    Action figure collecting (with kung fu grip)

    More from MHCHICAGO

    I've been collecting all my life, and I own a collectible store

     

    I've been a lifelong action figure collector, when Transformers and the smaller GI Joe were big in the 80's, that's when I really got heavily into collecting. Plus of course, Star Wars.

     

    Now that I'm older, I now own and operate a store in Chicago that specializes in catering to people my age, mid 30's, who grew up up in the late 70's early 80's, and are watching all the Transformers and GI Joe movies, and remember all the toys they used to have, but maybe Mom threw it out, or they went to college and it ended up in a garage sale. They make most of what we had as kids again, just like it was when we were kids, and that's a big part of what my store is.  Even Ninja Turtles.

     

    In addition to everything I have in the store, I personally collect toys, comics, video games, baseball cards, and movie posters, just about anything you can imagine.
