    icon17.gif Anyone here collect toys/Action Firgures?

    Like the title states, do any members collect? I am referring to items from Neca, Sideshow Collectables and other known vendors.

    I am just now compiling a list of items I wish to collect with a main focus on Alien and comic book heroes.

    I do off and on, for comic related figures it's for me either been DC Select or which ever company Marvel uses at the moment

    I wouldn't say I collect them per se, but I do have a bunch of various things. Bunch of Transformers, more than a few GI Joes, some Marvel and DC stuff. A few Japanese things.

    I'll buy something if it's related to something I really like. I bought the Dante DMC 4 Play Arts figure, a Ninja Gaiden Ryu Hayabusa figure or two, an Ezio figure, stuff like that. But even if they're part of a line, I stop with the figures I like. Some people are complete collectors, and I get that. I just don't do it with toys/toy lines.

    I bought compulsively for a couple of years, now I'm having a hard time trying to sell of few of the items to avoid room-space issues... I got kinda saturated during my trip to Japan, though. I decided to buy ONLY specific, way too good figures and leave it at that.

    The rest of the money will be going to games
    Great people to make deals with: gargoyle7, IDCHAPPY, Xian-Xi, alberto1225, hjm123, bokmeow, Wachenroder, subbie , NeoTurfMasta, Hide, T.A.P. , Kidpanda

    I have a rather massive lego collection that is mostly stored away in boxes in my parents' attic. I stopped buying new - and old - sets when i really ran out of space. Nowadays i only hoard parts that are either valueable or usefull for some projects that i have been working on for years.

    Mostly interested in the train sets.

    I just got back into collecting, actually. I mostly did action figures for a while, but now I've been on a PVC figure kick.

    If you're interested, I have a link to my collection in my sig. But here's another link in case you have sigs turned off. I doesn't list any of my domestic figures, sadly.

    I did for quite some time, and started making my own for the sake of having full rosters, mostly from Capcom franchises. I've got a bunch of the Hot Toys ones like Iron Man, the RE5 cast, and Ezio, but I mostly have Neca and High Dream/Reigning Looney (CvSNK2) stuff NIB, especially from when I used to buy 2 of every figure. I've got a lot of one limited run stuff related to gaming, but I've since given it up and all of my collecting hobbies (other than game collecting) since getting bit by the arcade bug.

    I collect 80's toys. I also have some toys from the 70's like Star Wars and Shogun Warriors. I started collecting in the early 90's.

    I've never done any completionist collecting, but I've been known to collect various comic/game/manga-related figures. In my younger years, I used to compulsively collect Star Wars figures and Action Fleet ships, as well as Transformers (pretty much from G2 onward until Classics/Animated).

    I actually can't remember the last time I bought a figure, but I'll probably splurge on something at ACEN this year.

    I stopped pretty much because I ran out of room and also because of a house fire I had back in 99. I've got boxed figures downstairs in my basement that are pretty much worthless to collectors since it wasn't in a smoke free house. I used to get Lee's Action Figure and Toy Review price guide when I was a Jr.High/High School and I used that like the bible. I got most of Power Ranger Zords when the first few seasons of the show were really hyped. I also had a ton of TMNT and Real Ghostbusters toys while my brother was hardcore with Transformers and Star Wars toys. I'll only buy something I really like and I can have it out as a display piece on my shelf.

    Wish I had room to display those. No sense in buying if the figures are not even going to be taken out of their boxes.

    i used to for Dragon Ball Z/GT action figures in the late 90s, my town china town area had a big shipment, and they were super cheap, like 2 bucks each...

    after a while and found out that my cousin kept taking them, i decided to give him all of them since he actually played with them....

    I collect everything Transformers. I used to be a completionist at one time and got pretty close on a couple of things but I took some time off and now I have no chance in catching up.

    TO the O.P.: when you mention Sideshow are you primarily refering to the entry level side (In house 1:6th), midline (distributed 1:6th like Hot Toys & mezco, Sideshow premium format & LSB's, etc) or high end (lifesize/1:1 scale pieces, LSF figures, fine art pieces, etc).

    I have collected product from companies such as Master Replicas, Sideshow & others.
    Sideshow has become a mess of sorts though. Their size, ego, greed, Lack of thorough quality control and the whole China factor have resulted in allot of sub par to piss poor product over the last few years. The only thing worse has been the customer service that has followed, which has been even worse.

    I kinda do. It's a mix of old stuff from when I was little, to random new things that look cool. I don't keep them in their boxes though, that's just silly.

    Transformers, Mega Man figures, Centurions, Z-Bots, Monster in My Pocket, old Mario PVCs, Tron figures, Microman figures, Dragon Quest VIII Play Arts figs, a couple Figmas...

    I wish I had some kind of cool display for them all.

    I haven't bought a figure in a long time, but I did pre-order this recently:
