    I'm too old for this...

    I thought they would go away by now... I mean, I'm 21 years old,
    but the feelings are still there. I'm so pathetic. Maybe if I admit
    it to a bunch of strangers I'll be able to move on. You know, like
    "Alcoholics Anonymous."

    My name is ethic, and I still want to play with Action Figures.

    I don't do it, but that's not by choice. It's mainly because I don't
    have access to toys. If there was a GI Joe near me right now, I'd
    probably pick it up and start playing. There are times that I walk
    by toys in a store and think "ooh, imagine what I could do with that."
    It's not normal! What's wrong with me?!

    I'm afraid these feelings are going to last forever. Pretty soon I'll
    be 40, sitting on my bedroom floor in my pajamas, and playing
    with Action Figures while cartoons are on the television.

    Come on, I need a support group. Someone else has to be suffering
    from this condition...

    I love my toys...but they're of a different age group(all sort of electronics and wiring, along with mechanical stuff). PC's, all forms of video displays, video games, stereos/professional installation audio equipment, cars, arcade machnies, aerial raid sirens, etc. etc.

    Maybe a different age group, but I seriously get all giddy and happy when going to buy a new one, or playing with a new one/seeing a new one that I have to buy(even thuogh it's totally impractical), etc.

    Just ask Hammer!
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    And you are worried about that? I'm looking forward to that! GI Joes...man, I had some memories with those. I had all of these cool accessories too like tanks and stuff. *sigh* Those were the days...

    Heh action figures, that is kinda weird. But hey as long as you are having fun that is all that matters If it makes you feel any better I still play NES roms from time to time and I'm around your age heh.

    One of the principle reasons people have children is to play with their toys. Another is being able to go and watch films that childless people would get funny looks at. We don't have children but we have a niece we can borrow, we watch Harry Potter with her, I wouldn't have seen it had it not been for her.

    That's about how I saw it, too - I went with my friend and his 8 year old sister. She was asleep by the end, but we were glued to the movie screen.

    i never had any GI Joe's because my mom was always very antiviolent about my toys. i still get out my legomen and mess with them occasionally when im bored. there's nothing wrong with that. it just means you still know how to have fun.
    yum, yum potatoes!!!!!

    You can only be young once, but you can be immature forever. Rock on Ethic! Action figures are awesome! Especially barbie dolls with plastic underwear

    Remember the dude that talked real fast in their commercials? I think I saw him on some show once as the Guiness Record holder for world's fastest talker or something. I wonder what happened to him...
