I started collecting toys with having no clear theme in mind: A SOTA Toys Sagat; Marvel Legends Capt. America, Cable, Ice Man and Colossus; MOTU He-Man and Mekanek; SWE3 Grievous, Obi-Wan, and Anakin; and a Wave1 Kingdom Come Batman. As time passed, I started focusing on Superman. My first one is a prototype Justice League Superman from the Jollibee Kids Meal toy line. I got this one fortunately because it JKM was my main account when I worked in McCann-Erickson here in the Philippines a few years ago. I currently have 10 figures and my top favorite is the Dark Knight Returns Superman.
During a break in one of my post-production works in HongKong for a tv commercial, I visited the local Toy-R-Us store and saw the SOC line. It was there I saw my one true childhood toy love: GX-31 / Voltes V. I wanted to buy it right there and then but because of the limited amount of dollars that I had, I held back and promised that I would get it back home, someday.
Last June, 2008, I FINALLY BOUGHT IT. I also bought the Secret Toyz Camp Big Falcon / Operational Base a couple of months later. Now both toys complement and eclipse my Superman collection.
I collect what I like. Gundam? GI Joe? Transformers? Heck, even LEGO. If I like it, then I'll try to get it.
Rob. Live in WA. Shows I like: Saint Seiya, Bleach, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, Zyuranger, Dairanger(sort of), Kakuranger, Transformers G1 and the films(I guess?) Fairy Tail, fate/stay night, Inuyasha, Death Note Clamps' X, Cardcaptor Sakura, Samurai Troopers, Devil May Cry.
Games: Just about anything Legend of Zelda. Most of the older Mario games, Dishonored, Transformers: War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron, Destroy All Humans(I like the second better), Tomba, the original Spyro Games.
I started collecting robots when I was very young. First ones in my collection were Shoguns, Raydeen, Gaiking, and Danguard. My parents got some crazy deals on a ton of Shogun toys in the late 70s early 80s when King Norman's (Old toy store like Kaybee) went out of business. Shoguns, Dougrams, and some other rare stuff like Batrain. Then like a dumb ass when I was in my early 20s I started selling all of them on Ebay. Now I am trying to reclaim my youth by repurchasing all of them. Also collecting the SOC series from Bandai. I make yearly trips to Taiwan for work and get to Robot shop.
I´m Italian (so I like robots).
I lost all my childhood toys (lots of transformers, popy, godaikin ) when I moved out of my parents place back 10 years ago...(or I would be rich now).
After so long I recently slowly started collecting some mechas here and there. I like real robots, mostly - Gundams, Votoms, Macross. I also like the old Super Robots and at times collect the occasional SOC.
I´m by no means a "pro" of collecting, I only have a few pieces and none of extreme value, still I hope my kids will be proud of daddy when they get older :)
Malaysian, Kamen Rider fans, S.H.Figuarts collector
I collect just a little of about everything; toys are cool.
