It has been quite sometime since I have posted on here but I do visit the group quite often. The activity in the group seems to have greatly diminished. Why is that? I still collect more than ever but I do tend to focus more on the vintage stuff. The vintage thread here seems pretty well dead anymore. Where did everybody go?

Three theories

1. The majority of the activity here was JLU based. It’s long dead now.

2. Collecting got really expensive really fast

3. There seems to be significantly less DC stuff out there and this place always felt more DC centric

4. A lot of people from the forums have migrated to social media. I see quite a few familiar faces from here on Facebook.

Sorry, Im still here. Mostly just to check in and see whats happening. Been very busy between work, and life, and thinking about starting over again in the new year.

I pop in from time to time, but nothing like the frequency I used to have.

Number #2 for me. I've reduced my collection to vintage LEGO Town, Collectible Minifigures, and Transformers Masterpiece. Mostly because of space, but cost as well. I've found by reducing my collection I can enjoy it more.

I'm still here, but mainly on the Screen Scene boards. As noted, with JLU gone, I don't do as much action figure collecting as I used to, so I rarely post on the Mattel forums anymore.

Life happened, for most of us I think. Work, family, busy as heck with other "life stuff". And the industry changed so much, and many of the DC lines that we talked about so much are pretty much gone.

I still connect with people thorough social media, but I don't visit the forums as much. :/

Ditto! 100% agree on this.
