    I have spent literally thousands upon thousands of dollars on toys from various film and TV franchises, such as ALIEN, DOCTOR WHO, JAMES BOND, PLANET OF THE APES, PREDATOR, ROBOCOP, STAR TREK, THE TERMINATOR, THE WALKING DEAD and so on and so forth. But mainly DOCTOR WHO and STAR TREK. I've spent so much, that my home and contents insurance has a special section devoted to my toy collection - and another section that's devoted to my extensive DVD collection.

    With the DOCTOR WHO toys, they are mainly in the form of the 5 inch figure range. I have several Dalek armies, several Cyber armies, an Ice Warrior army, multiple versions of almost all the Doctors and so on and so forth. If you want to see what I do with them all, look here...

    You'll pretty soon get the idea.

    Im not a collector, but I have a few action figures. I have Pinhead(Its the coolest one I have), Freddy, Michael, Leatherface, Ash, Kick-Ass and Hit Girl.
    I still need an alien, but I always only see the wrong ones, I want one with a smooth head. I also need a Jason, but I never found one I liked.

    Actually, I don't consider myself a collector either, just a 49 year-old kid with the coolest toys in the neighbourhood!

    I collect all different kinds of toys both vintage and modern. I've been buying a lot of the new Madballs lately. I got these guys in the mail today.

    I have a small collection of STAR WARS figures, mostly the Unleashed figures. I also have a 12; FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER that I bought at a Kay-Bee for $3 because someone cut into the side of the box when they were unloading them. I've the McFarlaine Ozzy Osbourne and Alice Cooper figures (never picked up the Rob Zombie one, but someday). Then I have a Comic Pack with Wolverine, and the STAR WARS Comic Packs with the A New Hope reprints and figures.

    If only I had taken care of all of my toys growing up. Between HE-MAN, STAR WARS, GI JOE, plus all of the baseball cards I used to have and comics I had as a kid, I could retire.

    Anybody have a Fidget Spinner? It's fun to do & there are numerous YouTube instructional videos.
    A senior citizen being amused by such a simple device proves I'm still a kid @ heart or its time to send for the "white coats". They were being sold in a street corner canopy tent and of course my friend and I had to satisfy our curiosity. This is the one I got, later finding it at Amazon for a lot less $.

    That looks like it could be easily modified into an extremely effective and lethal weapon - and I don't mean Mel Gibson.

    Mine is 2 1/2" diagonally from point to point. Also, it's got a solid weight to it. Sharpen the points and yes, I do believe it would be a functional weapon. There were some larger, but this weight is easy for me to handle. This one is not mine, however it has LED'S & I bet it looks cool in the dark.

    It's easy to get hooked isn't it? Have you been able to balance it on your thumb yet? Took me a couple of tries to get co-ordinated.
