    Default The Changing face of your collection..

    Over the years my collection has changed serveral times. Company's, media, size, themes.... everything has changed to some degree.

    It started out as a kid with SW and Gijoe.
    Then went to Marvel and Spawn as I grew older. Sold/got rid of a lot of things.. then discovered Sideshow.

    My collection grew very fast over the last 3 years, but now I'm cutting some themes down and going to concentrate on a few areas where I can see almost an end coming to my collection.

    How has your collection changed over the years and where do you see/want it to go?

    Mine has changed a lot too even in just the past couple of years. I stared with hasbro Star Wars back in the 90's. First "high end" stuff was the LOTR WETA line and then on to the SW PF's from SS. I've gotten into and out of several lines in the last couple of years until I settled on PF's ( various PF lines ) and GG mini busts ( also various lines ) for the most part.

    In the 90's I start buying back the old toys and action figures I used to have as a kid ( MOTU, GiJOE,Marvel action figures ect..) Probably out of nostalgia...Then I went with Mcfarlane movie maniacs,Then Sideshow.In the mean time I start collecting back comic books...Long story short, Now, its only Sideshow Marvel for me !!!

    Less toys, more statues, prop replicas, other high-end pieces and fine art for me these days.

    Same here. Started with Hasbro back in the 90's, then continued "upgrading" after discovering Sideshow.

    Same here... it just gets more refined and expensive. And now the customs are starting to almost outweigh the regular figures.

    I started out with those 4" Star Wars figure when they first started re-issuing them back in the 90's, but got out of that when the scalpers got to be too big of a headache.

    Moved on to McFarlane stuff, but got tired of the figures breaking everytime I looked at them.

    After that, I tried Transformers, but the obsessiveness of that community made me quit for fear of becoming one of them. 1/6 scale was the next stop, and I've stuck with it so far.

    As for where I see it going, high prices and dwindling space will probably force me to become much more selective or perhaps quit altogether in the near future. I've been collecting so long now, I'm not sure I wouldn't welcome the end of it.

    I'm getting there. I'm to the point where I KNOW what pieces I will buy and everything else is a pass. I refuse to ever let my collection get cluttered up. I have specific pieces on my "want" list and I'll pass on everything else.
