OR How Good It Has Become.
I'm cleaning out my office here at work, trying to get rid of the clutter. I open the drawer of a hideous little file cabinet to see if I can clear it out. Inside- A boxed Hyrdrocopter, Photon Sled, Galactic Cruncher and some random micro-parts.
I'll move it to the bottom drawer of desk. Well, that's filled with Marvel calenders from 1976-80, a couple Power records and some other hero stuff that I don't even recognize.
My little apartment is so... well, little. My toys have infiltrated my workspace! But I refuse to get rid of the Kung Fu grip Joe on my shelf :grin:
Have any toys followed you to work?

I have 8 figures on my shelf at work. The basics. Kirk, Spock, Zauis, Corny, Spidey, Supes, Batman and Robin.
Nothing overtaking my desk drawers though. :grin:

I have about 80 Megos/Megolike figures in my office. There are only about 20-30 left at the house, along with all hundreds of clothes and accessories (all nicely organized in drawers and tupperwares).
My wife kicked out the Mego displays but let me keep my work area.

No toys in my office at my customer. However my home office is a different story

I work at a school, what do you think?:wink2: No seriously, I don't leave my toys at school, but I have taken them w/ me sometimes: my kids have seen Evel Knievel, GIJoe, Action Jackson, Big Jim & Friends, SSP cars and various dolls.

I have a Cap and Spidey on my desk at work but that's about. Everything else is either cramed in my toyroom or put in a plastic storage bin. I have one downstairs storage room filled with plastic bins. If I were to have to give up my toy room I have no idea what I'd do with my stuff, I guess move to a bigger house or suffer from withdraw.

I've always had a few. Currently Karza's at my cubicle and a handful of smaller Palisades-edition Micros. A current (KayBee/K-Mart) Godzilla vinyl. Couple of current Japanese robots. My collection of Matchbox TV News & Uplink trucks (I'm not the only guy in the studio that has those, though.). I've also got a Palisades 14" Optimus Prime artist proof and a production sample of the Shockwave statue, along with a framed proof of the box (those are personal work portfolio pieces, though).

Sadly, I have no mego's at work. I still need to restore many of them to make them presentable.
I did have a Baron Karza on mydesk when the Star Wars prequels were coming out thinking people would say, "Ohhh, is that a new Darth Vader?" Instead it freaked out many female employees who thought it was a Devil action figure,(***!?!?!?!?)! I dunno how they made that connection.
Sometimes tho, I keep a Spock or some Trek figure, in a drawer and when people go home I enlarge blueprints of vehicles on the photocopier to see how big they would be in Mego scale.
