I had taken a break from figures for a while once, much like you did. When I got back I was like... wow I'm really out of the loop! I didn't even know where to begin.
I had hoped the break would help me cut down PO-ing too much, but by now I'm right back where I was again... or worse... orz. XDD oh well. (maybe another break in is order.)
I hope you have fun getting back on mfc, and maintain some financial balance!
welcome back :)
