    I'm a child of the 80's, so I grew up during the American toy/marketing revolution that led to great toys and cartoons alike. Which means I was also around for the beginnings of the anime invasion from Japan and console gaming. I'm crazy about comics and wrestling too. Above all, it was cartoons like Robotech, Thundercats, He-Man, and especially Transformers that instilled in me a fascination for physical representations of the things I saw or read about.

    Transformers is still #1 in my book, but my interests have grown to so much more. And I always knew on some level I wanted to be a serious collector. Even as a little kid, if I wasn't playing with my toys, I liked to have them displayed in very particular ways and stored safely so as not to break anything.

    It was in high school then that I became serious, after doing the online retail thing for a bit and selling off my loose stuff. I realized packaging was important to me too. So I now seek to build the greatest post-70's toy collection in the world, one figure at a time. And while I'm at it, share the history and joy of toys by archiving and writing about them.

    I like robots. A lot. I started actively collecting in 1998, but I always had lots of toys as a kid. I had Shogun Warriors and Star Wars toys mostly. I was heavily influenced by shows like Force 5, Robotech, Voltron, Captain Harlock, Starblazers, Speed Racer and Battle of the Planets. Today, I run CollectionDX!

    My earliest childhood memory is of seeing a Jumbo Shogun Warrior Daimos hidden in a closet as a gift. I had all the Shogun jumbos as a kid, but none of the diecasts so as an adult collector, my main focus has been Jumbo Machinders, including Junior Machinders, Mini Machinders, Carnival Machinders and anything else that seems to fit into the genre but recently I've decided to try to collect, and document for the site, everything Shogun related. I do collect other things as well including classic American monsters, Japanese robots and kaiju, action figures, comic books, dvds, posters, Halloween costumes, board games and anything else that I think will look good on display. Basically anything vintage horror, sci-fi and fantasy is fair game!

    My current collection days started in 2006, with Bandai's SOC Getter's, from Getter Robo G. I mainly stick to die-cast content collectibles vs. toys and all items have a connection with various Sci-Fi iconic movies, cartoons, comics, etc... from when I was a kid.

    Been doing reviews for awhile, has been a fun road and enjoy doing them.

    Primarily a collector of all things Marvel/DC toy line-up. Did I also mention I do like imports?

    Ginrai's picture

    I like Macross and Gundam. Robots that turn into jets are good. I have some other random stuff, some Transformers, some Henshin Cyborg, stuff like that, but I'm trying to cull it down to the essentials.

    VZMK2's picture

    A big fan of both mecha and moe figures. Besides collecting toys, I'm also an artist and enjoy watching anime.

    djinniman37's picture

    I was a big fan of Transformers as a kid. Over the years, I picked up a few TFs to add to what I had left over from my childhood, and eventually I hada good sized collection. Now, I've expanded into other giant robot toys, notably Voltron, Shogun Warriors, and Power Rangers/Sentai mecha. Love to share the toy collecting with my two sons!

    BraveMSW's picture

    Collect mainly Takara DX Brave series toys. And whatever else catches my intrest. Some Transformers, some Macross and Gundams. But mainly beefy transformable and combineing super robots is my thing.

    Goldenage's picture

    Likes 80's transforming robots that include plastic, diecast and rubber.

    The Enthusiast's picture

    I love robots of many varieties. My work for CDX is more focused on the obscure or unusual, but most of my collection is made up of classic Gokin and Real Robot-era pieces. My favorite toys of all time are Diaclone. My robo-fetishes are diecast, transparency, magnets, and motorcycles, although you could say that goofiness, ugliness, weirdness, and obscurity are also fetishes.

    My favorite designers are Syd Mead and Kawamori Shoji.

    I am an architect in beautiful Denver, CO. My other obsessions are music, design, Vespas, and reading.

    I've loved robots since a found a discarded transformer lost on a beach as a child.
