My collecting hobby started in an interesting way not too long ago.  My wife and I went to a community garage sale for which the proceeds from the sale were going to be donated to the earthquake victims in Haiti.After walking around for a while, we did not see anything of interest so we started to make our way back to our car. As we proceeded to our car, we came upon a booth where the owner just "happened" to put out a box of action figure as we were passing by - I think it was a divine encounter. I decided to take a look and since it was for a good cause, I bought the box of thirty action figures of different kinds for thirty dollars ($30.00).When we got home I started taking an inventory of what was in the box and to my pleasant surprise, I realized that some of the figures were worth more than twice as what I paid for the entire box. All the figures were still sealed in their original packaging and to name a few, there was the Lost Planet extreme condition suit ptx-40a, Wild C.A.T.S Voodoo, Activision's Prototype. and a few Marvel diecast mini Fantastic four two pack figures to name a few.So needless to say I was hooked.Presently, I collect only vintage toys from when I was a kid and before. To name a few, original 12" GI Joe figures, original Mego super hero 8" figures, and some Star Wars items as well.So that's my story and I'm sticking to it.Thanks for taking the time to read this.Joel
