    Surely, collectors will deny or ignore everything. Damn!

    "No. My display doesn't look like a shrine to plastic toys."

    "No. Having close to a hundred toys is not obsessive."

    "Yes, I have a girlfriend."

    This is going to be awesome.

    Hahahaha.

    Now I really need to move my collection from the dining room. Maybe pack up some.

    Wait, what's so bad about it? The fact that it makes everyone looks crazy, or the fact that it exposes that everyone is crazy.

    There are collectors who build entire buildings for their collections. Car collectors are the most guilty. They fill barns, garages, lots, and rental facilities with their collection. Ive seen a few sports nuts too that have collections so large that they have no room for their kids. A collector isnt very different from a hoarder to an average person. Personally I get crap from all my friends when they see my shelves full of Transformers. "Its a kids toy" they say. I always smile and ask them when the last time a kid spent 380 dollars on a mere "toy". I also make it a point to illustrate that I KNOW exactly where my money is going. Most people just drink it away on the weekends. Screw what those scrubs think!

    well in car collectors defense, they can buy a car for dirt cheap fix it up and display or maybe re-sell for a "rarer" car, they can make a living off of their hobby, also car collectors are usually rich.

    They should have named it after Hoarders instead of Intervention, for added stigma effect.

    I do believe SeanxLong is going to be in an episode. I've seen his house and it's quite full of toys.

    I just hope this doesn't end up just being another version of "My Crazy Obsession".
