    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    Toy Collecting has become a passion of mine in 2007 when Hasbro released the 25th anniversary of GI JOE, My childhood favorite toy! It gave me a good opportunity to buy a vintage toy line  with a modern new look and the same vintage art work that took me back to when I was a child. Life as a kid was the best, running home after school to watch cartoons and play with my toys!

      Now as an adult , collecting takes me to those good times. Talking about anything from the A-team , GI JOE, HE-MAN, PLASTIC-MAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE , THUNDER CATS, Marvel legends and even Richi Rich  is also sometimes call Pop-culture and is Fun to do!

      Hanging with friends and going to Comic-con with friends and family has become such a big part of our life that it has become our yearly vacation spot to meet other people with the same intrest! Comic-con is no longer just a place for geeks to meet, but people of all walks of life to come together and remember the toys and comic's that have changed our lives as we grew up.

      I have also created a facebook toy page for people to visit and talk about toy's and tv programs and movies of the 80's!  Superman , Ghostbusters, Gremlins, and Rocky are a few of the 80's movies that I have in my collection!

      visit my Toy page and join in the Fun!
