It has been a year now that I've been collecting! I remember when I created my first Blogger post last August 19, 2012 entitled Collection and Combination where I said that I would only be collecting certain action figures in certain toylines, and combine my favourite teams of superhero characters and build-a-figures but damn... I didn't thought that out from it, I have covered a 6.5 feet tall 6-row shelf in a matter of a year.
Originally, it was Marvel Select, Marvel Legends, Play Arts Kai, Masters of the Universe Classics, and Transformers (which I am still working on) that I want to focus on, but as I go on toy hunting, I have discovered other cool and classy toys and collectibles like those from DC Direct, Revoltech, McFarlane Toys, NECA and Kotobukiya.
Upon looking at this inevitable collection expansion, I decided to cherry pick these collectibles and action figures that are meant to be kept while sell others on eBay or trade them at Kool Stuff Toys, a local toys and collectible store just right around my area.
I created The Combollector as a sort of my "diary" for these adventures I have been through with all these collectibles and other geeky stuff related to it, while the other blog, Combollector's Action Figure Collection which, thankfully, had more pageviews than this blog is like an "encyclopedia" of the action figures I've hunted.
And so... I wanna move forth with this "hunt" for another year and see how my tiny room can handle the expansion (which I'm sure it would still have another spot for another shelf). But right now, I wanna give myself a pat on the back for The Combollector has turned one year last Monday (August 19).
