You getting the new stuff Seiber, or are you into the older lines?
I collect the Masters of the Universe Classics line. I don't collect the TMNT or vintage MOTU figures. I'm extremely familiar with both lines and can spot their parts for figures from the vintage lines out of a massive pile of parts.
I've been buying vintage collections of both series and have about 500+ figures from each toy line currently. I clean them all up, put them with their accessories and then list them on eBay. As I'm going through these collections, I take photos of them in order to reuse the photos on their respective future fansites. This was the only way that I could figure out how to feasibly do other fansites. It's a different strategy and business stance than I've taken on Seibertron.com. I'm extremely passionate about Transformers and have been for 28+ years ... I just want to expand the concept so that others can enjoy my vision of future fansites.
The new sites will be hybrid sites that combines online retail with some of the elements all of you have come to expect from a fansite.
One of my ultimate goals is to open a warehouse with a store inside or a brick-and-mortar store here in the northwest suburbs. I've got a ways to go before that can happen but I've been laying down the foundation for it one step at a time over the past few years. Taking it slowly to make sure I've got all of my ducks in a row.
Current Want List:
Beast Wars Returns Strika, Sixknight (stickers or replacement), Browning, Dai Atlas, Guard City, Battle Gaia, Marlboro Wheeljack, and more!
