    Mr. UPS driver has just delivered my 18' Army of Darkness - Ash figure from The McFarlane Movie Maniacs series.
    Seen here- http://www.mcfarlane.com/toyfair2001...nch.intro.html
    I am 27 and I got to thinking, is it cool or pathetic to enjoy this stuff at my age? I have other Mcfarlene figures and some Simpsons figures too. Is it OK to not want to grow up?
    I am not looking for acceptance or approval, just opinions. [​IMG]

    Trust me that you should always do whatever you like. Just looking at the thread Matthew Chmiel started makes the point that you should never care what other people think. If you skip it because others may accuse you of never growing up, just tell them they're prematurely elderly!

    I say do what you want, who cares what others think. Whose to say what is cool anyway? Of course this is coming from someone who would be considered pathetic by most of the world [​IMG]
    PS: I own that figure as well [​IMG]

    I have got a HUGE Star Wars, Transformers, and Jurassic Park toy collection. You need to do whatever you enjoy doing and never worry about what people may or may not think. Because in the end, you are the one that goes home and gets to enjoy your hobby.

    Enjoy your Ash figure and ignore what other people say. Get stuff you enjoy, not what others enjoy.

    I have tons of toys and figures around my place. You're never too old for toys. [​IMG]

    I'm 20, and a couple of weeks ago I got a new computer, and so in the spirit of fun I purchased a brand spanking new copy of 'Return to Castle Wolfenstein'. My brother saw me playing it, and hasn't stopped bugging me since about how sad I am to be 20 and playing computer games? Is he right? [​IMG]

    Paul, 26 and still playing my RtCW. [​IMG] My reflexes may be slightly dulled, but I'm way more experienced and crafty than most of the kids out there.

    Tis very cool indeed. [​IMG]
    I have a vast collection of 'toys' and 'collectables' that I so enjoy having. Some bring back great memories of who I was with when seeing a movie, or even memories of my youth.
    I am always on the lookout for something new to add to the collection.

    First off, I envy you. I have seen the aforementioned Ash figure and want it desperately. I, alas, can't seem to talk my wife into letting me buy it. I was hoping to get it for Christmas, but I didn't. (I did, however, get the Jaws set and all but three of the Maniac figures) Don't cry for me though,I will wear her down eventually.

    Secondly, you shouldn't care what other people think. Enjoy yourself while you can. I have several friends who collect toys. Our ages are 30, 27, and 24. So don't worry, you're not alone.

    If you only did what other people liked you wouldn't be you. [​IMG]

    I'll go you one better, i'm 29 and still love collecting this stuff! I have all four of the 18" Movie Maniacs figures Ash, Leatherface, Micheal Myers, and Freddy as well the entire first and second MM figures (hav'nt gotten around to the third and fourth yet).
    No to mention all my other figures of Robocop, Chucky, Woody and Buzz, Predator, and McFarlane's 'Sleepy Hollow' collection. This is not conting all the stuff I have in the basement that I just can't find room for.
    I've got my eyes on these two full size figures of Chucky and Tiffany from 'Bride of Chucky' that they have at Spencers Gifts. They cost 80$ a piece! But i'll bag em eventually.
    I am 29 years old, but inside i'm more like 12. It's cool to collect this stuff, it's something else if you actually play with it.[​IMG]

    As long as we are on the topic of McFarlane toys, does anyone know where I can get a George and a Ringo from the first Yellow Submarine set? I got the John and Paul, but couldn't find the others before they went out of print.

    Please don't say eBay, because I'm not willing to spend a million bucks.

    Dear Rain:
    I'm not sure how to move the quotes around, so here's hoping you see this. If you're comfortable ordering online, you should check out TNC Universe. (http://www.ezcollect.com)
    I checked, and they have series 1 now in stock. Best of all they run from $9.99- $14.99. Or you can order the whole set at a discounted price.
    I have ordered from them before, and they come shipped beautifully. I've had no problems with them.
    You may also want to check out Galactic Highway. I'm not sure of the address. They don't have as much selection, though. But they're also very good, and reliable.
    Hope this helped. And if it did, you can order that Ash for me.[​IMG]
