I guess I'll be needing an ESB figure from Vintage Saga wave 2 to complete my 'collection' now :-s
Guess what - collecting retired action figures is just like collecting retired LEGO - expensive!
Oh, and here's some trivia: it turns out that MOC is also an acronym on action figure collecting forums, but it doesn't mean the same as on here...
(for those that don't know MOC is Mint On Card in this context)
Mustang Mach 1 went for £18.
My Micro Machines collection is up too and, found an old , beaten up Corgi Hillman Hunter Rally Car for 25p which returned £5.
I seem to have moved from die-cast collector to dealer.
Hopefully I've got that out of my system now!
Heads-up @solid_strider, good news from Star Wars Celebration:
Oh, and it turns out I hadn't quite got it out of my system - I just picked up the Stormtrooper and Boba Fett from the 2004 Vintage Original Trilogy Collection :)
Best sold in a lot.
Because of age, the glue may be brittle and the pages may tear from the binding.
Hopefully they're white (not yellowed from sun exposure) and crisp with no writing!
Nice! Now we can vote for Yak Face or another Jabba thug! And nice score on the Boba Fett. You might want to go and get the VTAC IG-88 and the TVC Dengar, 4-LOM and Zuckuss.
Series is already a plural, technically speaking. It's one of those funny words that could mean one thing 'World Series' or many things 'A Series of Books/Movies/Games/Toys' that sort of thing.
I'd say so, yes.
You mentioning VTAC IG-88 made me realise you're on Rebelscum too - I only recently joined but I thought I recognised your username from the LEGO forum.
I wonder how many other Brickset members are active on other collecting forums?
For example, for as much as I love DVDs and blu-rays, there will be a day (soon) where the quality of streaming a movie will be as good as the disc stream, and where I get to enjoy all the special features offered in disc/physical media...same with music albums...don't get me wrong, I love the tangibility of an item, but when there is no more quality benefit of having a CD or DVD (don't get me started on vinyl), then the need for them becomes null.
In the meantime, to add to my list, I also try to collect silver coins, especially Mexican silver (which I didn't know, was very sought after by collectors), the new Star Wars books, blu-rays from specific movies, and photographs I take (that is still collecting, right?).
it was a tough hobby to keep up with since Hasbro released so many exclusives for each convention or through various US retail stores every year it cost 1000's just to keep up with and a lot of enjoyment eventually went. By the end of 2011 I'd had enough so I sold all but a few of the modern lines. I kept the full set of comic two-packs (63 I think). SOTE POTF2 figures and vehicles and the POTF2 EU figures. The full set of 21 VOTC figures including the mail away Lucus trooper, and my favourite, the Disney Parady line, which were crazy hard to complete, including all the very limited exclusives and box sets.
if I can dig out some old images of that stuff I will post them up (they are all boxed up again). I also have an almost complete carded and boxed set of M.A.S.K serise 1 and 2 figures and vehicles and a smattering of Takara Reissue Transformers, although thinking of selling those (which would be the second time I have bought and sold them...)
I"d love to see the M.A.S.K. Stuff!!
Disney Parody Figures
Don't have a group photo of the Expanded Universe stuff
Love the complete set of VOTC/VTSC/VTAC figures!
i have a boxed Switchblade and a few other vehicles somewhere as well, Manta, Vampire I think.
Masterpiece Beast Wars Transformers
Masterpiece G1 season 1/2
Lego (modulars and a smattering of city, superheroes, speed champions, architecture, seasonal, ideas, CMF, and creator)
superheroes (various DCUC/ML/Mafex/SHF/ONE:12/Figma/HotToys)
And yes, the black pauldron on the LEGO Sandtrooper does niggle a bit, but that figure is much nicer than the older variant with the orange pauldron (Hasbro did actually make a variant with the black pauldron, but to me an iconic Sandtrooper has an orange pauldron).
Actually, for me the minifigure is iconic, but I prefer larger figures to look realistic.
Ah, Transformers and Pacific Rim - I've looked at both. And while it was fairly easy to get hold of the Transformers I wanted (the new ones, not vintage ones, being easily available on Amazon) I was a bit late to the party for PR, so I've only got Striker Eureka. Might get hold of Gypsy Revenger from the second film if I like the look of it in action.
Also got into a little bit of the die-cast Star Wars HW models. But I've managed to get all the ones of those I want. Also bought the little Thunderbirds vehicles and the 3 slightly bigger ones because they were so cheap. Would love Lego versions of those, but not sure the Ideas project is going anywhere...
Then there's Metal Earth, which I'm happy to leave in the package rather than get infuriated at how awkward they are and when I inevitably break one of the pieces.
Can't post photos of anything as they're in storage at the minute awaiting the time when my office is less full of rubbish. They'll be waiting a while, I think.
Oops! I thought it sounded just a little too cheesy as I wrote that, but forgot to check it before posting! I must've got it confused with the line from the Thor: Ragnarok trailer.
I need to find a good site for locating transformer parts ... or just replacement parts in general for robot toys. My Voltron needs a little TLC to get back into display shape.
Below are some of the fixed up kits. Also have a few of the PG kits, but yet to open and fix them.
Some of the Gundam toys.
