I loooooooooove lists! Lists rock! Ahem.
In the style of the "What next?" thread, dealing with what you collected after SW ended in the 1980s, I propose a timeline. Unless your collecting has always been since the same time, when did you collect what you collected? For me, by my age:
2-5: Tonka trucks
3-11: Die-cast cars
5-12, 15-present: Star Wars
9-13: Hats, pins, buttons, posters, erasers
12-18: Comic books
15-19: Sports trading cards
16-present: Orange soda/juice cans
Am I too anal-retentive, or do others see their collecting history this way?
