Always loved action figures and toys growing up. Grew more into video games and anime in high school but occasionally bought mcfarlane or neca items. Got a decent paying job after college and started collecting robot damashii eva units. And so began my slippery slope into collecting. Its a fun albeit expensive hobby. No ragrets.
Dad used to make a lot of money when I was younger, and I loved movies/tv/video game lore. I'm gonna guess my first collection was like Sesame Street figures, then Disney. My collecting changed as I grew up to match my taste such as Star Wars, video game characters, superhero, and random movies I liked. I think my biggest collection was and still is Star Wars just because how accessible it always was to pick up those. Although I stopped collecting in middle school/ part of high school because it wasn't "cool". Then, I got into punk music and stopped giving a shit about "cool". It's an on and off thing due to my having a lot of other hobbies. I try to keep it to capeshit and Star Wars these days, and only pick up when I have extra cash.

Hanging out with cool social people means no one will say shit to you and maybe even suck up to you by pretending to be interested in toys. Loved HS.
>>5402289 >I think I started collecting right at the right time with how much of a quality jump in figures there was from 2011/12ish-2013 Those were years of decline. I think it's only right now where we're actually seeing improvements again since 2008-2010
>>5401334 I always had toys as a kid. I remember my dad buying me some of the early power of the force SW figures and I had a Darth Vader that I carried around everywhere. I had tons of hot wheels, too. As I got older I sorta just continued having an interest in toys (mostly action figures). It was one of those things where you're meant to stop liking something but you continue liking it. I didn't really see a point in stopping buying figures, since its something that brings me a joy I didn't see a reason to quit collecting just bc its seen as the norm. >>5401399 video games can only occupy you for however long you feel like sitting in front of the TV, toys are forever.
I had an ok collection of ML's and star wars figures form when I was a kid. Wasn't really into it until I got my first job at 16.I met at a guy there who was also 16 and super into figures and comic books. We became best friends and now Im huge into collecting. Im 21 now and have a giant collection. Him and I still go to flea markets and trade shows looking for figures. Fun stuff
