Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!
Oh, I understand man. This hobby's all about whatever floats a person's boat. Whether a person opens all his stuff or leaves it all MOC or MIP(or their collection contains both a whole lot of packaged and a whole lot of loose like mine), it's the joy of collecting that brings us together. I just wish the last couple of years had been a little kinder and easier on we collectors. I'm already starting to hear some people refer to now as "the New Dark Age of Star Wars toy collecting" because of the endless repacks and repaints of figures that kind of sucked when they were brand new. Outside of the Vintage Collection, the current SW toy market is a complete and blithering mess, and even Vintage is affected by awful distribution so no branch has gone unscathed.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
