My Self-Introduction

Posted in Action Figure Chatter

Hello General Action Figure Chatterers,

I am brand new to the site and I simply wanted to introduce myself. I already dropped a huge question post on the forum that is awaiting review and I figured I might want to introduce myself to the community at large as well.

I collect predominately female action figures, though not exclusively. I was the boy who played with dolls whenever he got the chance, in particular I am fond of the She-Ra: Princess of Power line and spend a significant amount of my resources around building up my She-Ra collection. Generally though, if there is a powerful female lead or secondary character, that's the one I want the action figure of- be it the White Queen, Starbuck, Teela, or Wonder Woman.
When it comes to male figures there are no real parameters for collecting beyond being a child of the 80's and 90's. I have a set of TMNT's (including master Splinter of course), also I have several working sets of the X-men, a burgeoning collection of He-Man figures, and a small array of G.I. Joes. I have a vast collection of loose and carded Star Trek figures centered mostly on TNG, Voyager, and DS9 as well as mostly complete sets of Babylon 5 and Farscape action figures.

I am mostly interested in joining the community to learn, to meet potential contacts for trade and buy/sell, and for the camaraderie of socializing with fellow collectors.

Hope to get some replies, thanks in advance,

-Danny McHale /naobe

Honestly, FR The realm is the the best site out there. The admins/mods run it extremely well and the atmosphere is really friendly. Some might complain about it on other sites(Apparently the world doesn't hand them enough B.S- tho this concerns ppl who make customs and I suppose want critiques rather than just praise 4 praise sake)

WELCOME! I shoulda started w/that, right? It's a great time for females figures, isn't it? Damn, I remember the late 90's when all these c and d characters were coming out w/no articulation blank stares and gravity defying boobs. I am trying 2 build up my fem collection, myself. Honestly, it's the only new type of fig I will buy nowadays tho I haven't bought many period. $25 is tad steep 4 me...

Good luck w/your collection- share some pics, yo!

I've been looking around and it seems like all the popular toy forums I remember are ghost towns, so let me know if you find an active community too! lol

I read that people chat a lot on Facebook now, but I don't like FB

Welcome! The tutorials on the realm are an awesome place to help with your customizing skills. I haven't bought from or traded with anyone on the forums yet so I can't speak to how well that works but everyone I've met here has been great. Good luck with your collection!
