Collecting toys & memorabilia: How did you start?
July 16, 2014 By Paul Bryan
First of all, welcome to the new look World of Superheroes site. I’m here to share my love and knowledge of toys.
A little bit about myself, I have been collecting toys and collectables for the past 15 years and have a varied range of toys ranging from Manta Force to Yogi Bear! The bulk of my collection and the reason I started collecting….
Transformers! I used to love them when I was younger, I mean come on, it’s a truck one minute and a robot the next.
It all started not long after I entered the world of work and I found myself in Toys R Us looking for a present for one of my younger brothers (honest!). Whilst there I thought I’d have a look and see if the Transformers range was still going. Thankfully it was, and once I clapped eyes on a Robots in Disguise (R.i.D) Optimus Prime the memories came flooding back. Straight away I thought to myself, “I like that, I might have to look at getting one of those”.
Before I knew it I’m at the till buying Power Rangers’ figures and the R.I.D Optimus Prime!
Now the beauty of having younger brothers is I always had an excuse to be around toys, not that I needed an excuse.
So started my obsession with all thing Transformers (I might have passed that on to my brothers too) which gradually grew into a passion for almost anything Sci-fi or superhero-related.
But that’s enough about me for the time being.
What I’d like to know is, how or why did you get started with your collections? It doesn’t matter if it’s Star Wars, Star Trek, Transformers, Marvel, DC, Thundercats or GI Joe, we’d love to see what have. It could be large collections or that special piece. Leave a comment below
I’ll get things rolling wih a picture of that (it still has pride of place) R.I.D series Prime I mentioned earlier.
