I like toys. Who doesn’t, right? Even the people who think they’ve “grown up” like toys. You put a pile of brand new toys (all boxed up or carded) in front of a “grown up” and when no one’s looking? They’ll be straight flashbacking to Christmas morning past.
I’m mostly into action figures. But, I don’t want to put myself in a box (as it were) either. I branch out a bit into Lego and such, but when it comes right down to it, I’m about action figures. My point in admitting all this, is that I don’t necessarily have to be a collector of one particular line to buy any given figure. I consider myself mostly a “collect what I like” collector. I’m not a completist by any stretch of the imagination. Likewise, if there’s a figure of a particular character that I’m into, but, looks all around terrible, I won’t buy it.
