I am quite surprised. I expected a lot of military figures after seeing your rifles. Also most of your figures are the older generation. Some of the DML figures I didn’t even know exist. The Ghillie suit for example.
Thanks for sharing. Due to this hobby’s nature there will be constant updates necessary though
Hey, there’s a reason I refer to the weapons as the pride of my collection!
Budgetary concerns over the past while have led me to stick mainly to weapons. Link, Ada Wong, the custom Jill Valentine, custom HUNK, custom mercenary heavy gunner, and VTS Tracy are the only figures I’ve put together/acquired in the past few years. I’ve got a great job now but will soon be saving up for the $800 Lego Millennium Falcon.
As a Lego fan, a Star Wars fan, and a Lego Star Wars fan, there’s no way I can pass on it.
There was a period in the first few years after I started the hobby where I hunted down rare/iconic DML figures. I think a lot of them are still unique enough to stand the test of time!
Isn’t that the truth. I find many collectors end up really narrowing their focus for these reasons, especially with figures running up to the $2-400 mark depending on what you collect. For myself I try to keep boxed figures to specific areas then just focus on the loose parts that are of interest.
That’s the way, I guess. I already wonder how much money people would’ve to spend who collect every nation of military figures, like US, Russian etc.
Just imagine you’re an Iron Man fan Where are they now? Mk LX? 60 times USD 250?
Like the weapon collection, I retook them all with my iPhone XS. Much more natural lighting, the harsh flash of my Nikon made the figures look really toy-like in the old pictures. Well, they ARE toys, but you know what I mean.
Not that many new acquisitions in the past couple of years. I continue to primarily be a weapons collector. Revamped my custom HUNK with higher-quality gear to match his loadout from the Resident Evil 2 remake. Soldier Story’s ISOF duo. The VTS hunter from Bloodborne…or is that “Blood Hunter,” heh. The custom realistic GK Spade J I shared a few months ago.
