Hello Everyone

    "Hello, my name is Keith and I have a problem" ;) First step is admitting it :(

    I just wanted to say hello to all and I look forward to participating on these boards :(
    Born in the 70s but "grew up" in the 80s. Growing up in the 80s they are of course my favorite decade :(  I was a movie junkie as a kid and still am to this day. My father took my family and I to all the opening day showings of the Star Wars trilogy. I've taken that one step further with my family taking them to the midnight showing of all the movies they want to see :(  Other then Star Wars I love Back to the Future, Goonies, Die Hard, the Rocky movies, Indiana Jones, Gremlins, Terminator, Karate Kid etc etc ;)  I collect most of the 80s toy lines including Star Wars, GI Joe, He-Man, Indiana Jones, Transformers, LJN wrestling superstars etc etc ;)  I also collect sports figures and of course Garbage Pail Kids. My parents and grandparents spoiled me :( Some of my best memories were just being with them searching the stores for either the newest toys or the always hard to find GPKs. 1st series was always hard to find so we'd have to hit many stores to find them and same thing when series 2 hit. I collect these for all the nostalgia and emotions they bring back. My kids help me open all the new stuff and my youngest loves them too.  Sorry for the long post but that's just a small little glimpse into my background :(
    Thanks,
    Keith

    Welcome to the forum :( I see you have a lot of expertise with the 80's so it'll be cool to hear your thoughts on the subject in the general discussion and general collectibles, especially Star Wars!  -image- -image-
