    Hey guys,

    I decided to try something different this week, I've interviewed three collectors' wives about how they feel about certain aspects of their partners' collecting. I should state clearly that the collectors in question have similar interests in G1, pre-G1 and pre-production stuff etc. It is by no means a picture of the community as a whole or even representative of a significant portion of collectors and their partners/friends, just a tiny corner of the TF universe. It shouldn't come as too much of a surprise then that a lot of the answers were quite similar, but I hope there's something interesting in it for you all.

    I like the perspective of the article. It's one you don't hear about often with any sort of collecting articles.

    Great article, even posted it on Facebook and tagged my wife and stated how much I appreciate her for supporting me and the hobby and that I love her....

    She replies "So what did you order and when is it arriving?"...I love her and lol at her.

    Thank you so much for the kind words guys, had no idea if this one would go down well or not as I didn't feel it would be entirely representative of a large portion of the community, just the three people interviewed. It's very good to hear it's struck a few chords here and there :) 

    All the best
