I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

...or maybe I'm the bitter one?!  Oh no.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:32 PM)

And I don't even mean that everyone should love it all. But it does seem to bring the angrier ones in from the lurking.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

It's these reveals that always remind me how exceptionally bitter a large portion of toy collectors are on other forums.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 July 2017 - 07:06 PM)

SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 06:03 PM)

On SDCC stuff...I'm disappointed, but not surprised, at the lack of the actual KIDS toys among all the toys for us old men

isn't "Blessed by Satan" an oxymoron?

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 05:11 PM)

basically the sunscreen has to be blessed by satan.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 05:07 PM)

@Dracula what SPF do you nees to not get turned into dust in the sun?

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 04:42 PM)

That's typical summers for where I live. bleh

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

Isn't it fun when it's so humid, it feels like your eyeballs are sweating?

I wasn't starting a flame war. That's a real scientific term for natural occuriring sex change. ;) As for Anne Ramsey like actress - would make the show lot more fun. :p

Let's please not continue this line of discussion. We obviously aren't mature enough to do so.

I assure you all, I am not one of those "Mint in Package" collectors. But when I thought I was going to move a few years ago, I packed my collection away and stopped opening anything new I bought due to the uncertainty at the time. That seemed like a good idea, but the move did not go through and I kept collecting anyway so it kind of spiraled into, well, this:











There are things going all the way back to Energon here but these were all acquired within the past 3 years, so I haven't been hoarding them for that long. In fact, much of this is just from the past year or two, and a lot of this was purchased for below retail prices. I have purchased second hand loose toys as well, so it's not like I wanted this to happen.

I'm a little disappointed that it got to this point, as I was always one of those open toy advocates. But I have to say that it's actually been a lot of fun to collect and display these boxed toys. I can't explain why, but I've enjoyed it. Having these on my shelves in my office made for a cool set up when everything I had before was packed up for the move.

Now, as it turns out, I am moving in a few weeks so I will have to open most of this stuff just to save space. I figured it would be cool to take some photos of everything before I dug in. It's going to be like Christmas morning every day for awhile.

So, what should I open first?

Sayonara.

I see that you have a MOSC Universe Frostbite.

I want to, no, I demand to, take it off your hands, because it is the only act that will restore balance to the universe.

Chaos shall reign as usual then. I've opened everything, put them all in plastic bags, and packed them up.

It took DAYS and I wasn't really able to play since time is of the essence. But when I move and get a new house, then the fun will begin.

Heh! That would have been a good idea to have taken a picture of the wreckage pile, though it likely would have consumed us all had it not been taken care of already. It was disposed of in batches as I was opening so the pile never got too out of hand.

The only things I didn't open were the 4 boxed leaders (will open eventually), the Battle in Space set (don't really need to open it, bought it just to have) and the special Japanese Deluxe Animated Prime.

You have an unopened Windcharger.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU MAN?!

That one, that is the one that must be opened first (if it's not too late for that), just to atone for the sin of not opening your toys especially the hard-to-come-by ones. icon-fire.gif

Ha ha! I was lucky enough to find a Windcharger at retail, but I wasn't expecting to find one or even seriously looking, so I in wasn't in any hurry to tear into it.

He's opened now and packed away with the rest of my stuff as it's all moving this weekend. Cool little figure but not worthy of all the hype the fandom has put into it.

It's nice to know I'm not the only one whose "hoarding" has gone a little unchecked. Now that I have cleared off one of my shelves, I have room to display stuff again, and I'm slowly getting throughmy pile.

Still a way to go, though.

Congrats on getting the job dong Ninja!
