Nope x2. While I find it pretty funny, I'll never buy it. Kinda ruins the whole tree for me.

Look at the price if you buy all three of the ones "frequently bought together". They could probably get this group to turn those numbers upside down and still shell out.

I don't have a car. 

Where I draw the line is iPhone cases, stickers, keychains, towels, oven mits, coasters, etc.  These types of things are totally superfluous and obviously a waste of money.  I do own a mug (probably won't buy any more, although they are tempting).  I do buy magazines (usually the ones that have mulltiple interviews, essays and pictures in them), DVDs, the occasional toy or game, shirts (although I have enough shirts until these wear out--I think I have about 5), books, cd's and vinyl.  I also love box sets.  Also have a hoodie and some buttons (badges).  Oh, and I also have a 1964 Beatles zipper bag for pens and pencils.

I also group my Yoko stuff with The Beatles.

I have almost everything except the shirts and the vinyl on a Beatles book case (five shelves) which is almost filled up.  There is a bit of Elvis on the bottom shelf.  I was going to photograph it but I think you can only post photos with URLs?

I also wear glasses that look almost exactly like these...Mine are darker and the bridge over the nose is more curved (and mine are not "John Lennon" collection glasses, they are made by Seraphin).  I almost went for the wire frame Granny glasses but I wanted something different.

 

These are mine:

Yeah, you're right. Oh, well, it was a fun thought while it lasted.

I'm like this too, whenever I get money I spend it all on Beatles stuff. I only buy music, movies and books though. I have cups, keychains, ornaments, decks of cards, other things like that, but those were all gifts.

Since only been about five months since I first started becoming obsessed, all I've really purchased are the albums. Believe me, I totally would love to have way more merchandise, but I don't have a job because I'm too busy with tennis, and I don't think My parents would see the same value in those things (thankful already they bought so many albums for me). I will have to wait until my birthday, then make my list. Oh, and when I  go to a university I decided I'm going to have a myriad of posters...

My bills currently keep me from wasting much money, but a good deal of my meager spending cash has gone to Beatles stuff. Mostly getting the albums again, and that copy of Yellow Submarine I found on DVD recently. I tend to stay away from other merchandise, but people inevitably get me that stuff as gifts. You won't hear me complaining. a-hard-days-night-john-1

I have a shirt, a few posters, some books, and lots of other random [practically useless] stuff I've gotten as gifts. I also have a few vinyl albums, including Magical Mystery Tour and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. However, I can restrain myself. I don't feel the need to buy every Beatley thing I see. If I did that, I'd probably have more than 20 shirts and 30 posters.

^ Wow... that's just um... I can't think of a word to describe it... I just can't imagine that in my bedroom...

I'm really good with this. I only buy stuff directly from shops. Nothing via the internet. Also, I'm not a person who goes completely berzerk when she sees anything Beatles related. I'm pretty matter of fact (wtf isn't there a proper english word for the word I want to use) so I'm not a person to buy Beatles pens or stuff like that

Just to toss a few possible words out there: selective, discriminating, discerning, judicious

Here in the states, you can't find shops that have a much Beatles memorabilia.  The R&R HOF is only 3 hours away, and I'm sure they have something (when I was there I didn't even look, I had no cash).  Maybe in the bigger cities, but my city&county have under a million, there may be a 2nd hand music shop that has some Beatles down by University.  Pretty much have to buy over the internet.  Now a Beatles calendar, I might actually hang that one on the wall (I got a Norman Rockwell one from the pharmacist (chemist) but it never seems to make it to the wall.

Half of what I say is meaningless...

Music and books are what I usually stick to when it comes to The Fab Four stuff, although I did get The Beatles Rock Band set when it came out 9/9/09. My friend got me the four action figures of the Yellow Submarine set back in the late 90's as a birthday gift. And maybe two t-shirts, I bought at Hot Topic long time ago.

However, if there is any Beatle related purchase in the foreseeable future, it would be the Ludwig Fab 4 Classic Maple drumset in the Black Oyster Pearl finish of course. Then get a Beatles bass drum head to put on it. Only thing holding me back on that is room. Got two sets (one Ludwig Vistalite, ala Bonham, and Roland e-drums) already taking up space.

That's impressive though, I pine for a Vistalite set, although I'd probably have to get shut of my Superclassic, sadly champagne sparkle, not Oyster Black......beggars can't be choosers and all that.

One part of this awesome display of Beatles love was given to me, and I purchased the other two to go with it.

I can't remember if I mentioned it before, but I bought these shoes for Ted's third birthday (in May). He's going to *love* them.

I too have the disease!

  Now I've decided to buy the Original UK LP's, since that is where it all began. This latest binge started last month when I had to buy the 2012 Re-issue set.  Before I opened it, I saw the reviews on youtube and decided this set wasn't good enough, as it isn't true enough to the originals.

Now I'm trying to sell it (still unopened), and other Beatles stuff/CD's to help pay for this expensive habit of mine.  Who needs drugs when you have the Beatles!!!!!

I have all the original t-shirts, and solo much more stuff, but my fave is the 1991 Hamilton figurine set with them and their instruments.  Also found Vox amps that are the same size to this set, and I have a nice little mini stage.

From the Vans website, which I linked to. They've got loads of different Beatles designs, most of them horrible. Good for toddlers though.
