What's your favorite toy?
Anything that makes me dream, smile, wish, hope, or laugh.
Really I have alot of favorites. I think they compliment each other when displayed making a whole collection greater than the sum of it's parts. Zliks are great for taking on vacations though easy to put one in your pocket and their eyes move for taking pictures.

How'd you start collecting?
Star Wars. Statues and Busts comic figures. Then came Comic-Con 05 and that year really got me into the vinyl and custom collecting!

Who's your favorite artist?
Doktor A and Andrew Bell

Where do you live?
Tucson Arizona

Is it nice there?
So far I am loving it we have only been here three months. I still have alot to see. Air and Space Museum. Some caves, Saquaro National Park, etc, etc. I am such a tourist no matter where I live. I already bought my year passes to the little Zoo down here :lol:

Do you like pie?
Yummie pie is so much better than cake. Cookies and milk are my favorite, but a piece of Apple Pie with Streusel is deliciously second.

Thanks!

What's your favorite toy?

I like them all. It would be hard for me to pick just one and hurt the feelings of all the rest. So I won't.

How'd you start collecting?

I've always loved toys. Started when I was a kid and COBRA would invade Endor before being defeated in Eternia. Once I was married and had too much space there was nothing better to fill that space than new toys. Now that I have kids, I can use them an excuse when Springfield goes to war with Earth 2 in the living room.

Who's your favorite artist?

I'm a big fan of Frank Cho. Love COOP. Edward Gorey, Charles Addams, Maurice Sendak. Just discovered Brandi Milne's stuff - it's amazing. Kathy Olivas, Andrew Bell, Picasso, Basquiat, so many...


Where do you live?

Lexington, SC

Is it nice there?

There is a week in January when the humidity is gone, the wind is light and I can actually breathe. It's nice then. The rest of the time it is hot, humid, dirty and I'm surrounded by ignorant rednecks. But worst of all there are no vinyl stores in SC. :(

Do you like pie?

Yes. Cherry. No apple. Wait, is there cake? I would rather have cake.

my first post...

What's your favorite toy?
El Brujo Narco

How'd you start collecting?
I'm relatively new to collection. I saw the El Brujo at Munky King in LA, bought it after mulling it over for a long time. From there, I got into a couple cases of Inventsville with the intent of flipping. Flipping turned to buying others for flipping which turned into keeping and now I'm hooked.

Who's your favorite artist?
Right now, it's a toss up between Kathy Olivas and Blaine Fontana. Attaboy ranks pretty high too.

Where do you live?
The LBC

Is it nice there?
No, it's terrible. Stay away.

Do you like pie?
Had some tonight as a matter of fact, Snicker Ice Cream pie to be exact.

What's your favorite toy?
At the moment it has to be Blue Hell's Proprietor by Glenn Barr.


How'd you start collecting?
About a year ago I had a booth at a Designer Toy event in The Netherlands with my plush dolls. Since then I have bought a few toys every month and now I have a small, but nice collection of toys made by artists whose work I admire.


Who's your favorite artist?
My favorite artists at the moment are: Kathie Olivas, Brandt Peters, Julie West and Glenn Barr. But my all-time favorite has to be Pete Fowler. I love his Monsterism Island toys.


Where do you live?
The Netherlands


Is it nice there?
It's ok, but to be honest it's not my favorite country. Not much happening here if you like designer toys and low-brow art galleries.


Do you like pie?
Yes, Dutch Apple Pie

Welcome Miss_Oneyes....I too have a big soft spot for Mr. Fowler's work.

We just got the new series of Monsterism, they're really beautiful.
