Hi, Wishing_Well here. I have a question or two I would like some others to answer. This was probably asked 100 times already but who cares.
Are there any collectors in the hobby that simply bored of it and just don't care whats out and whats not? I've been a strong collector since 2002, now you old men that say "that isn't long enough, your not a true collector". Well let me ask you, what does it take to become a true collector?
Amount of money put in?
Owning tons of merchandise you don't even want, but you bought it because it had Star Wars on it?
Because I already loss interest, I mean A LOT. Here are some factors that made me sorta quit cold plastic.
-Don't I have enough?
-Consumer Reactions(petty complaining and what not.)
I remember me buying almost every figure from every wave. I used to buy characters that I didn't even want, but used "because I don't have it" as and excuse to justify it. I even considered selling my collection a couple of days ago. I don't know, maybe because I'm starting a new chapter in my life soon, Post-High School, start with a new slate, sell my past. I already decided that I'am no longer buying doubles anymore, 2 weeks ago I bought 2 RFTs to add to my three, when I got home, I was like"*sigh...why did I buy this". The only person that will see them is me and the only one to enjoy them is me, I only need just one don't I? A couple months ago I went on a vc45 clone spree, I own like 10 of them. Sure some people may say "I need more for my diorama so its more epic".
The collecting in me died last week. I'll probably buy ones that I think are appealing, no longer ones that I just want to have.
