As the title suggests, whats your favorite most treasured collectable/toy ?

Your only allowed to choose ONE ! yes im being that cruel, just the one thing that you would swap everything else to keep :shock: if you cant decide, you must decide, its crunch time ! imagine someones about to blow your collection up and they offer to let u keep one thing, what would you choose ?

post a picture of it, ramble about it, go nuts ! its your pride and joy so share it :D

p.s: im aware that a thread like this has probably already been posted but its just for fun, please put down your pitchforks and dampen your torches, im new :mrgreen:

I know I have one for my Comic Books (TOS#39) but I'm not sure I could get it down to just one toy for my collection.

Perhaps the SW Imperial Shuttle? It's certainly pretty.

My Favorites....

70's Remco Monsters and Monsterizer

80's Blackstar Ice Castle

Image

90's The Maxx by Mcfarlane "Toys" (Still the best thing they ever made.) (Stole this image. Mine is in storage.)

Image

2000's Doctor Who 11th Doctor Tardis Interior Playset

Image

Pride and Joy of all time is the 1978 Frontier Town from Legends of the West by Empire. (Makes me smile.)

I would have to pick my very first Winnie the Pooh stuffed animal.

The story goes that I was about 1 or so and in the stroller as Mom was pushing me through the store. I reached out and grabbed it and quickly went to sleep.

Mom was loading me in the car before it was noticed and didn't want to risk waking me up by unloading me from the car and bringing the toy back in the store so we kept it (I shoplifted at 1 year of age!).

The Pooh has been on my bed ever since. Took it on every sleepover, took it to college with me, even brought it on my honeymoon.

The damn thing has had almost as many "stitches" as I have and now my son is trying to claim him.

I would gladly give up every other object in my life for that Pooh and would probably risk going back into a burning building to get it.

Hands down, the pride and joy of my collection.

I have the original hand painted (by Eddie Wires) resin casting of the wave 1 Marvel Legends Hulk. The one Jesse brought to SDCC that first year to announce the line. The bottom of one foot is signed by Eddie, the other foot is signed by Phil.

Tough call. I have quite a few things from my childhood that bring back good memories and I certainly have a few things that are worth a lot (like a MOC slimed Grundy signed by Bruce Timm)....but if I had to choose one thing, it would be the first JLU figure I got which was a Christmas gift from my gf, now my wife. And of course, it's Batman. That one figure led to an almost complete JLU collection.

Very difficult, this. I would probably grab the 13" DC deluxe GL corps figure -- the one with the three extra heads. Although I would be sorely tempted by my Super Powers GL instead.

I would trade it all for a working 1960's Ideal Robot Commando, though. That was my favorite toy growing up, and if I had one again, that's what I would save, no contest.

Mine would be my daughter, Zoey.

Other than THAT, I'd have to say this:

My Rocketeer helmet. I know it's not a TOY, per se, but I love it so.

If it HAS to be a toy, it'd be:

UM...I mean THIS:

Sorry. My bad.

Either my Marvel Universe Vision (non-phased), or my Spartan warrior Lego mini-figure. I bought 100 series 2 minifigures, but only got one Spartan.

I think right now my Pride and Joy is my humble collection of 3 3/4" scale vintage figures. So far I've got the following lines loose and kinda complete (as far as my low standards are concerned):

- MEGO Love Boat
- Galoob A-Team
- Mattel Battlestar Galactica
- MEGO Buck Rogers
- Mattel Clash of the Titans
- Mattel Flash Gordon
- Tristar MASH
- Remco Universal Monsters
- Mattel Mork & Mindy
- Tomy TRON
- MultiToys Wizard of Oz
- LJN Advanced Dungeons & Dragons series 1

I'm currently working on the difficult:
- MEGO Black Hole
- Mattel Dukes of Hazzard

So which Black Hole are you missing?

I would love to see pics of your Remco.
