Introductions / New kid from Ontario
« on: September 23, 2009, 03:24:45 PM »
Hello all. Where do I start on my introduction.... well, here goes.

I am a kid who has grown up around toy collectors,  Barbie, corgi, matchbox, Sunshine family and of course the old 12" Joes. So because my father collected GI Joes when the ARAH ones came out I got a bunch for birthdays and holidays and the such. Of course when the Hall of Fame series came out, being 12" tall my dad went crazy and had to get them all for him and me. I grew up loving joe's of all sizes. But for a reason I will not go into I had to get rid of a lot of my stuff and so went all my toys. Over the years I would collect all kinds of stuff, like Star Wars (and I mean Hardcore Star Wars) and would constantly find myself selling everything off. Once I got out on my own and had to work to pay the rent, I stopped collecting completely.

Then came along a reimagined show called Battlestar Galactica. The show blew my mind and I had to have whatever I could find. Due to my old toy collecting ways, it brought me to a forum called minimatemultiverse where I go by the name pickle. Once I completed most of the line, which is almost finished, I found myself in a position where I can collect other toy lines. I tried a few different things like statues and vinyl figures but found myself growing bored of every line.

Then Rise of Cobra came out. Well, I loved it. The best worst film ever. lol. Just a popcorn action flick. I actually saw it for the first time on my bachelor party. After the movie I would think about how much I loved GI Joes growing up, and I had to have some. I already had the Croc Master 25th figure that I got for christmas because he was my fav when I was a kid. I needed more. I collect anything 12" (old and new), vintage 3.75, 25th anniversary, 3.75 Rise of Cobra and fiction (DVD's, Comics, novels...) but mostly Cobra. I joined the Joe club and a different forum.

I found it funny that Transformer collectors had their own Canadian forum but not Joes. Well I found out this morning that I was wrong and had to join. That brings me here. Even though I have only been collecting for almost a couple months, I feel like I have found my toy line.

Anyway, Glad to be here and I have already discussed with the wife that there is a Canadian Joe Con. We already hit up all the Toronto Toy shows since we stated dating, so it was a no brainer. Living near Kingston makes it easy. Hope to get to know some of you guys and glad to see all the Canadian fans. Also, this might sound a little forward, but if there is a member with an extra Chacal Noir (Black Jackyl), I would be very grateful to some help.
