    So basically a thread where you can ask other fig collectors 'Am I the only one who' so and so......and then get answers to find out if you're just a freak or if we're all freaks.



    Am I the only one who just stands there and looks at my toys?

    Yes.

    Am I the only one who has seen a fellow collector at a store and has been rather amused to see what another looks like?

    I'll usually look at my figures instead of interacting with them, but that's only because they're all clustered together, so I worry that if I remove one from the shelf, the others will all fall down.

    I'm usually more concerned with getting everything I may want before they get it before me to notice what they look like.

    Am I the only one who gets really annoyed when another collector has grabbed up the last of a figure I want, and then try to keep an eye on them just in case they decide to put it back, so that I can grab it up as quick as possible?

    ^ Hasn't happened yet.

    Am I the only one who never pockets their car keys when hunting and keeps them in hand the whole time they're in the store?

    Well I don't bother doing this anymore. But I guess this is a question I would have asked when I first started collecting ML.

    Am I the only one has a younger brother who has had a thousand birthday's?


    I used to tell the cashiers that I was buying figures for a younger brother, even though I don't even have a brother, for his birthday.


    Here's another question.


    Am I the only one who is more excited about getting a new figure but ends up feeling unfufilled after opening it no matter what the quality of the figure actually is?

    Am I the only one that isn't ashamed to admit that they still buy action figures?


    No....seriously...why do collectors always use the "birthday" excuse? I've never ever been ashamed of any of my hobbies and have even worked in my toy collecting into my act.

    Why do we do that?...I think it is to look more...casual? I don't know, but every time im hunting I do not pocket the car keys.....

    This must be something general...IMO. :whatever:
