I'm currently dividing my time between development work for a small arts organization and overseeing an arts collaborative effort. But life is changing fast and I will likely be starting my own business in the next few months.

I got married at the end of 2009 and my daughter was born a little over two weeks ago...she arrived New Year's Eve!

I'm buying far less than I once did. I'm more likely to purchase a vintage figure than a new one. I'm slowly adding to my original Star Wars and Super Powers collections, thanks to a vintage toy shop that conveniently opened across the street from my office. I have an industrial shelf dedicated to Palisades' Muppet figures which remain as my favorite collection (a modified Stepping Out Kermit and Piggy sat on top of our wedding cake). I'm only missing a handful of them...

: What are you up to now, and what are you still buying?
: I'll start.
: I'm heading a small web marketing company now.
: Buying mostly Japanese toys at the moment. Lots of Nendoroids, figma and Bandai-arts, some revoltech. Basically 1/12 scale highly articulated figures are my thing now.
: Still buying heavily into Transformers but I've given up most superhero stuff because of bad pricing in Asia. I have, however, just been bitten by the Monster High bug after attending NYCC last year.
: What about you guys?
