remember when syfy use to be called the scifi channel and they showed science fiction shows & movies 24/7? Yeah me neither. I can see whats going to happen in each episode already, each room is going to be filled with crap, the person is going to tell the owner to fill up one room with shelves put stuff on said shelves and then store or discard the overflow. If you cant figure that out on your own your a frakin ******. I miss Stargate, SG-1 & Atlantis not that SGU crap.

I may be wrong but if your collection is taking over your house isnt that hoarding?


And isnt there already a TV show called hoarders?

That was my first thought as well. I'm guessing they're just cashing in on its success.

Worse, now we're spending three times the money on 3rd party figs. If Hasbro started making figs collectors wanted again, our wallets would breathe a sigh of relief

"Figs collectors wanted"? I could've sworn collectors wanted Classics-ish Shockwave, (Scramble City) Combiners with individual robot modes, First Edition re-released, etc....

It was a hasty statement and I fell into the same line of thinking as Griftimus, much to my chagrin. I stand corrected.

We lose Sanctuary and Eureka, and gain THIS. More reality show crap. I guess it was that or more s**t movies about killer or giant killer animals.

Warehouse 13 is the ONLY reason I ever tune into that channel anymore. When that's gone, so long SYFY.

Can't tell is sarcasm, or serious. If you're serious, I worry about your state of mind a little. Not everyone can just afford a bigger house wenever they want. Heck, I can't even afford cable or internet, and have to go somewhere with free wifi to use the internet, let alone a new house.

Regarding the press release, I feel that if a collection is to the point where its making your house unlivable, or causing financial problems, or even relationship problems, something needs to be done.
Also, there is a difference between six, hour long episodes and six hour long episodes. They should have caught that.

SyFy has definitely lost its way of late. The only good thing about all this reality TV stuff is that I watch a ton less TV than I used to.

As far as the topic on hand, if you have your entire garage full of figures and you cant pay for house/utilities/etc, something is wrong with you. I love collecting figures, but not to the extent it overwhelms and my life and finances. I set aside a room downstairs to house my "dudes" and once that is full, Ill probably seriously ween my collecting or start selling/boxing up stuff that isnt my favorite. I dont want people walking into my house thinking that Ive lost it. Im also a neat freak and if I cant keep a figure behind glass to keep the dust off, its staying in its box.

At least it gets sold away. If you do get a decent price for it ... why not? :lol: Like the show says, it access what is worth to keep, and what are the rest to go. Those people better have good damn idea on the value of these...

Eureka will be missed. :( Hopefully they'll find another new show next season that can grab the audience. They really need to.

Did anyone catch the show? At the end they showed clips from future episodes and there will be a TF fan as one clip showed someone handling a very minty looking BB Action Master wearing gloves. It was being handled over a box full of boxed TFs so that drew curiosity.

The show IMO over all was entertaining being a reality show, but I started to wonder how often shows like these are scripted in any way. :VEHI:

I saw it last night. It was interesting and fun to see the collections, but I wouldnt watch it with my wife again, doesnt exactly show collectors (at least the ones featured) in the best of lights. Some of it was a little creepy.

What drove me nuts was the way the intervention was conducted ie...you need to reduce the collection and sell SOME of it.....let's start with the oldest, most valuable and most sentimental stuff you own. They're trying to force the poor lady to sell vintage stuff. Lets start with these 3&1/4" figures you have under your bed. They are the hardest to come by, take up the least room, and mean the most to you? HUH? Shouldn't they start somewhere else...like the Revenge of the Sith poster in the living room or the Stormtrooper pancake maker. Get the toys/novelty items out of the kitchen before going through whats under her bed.

I was rooting for the collector as the vultures swarmed. At one point before commercial they teased her getting upset at the auction. I kept yelling to my wife "Shut it down, shut it down!". When they came back from commercial they actually showed her say something like "I need to shut it down". YES!!!

Tonight on Travel Channel is the episode of Toy Hunter featuring a Rodimus figure.

i think what scares me more is the thought of seeing a rare grail along the lines of grand/brave/fort max, black zarak,overlord or some lucky draw piece completely destroyed because it wasnt properly stored or cared for. for that id weep for sure.


god do i miss stargate/SGA ....oh well at least ive got the dvd's >:oP

As if I'd sell of my entire collection. Sure, maybe a few of them that I don't care about, but not the entire collection, especially if a whole lot of them are 1,000 bucks. If someone told me to do that, I'd tell them to **** off.


Well, maybe I wouldn't, but I'd be pissed nonetheless. :roll:
