Welcome to the Penny Arcade Quasi-Official Toy Thread!!!It's been five years...
Since the previous thread was started. Twelve
years to the prior one. So it is that time again to start up a new thread.
Toys have changed over the years, but the reason for them has not. Inanimate objects created for playing and entertainment. They made be made out of wood, plastic, metal and other materials, but they are all the same in the end. This thread is for anybody to post photos, geek out about your newest item, post information on something, and generally be sociable about collecting. Got dolls? Action figures? Transforming robots? Spaceships? Stuffed animals? Keeping them pristine and graded for future generations to enjoy? Busting that box open, playing with them, and taking them to bed? Go right ahead post and share your thoughts, we will not judge.
Here are some websites that have been used by people to buy their toys:Big Bad Toy StoreHasbro PulseEntertainment EarthSmart Doll Designed by Danny ChooHobby Link JapanAmiAmi
Of course the loss of Toys R Us in the USA has led to these stores/sites taking over for most mainstream toys:TargetWalmartGameStopBest BuyAmazonAmazon Japan
To start this thread off right, here is a somewhat recent photo of my toy shelves.
As you can see I mainly collect Transformers and Star Wars with a smattering of random Japanese robots.
