About

Avatar picture is "Jet" of Cowboy Bebop. Good wine, friends, music, and a variety of other interests compete for my time and attention with this hobby. I'm retired now as of 12/01/12. Dabbled with interests in anime long ago when I had more contact with my young in-laws. Restarted watching Avatar the Last Air Bender series and Samurai Jack while recovering from a motorcycle accident late in 2008. Anime sites on the internet are now a source of enjoyment that are accessible almost anywhere through my phone.

Collecting since early 2009 when I discovered figures while looking for a keychain. I was directed to this site by a facebook contact. Lots of folks here have been greatly helpful to locating many of the "hard-to-find" items in the collection.

My wife is wryly supportive; she located the substantial portion of our bookshelves/display cases. Negotiations for space are a continuous ongoing discussion. She has her favorites too.

Since early 2012, I've begun BJD & Dollfie Dream collecting. That's where the majority of my hobby money has been going of late (other than necessary "new home" expenditures). I still selectively purchase figures, but with retirement, all my put off projects in my other hobbies are nagging me for attention.

Rejean235 Give her a weapon
Hi, I was looking at your collection when I read your post for ITEM #219009. When I saw you had 641 prepainted figures, I was curious to see how many swimsuit girls you had given your comment (99) although only 2 of them are in your 19 favorites (ITEM #125 and ITEM #29248. When looking at collections I sort prepainted to get rid of the rest since I strictly collect those.

I then read your about section in your profile; we have two points in common: I'm retired and started collecting in 2009. When I divorced and my wife kept all furniture, books, etc and I moved in an empty apartment. Therefore I was looking for something to decorate my new place.

FgrClctn (8 months ago) #19191277Belated Happy Birthday! Hope you enjoyed your day.
Thank you! Actually, my b-day is today XD I dunno why, but MFC seems to send the birthday reminders a day early to some people (myself included), but on the right day for others. Anyway, it's sunny, so it's off to a great start!

Thanks very much for the Birthday wishes! Here it's still December 10, so another few hours before the 11th; but you're the first to comment. Nice of you to think of me!
