Yo, guys, VIR here.
I'm a college student who loves toys: need I say more?
I started collecting by definition in middle school with Star Wars figures. What started with a single Han Solo ended up with 50+ Star Wars figures and multitudes upon multitudes of Transformers, Joes, Riders, and what not.
I started collecting because of that one Han Solo. I wanted the only main cast, but then, well... we see how well I controlled myself. :B
