What I didn't buy - 2016

This year, we're makinga break with tradition. Usually, I post a list of everything I bought, with all the stores and dates and prices and whatever other sorts of obsessive information people might like.

But in the past year, it really feels like there were a lot more toys I bought and returned, because I didn't enjoy them. So let's go through month by month and see what things I really only borrowed.

So, clearly I only thought there were a ton of returned figures - in reality, I still kept most of what I bought.

It is interesting, however, to look at what things went back to the store: live-action DC figures mainly, and those because they were poorly made. A few others went back because they were broken, and I never managed to find replacements. And at least one was because I knew a better version of the figure would be along eventually.
