That's wonderful! I only got into it around May last year, when I graduated high school. Since then, I've been collecting =) it's a great hobby. You can start out small because they don't cost too much if you get them at Walmart, Kmart, Hastings, etc and then you can save and eventually start buying the real expensive ones. I want to save up and buy G1 Jetfire for my boyfriend... cuz that's his favorite. But, I did manage to get him Mirage =D
