    I've converted my Fiancee's younger brother. Birthdays and Christmases we try to get him either a new figure (Cotswold) or some gear (also Cotswold).

        That, ladies and gentleman, is a TRUE collector.

      Where I'm at right now is trying to fill a couple of holes in what was once a collection of over 75 figures and half a dozen vehicles. I don't even bother with the vintage stuff anymore since I lost most of what I had in a rather ugly divorce (never mind I had owned all of it since I was a child) and am now concentrating on Timeless and 40th Anniversary Joe/Action Man, with a few Geyperman re-issues thrown into the mix. My daughter and I are currently working on a Patrol Boat and Flying Saucer based on the cheap plastic sleds you can buy at discount stores and dollar stores, and I'm hoping to eventually complete a 1/6 M24 "Chaffee" tank I began a couple of years ago. Cotswold is my main source of replacement/reproduction parts, and I've got a few kit bashes I've done. So, even though my collection is smaller, I think it is actually more varied now, and I don't think I'm going to give up the hobby anytime soon.

        Wow, sorry to here about losing your joes to the ex...Ive had to get rid of some boxed sets in the past that go for HIGH dollar now, what with Ebay and all, due to money issues...Not the same thing, but still hurts....Honestly though, I think half the fun of this hobby is the hunt...

      Thanks for the sympathy, but it was over 10 years ago, and now I can be a bit looser with my collection. Heck, my daughter and I have regular playtime with the guys and her AT Barbies she put together with Cotswold parts and a lot of imagination. I'll leave the vintage stuff to guys who don't have rowdy children and cats; the repro stuff is much easier and cheaper to replace, plus, I don't have to feel bad about a repaint or camo job here and there.

        Kinda back where I started. Even though I have boxes of untouched stuff in storage, I'm still compelled to keep the Joe flag flying. Really interested in picking up some more repro stuff like the Falcons. I've gotten some great stuff in the last year or so and I want to spend some time really messing around with it. Unfortunately a lot of it I purchased and then just sat it in boxes. So I'm going to explore some of that, while picking up some new stuff too. It's an odd time in the hobby and yet, I'm really excited for some reason.
