I also have a fascination with figures that glow in the dark and ones that are made of clear plastic. Weird, I know but they intrigue me.

Ha, that's cool. Would love to see a pic of that collection. Lights on and off.


I can't figure out how to upload pics of my collection on here. Just as soon as I figure it out I will put up pics.

Oh, why did you have to link to that?

Aside from the SDCC Destro, which I didn't like, I've put together a complete carded/boxed G.I. JOE 25th Anniversary collection, in addition to 150 or so figures that I opened. Now that the line has dropped the 25th name, I'm being a little more picky about what I add, and I'm really close to being done with it.

Really close to being done with it, huh? 1) I have the SDCC Destro now (a graded one, no less), 2) I couldn't begin to tell you how much G.I. JOE stuff I bought in '09, and 3) I have a big heap of PoC stuff waiting to be shipped from BBTS.

I've also added two more lines to the list of stuff that I collect. :?

Get a photobucket account. It is FREE. Upload your pics there. When you mouse over the pic in photobucket, a dropdown window will appear with 4 boxes containing links. The bottom one is (IMG). Copy that link and paste it into your post in the AFI forum. The pic will appear in the message.

We have a widget installed on the boards so you can upload pictures.

when writing a new post just look under the main text box and you will see a blue link that says "click here to upload an image"

And away you go!

I tried that one, it would not work for me. I had to resort to photobucket. I can confirm that it works. I cannot confirm your widget. Sorry.

Not sure what browser you're using but the widget doesn't work in Safari. If I need to use it I switch to Firefox.

Wow Fone Bone. If you collected everything you wanted to collect, you'd be working just to support your habit, err, I mean hobby :lol:.

At the moment...

Batman: Brave and the Bold
Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers

Thats about it.
Those are the only lines right now that I am seriously picking up.

Although because of the lack of toys I want, I have developed a bad habit of picking up cheap figures at places like Ross, Biglots, store clearances, etc.
Stuff I would have never bought at full price I am all over at closeout stores..
IF you factor those, I have picked up a little of everything...
DCIH, JLU, wrestlers, Star Trek, and other just random guys that I thought looked neat. I even picked up a GI Joe.
I really need to rein this in though. I've bought some stuff that one day I thought cool, the next I'm wondering why I bought it.

Most of this though is driven by the fact that I am in school. So I buy these cheap figures so I can have something while I'm there and not have to take any of my main collection with me.
Stuff that if I for some reason lose it, It is not any kindof loss.

Can't remember if I answered this before, but in general, less than I used to.

some Brave and Bold
some JLU
some DCUC
some DC Direct
some Ben 10

too expensive to be a completist anymore.

I stopped being a completist a long time ago when I realized that it just gave companies license to produce crappy filler characters to pad out their profits. There are some lines that I buy all of, just because I like the line. Most things though, I pick and choose which characters or which figures I really want to have and ignore the rest. It's not a financial thing, it's a matter of demanding the best and only supporting that which I want to support.

Like it or not, these companies have to earn my consumer dollar and most of the time, they don't.

I, too, have felt the sting of buyer's remorse, but it usually takes a week or more before I realize/admit to it. :mrgreen:
