Recently, my wife was watching an episode of The Big Bang Theory where Sheldon and Leonard received MISB Mego Star Trek transporters. It just so happened that on the same day, I had just gotten in a figure that I'd been pining for - eHobby's Deep Cover. Every instance of this figure that Id run across was MISB, as I guess people just don't want to open him for some reason. I was pretty pleased with myself and couldn't help but show him off to my wife.
|See, honey, I can set goals and achieve them! Also, don't expect to see a review of him until like June. Backlog.|
|Curse you fictional character!|
I can't even imagine looking at collecting anything other than precious metals as some sort of investment where you should track the value of it. My collection is insured for about twice what I feel it's worth, but I'm just thinking about what it would take to replace everything should something catastrophic happen. The last time I worried about something I collected being worth something was 1993 or something, right before I stopped collecting comics until Dreamwave brought me back with their Transformer comics.
|Seriously, this comic ruined comics for me for a decade.|
Maybe I'm just being cranky. I do have a birthday a week from today, and I'm notoriously very cantankerous about getting older. Who knows, maybe a week after posting this, my feelings will change. Doubtful, but that possibility always exists.
