In Topic: Our Collecting Strategies

09 December 2014 - 11:32 PM

Great topic - I'll just say a few words for now - I really feel that this hobby is akin to a crack addiction. I do not think there is ever a real end to our desires - our wallets are another story!! I recall meeting a very famous collector in Europe who sold his vast collection many years back (which he regrets). On the way out of a toy show he buys a small little reproduction robot telling me in a almost guilty voice that he just has to have a robot in his hands. Having said that I try my best not to make impulse buys and save for those pieces that most move me.

Not so much brave as simply not giving a damn about what other people thought about what he liked. He is a man that has always followed his own inner voice. I would think that picture was taken in NYC. As far as collections Bob has cycled through several quite diverse collections each time having the creme de le creme for that collecting genre.
