Form a group with local collectors and inform each other of what you find (since you can't always hunt, someone from the group may be able to hunt a bit more than you).
Wal Marts get trucks every day except Sunday. Now they may not shelf every day they get trucks all the time.
Maybe you can help me on this, I can always make small talk with Moms, and Grandparents who don't realy know what they're looking at. For me it's a fun way to share what I know, and I like opening conversations with "You know they'll hate you if you get that one!"
These people are always looking for whatever advice they can get, and again, I love sharing it.
But as for local collectors, unless they're with a supportive girlfriend, they are very untalkative, you can tell even somewhat afraid of the interpersonal contact, and they run off
Maybe they feel embarased about being grown and collecting toys for a hobby, but I'm doing the same thing.
The guys that are taken are the exact opposite, they wanna talk, get coffee next door, and all that jazz, which in itself is kinda weird.
So I guess I'm asking, with out slapping them in the back of the head or sharing any of my women, how do I make the shy guys like the taken guys?
I wouldn't mind meeting some other collectors in my area. I know tons of sci-fi people, and I have fun with them. But outside of this, I could care less about most sci-fi. TFs are something very specific, and I wouldn't mind meeting some locals with that same particular intrest.
