I unloaded pretty much everything, since I grew up in the GI Joe, Transformers, Voltron, He-Man, Thundercats, Garbage Pail Kids, Wacky Packages, 80's Baseball Cards, Beast Wars, Cabbage Patch Kids, My Buddy and the Atari & NES era - I got to play and collect with some cool shit.

I was one of the lucky ones who went to a wild party in the late 70's with my dad and came home with my mom.

The only thing I can remember really collecting are comic books, for maybe 4 years or so in my mid-teens. Incidentally I've just come across my collection about a week and a half ago. I've started reading them and have been feeling all nostalgic this week. I'm thinking I may price some of them this weekend when I get some time. Mostly out of curiosity , I don't expect much, although I do have some fairly old comics in good condition so you never know :)

I don't hoard anything either, most of the stuff I have I'd easily get rid of- if shipping wasn't a pain.

I am in the same boat as Bort. In the 70's - 80's, my brother was a huge star wars fan. He basically had every one of the original toys. When we moved in the 90's, my mum thought his too old for these now, and gave them to charity. If you check the prices of some of these original figures now, in boxes, they can reach as high as 10,000.

A friend of mine was too young for the original star wars release toys in '77. His brother got one of each figure. Many years later, after 2000, his parents got a divorce & had to sell the house. While cleaning it out they found in the attic, that the parents had bought two of each figure, & stashed the 2nd set away in a box. Many years of humidity destroyed the adhesive & cardboard, but I know he was trying to flatten them out. Dunno what he ever did with them.
