Collecting

As you might have been able to ascertain, I collect stuff. A bunch of different stuff. Star Wars being my main addiction. However, it isn't the only passion I have. I also love Robert E. Howard's Conan & Red Sonja. Sometimes it seems much more fun to collect because it's harder to find. I like to go on hunts for things. I don't tend to be a big internet shopper. I like to hold something in my hands & really check it out before dropping any dough. Unfortunately it is also harder to collect because it tends to be pricey.


The above is a Polystone Diorama from Sideshow Collectibles. It runs right at $299.99

This one, which I absolutely feel that I NEED prices at $334.99. Eek. I just can't do that.

Red Sonja's tend to be a little less, but not enough that I can afford them.

$170.00

$70.00

$150.00
Ugh.


Even Belit, Conan's woman will run you a good $150.00 to $200.00.

What's my point? I don't know. I guess I'm just wishful thinking out loud & sharing with you, my devoted blog readers, how much I love Conan & Sonja & Robert E. Howard. Maybe I'm secretly hoping you will remember that, and someday if you come across a really cheap amazing deal on one of these things, your brain will click & you will remember me & think, "I have to get this for Jen!" and I will love you forever.

Just like Homer said: I could do a lot of things if I had some money.

I think if I had some money I wouldn't concern myself with things like this, but I'd buy a potter's wheel, construct an art workshop & travel. I think the lack of money lends itself to treasure hunting & trinket loving.
