Nate Vance (SuperPowerNate)


Hey guys!

My name is Nathan Vance. I've been collecting toys (specifically action figures) since the mid-nineties. I'm interested in the history of toys and consider myself to be fairly knowledgeable of all toys, especially once licensing media properties became prevalent in the 70's. My favorite hero is Batman, and I consider myself an expert on his history. I am a family man, and enjoy spending time supporting my Wife (Cammie), and three beautiful daughters. They are all active with extracurricular activities at school, and I'm right there to see them every chance I get.

Occupation - ABO/NCLE certified licensed Dispensing Optician in TN and VA

Hometown - Bristol, TN (also currently residing there)

Collecting interests -
*Anything Batman related
*Mattel 6-inch DC Super Heroes
*Super Powers
*Indiana Jones
*Masters of the Universe

If there was a toy line I'd like to get into in the future, it would be the Mego World's Greatest Super Heroes. I have a few, but nothing crazy.

I also enjoy frequenting yard sales, flea markets, antique stores and junk markets. One man's trash is another man's treasure!

Nate.. Do your daughters get involved in all with your collecting? With my son its a no brainer and he is all about it, however my 9yr old girl either thinks its really cool, or is a total waist of time depending on her mood that day. Ironically she does love comic books and I take her to the store from time to time to get old issues. I was just wondering if you had any good approach to getting the girls more involved?

I have a 14 yo daughter and i have tried to get her interested in collecting things like Barbies, Littlest Pet Shop, etc. Nothing stuck. I tried taking her to toy shows with me when she was younger and now she won't even think about going with me, they bore her to death. Anyway, good luck!

Re: Nate Vance (SuperPowerNate)


It's funny how different sisters can be.

The oldest one is the "nerdiest". She loves art, she's currently playing Skyrim and loving it, and she is in the band at school. She thinks all my toys are neat, but she can't be bothered learning all the names. She likes to draw pictures of Spider-Man and Superman, but she told me the other day that she loves my toys because one day I'll pass away and she will get lots of money for them. (true story)

The middle one likes the sculpting and the thrill of the hunt, and the history of the toys, but she could care less about the fictional value of the characters themselves.

The youngest one loves the characters and their backstories (especially the female characters), and she's even bought me a few here and there, but she's too lazy to collect anything - and even if she did she'd lose them.

So to answer your question, Jon...I haven't been able to get any of them interested, although I could get the middle one to go to shows and stuff with me, she gets junk drunk like I do. She's like me in the way that she loves to learn and discover, so maaaaybe she has the best chance. Right now though, it's all about her boyfriend and the fact that she's going to High School next year, lol.
