#194 – Toys

Back when I first started using ebay I was addicted to trying to buy all of the star wars toys I could never have when I was a kid. There were a couple kids in the neighborhood that always got all the cool stuff that I never did. None of the newly purchased toys were ever as cool as the old worn out ones that survived my childhood.

    I’d much rather read a Timothy Zahn Star Wars book than play with Star Wars toys. That being said, I do have an extensive collection of Star Wars Legos that covers my shelves. Although, I wish I had $500 for the new Collectors edition Millenium Falcon, with over 5,000 pieces, it looks like quite the piece of (good) work.

    Oh my goodness, I used to watch the original trilogy all the time when I was little. I wonder why I stopped. I’ll have to start again, soon. Anyway, back in relation to the comic, I fear that may just happen to my desk someday. It would appear that my beloved plastic buffet table can only hold so much, aside from my computer and TV. T_T

    XD! Man, Biff does things I always wanted to try. I wish I had an upstairs toy room. XD

    That’s exactly why I keep my toy room in the basement.

    For those who like (or obsess over) such things, I recommend this website:
    ===[http://www.reasonablyclever.com/lego.html]

    …Where LEGO-designs are described for original models, & PDF’s can be downloaded to make them yourself!

    Oh man, I’ve seen a few of these, wondering how the top bedroom doesn’t collapse under all that weight.

    Lol, Star Wars.

    Aaaaaaaaamen, Chris. I love all things Star Wars and used to collect the old toys before I discovered the joy of reading Star Wars books.

    Those are the packages of the said toy collection.

    Oh my god, my friend used to get all the new toys and game systems too! It got pretty annoying, but i could always go over to his house to play his SNES. ^_^

    hmm, funny, I discovered the weight limit of my Lego shelf just the other day…

    discraceful, for a grown man to be collecting to-

    hey, is that a morpho ranger deluxe

  13. APic says:

    I have a ton of old transformers toys.

    My toy room is also in the basement, like mal’s. If the floor collapses there, I’m going to need to admit that there is a problem with my collectiveness.

    If it wasn’t for Ebay I would never have found the Care Bear Braveheart lion that I have regretted giving away my whole life. He is currently sitting by my computer watching me type.

    My main collectables are cards but I do have a large amount. Sadly, the only cards left are my chikorita pokemon card with the second evolution in the same case and my yugi-oh cards. At least they have a spot of honor near my tarot cards. Also, My Dark magician and Musician King are kept in a spot of honor away from the other cards and it a special case since I don’t have enough of those card holding things for all my yugi-oh cards. I’m pretty good with my Yugi-oh deck.

    Damn, sorry, I rambled. I wish I had a toy room like Biff, then my parents wouldn’t have to throw out my toys, they could be creepy dust collectors!!!

    He has a lot of the same toy…

  18. Rachel says:

    Thats a lot of toys.

    My cousin used to get everything he wanted. He’d go to Wal-Mart with his parents for groceries and come back with 5-6 toys. Whenever I went over to his house, I would go into his toy room and climb over his piles of toys to see what I could find. I ended up like Biff quite often.

  20. Elkian says:

    What kinda toys are those, all the same package?
    Maybe he bought in bulk and will sell on eBay in twenty years (to pay for hospital bills).

  21. I prefer Bionicle, personally.

  22. Ian says:

    Well, since he knows the other toy room may break, he’d better get over there and reinforce it…and that other one, too.
