Jeremy (JTobin)


Hi everyone, just ran across this site and have learned a ton so far, especially about production of figures in other countries and prototypes.

I've been a Super Powers fan since I my brother and I were each given the entire first series for Christmas when I was 2 1/2 (which would have been Christmas 1984 if that math works out) While those figures were mostly destroyed I've been rebuilding the collection since then. My focus is on loose figures, and customs. I think I'm made somewhere in the range of 60 customs in the past 10-15 years. I had dropped the hobby and collecting for the past five years or so due to getting married, moving, and having a kid, but I'm back customizing when ever I get a chance.

I'm an architect living in Massachusetts with my wife and 6 month old son whom I'm hoping will love Super Powers as much as I do in a few years time. We'll see.

Welcome Jeremy!

Glad you've enjoyed your experience here so far! Its definitely a wealth of information here.

Congrats on all the great life events! Happy to hear you're back into collecting. Any advice for someone about to start down that path? I'm getting married in June, about to start a new career, soon, buy a house, start a family, etc. All great stuff, but I cant imagine that collecting wont take a hit once all this stuff starts to happen.

Again, welcome!
Reid

Re: Jeremy (JTobin)


Thanks all!

Opey6, the only advice I can give you is try to stay as calm as possible and try to remember that you wife/girlfriend/partner is on the same team as you, so there is no need to fight her. I learned this lesson the hard way. Good luck!
