Good Lord!




Yep, thats probably 97% of all my toys in one glorious toy reunion gathering of 2010. Hard to show scale, but that BMF is huge by itself. Maybe its time to retire collecting?

wow that a lot. Just curious, have you ever estimate how much you spent for those?

saruman said...

is there any way (when we are still alive) to stop buying toys? If there is I would like to know how coz I just can't stop buying even i dont have the cash!!!

I inclination not concur on it. I assume precise post. Expressly the title attracted me to study the sound story.

This is exactly why I have tried to re think my toy purchases for the coming year. I have a pile about that size as well, and that's after several purges. I often wonder what the pile would look like if I had kept everything...

Is this set up a permanent fixture at your home? Or were they assembled specially for this photo shoot? That's scary reminder indeed for us collectors who'll be reminded constantly of the mountain of collectibles we amass on a weekly (daily) basis! LOL....

P/S: I'm sure if I stack mine up, it'll look not too far off yours too...*scary*

LEon- maybe 8,000-10,000. Over 17 years or so.
worth 5 bucks now that they are opened. :)

Saruman- I know the feeling! Trying so hard to prioritize this year for sure!

Anonymous- You can say that again.

Chunky B- No kidding, thank God for selling stuff on Ebay. I like your list idea this year, and I am also thinking of setting up a schedule of only buying toys on those dates. Sort of like several small x-mases.

Anonymous 2- Anyone want to translate?

The Rebel- Recently moved so I thought it was a good time to see how much I really had in one spot. My sister in law made fun of me when we got passed 30 totes.

Dan said...

I also noticed, that this is more like 90% of what I have, as I still have not moved everything!!!

Hey Dan,

Just noticed the stuffed Hulk, I think it may be one of ours, does it have Toy Factory on the label?

Don't feel bad about the thirty totes, I had to move my collection while doing some work on the house, it took me four trips in a Jeep Cherokee to move everything back from storage, all but one tote was toys.

I like the mini x-mas idea. So far I have been pretty faithful to the list.

Also looks like you are getting spam form Anonymous sources, I hope this isn't going to be a problem with blogger.

Chunky B - Hulk is a Toy Factory toy, I play the claw machine at lunch lots at Fred Meyers. I won a Bugs Bunny a couple weeks ago that rocks. I wanna work at a place called Toy Factory! :)

That's a very impressive collection. I think that if collect more than just Transformers thru the 90's and 00's I could have a collection close to yours.

The HISS II actually helped with the scale issue. Seeing a GI Joe really helps with the scale, especially since it my favorite/preferred scale.

I think u shld retire & sell it to new generations of collectors like me. hehehe! Would love to buy it from u if u sell it in a reasonable price. Let the new kids feel what it's like to own old skool Star Wars figures.. Probably they didn't know who Luke, Princess Leia & Han Solo is. :)
