Your first action figure
Posted in Action Figure Chatter
I don't mean what did your Mom buy you when you were tiny or something, but what was the figure that started you off collecting or customising.
Believe it or not, this is my third time of collecting!! I am 36 years old now, and collected Star Wars, Action force (G.I. Joe in UK), Micronaughts and anything else in that scale (A team, C.h.I.ps, Mork and Mindy, the lcove boat, star Trek the movie, Disney's the Black Hole, ANYTHING!!!).
These were eventually passded on to my little brothers and finally flew off t0o that great toybox in the sky.
Then later in life, I once again picked up on Star wars, and got a nice little collection of the original figs together. At the same time, I was collecting and customising/dioramising metal fantasy minis.
More recently (about 2 years ago), I somehow ended up with a series 2 Human Torch, and thought he was totally groovy.
I did a search around (I didn't know what series/brand to look for, as he was loose when I got him), and I found the site Marvellegends.net which is put together by a member of these boards!!
Anyway, since thenand with all your help on here (and a wee bit of input from EBay!) I only need about 7 figs to complete my collection!!!!
Anyway, sorry about the essay, I am just interested to know if a little bit of a silly gift has flamed up into an obsession wfor anyone else????
