wrestlemaniacx Posted August 11, 2011 Share Posted August 11, 2011 Hey guys, This being a lazy day off from work and having nothing better to do i decided to start some random topic here i'm sure there's quite a bit of collectors on here, me being one myself, and i always find it intresting to see how others go about it. do you collect everything, or mostly figures, or mostly other stuff , or belts or..? I have been going through phases, i started off collecting everything i could find related to wrestling and build up a massive collection, tons of moc figures and whatnot but over the years i sorta lost intrest in figures and sold them off, then started focusing on more specialty items, for example, i have a few wcw porcelain statues,a royal rumble ringside chair, a few wrestlemania plaques...more "fancy" stuff and not toys altho i don't want that to come off as disrespectfull, cause i admire anybody that builds a action figure collection. Then i started getting into masks...i have always been a massive lucha libre fanand through my fandom i was able to get in contact with a few important people over in mexico including some mask makers and as i gained their trust/friendship i was able to buy quite a few ring worn/signed masks which i'm very proud of, when i look back at the few cheesy replica masks i used to have years ago i can't believe i ever thought they were nice looking....it's like comparing a toy belt to a real belt, there really is that much diffrence in quality. Now, as proud as i am of the masks, they have cost me a fortune already and atm i still have suite a few offers for even more real masks and this got me thinking, maybe it would be wise to really focus on them and make them my specialty ? the thing is, i have a hard time letting go off my non mask collectables but financially i feel like i have to choose cause otherwise i'll keep spedning my money on diffrent things and never get a decent bankaccount build up for my future, i don't want to be that guy who's 40 or 50 and still only has a few hundred dollars cause i blew everything y'know. i know there are folks who make replica belts their specialty and at one point i was contemplating going that route cause i am a big belt mark too but that hobby would be even more expensive than my masks. then there are a lot of folks who are really into the figures, specialy the old hasbros and ljn's and stuff, i'm a member on wfigs.com and i've seen tons of massive collection on there, it's really fascinating to look at for sure. so basiclly, do you think it would be wise to make 1 particular focus point, or do you rather have a bit of everything ? if anyone cares to show his or hers collection, feel free to do so.
