    Comic Action Heroes. They're just so expensive for minty ones.

    Back in the 90's, I tried to collect any vintage toy line that sparked my interest from when I was a kid...Gi Joe, Big Jim, 6 Million Dollar Man, Hot Wheels, etc...Then I got into Marvel characters and started collecting carded figures...Then I had a big collection of Hot Toys figures...It all became too much...So I got rid of most everything and now just concentrate on GI Joe and a FEW Hot Toys figures...It really does become overwhelming if you let it...

    If what it says when it talks is anything that resembles the quote on the front of the box? Then I'm all for it. Next thing you know, it'll be advocating other reasonable ideas
    "No. No no no no no no. You done got me talkin' politics. I didn't wanna'. Like I said y'all, I'm just happy to be alive. I think I'll scoot over here right by this winda', let this beautiful carriage rock me to sleep, and dream about how lucky I am." - Chris Mannix

    DC Direct 7'' DC figures after a few years the loose figures began crumbling piece by piece
    sitting in storage boxes at room temp. Finally decided to sell the whole collection
    and never regretted it. Even New figures right out of package would lose parts

    I try to avoid collecting vinyl kaiju, because it is just such a Pandora's box with noooooo end

    I collect Star Wars Unboxed/UnCarded. Have to be in Played with condition. To me, if it hasnt been played with, I dont want it. I have almost every toy, not all complete, but thats the thrill of the hunt. If you only search for Carded stuff, Its expensive and hard to find.
    I also collect, Battle Star, Buck Rogers, and any other 70-80 Space Toys. (Dont tell the Wife, but also Master of the Universe)

    Now, I have always been kind of scared of collecting Matchbox/Hot Wheels, seems like there is sooo many varations, and remakes. Where to begin.
    12" GI JOES and Vintage Barbies are also in this category.

    Henshin Cyborg- I have a couple of characters I love but every time I try to get an Ultraman I get a comeuppance. It's pricey, still very popular in Japan, not a good combination.
