I too grew up on channel 56 and Force Five.
My favorites are the Starvengers and Gaiking.
I Also love the Micronauts, Transformers, and Robotech.
My interests in toys change a lot over time, though certain things remain the same. I'll always have room for Transformers, gokin, Super Sentai, Brave, MOTU, TMNT, Lego, Gobots and Star Wars in the collection. But I like the stuff that's a bit off the beaten path as well, like Starriors, Sectaurs, or Starcom. If I had unlimited funds and unlimited room, I'd be going back into my past and grabbing all the old Mego superhero figures I could find, Micromen, Godaiken, Shogun Warriors, Godzilla's Gang, Inhumanoids, Dungeons and Dragons, etc. I didn't have nearly as many toys when I was a kid as many others, but I had a really odd assortment.
I mostly collect car & train models, but there's the occasional robot in there.
Godzilla figures and models kits as well as alot of anime from the 80's and 90's
I love collecting Saint Seiya Myth Cloth EX figures, I collect them cause I grew up watching them since I was a kid, my favorite anime and the best of all time
I started collecting robots when I was very young. First ones in my collection were Shoguns, Raydeen, Gaiking, and Danguard. My parents got some crazy deals on a ton of Shogun toys in the late 70s early 80s when King Norman's (Old toy store like Kaybee) went out of business. Shoguns, Dougrams, and some other rare stuff like Batrain. Then like a dumb ass when I was in my early 20s I started selling all of them on Ebay. Now I am trying to reclaim my youth by repurchasing all of them. Also collecting the SOC series from Bandai. I make yearly trips to Taiwan for work and get to Robot shop.
I am a complicated man. No one understands me except my Robots. I collect 80's GI Joe, Star Wars, Pirate Lego, and of course Chogokin. 72 is my birthyear so I got to see Mazinger, Gatchaman, Danguard and all the greats on early cable TV. My first Toy I remember was my Great Mazinger Shogun Warrior. It was as big as me and had firing missles. I will be posting my Chogokin collection soon. I keep it at my office at work (and my boss is not happy about it). My real name is Lance and I am frequent feedback provider on the show. I love the show each week because Atom and Josh take the time answer fan's questions. I can honestly say there is no way I would have dropped the money on all of my favorite toys if I did not get quality reviews and info from everyone on the site. Yes, I spent a lot but I am so happy to have all of my old super robot pals right at my desk each day.
I've been a fan of robots since the early 80's while living in Asia. Had lots of neat die-cast toys but didn't take good care of them. Now I'm starting my collection from scratch.
I've been collecting Transformers since the 80's. While I loved Robotech, back in the day, Macross has surpassed this by tenfold. Havne't been able to quite start collecting Macross yet, but soon enough...
Old fart , Super-robot/anime fan since my
early childhood back in the '70s.
I especially love all the Mazingers' series.
Likes 80's transforming robots that include plastic, diecast and rubber.
I dig robots. Mostly shogun warriors, vintage popy, macross, and diecast stuff. I've been collection since I was 10, hardly ever played with my toys as a kid. Still own the machinders my parents gave to me for Christmas in 1982. :)
