Fairly new to collecting. Have always been a fan of the genre of Giant Robots and mechs. Grew up watching Tranzor Z (Mazinger Z), Voltron, Transformers (g1), Go-bots, and other late 70's and 80's cartoons. Also huge fan of Star Wars. Collected a large amount of the Kenner figures from the late 90's/early 2000's. Only recently (2012) got into learning about Gundam and have been actively trying to get my hands on a few Gunpla kits to build but not easy to do locally in my rural small country town in the US.

I'm also a huge computer gamer. Love MMORPG's. Have been playing EverQuest II since Sept of 2005. Played Star Wars Galaxies from 2003 to 2005, and played Dark Age of Camelot from 1998 to 2003. I tend to stick with 1 MMORPG at a time. I do play other games frequently on my PC and PS3.

My interests are many as I used to collect all kinds of anime-related stuff. I say "used to" because recently I have become more specific with what I buy. Oh, I still like seeing all of the new stuff that comes out but, I can't just buy everything anymore (I'm running out of room) That said, I am still an avid collector of Macross mecha and everything Cutie Honey-related... Models? I have a bad habit of buying Gundam models only to have them sit in storage so that they can be made...someday...Then there are the conventions... I LOVE going to conventions... Both anime and sci-fi so that I can meet other fans, take pics of cosplayers and bask in the geeky glow of otakudom/fandom.

Child of the 70s, who always loved his Shogun Warror robots, Micronauts and Japanese cartoons most of all. Anime & import mail order of the 80s ruled my formative years, alongside Dr Who and other British TV on PBS. I'm a veteran non-mainstream media & toy nerd...

Former CollectionDX site-stalker that admittedly has WAY too many toys for my age. I may not set records with my collection but it is only because I am not filthy rich.

My geekdom is not just relegated to toys or collectibles though.

I'm a laid-back guy whose into Transformers, Macross, Mospeada, Marvel Comics, Indie Comics, & other mecha shows that's worth my heart's interests. I only play video games on occasion & I'm only addicted to one franchise which is the Metal Slug Series. Sadly, I don't play RPGs because I'm not good at these kind of games

I've been a gigantic Transformers fan since the 1980s cartoon first aired as a kid. I only had a few smaller toys as my parents didn't have a lot of money, but I had some friends that had Optimus Prime and the Seekers a lot of others. When Generation 2 came around I asked for Optimus Prime for my birthday.

I later became borderline obsessed with it as an adult, and I've bought & sold a large variety of Transformers. Lately I've also gotten into King of Braves stuff, and as a kid I was intrigued by Chogokin but never owned anything in that line.

Lately I've been selling a lot of my collection to cover medical bills but I'm holding onto my favorite stuff until I can't afford it anymore.

I collect mainly Jumbo Shoguns, but I have recently branched out into model kits, autographed comics, and die casts.
