Toy Hoarders... Top Three?

I forget who I was talking to about what but during the conversation I had a though. I then had another beer... or two...

anyhow, eventually I sobered up enough to remember the thought premise so here it goes...

So of us here on the board are hoarders. By this I mean than it's not neccissarilly that we want to hoard... but one of our favorite toys comes around at a price we can't say no to... so we don't, even though we already have a few of them sitting on a shelf.

I'm famous for my jetfire fetish. I bid on lord knows how many a month and rarely win, but every jetfire with armor I score in my price range shipped... I'm not gonna complain. It doesn't happen often but the times it does I jump on. Yeah I have a boxed jetfire [or few] but even though I don't need them, and already have enough junker 1/55's to make a custom army from, I still can't help but buy any orginal vf with f/p at a price less than a reissue. Unfortunately not all things can be gotten as cheap as a reissue.

But anyhow... I want to know what toys others hoard. We all can anme a few individualls that have 12x of every 1/48 AND rare stuff like a beta... so I want to limit this to the individuals top three hoarding items. As such... you loved the 1/60 roy strike and bought 30... that counts. Have 1 1/60 signined by the creator AND a taiwanese whore... I don't care and you prbably shouldn't discuss sch stuff Anyways as you bever know who might show up at your wedding :unsure:

so... what do you have the mostest of? I'll start off with my top three...

#1... jetfires... I actually have no idea and estimate by volume... enough...

#2... zen officers pods. [matchbox till somebody else makes one] 6 complete

#3... Yamato 1/72 vf-19a [in all it's blue goodness] 3, 2 mib and one paint chipped in box.

for extras... as I know there are many like me who wouldn't mind a duplicate at the right price but have yet to find one... I had to bid on, and thankfully win, doubles/multiples of...

gundam 1/100 s-heavy type rx-178 s-heavy speacial 1 mib, 1 cwb, one loose

gundam 1/100 rx-178 musha cloth type [x2 both mib one with poster]

there is other stuff I have stockpiled but nothing cool, especially since godzilla aquired my "army". Just wondering what else everybody else is hording.

:note... I don't mean for this to become a bragging rights in your face thread. We all know some folk can afford 12 of each 1/48 as it comes out. I can't and as such thats not what I ask. I want to know your top three and numbers. You could own 5 transformers... 4 ravage and 1 sound wave... ravage would make your list. 100+ 1/48's... great... which three do you have the most of?

got one of everything... what do you have doubles of? You get the idea. I have many cool toys but I don't "play" with any unless I have a "back-up"{ in case part of a twa 747 falls from the sky destroying it..., or my dog eats it..., or my cats/wife vomit on it..., you get the idea. If somebody only owns four toys, and one of them is a duplicate... I want to know what that duplicate is. ;)

I don't even know if a FP would count, but they are quite pricey to not mention them.

I Forgot about fastpacks. 1/48 x 10, 1/55 x 13.

Looking at the title of this thread initially I thought we were supposed to vote for the top three toy hoarders. :lol:

Yeah. If I had only known that the '48s were coming out just a few years later, I never would have even bothered with the Bandai's...

3 x 1/72 HCM VF-1S

3 x 1/72 HCM VF-1J

3 x 1/72 HCM VF-1A

Uh, Sithlord, if I remember your collection correctly, you have three of FRIGGIN' EVERYTHING. Why did you decide to single out those particular items?

Sad fact, As a rule I don't keep duplicates. The only time I have two of something is when I'm mixing and matching pieces or came across something at such a great deal I'm just holding it for an investment (and the stray "ooops" gift someone gives me).

3 x Rick Hunter MPC (Don't laugh, I bought them as half price for an investment and am hoping eBay will convert them into xmas shopping money this year)

I also have a few extra Alphas but heck if I know which ones at the moment... they'll probably get sold around xmas too :)

Yes I have 3 displayed but I keep one boxed of Macross stuff. The idea behind singling that part of my collection is that those 3 are my top 3.

The 3 x Rick Hunters I believe is good to cash in. I have 4 of those that I might sell with their cells which IMO is worthless but good to have. It's unbelievable how much these are going up in price even though their bootleg versions of the original HCMs.

Well, I've since sold them off except for one, but at one time I 7 Devastators + another Mixmaster. That's 43 constructicons! I was really addicted to combiners when I was into TF's (i still have one of each) and here's the breakdown when it was at it's worse give or take a bot :

7 Devastators (and an extra Mixmaster)

5 Bruticus (and an extra Onslaught, Brawl, and Swindle)

5 Superions

3 Predakings (plus an extra Rampage and Tantrum)

3 Computrons

3 Defensors (plus an extra Hot Spot)

2 Menasors

2 Abominus (plus two extra Blot's and an extra Hungrr)

1 Piranacon

That's for a combined total of : 173 Transformers, or 31 Gesalts. God I was sick.
