im a big ole dork.
i like to collect certain toys.
i have a huge collection of unopened pez. i have a couple thousand garbage pail kid cars that ive had for probably 25 years.

lately i have been getting into the funko pop toys.
they are already not as popular as they were last year so the price is going down on them.
got a couple more yesterday at hot topic that were buy 1 get one free.
i only have 17 of them now but since the price is going down i am going to buy some more.
i think i am going to buy a curio cabinet to display them in.

anyone see these around? theyre pretty cool.
yesterday at hot topic i picked up rachael duncan from orphan black and morpheus from the matrix.

I wish they still made that type of Millennium Falcon, instead of the Micro Machines one were getting now.

My favorite toy is a 1977 ford tractor with a loader and six and a half foot snowblower. I also have a lot of other attachments for it. Heck with those small toys, climb on a real toy.

I am relieved to see this thread is NOT what I thought the title meant.


My toys are power tools, just got a new compound/miter saw to 'play' with.

I was an idiot...
But... I have to admit that it was a cool effect to pour a little gasoline in the back and ignite the thrusters running around the yard! My mom on the other hand did not see it as "Cool" or even ok!

I was recently asked by a good friend of mine to sell off his collection of "toys" as he has a serious illness and wanted the cash.

The term "kid in a candy store" was worn out quickly. He had about 12 falcons boxed, another 10 or so ATAT's and maybe 300 other boxed vintage "toys" starwars, indiana jones ect.

It was and still is amazing to earn money from realising someones inheritance while playing with this stuff.

We are still finding amazing things now and it just gets better.

I am like a pig in the proverbiale right now mate.

They are not cheap especially with the new movies right now.

How about a pic of an origional stormtrooper helmet signed by every single actor that played one in the first 3 movies...


No word of a lie I hand delivered a cloud car mint in box with inserts to a guy a little while ago but we had to do it when his wife was out, he had tears in his eyes.

I still have all of my Lego Town sets from the 80's. No boxes, but all the pieces and instructions. I do have the original boxes and instructions for some Lego Model Team sets from the late 80's. I also have a few hundred 70's & 80's Hot Wheels that are in very good condition, though not in their blister packaging.

I kept some of my father's Structo semi truck and trailers. He wanted to throw them out but they are way too cool looking.
