    I was just curious. I know we all, to some degree or another, collect TFs and/or other toys, but what else are you into? I know some of you have posted you video game setups and collections, and I've seen others post up their guns, be it Airsoft, paintball, or firearms. I was just curious.

    Myself, I've got too many. I'm an avid car nut. I have 2 '69 Camaros. (one's mine, one's the wifes), a '96 Impala SS, and a couple of imports. I like my video games, but don't have much time to play. I also like doing things with my kids. We build model cars together, and my oldest son is trying to build a train layout.

    What are my other TFW2005ers into? (besides toys)

    I'm a dancer. I do tap, ballet, jazz and modern. I'm in two of the companies at my school. It's actually my major - so I guess it's technically not a hobby.

    I'm an aspiring novelist, currently trying to rewrite a story I titled "Sailor Squadron" in hopes of getting it published. The original version is posted at fictionpress.com, but I really don't recommend anybody reading it. If you're wondering why, let's just say that the story really needs some serious work done to it (not to mention its nod to the Sailor Moon anime), so... just wait until I get the new version written before reading it, 'kay?

    I used to draw anime-style characters. If I had more free time, I would most likely try to draw pictures of my "Sailor Squadron" characters.

    I'm also a Disney aficionado, a budding history buff (areas of interest are World War II, the 1950s, and the history of my hometown), an anime fan, and listener of music from the 50s thru the 80s.

    My main hobby is comic strip art. This mostly manifests itself in ludicrously expensive but lovingly assembled hardcover collections that go out of print immediately. I'd like to eventually get some original art but haven't yet.

    My hobby is also my profession, studying and collecting insects. I have a very large collection of one beetle family I study. I am close to putting together two manuscripts I plan to submit for publications in a scientific journal. As soon as I am done with the illustrations, I will have it reviewed before I submit them. I am also working on a new species found in the US with my team. The third paper should be ready by spring. Other than writing/publishing, studying a family of beetles and illustrating; I do photography as well.

    I'm into biking, skating, working out and distance running. Two marathons so far and two races coming up this year. I also spend time with my dog, collect pop culture trivia, attend toy cons and I read a lot.

    I do a weekly science-fantasy webcomic. Over the past year I've gotten into GI Joe collecting, after just wanting to make an action figure of my lead character. I used a Scarlett for a base figure, and it' all been downhill from there. And then, there's the customizing of the TF and Joe figs.

    I tend to cycle through my other hobbies. PC video games, N scale model railroading, HO scale slot cars, and the occasional model building.

    Ummm....Pearl Jam.

    How can a band be a hobby you ask?

    Well I have seen them 14 times, with only 4 of those being local shows, so I travel to see them.

    And I collect show posters. I have all the shows I've been to, and then a couple others of ones I really like the design of. And they are limited silkscreen prints, so they are like art! Or at least thats what I tell myself!

    And I guess I collect Pearl Jam t-shirts as well. I have probably around 20 or so, I think, I dunno.

    I like collecting/repairing/building/installing emergency lights (like you see on tow trucks, fire trucks, police cars, etc.) Kind of expensive, but I enjoy it. I've got 3 lightbars so far, in various forms of completion, but I've also built a directional LED bar, and am building a second one. I also installed a lightbar, 2 LED lightheads and a couple of strobe bulbs into our company's work truck. Someday hope I'll be able to do it as a job.

    Aside from the toy stuff:

    Video Games
    Comics
    Anime
    Astronomy
    I'm a huge movie geek
    Voice Acting
    Drawing, though it's getting rarer and rarer
    I make dumb ass videos on Youtube
    uh, stuff

    Number one above all is music though. I listen to a ton of it, and I create my own - on guitar, and electronically. My absolute greatest passion~
