I have been a toy collector for a long time with some of my earliest exposure to robots being Transformers: The Movie and Macross: Clash of the Bionoids.
I collect mainly robots and a few odd items here and there (monsters, die-cast sports cars, etc). I like basically anything vintage from Transformers to other 80's/90's giant mecha series and yes, even Beast Wars.
My name is Josh, and I'm a Technical Communication major at SPSU in GA. I absolutely LOVE toys. The only thing I love more than toys is bigger toys. I'm a fan of all sorts of things, including robots, giant robots, super robots, giant transforming super robots, androids, mechs, transforming mechs, men in spandex suits, men in rubber suits, men in rubber or spandex suits fighting other men in rubber or spandex suits, and My Little Pony.
I collect all sorts of wonderful trinkets, but I'm most fond of my Transformers and Kamen Rider toys. I love S.H. Figuarts (Please don't cheap out on us, Bandai), Figmas, and all sorts of action figure lines. I've recently discovered the wonders of S.I.C. Kiwami Tamashii toys. Forgive me if I'm rambling.
I love toys.
Yo, guys, VIR here.
I'm a college student who loves toys: need I say more?
I started collecting by definition in middle school with Star Wars figures. What started with a single Han Solo ended up with 50+ Star Wars figures and multitudes upon multitudes of Transformers, Joes, Riders, and what not.
I started collecting because of that one Han Solo. I wanted the only main cast, but then, well... we see how well I controlled myself. :B
Just a dorky metalhead. Got into collecting about 12 years ago but only within the last 3 years have I considered it a hobby. I have alot of loose figures ( even a knockoff plastic Combattra and a knockoff of Red Geist) but most of what I collect stays in the box for the time being. I would really like to own Maketoys Giant,SOC Godmarz, Mastermind Creation's Feral Rex set, and um Gobots puzzler among all that is out there. I loved robots since I was little. Really havent had much of a chance to get familiar with Macross, Yuusha Brave or anything like that.
"The farming model maker! Tends to his cattle by day and by night he builds Gunpla!"
Self proclaimed fearless genius. Maker of bad jokes in the comments. Has a beard. Shoots first.
Don't let my short list of recent review fool you, I've been here a while. If it's a model kit or has the word "Gundam" after it, I probably built it.
An avid fan of science fiction in general, anime in particular and giant robots more than anything, I dabble in collecting and Gundam model building when not at work or in college.
While I'm always open for a rousing exchange of ideas and respect that different fans love different things, I won't stand for any slander against GaoGaiGar. There, I said it. ^_^
My name is Carlo, I'm definitely a fan of toys even since I was a kid. I do have a variety of toy that I do collected and put in a safe room. But all those toys, is now a collection for me, it's been too long for me since the last time that I do play with it. Seriously, I bought them with my own money but I do not play with it. The thing here is that I am also busy on all working as part-time also doing some research for my dissertation. It's really a tough time for me to balance my time in school, work and inside the house. Seems like whenever I have a free time. I do end sleeping the whole day just to regain my energy. Sometimes, it's a bit frustrating that I can't do things that I want the most juts because I do need to think of what is something more important for me. I guess I just have to stick on my goal to finish school first.
I mostly collect Gundam and various other Japanese mecha toys. I got a lot of MSIA figures along with SOC toys. Robots are my primary concern.
I collect what I like. Gundam? GI Joe? Transformers? Heck, even LEGO. If I like it, then I'll try to get it.
My name is Tim Lee and I'm a HUGE toy collector. I been collecting for a long time, but I started collecting seriously about 2002. I love Max Factory Figma,Medicom Rah,Play Arts Kai and a little bit of random toys here and there. I also do toy reviews on YouTube under the profile (https://www.facebook.com/timothy.lee.712), You may or may not know me from there. I'm a concept and tattoo artist as well, that loves anime.
I am a child of the 80's, and love the Star Wars, Transformers, GI Joe, Gobots, Lego, Centurions, Voltron, Robotech, Tranzor Z/Mazinger Z, and many more toy/cartoon/comic character lines when growing up. I don't believe that my experiences growing up could have been any better during that timeframe. My focus right now is mostly Star Wars with a bit of Transformers MPC's and Robotech items mixed in. I enjoy quality toys expensive and not, but truly love a well thought out and executed product.
I collect many different forms of toys. I collect Power Rangers, Super Sentai, Ninja Turtles, Pokemon, Transformers, Marvel figures, and many many more!
Galaxy Express 999, Space Battleship Yamato, Captain Harlock, most anything Leiji Matsumoto. Mazinger Z, Macross & Robotech, Godaikins, Transformers, Henshin Cyborg.
I also have unhealthy obsessions with Mazinger Z, Aphrodai, Mad Max, and the '77 Star Wars cantina.
I also collect: Star Wars, Fantastic Four, DC, instruments and LPs.
collectors who collect only for monetary value;
fans who think that being a fan a long time fan entitles them to something;
Collectors who think that what they collect is better than someone else.
