Never serious about anything, unless it's Volks.

I've loved robots since a found a discarded transformer lost on a beach as a child. I've always appreciated old diecast figures, although I don't own too many myself. I am a fan of both old and new robot cartoons.

My current collection of modern gokin include Aoshima's Neo Getter Robo (black), CM's GoShogun and Sankanoh, and Yamato's Danguard Ace.

My current collection of classic gokin include ST Dynarobo, two ST Laserions (Japanese and American releases), DX Laserion, and a Voltron of some model that has seen better days.

On the plastic front I have a Toybox Nekobot a surprisingly nice KO Mightgaine, and a troop of Glyos figures.

The pride of my collection is, Voltron "Trapped on Jungle Planet," a 24 page book and tape. It's still sealed in it's original packaging!

I collect, read, and learn anything that has to do with Gundam, Votoms, Macross, Super Robots of the 1970's,and Roman History. I guess I should include Saint Seiya in this list now.

I'm currently an ME student in Georgia, who spends prolly too much money on toys as it is. I've been a fan of robots since I was about 2 years old, when I watched SD Gundam for the first time. This was my first anime exposure as I crossed the threshold into merchandise hell. Since then I've collected a lot of things, mostly robots though. I was very big into the real robot genre in my teens, until I found out about Go Nagai. Since then I think I may be an even bigger super robot fan instead. There's something so... primal and feral about it that's just incredibly awesome. Super Robot Wars, Kamen Rider, and Gundam are probably some of my favorite things, when it comes to shows, video games, and toys of course.

I've been a toy whore from the day I was born. Probably even in the womb. I wet the carpet when I was three cuz I was playing with my new FisherPrice town set and I was too excited to stop and go pee in the toilet.

I was born in 1971 and the world of toys was an amazing, beautiful place. My grandmother was on the "sucker list" (as my father called it) at our local King Norman's toy store, meaning they would call her the minute they got a shipment of Star Wars figures. She'd buy two of each, one for her collection(which ultimately became the back-up set for my lost or broken figures) and one for me(she was a big sci-fi/horror buff which is probably where I get it from).

I loved that King Norman's. One of the earliest dreams I can remember was going into King Norman's and they had a life size section of the Millennium Falcon that you could put together and play in.

I'll never forget walking into Woolworth's and seeing Greedo, Hammerhead, and WalrusMan hanging on the pegs all in a row and nearly pissing myself. Between Woolworth's, Walgreen's, and King Norman's, my action figure selection was plentiful. I would get much of my toy info from my older cousin who got all the really primo stuff. They were pretty rich. The big Mego Star Trek sets and old G.I. Joe 12 inch stuff. Tons of Micronauts. I spent hours in their pool with the Joe Submarine attacking it with that rubber giant squid. That was one of my favorite toys. My Father would take my Grandmother and I to China Town in SF and we picked up stuff like Go Lion and God Sigma.

Nowadays I focus heavily on robots. I'd say my collection today is about 90% robot. There are some cyborgs and "humans in suits" sprinkled in there with a dash of vehicles and 1/1 scale weapons.

My collection has gone through many phases and there was a point when I had toys dripping from every horizontal surface in my place. I always had minimalist tendencies(which is a dilemma for any collector as you all know) so a few years ago I started purging down to the absolute favorites. It's so hard though, with gorgeous, amazing stuff coming out all the time now. We really live in a new toy renaissance. I gotta be really choosy nowadays so I don't loose my mind from clutter and go broke.
