I have always wondered if the day would come when I did not want to buy toys, and what it would be like. Well this past weekend I found out. Knowing that June 2nd was Transformers/Fantastic Four day at Target and Wal-Mart I went to check out the new toys. Well I have to say I do not want any of these toys. With the aisle filled with the new movie toys and Spidy 3 toys I found myself playing with them and checking them out but not having any desire to buy any of them. It was a weird feeling, yet it did not bother me. I have had to cut back collecting line but this was an all together different feeling. I know when ML and JLU end so might the hunting. Toys are now becoming more for kinds and less for collectors even with wide the character selection. I think over all this is good, because this will create a strong market and maybe keep our collector type lines going.So is my time as a collector of toys numbered? Maybe but I will always have comics.
So this is what it is like..
