As the Community Manager of DASH Action Figures, and long-time collector that I am, you might expect my story to be complex and exciting. But my collecting story started much like anyone's: on the floor. To the average person, a floor is nothing more than something to stand on. But to action figure lovers who grew up with their toys, a floor becomes a whole new world. It becomes home to limitless imagination and untold landscapes. It can be a bustling city street, a desolate apocalyptic wasteland, a wrestling mat, or even the long lost city of Atlantis. Our floors were given life by our figures, and our figures were given life by us. I like to think that my figures even gave me a little life along the way too.  So a normal person might stand on a floor, but my hopes and my imaginations and my fantasies all stood on that same floor. As we grow up our action figures move from the floor to crowded closets and bulging toy boxes, then they're hidden away from shameful teenage eyes, only occasionally dusted off for a memory or two. Then somewhere down the line, our figures take us by the nostalgia and consume us once again. We're taken back to those ancient battlefields and limitless opportunities. We're given a second look into the life of our once-great friends, and that's when our collections truly begin.Like many, I collect what I loved as a kid. I also like action figures just for being toys, and find myself taking in strays that seem to need a home. So my collection might seem varied, a little random, and even somewhat senseless. That's the way kids buy toys, and I still try to do the same today.Thanks for taking the time to read, and I hope you enjoy spending some time with my collection. I also hope you take the time to share yours with me.

    Corey, great collection and thanks for the hard work on DASH. There are those of us out there that really appreciate it.

    I see that you are willing to trade Agent Helix. I'm sending you a PM about that now.

      Thanks for the kind words. Everyone makes it so much fun that's it's barely like work at all!

      And I forgot all about Helix!! The best thing to come out of RoC (IMHO). I'll have to go find her, and I'll keep an eye out for your message. We need more new Joes!

      Thanks! It's a print from a fantastic artist named Robert Burden. He creates incredible (and huge) paintings based on vintage figures.

      You can see more of his stuff here: "www.robertburden.net"

      It looks like you can still get the Foot Soldier here: "www.robertburden.net/#print_foot.html"

    I love how you've mixed your figures with prints and other items. Doesn't look cluttered and makes them pop more. Also, the site improvements look great. I was an early member who dropped off a little while ago. It may be time to rejoin the party. Well played, Corey. Well played.

    I have never seen someone who collects just like me. I mean, me & you would be best friends if we lived near each other. Our collections are SO similar I could be looking at pics of my collection and not know any difference. I have a little of almost everything I see in your pics and a lot of some of it. The absolute clintcher was the Mario, Luigi and the Finn,Love it

    Awesome collection. I will upload pics soon of mine.

      That's awesome! Glad someone else out there buys a little of everything. I just like too many things, so I can't limit myself to only Marvel, or only Transformers, or only Star Wars!

      Drop me a comment when your collection is up, I'd love to see it.
