Hey Darth Ray. Welcome to the boards.

I am pretty much strictly a 3 3/4" figure and vehicle collector. I have most of the original Kenner line from when I was a kid and I am trying to keep up with the modern Hassbro line.

The prop replica lines are a little pricey for me unfortunately.

nice to know u guys...
I could not start my collection until I came to canada, becuz we did't have MR in the hometown at that time...
I'd like to have'em all, I mean all figures and props, but seems i gotta spend another 10 grand to get'em and sounds not possible...
nice thing is, i still have several figures and about half of .45 replicas though...

here is the link I put most of the pics on web

Longtime lurker, first time poster so I guess I'm kind of an old newbie.

It's always nice to see another lotus-lander. I would suggest we all get together, but...well...the city folk are an awfully long way away. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I don't know who collects the props in the Canadian forum. I think some of them look really cool, but I just can't justify getting into them. With vintage, I can always say "It is recapturing my youth." Modern toys are a little more of a stretch, but I can say "It reminds me of buying toys as a youngster." Props? I would have to admit I'm an obsessive fanboy (no insult intended to prop collectors http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif), and psychologically I am not prepared to say that yet.
