Hey guys, I've been collecting for just over a week now. Please remember I'm a new collector, so don't expect anything amazing. However, I'm proud of what I've got so far. :thumbsup:

Also want to say a big thanks to Ericnilla and keywolf who have sold me models this week - they may recognise them on my display. :thanks:

Thanks. Many of my models were collected originally 20 years ago, but there are quite a few that I have purchased recently. I'm leaning towards a focus on neons at the moment yes, so if you think you can help then check out my needs list below. :thumbsup:

sorry man, just started collecting MIMP myself, i only have maybe 20 figs so far, after collecting Boglins for the past year and getting down to just 1 mini Boglin to complete the set i decided to broaden my collecting,

i did start M.U.S.C.L.E. but after getting a handful and seeing just how many there are (and how much people spend on them) i decided to make that collection a 'moderate' one i.e. as and when i get some,

but if i ever get any doubles at all, i'll hit you up dude :good:

Sounds good to me. I'll do the same for you when I get a few more doubles. At the moment I've only got two series 1 and four series 2 doubles. I also collected Boglins back in the day, but just sold them on eBay a couple of days ago. As for M.U.S.C.L.E. they look pretty cool but can't compete with MIMP! :starwars:

Hey guys, over the next week or so I'll be posting updated pictures of my MIMP collection now that I have been re-collecting for around one month (starting with series 2). This is not so much to show off what I've got so far, but more as a way of again thanking those members who have sold to me/traded with me and who I hope will continue to do so in order to help me continue my collection goals. Cheers. :thumbsup:

Coming on nicely ;)
Series 2 was my first set to completed, blue was the easiest to finish only having one rare figure.

Do you display them at home?

Cheers buddy - I still currently display series 1 and 2 as they are in the first post, in my spare room, but I've basically got too many to fit on there now so it's eventually just going to be series 1 I think. :thumbsup: I'll take a pic of how series 1 is coming along in a few days.

I'm more than happy with how things are going with my collections at the moment. A big thanks to all those LRG members who have helped me to get this far. :thumbsup:

I know picture quality isn't great, but you get the gist. :good:

Wow you built up your collection FAST.

Very nice stuff.

I decided early on to only go after my favorite figure instead of putting in the effort to make any complete sets cause i didn't think i could have pulled it off. Apparently it can be done and the most impressive part is that you didn't just throw money at it, you actually dealt with sellers/traders here and paid very decent prices on ebay. Good job man.

Cheers buddy, yeh I've been more than happy with what I've paid and who I've dealt with so far. I know certain figures will be very tough to get, but there's no rush and if I can bag a bargain along the way then great stuff! :thumbsup:

Another non-MIMP related LRG in my collection:

A flesh coloured Critter from the first ever batch, sculpted by PlasticSoul and cast by Ericnilla. Very lucky to have this little guy, plus the custom box is sweet!

Hi man, nice collection. The slug zombies look cool - I read on here that they are relatively easy to get as you can buy each complete series in the shop, so I was wondering why are you not planning to get the other sets?

Series 1 certainly aren't easy to get - especially the 4 exclusives and especially if you live in the UK. You can buy the later series in 12 packs, but then you still need to get any exclusives that come only in 3 packs (16 figures in each series) I've got a full set of the best and hardest to come by series IMO so I'm quitting whilst I'm ahead :thumbsup:
