So, this is a collection thread a little different from some of the others... It's for those of us who still have a tendency to carry some LRGs with us from place to place.

Do you put them in a tin, or straight into the pocket? And, the beauty is, it can change from day to day.

 

So... What's in your pocket?

For instance (and I can't post pics from work, but I can later), I have a watch tin, that holds 6-8 FOA figures, that I keep on me just in case work or traffic gets halted for whatever reason.

Other people do this sort of thing?  Wild....I just assumed it was a personal compulsion...

 

I've been known to carry these guys, off and on, 'for luck'.  The selection isn't random, each has a reason for tagging along.

I actually just had lunch with a member, and though we didn't set up a trade, we gave each other some plastic goodness. So I have these cosmix in my coat pocket right now. And half a ghost I wanted to show him that was made of a harder plastic instead of the usual rubber.

I don't carry LRG around much anymore, although
I do tend to keep a few sheets of printer paper folded into quarters in my pocket to doodle on at work when I'm bored.

Here are a few of the fevered scrawlings lurking in the nether regions of my pocket...

I don't carry anything in my pocket as I sit and stand allot (try having minor mole in your pocket all day and you will understand.) But here is my desk I get to see for all of 30 min a day.

Gummi Bears were pretty much the coolest to me for a long time.

That Twitch figure from toy story is one of my favorite figures (Cooler to me than almost any battle beasts or MIMP)! I can't explain why, as I don't care too much for Toy Story. I think it was just awesome construction, proportions and colors! (the mini one not the big one, the big ones are awful!)

I used to have a flesh MUSCLE claw keychain that I made and carried it around for years. Now its an upgrade to a metal MUSCLE claw. It can be used as a weapon I guess.

When I took a new job a couple of years ago I brought a different Muscle with me to work everyday, working my way through my flesh set. It made me appreciate all the lame figures I had always ignored. After that I did it again with a mixed set. Then I tried Battle Beasts but many of those guys have spikes, and that was no fun.

I used to always carry a M.U.S.C.L.E., either New Sunshine, Puyo Puyo, Mito or Nakano-san (the announcer) in the front pocket of the t-shirt under my maintenance uniform, but lately I've been mixing it up with some of these Robo Monsters made by Giochi Preziosi in the early '90s.

I got about 50€ worth of these guys from TheJoker all the way over in Italia, and they're really frickin' cool!

I wish they were more accessible/available in the states because I'd get loads more, but they were apparently only sold in Italy and Spain. :(

(edited to add 2nd not-so-much clearer picture)

I've only started playing around with the idea of carrying a dude with me again, but I used to do it all the time. 

 

For a long time I carried this Hulkbuster Super Hero Squad figure with me everywhere. I didn't really like the line, it was too goofy for my tastes, but this figure, from the paintjob to the mold to the limited articulation, was perfect.
