I never thought that I would still buy toys during my college years. But here I am, paying at least 10 bucks for a figure at retail stores or at toy conventions.
What are these toys exactly? And why am I all gung ho to buy these figures, despite that I’m a trifle cheap when it comes to spending on these type of things?
Well…they’re TRANSFORMERS. And these toys aren’t any typical toys you’ll ever encounter. They are distinctly unique and valuable.
When it comes to buying transformers, you just don’t “buy,” but you “collect.” When they are to be described, they’re not a pile of toys, but a sophisticated collection of articulated figures.
Yes of course, there is a hierarchy involved in this, that’s why they’re unique and valuable. These transformers are classified by lines, sizes, and rarity. (correct me if I’m wrong James, since you’re the epitome of an ultimate transformers connoisseur).
So how does my collection look like? At the moment, it’s quite small. I’ve only been collecting the ones I think that look “cool.” Therefore, I can’t call myself a true collector yet. Although, I’m getting there, I think.
So here’s a look at my minuscule-like collection:
Someday, these toys will be worth more than I paid for them, which is why I believe that getting these figures are worthwhile.
So far, my favorite from the bunch I have is Sideswipe, from the Universe toy line:
I have to give my boyfriend, James, credit to my collection because 67% of the toys I have is from him, 😛
