Welcome to the forums ?, hmmm? Now maybe the riddler or the question for an avatar, or maybe something entirely unrelated, like my screen name and avatar. :D

Hi. Glad to be here!

I've been a toy collector since I was a kid in the 1980s. I'm 34. My first love was Star Wars, then Voltron and then G.I. Joe, with a smattering of other stuff in the mix (Gobots, Silverhawks, Real Ghostbusters, etc)

I work as a video and multimedia producer in the real world, and in my spare time I also run a web channel and Facebook portal devoted to toys and socializing with other retro-toy collectors.

I'm currently trying to collect some odds and ends in M.A.S.K., a few figures/toys from Wheeled Warriors, a piece here and there in Kenner's Raiders of the Lost Ark line, and I also need a front cannon for a Buck Rogers starfighter! HAHA! Eventually I plan to move on to RoboForce.
I make videos about vintage toys! Have some laughs at Retroblasting!

You should be fine now mate, we have a post limit to protect us all from spammers and other none desirable images. I'm sure you've past that limit now so just upload your wips to a hosting site such as photobucket then paste the IMG link in the forums. Let me know if you're still having trouble.

Hi guys an Girls my names Steve im from the UK and the Turtles have pulled me back to small scale action figures.
Collected all the original Marvel legends up to series 6 complete then started to buy the odd ones from the series after that. I only recently sold them off but im no looking at the cool customs that are coming out and they really get my creative juices going. Allways loved Hulk stuff as my background is bodybuilding/weight training.
Have some figures for sale and looking for some planet hulk figures 6" in any condition ?
Im into 1/6 figures as well but increasing prices have stung me. Dont know what it is with ACTION FIGURES but have allways loved themin everyshape and form. The quality of sculpt and paint have just gotten better and better over the years. Toybiz mattel mego etc I have collected them all at one time or another. Hope to get some dios made up soon and crack open some long forgotten hulks. Heres to shareing some stories on here soon all the best Steve. :D

Hello !
It took me some time to find where I could introduce myself, as it is the rule on all forums, but at least here I am.
I never meant to collect figures with some structured intention, but I must admit that over the years (I am 64) I have gathered what can be a kind of collection. (rather small one on fact) of somewhat interesting, strange or unusual plastic representations of (more or less human) beings.
As most (nearly all) other forums about figures are dedicated to one or two "main intentions" in collecting, as military, or historical, or fantasy figures, what makes me feel out of context, I ended up here.
The surprising thing is that when I wanted to contribute by posting an answer to a question, and also trying to post a topic, the "system" forbade me to place links and even pictures.
I guess the reason is to prevent spam, but I do not see how I can post a sufficiently explicit or interesting message without any link or picture, and I am surprised, as this is the first time I encounter such a rule on a forum. I know some others probably have to spend time deleting some 50 spammers or more every day.
So, despite the apparent great interest of this site and forum I'm currently stuck in silence, unable to contribute.
Thank you for having read this last message I'm sending, hoping it won't be lost somewhere in the intergalactic space.

Kind regards.

Redman.

PS: what can I do to be allowed to post with links or pictures ? If you force me to pass an examination on Star Wars or any other known series of adventures, I will fail

Is posting here smart when trying to convince this board I'm human, and thus unlock posting and PMing privileges? I certainly hope so!

I believe it becomes unlocked after 10 posts.

Hey everyone, I'm Jordan! I can't say to that I've done much with figure creating just yet. I'd like to, I just havent' started yet. Which is kinda why I came to this forum for advice, and more. Now, I'm actually an avid spending for collecting figurines. I love collecting things other than figurines as well, such as basketball cards, and mini-busts, but figurines are definitely where it's at for me. I just graduated from high-school, about three weeks ago! So I guess that's one thing worth being mentioned. So yeah, hope to see everyone around! \:D/
