Help me choose what is essential and what can wait!

Help me choose what is essential and what can wait!

I'm diving into Post Production (games included) from mostly doing music (recording, mixing). I've put together a sort of wishlist for gear I'd want/need for this work (recording, mixing, sound design, etc.). I can finally afford to buy some of this but not all.

Here's a list of what I currently have:

Yamaha HS80m monitors
Avid Artist Mix
Apogee Duet 2
Pro Tools 10/11
Logic Pro 9/X
Kensington Expert Trackball
3x SM57
1x Beta52
2x Sterling Audio ST31 Matched Pair
1x Blue Baby Bottle
1x Senn MKH416
Mic stands/clips
Komplete 8
NI: Damage

Here's the list of gear/plugins/software that I'm looking into:

Behritone ($130)
Sound Forge ($300)
Waves Gold ($800)
SoundToys Bundle ($250)
IR Reverb - Altiverb ($600)
Izotope Trash (Distortion) ($250)
The Glue (Compressor) ($100)
NI: Kinetic Metal ($100)
Fabfilter Pro Series ($300 or $600)
Rode NT4 ($530)
Rhode Blimp ($300)
Rhode Boom Pole ($150)
Zoom H6 ($400)

Sound Libraries:
Sound Ideas 6000 ($995)
Hollywood Edge Premiere Edition ($750)

I'm wondering what people think would be best to buy now and what would be best to hold off on?

Also, definitely would like any more recommendations for gear/plugins.

Thanks so much!
