I totally stole this from Valiant's Facebook post on CCL's Facebook Page. Hope you don't mind.
What are you 2012 collecting goals?
Think of this as your comic geek news year resolution, lol. Post your collecting goals for 2012 here. Then come back to the thread and let us know when you've reached that goal or added towards it.
1. I've been a cheap-skate collector FOREVER. Pretty much any issues over $5 a piece was too much for me. So I'm gonna start focusing more on getting better issues. I have gotten some real gems over the years at great prices or in package deals, but because I'm such a cheapskate they've been few and far in-between. I once got a copy of Amazing Spider-Man #300 for $20, but then went and sold it for $60 for party favors when I was teenager because I was a idiot as a teenager.
On my way towards that goal so far I've gotten Amazing Spider-Man #252 (1st chronological appearance of Spidey's Black Costume), Secret Wars #8 (1st in-story appearance of Spidey's Black Costume, and it completes my entire Secret Wars collection of both mini-series!), and I got All-Star Comics #58 (1st issue printed of a JSA-centric comic since the Golden-Age, and 1st Power Girl).
2. Finish off my Ultimates collection already. I've been just a handful of issues away from completing my original Ultimates collection of Ultimates 1, Ultimates 2, and Ultimate Power.
3. Continue building on my Green Lantern collection. I've got a lot, but maybe one day I'll have em all. Check out my thread on my Green Lantern collection here: http://www.comiccollectorlive.com/forum/default.aspx?g=posts&t=32253
I've also got a few non-comic collecting goals. Video game collecting goals:
1. Replace the TurboGrafx-16 my overweight cat broke by sitting on the controller where it plugs in and breaking the controller port rendering it unplayable.
2. Replace my Sega CD which got far too touchy reading game discs.
3. Get a working 3DO system.
4. Get the rest of the Castlevania & Contra titles I need: Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (NES), Super Castlevania IV (SNES), Castlevania: Bloodlines (Genesis), Contra III: The Alien Wars (SNES), Contra: Hard Corps (Genesis), Contra: Shattered Soldier (PS2), & Contra 4 (DS).
