Updated with some corrections. I split Transformers into non-Legends and Legends figures. I count figures, but not upgrade kits.

Spending was reduced slightly in 2022 because there were fewer Transformers releases. I expect 2023 to be a bumper year.

Despite wanting to wind down collecting MP figures, I still bought quite many of them in 2022. I expect it to be the same for 2023 (fulfilling prior pre-orders), but the number should come down in 2024 (higher threshold for new purchases).

I spent more than expected on Bricks and Astro stuff. My target is 0 this year. :-D
