Loaded!!!!  That's funny.  If turds were all of a sudden worth something, my butt-hole would seal up!!!  The Tron figs are the only real problem for me.  I spotted the newer versions on eBay, from a seller that's local.  The vintage are tough.  What burns me, is I used to have them all!!!  My very fortunate buddy, the one I've mentioned before, has alot of the Battlestar, Buck Rogers, Indiana Jones, and Clash of the Titans loose.  Maybe that's why I'm always broke.  I spotted a Kraken w/ box on eBay this morning, but he's already about $60.

I often times wish I could collect a few more lines than I am able to, but for now its just a little bit:

Vintage Star Wars 3 3/4": Loose, complete figures
Modern Star Wars 3 3/4": Figures, Beasts, Vehicles - Only the ones I like, not a completist, I buy them carded, but I open them as soon as I get them :)
Marvel Legends: I just got into this line, only collecting the "X-Men" ones.
State Quarters: My grandma started me on this collection, and gives me all the ones that come out from each year at Christmas :)

I've been "tempted" by a few other lines along the way, but haven't bought into them yet (we couldn't afford for me to collect something else I don't think, plus we don't have the room).  Other lines I almost got into include LOTR, the rest of the Marvel Legends, Gi Joe, Simpsons, and the new Masters of the Universe.  Just so many great toys nowadays ;).

I had to share this, but over the last 2 nights I've opened over 80 of my Simpsons figures.  I'll finish it up tonight, and then figure out what I need to complete my collection. I've decided I really dont like how much space the enviornments take up.

I've narrowed down my collection since last post..tremendously. I sold all my Simpsons, sold 9 Marvel Legends, and some other stuff.

Now it's just Star Wars + LOTR.

Harry Potter - Dueling Club Harry (The only HP fig I'll ever own)

McFarlane - Neo, Trinity, + both Predys. Soon to own TX + Casket Termy

No more room for anything else.. :P

Modern and vintage Star Wars, just about everything but 12"
Vintage RAH GI Joe RAH, pretty much from 82-89
G1 Transformers and PVCs, the only collection I'm equally obsessed with as I am for Star Wars.
Lord of the Rings, loose and carded. Haven't decided on Armies of Middle-earth yet.
Marvel Legends, but only the characters I like or know something about.
Kiss figures, but McF seems to be done with those. Looking forward to Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix figures.

Also, I collect vinyl albums from lots and lots of bands. Something about the album art. It's just too damn small on CD booklets. Especially the UK version of Hendrix' 'Electric Ladyland.' Hubba.

I find it great to see that people who collect G.I. Joe often just went for the '82-'89 waves.  It's nice to see so many others who loved that line from those years.

It's a shame what they've done to Joe now, but it's still one of Hasbro's biggest cash cows.  I did a large termpaper on the toy industry last semester, and Joe was (surprisingly to me) one of Hasbro's top brands.  It's really amazing what staying power that line has had...  I just miss the look/greatness that was the ARAH line from when it first came out.  

I had a mess of cobra soldiers, grunts, flashes, etc...  I loved those original figures.

I quit in 1987 around the time of such great figures as Big Boa and Crystal Ball



Things got really dumb and I finally just quit

How were the figs in 1988 and 1989?

Ridiculous, especially with crap like Tiger Force, whatever that space gimmick was, G.I. Joe Extreme, etc.

The last Joe toy I owned was the Stealth fighter. Think I got Rolling Thunder w/ Armadillo as well at the same time.

I'm another GI Joe 3 3/4" 1982-89 collector.  The problem with alot of figs after 1987 is that they started coming out with Neon colored weapons, and started making mass 2nd, 3rd, & 10th versions/remolds of the same characters.  Seems they ran out of good ideas and used their crappy ones.  I've only got three figs after 87 and those are Iron Grenadier, Night Force Shockwave, and Night Viper.

I also collect:

Vintage 3 3/4" Star Wars figures.  Some POTF2 stuff too.  
Vintage Tron Figures(none yet, just starting)
Vintage Lord of the Rings figures(also none yet, just starting)
New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Stressed out?  Poop.  It'll make you feel better.
