Dear Sts Friends:

Well, I've recounted my collection, and here is the grand total, revised, of course:

1064, not counting accessories.

Okay, so, I was close, I suppose. Anyway, no really new additions, but I'm waiting for two boxes, one from ebay, the other from Happy Hen Toys. Boy am I glad I found this topic. Now I can fill you in about the new additions for my collection whenever I want, or whenever I get something. Hey, whoever started this topic, thank you, thank you, thank you! Anyway, I looked for more figures tonight at VOA, and found nothing. Figures (No pun intended, but laugh if you want). Anyway, like I said, I looked, and found nothing. So, hopefully my boxes come soon. Well, I guess that's the news for now, so I'll post again in this topic if there's more to tell you.

Dear Sts Friends:

Well, today I got some figures as christman gifts, and so the total of models in my collection is 1096 if I did the math right, that is. Anyway, I have 17 Collecta figures, and 235 AAA figures, but I'm not sure about the other brands yet. Anyway, I just thought I'd give you all an update as to how things are in my collection. Anyway, that's the news, so I'll report again if there's more news.

Dear Sts Friends:

Well, I've done it, I've passed the mark of 1100 figures. The Current total of all the figures I have is currently 1115. I'm hoping to get more soon, so keep your eyes peeled for more news. Also, the three AAA mollusks that I ordered arrived today in the mail, so that's great news. Boy do I love this hobby. Anyway, I'll be sure and write you all when there's more news, but for now there's nothing more to report.

PostSubject: Playmobil and lego: Should they be counted as accessories?   How many models in your collection, and how long have you been collecting for? - Page 3 EmptyMon Jan 04, 2021 8:57 pm

Dear Sts Friends:

Hi, my question is important as it affects the number of models in my collection. Let's say that a collector like myself collects not only figures but Lego and Playmobil too. Well, what do you do if you want to count the people and animals of Playmobil and lego? Do you count these as accessories, or not? If anyone else collects these brands, your input would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Aschuck

I would count Lego and Playmobil animals and people as figures in your collection. If you collect them for themselves and not as accessories to something else, then they are as legitimate as any Schleich or Safari figure.

I don't collect those figures, but I don't think saying some brands count as legitimate figures and others don't is right. They are all worthy to the right person.

Dear Sts Friends:

Hey, whoever just replied, thank you so much for clarifying what I wrote earlier. It makes sense now, I suppose, and so I guess I'll have to recalculate my full total of the models in my collection. Well, let's see, the last I checked, the total was at 1216, but as we all know that could change. Anyway, there's nothing else to report on my end for now, so I'll write again if there's nore news.

I have one Playmobil animal in my collection (the set it came in is in a box in the closet because I don't care about the other parts). But I definitely count it!

Hi guys,

Hey, here it is, the revised total of figures in my collection:

1228, if I did the math correctly. Anyway, there's other news, which is just this, that next week, I might be getting some lego parts from a friend of mine. So that could mean more people. Anyway, that's the news for now, so I'll write again if there's more.

PostSubject: Should Plush animals be counted too?   How many models in your collection, and how long have you been collecting for? - Page 3 EmptyThu Jan 07, 2021 7:15 am

Dear Sts Friends:

Hi guys,

Hey, I was thinking, when counting up my collection, should I count the plush / bead-filled / sand-filled animals too? Just wondering, because I do collect plush and sand filled animals. I also have a few Barbie dolls. Should those be counted too? Well, if anyone has any thoughts on this dilemma, then let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Aschuck

Some of us collect Plush, and some of us don't, so I think it would depend on your collecting interests! Very Happy Both hard models and plush ones still represent the animal, and so I would definitely call both an 'animal replica', and so I think, if you collect plush, these should definitely be counted in your total! Very Happy
I collect plush dogs too, because they are still replicas of the animal I love, and I haven't counted my collection but if I did I would include these! Very Happy Hope this helps!

Dear Sts Friends:

Hey, thanks for clarifying about the question I asked earlier. It really helped me out. Well, now I'll have to recount my collection entries, and then I can show you the real total. Also, in my collection, I have many brands of sand filled animals, including some unbranded ones. These are mostly ones I've picked up at resale shops and other places like that. One time, I went to VOA twice, and both times, I found a very large hand made frog, filled with micro beads. Now is that cool, or what? Anyway, both of these frogs are now in my collection. Also, does anyone else collect sand filled animals, or am I the only collector of these? Just wondering. No new additions as of right now, but that might change. I'm going to Hobby Lobby tomorrow, so we'll see what figures that yields. Also, Dad has agreed to do an ebay order with me, so we'll see what that holds. And, I guess that's the news for now. If any more new additions come my way, I'll let you know.

Dear Sts Friends:

Well, if I've done the math correctly, the total of models in my collection is 1461, oh wait, that's not right, because I'm counting the accessories too. Oh well, I guess I'll have to do the math again. I have, however, counted up my plush and sand filled collection, and have included them in my totals of entries in my database. Now all I have to do is add up the numbers. Well, that's it for news as of now, so I'll write if there's more.

Dear Sts Friends:

Okay, here it is, the final total, as of now. The Total is: 1298, if I did the math right. Anyway, I'm going to VOA tomorrow, so that might affect the total, if I find anything to buy there, so we'll see what I find. Anyway, that's the news for now, so I'll write again, when there's more news.

Dear Sts Friends:

Today, I looked at my total of figures, as written about in a word document, and this was the result, if I did the math right:

1292.

That total is the total of animals, people, and other stuff that is not an accessory. I'm hoping to find more things for my collection soon, so we'll see what comes of all this ordering and what not. In the meantime, I'm again on the hunt for AAA figures, especially the Mollusk replicas. Man, those figures are nice. The problem is, how does one get a hold of them? At this point, I don't know. Any advice about this dilemma would be much appreciated. Anyway, if I get any more news as far as new figures goes, then I'll let you know.
