I've been seriously collecting action figures for the past
decade. I started out with the WWF Hasbro figures in the early nineties. At the time I was kind of dumb and took
them out of the packaging. I didn't make the same mistake again when I began buying the WWE Jakks figures in the
late nineties. Since then I've completed the entire Speed Racer set (made by ReSaurus) and got into the Simpsons
Interactive series (by Playmates). Although I bought just a few of them at toy stores, I've found an excellent
source for finding figures (both loose and packaged) that I need at various toy shows and through bidding on
eBay. The 12 inch Star Wars figures (by Kenner) is another
collectable I found myself searching for, although I did make a great effort to center the collection solely around the
Galactic Empire characters. In the year 2000 I was at a local toy show when I discovered the world of
Funko Wacky Wobblers! These "Pop-culture" icons captured the essence
of my childhood in the seventies. Of course this craze began my craving for the ceramic bobbleheads, mostly I've collected
mascots from various teams that I have seen play. A few of them are stadium give-a-ways. I used the same theory in my
acquistion of the replica stadiums. Each statue represents a ballpark/stadium that I have attended a live event during
the course of my lifetime. All of the stadium statues were produced by the
Danbury Mint. In 2003 I began collecting the
McFarlane Sports Picks, for my collection, I have selected
the players that have been on my various fantasy league teams over the past 15 years. My collection of 1/18 scaled
cars are great pieces representing some of my favorite TV shows and movies that I watched as a youngster.
Recently, I've begun collecting the adult-sized Championship Belts made from molds of the actual belts worn
by the WWE Superstars themselves! Just left click on a logo image to the left to navigate to the corresponding page
which has scans and digital photos of all my fine collectibles.
Enjoy the collection!
