The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

For those of you who are unaware of my hobbies, one of them is to collect STAR WARS and STAR TREK action figures and other toys and has been for many years now. When I was a litte kid I collected most of the original STAR WARS action figures made by Kenner between 1978 and 1985 and still own them, and I started collecting the new Kenner/Hasbro figures starting in 1998. Over the past 13 or 14 years I've probably acquired well over 2,000 action figures of different sizes and from different lines. I've posted quite a few pics of my collection in the "Picture Post" thread in recent months and also have a Photobucket account full of snapshots of my stuff. In addition to all my STAR WARS stuff I also own a much, much smaller but nonetheless quality collection of STAR TREK figures, dolls and plastic and die-cast ships dating back to some of the classic Mego (TOS) dolls of the '70s and the 3-3/4" line of action figures from THE MOTION PICTURE that were in stores in 1979 and 1980.

Does anyone else here collect action figures, toys, dolls, etc.? Feel free to discuss your hobby and post pictures of your stashes...I'd love to see what you guys and gals like to collect! Let's get this ball rolling!

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

i don't collect as much as i use to. i had most of the Star Wars stuff starting with the 98 Powers of the Force line. kept collecting till Episode III came out. around that time i sold most of my older figures and began to focus on Marvel and DC toys.

yesterday i bought DC Universe Classics Gold, Mercury and Iron (three of the Metal Men). also got Orion earlier this week. last weekend i got Marvel Legends 'Bucky' Captain America.

those Art Asylum Star Trek figures are really great. if only the 09 movie figures were made by Art Asylum.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I used to collect as a kid, mostly MOTU, TMNT, and Batman and Spider-Man figures. I have recently returned and have been impressed with how far the figures have come since I collected. The detail and articulation especially. I'm still waiting for the Art Aslyum/Diamond Select Enterprise-E to come out...it continually has been pushed back for the last year or so. I want my ship!

The largest figure collection I have right now at all is a random assortment of Sonic the Hedgehog toys.

You started this thread just for me, didn't you?

It's been a bit since I've taken some pictures of my crap. Stuff's been updated since. Time to snap some more, I think.

No, but I won't lie...you were one of the posters I had in mind. You seem to have a good grasp of the subject and I'd love your input.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I'm wondering if a new wave of Trek toys will hit the shelves when the new movie comes out? Will they be made by a new company, or will they change the design?

^I can only pray. The ones from the last film were just dreadful. I'd love Diamond Select to get the license back.

LOL One was Wedge! I got him, Ponda Baba and a Hoth guy from Smyth's (UK toy shop).

I hear Bespin Han is being re-released in a future wave.

Here's my desk, such as it is right now. I change things around every so often. I'll take some pictures of the rest of my collection when I feel like it.
