I've been here only a short time, but the forum has taught me many important things. One, spend wisely. You get what you pay for. Two, do your homework and find out everything you can from manufacturers and collectors. Three, be sure to check test cutting, weight and overall appearance. Find out what you want before you buy. That's the key.


Now, with this knowledge and understanding I have made my decision regarding my first purchases. I shall take the money that I saved and hire ninjas to attack the homes of Nathan Robinson, Patrick Kelly, and Chad Arnow and steal their collections.







It pays to do to know what you want.

Might want to consider asking the Temp Agency for a few more helpers if you are serious about trying to pull this off.

Looks like all that will be needed to thwart that bunch is some stainless steel wall hangers lying around as a distraction. WTF?!
