Popular Toy Lines I DON’T Collect (Because Not Every Toy Collector is The Same)

Hello, and thank you for joining The Duke of Toys on another written episode in the vast world of toy collecting. Here on this channel, my goal as a toy collector is to take you down the road of toy collecting from a gentleman’s perspective. Although I am only 20 years old, I’ve already noticed that the art of being a gentleman has been vastly lost, and what I can contribute to the toy community and the collector’s sphere is how a gentleman, rogue, scoundrel, and warrior can use toys to up his chivalry and find ways to stand out in a world of entitled collectors.

I had an observation recently, and as a gentleman, it was my job to ponder it and not react. Reacting is for moose ape crybabies and not the actions of a level headed warrior. So with that, the topic I am going to discuss today is that of the toys I choose not to collect.

And believe me– there are many of them.

I really don’t understand the trend of everyone revering the exact same toys. It’s sort of weird. The worst part about it is the aggression it brings out in the toy community. Part of being a swaggering smirking rogue scoundrel like me is knowing how to digest on my anger and laugh at yours. Passive aggressive, perhaps, but effective– well actually, you’re the one who looks like a jerk now, Dumb Bitch.

Call it smug of me to discuss such a topic, but I am just so turned off by the fact that many toy collectors find the need to collect the exact same things. How is anything rare or unique when you can just pick it up off a shelf? How do you stand out or have anything over anyone when the toys you collect are the same as theirs?

It’s a harrowing and humbling moment when you realize that your collection is very special and unlike the typically collection you see in the toy community. I often have to defend my position and let people know that I am in fact a true toy collector– even if my collection is the Lone Wolf and doesn’t reflect their own. If part of being a gentleman means you’re different and hard to understand, then I will accept my fate with grace. And so, with this being said, here are the most common toys in the toy community that I DO NOT collect:

  • Power Rangers
  • Marvel Legends
  • Transformers
  • G.I. Joe
  • He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
  • WWE Wrestling Figures
  • Any other wrestling figures
  • LEGO
  • Funko Pop! (ugh, my fingers are shuddering)
  • Ninja Turtles
  • Terminator
  • Mythic Legions
  • Storm Collectibles
  • Hot Toys
  • 80s Toys
  • 90s Toys
  • 2000s Toys
  • 2010 Toys
  • Anime Toys
  • Baby Toys
  • Blind Bag Toys
  • NECA
  • Super7
  • Prequel Star Wars
  • McFarlane Toys
  • Model Kits
  • DC Toys
  • Mezco Toyz
  • Video Game Toys
  • Horror Toys
  • Blind Bag Toys
  • Raspberry Toys
  • Lady Toys
  • Tarter Control Toys……….

Ah….it truly does feel good to be such a unique and special toy collector.
