I have to say, I have been on this site for years and is probably one of the best 'collecting' forums out there! Was just wondering outside of collecting our beloved Star Wars memorabilia, what else do you like to do? Do many of you collect other vintage toy lines like Transformers or GI JOE?
For me, I love to golf. I am huge into cars. I have owned many Mustangs and other Fords. In the past few years, I have gotten away from collecting toys and starting collecting/investing in coins. This has been a great and rewarding and also new addiction of mine. I could never have enough gold or silver coins. Like I said, I've really gotten away from collecting toys. My wife and I have started a family (our son will be 4 in August), we have just purchased a new house which I have sold my coin collection (for a great profit!) to help fund our home purchase.
But now, since our top priorities have been taken care of (family, house) I feel like the collecting toy bug is starting to hit me again. Especially since my son is just getting into watching Star Wars with me and playing with some junk vintage figures I have. Also, I am looking into collecting just my favorite GI JOE figures I had as a kid as well as G1 Transformers. I never had the opportunity to have many Transformers toys, just GI JOE and Star Wars.
I hope to hear your experiences.
