I'll keep this as simple as possible...

I pretty much collect action figures between the years of 1977-86. Don't really believe I have anything outside of those years. I don't think that's by design, that's pretty much the windows of when I collected. I also don't collect anything after the point where I originally stopped collecting(playing with) action figures as a kid. Also, I don't collect anything I wasn't familiar with at the time the product was current, i.e., If I didn't have some type of experience with it, owning it, friends owning it, or at the very least taking the package off of store shelves and checking it out, I don't tend to have any interest in it.

Nothing against the collectors that do, but I really have no interest in reissues and new products(Funko Pop, etc.) Things outside of my "window" just don't do anything for me, no matter how much of a fan I am of the original line. My interests switched from action figures in 1986 to N.E.S., pro wrestling, and heavy metal in 1987, so that's basically when and how my window was created. I basically grew up, and while the stuff I had was still awesome to me, that's where my interest in future action figure lines(and cartoons) stopped.

Some of my favorite lines to collect are WWF LJN 8 inch and Bendies, MOTU, Transformers, M.A.S.K., Star Wars pre-90's, AWA Remco, and Thundercats. I am interested in G.I. Joe and Voltron, put I've got my plate full and will eventually get around to those. Besides, those are a little pricey anyways and I feel it's best to tackle them when I can focus on them only.

Besides action figures, I'm also an avid record collector, a retro game hunter, and a cassette lover. While my collecting may seem scattered across different subjects, I don't get a feeling that it's all separated into different categories as I'm simply collecting the stuff I'm familiar with as a youth.
