    What is your most prized collectible?

    My favorite collectible is the SMW Toad cookie jar, circa 1990. It is ceramic. The head lifts off to store the cookies. I'm hoping to eventually get Yoshi.

    What's yours?

    That's hard to say. I would say it's my 1974 Roadrunner, my Stormtrooper armor set or my Boba Fett armor set.

    Plus I got a Rubies Darth Vader suit but I've never donned it because I'm too short to pull off a decent Vader.

    I'm trying to own all the Imperial armor sets from the movies I like. I still need to acquire a Biker Scout Armor set and a Snowtrooper armor set (this one will be tough). I really am not too anxious for the AT-AT Driver armor set.

    My original Fortress Maximus, definitely. My grandparents came through BIG in getting it back from a cousin in Vermont. Sure, it's not mint and Spike is missing-but it's the one I tore open Christmas morning all those years ago. It's pretty special to me.

    I also like my Brave Maximus I nabbed for $160 on eBay "to resell". I will resell it eventually. Granted, it's been about 4 years, but who is counting?

    Well, I've got this drop-dead gorgeous, blue-eyed, crimson-haired Irish doll... Definitely one of a kind.

    The poster I had signed by Stan Lee in person. I already had a comic signed by him that I got through the mail, so I almost didnt get his autograph. Had it not been the only way to even talk to him, I probably wouldnt have, but knowing he signed it in person, with me standing there makes it more valuable to me.

    Does that imply that she's a possession? That's pretty evil, Jackie O...and I like it!

    I love your armor sets, Benny. You should let me borrow the Vader suit. I'm 6'7" and would make a pretty good Vader. Bwa-hah-hah! I will don a Vader suit at some point. And my wife will pretend to hate it but actually be quite amused.

    My favorite collectible? I was going to say Bronze KG from SDCC. But Chaz-Man's post reminded me that I have some old X-Men comics signed by Chris Claremont. #266 (first Gambit) is probably my favorite of the lot.

    Yes, I've noticed that MOTU seems to draw some very tall individuals. I wonder if there is a correlation there.

    And you should put on a Vader suit at some point. The ladies dig a man in all black...

    I guess I'd say my large Storm seahorse. It's Aquaman's steed and was produced in limited numbers by Tonner. (I think they only made 200, but I'm not positive.) Mera and Storm were going to be limited editions to Tonner's annual convention and San Diego Comic Con, but they were such a hit that both sold out at Tonner's con and never made it to Comic Con. They only kept one to display at SDCC. A guy that works for my comic shop went up to the Tonner booth the last day of the show as they were tearing down and asked if he could buy the display Storm and they sold it to him (and then he to me). It's so friggin huge, though, I never had a place to display it. My husband was finishing our basement last year and I had Storm in a closet down there. Then, while we were out of town, the basement flooded and was completely ruined. I lost THOUSANDS in collectibles. (And thousands more in furniture, etc.) But somehow, the door to the closet where Storm was stashed, swelled up with water and became air tight! So everything inside was intact! It was the power of Aquaman, I swear! This Storm was already the very last one, then he survived this calamity?! It was truly a blessing!

    So does she.

    And as you well know, Benny, sometimes bad is good.

    Mine would be my Adam West Batman memorabilia.

    I have an umbrella and hat used by Burgess Meredith in "Fine Finny Friends" and a set of cat ears worn by Julie Newmar.

    Just out of curiousity, how well have those old bat-man episodes aged? I used to love the show when I was a kid, but it's been forever since I've seen an episode.

    It depends. It's campy and sometimes silly, but that was all intentional. It's NOT dark or gritty. If you liked 'Batman: The Brave & The Bold,' you'll probably like it. I liked the fact that Batman & Robin are in costume nearly 90% of every episode. With other shows, the hero is always in their secret identity until the very end, or like twice an episode. Plus the villains are so colorful and over-the-top. No random crime bosses or evil executives here!

    What is the most prized item in your collection?

    Just like it says...
    What is your most prized item in your collection?
    Id say keep it to one item...but Ive been here long enough.
    Post yer pics if you have um!!

    This is an Asian Ball Joint Doll
    He is made by a company named Soom.
    He is made of resin and hand painted.
    To my knowledge, be it as it may, there are less than 500 of these made and even fewer with the company paint fully intact.
    70cm tall
    He freaking rocks...oh he has hooves but too hard to photograph with my phone.
    You can take off the hooves and put on human legs but it takes about 30 minutes to do that!
    You can take out the eyes and hair too.



    I hope to see what you all prize most.
    Maybe cost is your deciding factor or memories...whatever...just share!

    We actually have a thread for this already. Not many people responded to it though because a lot of people were unhappy with me
