Ever since I was a kid, I guess I have always been a collector. I played with just about every 80s toy that you can think of, from G.I.Joe, Transformers, Star Wars, to little known lines such as Eagle Force, Rambo, and Sectaurs. I kept a majority of them when I got older, I even have my original Flagg carrier (with a few replacement parts I needed). While I had them, I never really considered it a hobby. That changed one day at a flea market. I was looking around outside(it's where you find the best deals), and came across an older lady that was selling a ton of stuff. She had a huge box of her son's old toys laying out. Transformers, Joes, Thundercats, He-man, you name it. I would say 85% had all of the original weapons. I asked her how much, she said that I could have it all for $20. I thought to myself, I dunno what I am going to do with this stuff, but I loved it as a kid, so its worth that. Ever since then the bug got me,and I have expanded to collect anything that interests me. I mostly collect ANYTHING 80's. That was the best childhood someone could ever have, and when I go into my room, it brings back SO many memories. Before collecting action figures, I had a lot of depression issues. Since starting this, I no longer have problems, and this actually helps me out on a rainy day.I also share my pictures with co-workers, and I get the same reaction 99% of the time....DUDE!!! I REMEMBER THAT! I LOVED THOSE!!! My collection has now gotten to a point where I only need a few pieces here and there to complete certain lines, and I am mostly in "part" mode, where I need a few accessories and parts to complete certain items. I hope everyone enjoys this hobby as much as I do!
