Welcome! First time here? Sign up and say hello

Post by Wednesday Toys on Tue Apr 16, 2013 12:47 pm

Welcome to our little sanctuary where we can freely talk about toys. Why not let us know you're reading by saying hello? While you're at it, why not tell us what brought you here and what sort of toys you are into?

I'll go first! My name is Jarrod, and this is my first night at Fight Clu... oh wait! Moving right along, I love toys. I remember playing with toys in the 80s and vowing that I would never grow up. I fought hard to keep as many of my toys as I could over the years and now have a small collection of toys spanning over three decades. And I like everything about toys - even their packaging.

My passion has driven me to create a small online store called Wednesday Toys where I get to share the awesomeness of toys with others. My favourite toyline of all time is G1 Transformers, but I especially like robot toys of all kinds - and I LOVE checking out new toys.

Chris Lee here.
Artist and game developer with a long term interest in turning my own characters into action figures.

Jarrod, well done mate for setting this up. I look forward to many discussions on the toys we grew up with and the new ones that blow us away today.

For me that is the new and interesting third party transformers, pose-able figures from awesome artists like Four Horsemen and the amazing super pose-able Japanese action figures from Revoltech.

Hey Chris, thanks for coming by, good to see you here Smile

There are some really interesting things going on in the world of toys - it's just a shame that they don't receive much general publicity.

One of my goals with this forum is that between us we'll know all about of the awesome toy releases and events, and that a great toy line doesn't slip past us due to ignorance.

Also, if you are interested, one of the events that looks promising is the Toy and Game Expo in Sydney mid-year... I don't know if that is something you'd like to check out, but if you are think link for it is http://www.toyandgameexpo.com.au/

Eric! Thanks for swinging by! I've got the figures you sent me front and centre in my computer desk above my monitor - and I never fully appreciated just how wide Rigs are! The spip is in the foreground, of course - and I'd never really paid much attention to crayboth's before, but that metallic blue one you sent me is just gorgeous!

Hopefully my order from Onell Design will come soon, and your little guys will have some company Very Happy

Yooooo everyone Very Happy Yoooo Jarrod--Moradin FTW!

Haven't been into toys in ages really, guess since I stopped playing with them on my bedroom floor buuut, I know there's all sorts of awesome collectables out there. I guess growin up my #1 toy (based on quantity) would have to be GIJoe, my brother and I had about a bazillion of them. But, my absolute favorites, and ones I actively sought to collect (before ebay, was hard) were the Aliens and the Predator lines. Even got a Dark Horse Comic with the figurine! Played the hell outta those Very Happy Then my mom sold them all at a garage sale for like $20 bucks when I was 18! Bahahhahgrhghghg!!! Some things you just can't get over! Baahgahhgarhghgh!!

Fil! Thanks for joining! Yeah, mums can be so heartless! I meant to ask you, do you have any toys at the moment? Did anything survive the infamous garage sale of doom?

And if not... is there one toy that could turn your head to start buying again? What toy, or toy line, would it be?

(and Moradin is pleased with you)

For sure - really thrilled you all could make it here to check out the forum! I've got a bit of spruiking lined up for Sunday which may lead to a few more people joining up - but I think we're off to a good start for being such a young forum!
