(Technically the forum began on ProBoards in 2002, but sideshowcollectors.com wasn't registered until 2004. And I can't find any reference to anything earlier than 2004 - so we're celebrating 2014 as as the 10 year anniversary.)

Please note the fine print:

20 years for sideshow and 10 years for this site, wow, only got started in this hobby for just under 2 years now, would be cool to see like the best piece picked out from year to year to see a historical progression of quality' because for the short time i've been around i can't believe how this stuff keeps getting better :)

I joined back in 2006 when Sideshow first announced the 12" Star Wars line…
I lurked a lot at first, but became more active as figures were slowly released!
Wow… 8 years ago for me!!

Pretty kewl. I think I joined up in Oct of 2004.

Brant Bridges pointed me here around 2003 time to stop me pestering him about upcoming Bond figures on the old Action figure news messageboard.It s been a blast.I do nt post as often as some because I do nt have anything particularly funny or witty to say but Im here everyday checking the posts.My fellow freaks have made me howl with laughter and feel genuine sadness at the passing of DGT Woodward and Diane Kamahele.The quality of all collectibles has improved a hundredfold,it s been really fun too watching figures that were oft requested and shot down supposedly unobtainable licences(though nobody ever really knew why!) coming to fruition in the shape of breathtaking 1/6 figures(Reeve Superman,1989 Batman and Batmobile,Arnold Terminator),in fact theres only really one left now-My beloved Connery Bond with Thunderball Rocketbelt and 1/6 DB5!!
Seriously,Brant,Dave,Evilface,A-Dev,The Josh or whoever the Hell you are now, amongst a cast of thousands thank you for making this place so much fun to visit and heres the the next 10!!

I joined April 23, 2004. That was back in the days of the friendly rivalry between Sideshow Freaks and Lord of the Rings Guide and since I originally signed up at LotrG it delayed my registration here as my loyalty was conflicted. :lol

Which reminds me, it's almost my 10 year anniversary with Sideshow Freaks. Dave, can I expect some Diamond Jewlery?
