I used to collect toys and rummaging around in my upstairs loft, seeing all my old collectibles got me wondering if anyone else around here ever collected toys other than Star Wars.

My most prized pieces would be Colorforms Outerspacemen collection, some late 60's wire bendy toys.


I have everyone in the picture except Colossus Rex (green scaly guy back center) and Astro-Nautilus (purple octopus alien). Pretty cool toys.

Another thing I collected a lot of was the Masters of the Universe toys. The classic Castle Grayskull, He-man, and Skeletor. I have quite an extensive collection of the figures, playsets, and vehicles. However, the rarest piece I have is the Eternia playset, which is huge. This thing is over two feet tall.


I also have an old Shogun Warrior Godzilla...


[Note: these aren't my pictures...haven't quite motivated myself that far yet Cool ]

A way we connect with each other...and I guess thats why I do toys. That connection." -Ashley Wood

I collected toys until pretty recent times, actually. I've been meaning to sort through my room and get rid of a lot of them, but some I'm going to keep and pass on to my children. Some of my favourites:
-I'm not even going to mention this one, because I'm sure you can guess. Wink
-Lego
-Toy Story+ Pixar
-Dinosaurs
