Look, I'm just a guy who likes
- I had a small comic book and action figure collection as a kid. I used to trade a lot.
- Living in Santo Domingo, toys were expensive to come by, and I started collecting comic books. but even those were pricey. And there were no stores that had back issues.
- I came back to the US and slowly got into action figures, and comics.
- Stopped collecting comics focused more on figures.
- Started doing reviews on my own tripod site. I regrettably deleted it when I moved.
- Started doing reviews on youtube, while also blogging.
- Decided my other blogs were to sporadic created this one.
So here we are today.
At first I didn't want to show my face while reviewing. But thanks to Expo TV, that's a requirement.
But I feel that it gives a better impression of me to my audience. In my own life I don't rock out to nerd rage, because no matter how you want to spin it, we nerds do not appear normal to regular people.
Lately I've been proclaiming "I'm a Design Guy!" And it's because I'm a visual person. I gravitate to things that look good to me. It's rare that any of these qualifications have lead to disapointment, but there have been some things.
The purpose of this blog is to do reviews of items I can't do as a video. There are some items that I really want to get to reviewing. But doing a video is time consuming and sometimes fustrating when the camera decides to act up on you.
It's also here for me to make posts about how I see the hobby and my unique experiences collecting. Since I have been doing it since 1999.
Toy Lines I've Collected: These are lines that I actively pursued, trying to collect them all.
- Toy Biz X-Men
- Micro Machines Star Wars
- Mobile Suit Gundam (US Figure Line)
- Star Trek 12 inch (Playmates)
- Star Trek Model Ships (Revell, AMT)
- Marvel Legends
- Kaiyodo Evangelion
- Transformers Cybertron
- Star Wars (mostly troopers because of helmet sculpts)
- G.I. Joe 25th Anniversary
- G.I. Joe Sigma 6
- Mobile Suit Gundam 00 (Model Kits)
- Marvel Universe
Well That's it. I have sold, thrown out or given away a lot of the items from the lines listed above. So if you want me to do a review on a certain figure, you can ask. I'll see what I can do. But since the possibility of someone going on Ebay and buying something old, than just stepping into Target and finding something new, is slim.
Usually people looking on Ebay already know what they want.
My Site and my Youtube channel are listed under educational. that's because my goal is to educate and sometimes incentivate potential buyers of the product that they wish to buy that I already have.
