Any of you guys collect toys? I've got a bunch of sealed action figures that I bought for one reason or another, but I really don't have any use for any of them, and no space either. Mezco Hellboy and other stuff. Any interest?

I've also got a copy of Earthboy Jacobus, which is by Doug Tennapel (Earthworm Jim, The Neverhood, etc) Looks great, just didnt care for the story.

Other than my TMNT figures, pizza launchers, party wagon, and a few Megaman X figures, I never got into it all that much. I never had the money to sink into it, and I sure as hell don't have it now. :P

That's not to say I don't love the damn things; everytime I see them in a store somewhere I gotta check 'em out. Few people understand what I like about them, though.

Yeah, I hear ya, that's why I have what I do. Jesus Christ though, I don't know why I needed a case of Hellboy toys, but they looked so cool..

I collect World War II tanks, planes, tank destroyers, etc.
Blame Panzer General for this!
There is a great store in NY that i go to, the models are assembled by experts.
I have no patience to put one of these babies together.

I'm only posting this because I just wrote some image thumbnailing code and I am pleased with myself for it was somewhat easy (and if I really thought you guys would actually buy anything, I'd actually comment and give prices and list all the other crap that I left out that I want rid of YAR.)

Just for a size reference:



That's pretty kickass, it's a lot better then the one i'm currently using, which takes the size and link as a parameter. It doesn't work with phpbb very well.

I use a bit of ajax code to resize pictures (and links) on the fly in phpbb http://gamerhistory.com/forum/templates/mw3.js

I had something like that javascript, was using it for a site design I was toying with but never got off the ground. Resizing-on-the-fly stuff is interesting, but I don't know javascript pretty much at all, so definitely not well enough to make it do what I want.

For my thing, it turned out getting ImageMagick installed on LL's crappy shared hosting was pretty easy, so it's then pretty easy to turn around and do thumbnailing - way easier than I thought it would be. So easy I'm kind of ashamed of myself for waiting this long to play with it.

That balrog is pretty badass, btw. Again, I have nowhere for any of this shit, but goddamn if I don't want one now :)

I sell dumb shit on ebay! http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZurevilQQhtZ-1

The only video game related things are my complete Donkey Kong for Gameboy and my GBA with a hacked in Afterburner.. being a reforming packrat is tough when nobody else actually wants your dumb shit.

I really hope you called it "Roger Clemens 1993 Startling Lineup figure" on purpose.

I have a few posable figures, for display purposes only. I got Freddy Krueger, some TMNT, and a superman (Brandon Routhe version) figure.

Keeping this dumb thread alive, if any of you guys have old complete GB games laying around that you don't want, my old complete copy of DK just went for 19 bucks. Way more than I thought it would.

Nice!

I sometimes wonder how much my shrinkwrapped Legend of Zelda would sell for, and then I remember eBay, but then I remember how lazy I am and completely forget about it for another year.

If it's the gold one, you could easily get $300+

I wasn't going to post any more 'look I sell crap on ebay!' threads, but, apparently Chex Quest is worth something! God bless Doom mods that come in cereal boxes.
