I've been collecting for a few years now, though as a casual collector, but my toy collection is quickly filling up an entire room at home and much of my cubicle at work. I'm mainly interested in figures and toys from movie and TV licenses that I really love. The Muppet's is my first foray into near-hardcore collecting. This is the first line where I'm actually making an attempt from the very beginning to collect as much as I can including keeping some extra Mint versions for posterity. Other than the Dr. Teeth repaint (and Kermit in a box if you count that) I've got the rest, and mean to continue with the line and get as much as I can. I missed the beginning of the Simpsons line having no idea they would actually get around to making the cool characters that I really like. Nor did I know that by the time they did (starting with the Comic Book Guy) the first couple series would be long gone from shelves. That taught me a lesson about collecting which is, get in at the beginning or you'll be paying big money later on. McFarlane's influence on raising the standard of Action Figures as well as tying them into unique cult licenses is what turned me on to action figures, something I never even cared about a few years back. Being way too late in the game to start attempting to collect Star Wars figures, I recently started collecting Star Wars Legos instead. I'm not a completist, but I've got just about every ship from the Droid Escape Pod to the Millenium Falcon in Lego form. It's sad when you are excited to spend $100 just to get a Leia minifig.
