure this week, and am somewhat tempted to buy the upcoming Crash Bandicoot NECA figure. I also bought the complete set of WWE Retros Series 3 this week, due to my interest in the WWE Mayhem mobile game, but given that it looks like the line is dead in the UK, with Series 3 the last to be sold in the UK, it doesn't look like I'll be buying anymore of them.
It all depends what's out at the time I been buying a lot lately with TRU's cheap prices and figures ending up at Marshalls and places like that. I been buying a lot more Pops lately too because its a lot of stuff out that I'm interested in and a lot of good exclusives not counting since IW came out I been getting into Marvel Legends. So its been pretty rough on my wallet lately especially with SDCC coming up.

Due to the cutback of elite flashbacks in the line,.. I’ve only bought hoc Eddie and Virgil and that’s all this year. Last year all together I think I got 10 figures or less and all the previous years were 25+ per year. I didn’t choose to stop buying, Mattel stopped caring about me.
Funkos? All the time. WWE? Bought my first one a couple of weeks ago for the first time since Mattel took over the contract.

Now it's literally when new the new ones that I want are in my local store. I bought absolutely tons throughout last year after starting my new job, but now that I'm all caught up I haven't bought one in just over 2 months. Just waiting on the new stuff being in stock.
I as a kid I used to go to town with my dad every week for a new figure on Tuesdays. I kinda brought back that old tradition last year for a while and even called it Figure Tuesday.
So it went from being almost every week last year to a 2 month drought this year.
I'd be out KB and T'RU hopping every chance I got in the Jakks days. These days it's every now and then,if I happen to see something I like,such as Undertaker or Bret or Warrior. I think about getting a figure fed going again,but I'd have to buy all the ones I had. I do regret selling them on eBay.
