    Well, can you get an AP discount with that ... if anything you can take solace in that.

    I did the math after I purchased maybe 10 pieces and decided to quit. I'll never be able to afford a home to display them if spend like this... and my spendin is already out of control. I'll pick a few key pieces but other than that... I'm done. They're really really cool though.

    I didn't see the platform cover on there, though I know not everyone got that. We also have two of the omnibuses and horse-drawn carriages because there are two on actual Main Street.

    This is definitely an investment, not just a toy. We've been collecting this series for almost 5 years now.

    We also have the WDW castle, but that was a gift.

    omg...I did NOT have to see that.....esp. knowing I paid retail or PAP for SOOOO very few of the pieces. We must agree to NEVER EVER EVER let my husband see this thread!

    And that plexiglass cover ran about $300 if you picked up.
    Just countin' the days til the next visit!

    Hey its not that bad if you really just want to count Main Street. You can take the following off the list

    Pirates of the Carribean $345
    Haunted Mansion $295
    Mark Twain Riverboat $210
    Jungle Cruise $295
    Haunted Mansion light display box $25
    Pirates of the Carribean display box $25

    That right there is $1195 plus tax (and lets face it, I know I have 3 Mansion light boxes and 2 Pirates, one for each scene)

    Ohhh yeah, also, sales tax at Disneyland is 7.75% so takes another $66 or so off your price.

    Thank you so much for posting this. It makes me feel a little bit better that I haven't invested in this collection...yet. Maybe one day.

    I'm still crying . I didn't even count the ebay premiums I paid and the shipping costs. Maybe I need to join an OA (Olszewski Anonymous) group.

    "O.A. is a program of total abstinence. Members simply stay away from one Olszewski piece, one day at a time. Sobriety is maintained through sharing experience, strength and hope at group meetings and through the suggested Twelve Steps for recovery from Olszewskism."

    All I have to say is Goddess Bless the Character Warehouse, Company D and CM 40% off days for making my Olszewski addiction affordable.

    I'm with you on that, Jules. Never could have done it at full price.
