I was referring more to toys that you don't open and keep in the package in the hopes it will increase in value. Now, if you happen to collect adult toys and keep them in the original packages, then you have serious issues.  :P

What if they're collectible in a antique roadshow kind of way.

It can really apply to anything that is considered a collectible.

I'm not a 'collector', well for anything of value. Years ago I tried with vinyl albums, CD's etc, but that was a road that never ended.

As you already know, I go out of my way to find Vinyls worth hunting down. Still do. This is one "hobby" that won't ever end with me.

There looked like there was a crop of new toys at Books-A-Million (I realized it became the new Sam Goody a while ago), neat stuff like the robots from Portal (which I had seen there before), figures from Assassin's Creed, and a whole new set of Jaegers from Pacific Rim.  No Gyspy Danger, though, which was what I was holding out for.  I was tempted to get Crimson Typhoon to put alongside this old blue robot I have but I wanna save my cash for the con trip (which I imagine I will be buying more toys than I can expect).

They also had the first wave of Game Of Thrones figures, but for some insane reason, Arya's not amongst them.  Let's be honest, that's one of the ones you want.

I feel like... if I had display space (I so don't) and cash, I would be mixing and matching like crazy, I'd want to get Dany and put her with Toothless from HTTYD (his figure looks AMAZING, right out of the movie).  Play around like that.  But technically, I can draw, so can't I do that sort of thing for free whenever I want anyway?

I use to collect toys as if they were going out of style. I'd have my desk littered with everything from Terminator action figures to bobble heaqds to Clerks. You name it, it was in front of me. But desktop space became cluttered to the point that whatever I bought, went straight into storage. I really have to force myself not to buy stuff any more because I have no place to put it. But if there is something at Comic Con that catches my eye......out comes the wallet.

Sigh.

I had to get rid of so many toys moving all over the place when I was a kid (I still have my Fugitoid!) that now, I only buy the stuff that REALLY catches my eye and my heartstrings, and I refuse to let go.  I have this big blue robot from 1998 that I got when it came out, I love that thing.  I have a couple Enterprises (though no Enterprise-D, and that was the one I grew up with).

I've got the Kamen Rider W Cyclone/Joker SIC figurine because I f'in loved that show, the design, the characters, all of it.  I wanted a piece of it.  It's still in the box in a bag because I have no place to show it off (and my god, there are SO many parts).  I've always wanted an SIC figure because they look amazing (I'm sure they'll have a display booth at SDCC, they have before, hyper-detailed figure/statues of bugs that look like old apples).  And I've got the current Yellow Ranger hanging out in my Cyberdyne mug b/c I love the design of the costume, the japanese character, the american character, and the actress who plays her (though the series is so BAD).  Quadruple whammy.  10 bucks well spent.

The thing is, now, I put my own spin on everything I see, so the toys would only make sense to me with attachments or other figures that don't exist.  I guess the next step is to make what's in my head a thing so that toys will be made OF them.

Oh, and Chip, there's gonna be awesome stuff at Comic Con.  Mondo is doing toys.  MONDO.  Is doing TOYS.  Including The Iron god-d*mn Giant!

I read about Mondo a few days ago. I totally forgot to post the link.

So, I treated myself to a couple toys today.  Right now on my desk I have the John Hurt War Doctor figure and Gentle Giant's Dany Targareon figure.  I picked them because a) I dig both characters and b) they kinda look alike.  Rugged earth tones with draping lines.  And the War Doctor's cube keeps finding itself rolling around in my hand.  Cool, clockwork crate.




I will say, the War Doctor looks more like John Hurt than Dany's figure looks like Dany... which is odd, coming from Gentle Giant.

I gotta figure out places online to look for and order toys, there's really no places to look for the cool ones.  I've been waiting for an Arya, but apparently there's already been an Arya released.
