It took one action figure that was brought to my attention by my then 9 year old son.  An original X-Men Colossus hanging from one of the "Collectibles" Mall carts. It was being sold for over $20.00 at the time.  WOW..........if a toy that costs $5.00 can be sold later for 4 times the value.....I am IN!!! So my son and I started collecting......first it was the X-men.....then Marvel.......then DC..........SPAWN entered the picture with those AWESOME details.......and so it went.Once we began it became a family affair and turned into a passion for collecting and not a way to make a quick buck. We tried to get the entire set including any variations....which were few and far between at the beginning. Then X-Men started having full sets of variations.  So a set of 5 became 10.....that got to be expensive.  We continued to collect X-Men util they began to reissue the older collection as Marvel Universe with different paintings on some. We did the same with SPAWN and tried to with some of the DC.Now Some 21 years later -Birthdays, Christmas, special trips, flea markets, garage sales early morning trips to the store when they just stocked their toy department. Thatis how we gathered such a large collection. Today we buy what we like and not worry about the sets.  The options available now are less but more expensive.  So whole collections are out of the question.  BUT......If I EVER win the lottery.......WATCH OUT!!!!!!
